Change Healthcare to provide free healthcare data interoperability services for all Americans on Amazon Web Services

Press releases may be edited for formatting or style
ORLANDO, Fla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--HIMSS19 Booth 3679—Change Healthcare today announced free clinical data interoperability services for the healthcare industry. The foundational, infrastructure services, namely record locator service, identity management, and document retrieval solution with protection of patient privacy, support a comprehensive range of use cases. By providing these services, Change Healthcare is paving the way for health IT interoperability that removes cost barriers, meets federally mandated requirements, and enables the potential for innovative offerings to better address value-based payment and consumer needs.

The interoperability services will run on the secure, scalable, and agile Amazon Web Services (AWS) Cloud, providing Change Healthcare with the ability to support better health outcomes, and transparency for patients and clinicians at scale across the United States.

Special-Pricing Available on Medical Displays, Patient Monitors, Recorders, Printers, Media, Ultrasound Machines, and Cameras.This includes Top Brands such as SONY, BARCO, NDS, NEC, LG, EDAN, EIZO, ELO, FSN, PANASONIC, MITSUBISHI, OLYMPUS, & WIDE.

Fundamentally patient-focused, the initiative is designed to enhance patients’ access to their medical records and support clinical decisions that influence medical outcomes. By eliminating cost-prohibitive barriers that have hampered open interoperability, it will help accelerate healthcare data interoperability and reduce providers’ burden by reducing time and effort needed to track down patients’ medical records from various silos across health care delivery systems.

“With consumers carrying an increasing share of the healthcare cost burden, the focus of interoperability services must be on empowering providers and patients with timely access to their data, so they can make better decisions,” said Kris Joshi, PhD, executive vice president and president, Network Solutions, at Change Healthcare. “With billions of dollars invested in electronic medical record systems, we are working with companies throughout the industry to make data available and useful to patients and providers wherever it is needed. Our goal is to eliminate cost as a barrier to national interoperability.”

In recent years, market trends like value-based payment programs and increasing consumerism have driven the need for prompt and complete access to clinical information. Given these trends and the expected 21st Century Cures Act regulations, along with the Trusted Exchange Framework and Common Agreement (TEFCA), the industry’s needs are rapidly evolving, presenting an opportunity to achieve nationwide interoperability.
