Alliance Community Hospital in Alliance, Ohio, which uses Meditech’s EHR platform, is applying the Argonaut Project's FHIR specifications to customers for the purpose of document exchange.
Meditech claims it is the first EHR vendor in the CommonWell Health Alliance to deploy FHIR to provide near real-time access to a participating patient's data. Embedded directly into the EHR, these CommonWell services include patient enrollment capabilities and C-CDA exchange, opening the door for more comprehensive sharing of discrete segments of data in the future, such as medication and allergy data.
"We're excited to be at the forefront of interoperability breakthroughs and technical innovation in healthcare," said David Shroades, vice president of operations and CIO at Alliance Community Hospital, in a prepared statement. "Even more importantly, we're excited to bridge gaps in patient care, and deliver the best outcomes possible for our community."
More than 9,300 provider sites are live on CommonWell services across the nation, and more than 30 million individuals are enrolled.
