The partnership and joint market collaboration aims to help healthcare provider organizations safely deliver more patient value from their greatest digital asset, patient data.
IDENTOS Inc., a leading digital identity and access control technology company, today announced a collaboration with MedicaSoft, a leading provider of cloud-based, HIPAA-compliant software solutions and health information technology services. Together, they have a shared vision for the future of digital healthcare and have a highly compatible set of solutions and services ready to help healthcare providers fully realize the value of their data.
Healthcare challenges they’re tackling, together
Today, our healthcare systems are burdened with various health platforms that silo data and fail to deliver the necessary data to its required destination. Healthcare providers want greater autonomy over patient data while maintaining confidentiality of the data being used and stored and having the ability to share it appropriately. Beyond this, the ONC/TEFCA and the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) Section 42 regulations mandate digital access to personal health information on demand and securing required consent to share information. Currently, there is no easy way to safely mobilize sensitive health data externally or across a health system without advanced authorization and consent.
A first of its kind solution in the healthcare market
The FHIR specification, the standard for exchanging healthcare information electronically, is now the basic requirement in the U.S. However, compliance isn’t enough to safely put data in motion. A layer of authorization and data control is also required to help providers fully realize the value and impact of the data being collected.
Under their partnership, IDENTOS and MedicaSoft will fill the gaps in long-standing data sharing and access challenges by offering a first of its kind solution to the healthcare market, including:
-FHIR compliant data strategies
-FHIR compliant implementation
-Fine-grain resource and scoped access
-Consented data sharing and revocation
-Centralized policy management
-Provider and patient app support
These enhanced products and services will ensure both data interoperability and seamless sharing of health information between providers and existing applications.
