Interfaces using Lifepoint’s EMRHub

The Redox engine is a proven interoperability solution. It reduces the time required to create interfaces to link two or more electronic health records (EHRs) together. When you use this powerful tool, you will not have to worry about maintaining so many programs and interfaces before you can send and receive vital patient data.

Here are some of the key benefits of using the Redox interoperability engine.

1. Enhance the patient’s experience

With the Redox engine, you can connect your EHR to any major patient engagement platform. This will reduce the cost and duration of the project. Docent Health did this when they linked their patient engagement platform with the EHR used by Hospital for Special Surgery.

Instead of spending several months tweaking the EHR and Docent’s platform, they opted for the Redox engine API. So, each of them could use it to pull in or push out clinical data using the same JSON framework.

2. Boost patient outcomes through improved transportation

Effective patient transportation is key to improving the quality of care. Beyond meeting up with appointments, transportation affects other aspects like moving patients to temporary housing or taking them to a food bank. Thousands of patients delay or miss their care daily due to inadequate transportation. When an organization coordinates its transport efficiently, it eliminates bottlenecks while reducing time and costs.

To help providers and care coordinators improve patients’ commuting experience, Roundtrip partnered with Lyft to reduce transportation costs by 45%. The Redox engine enabled providers to gain instant access to data on transportation in all facilities, boosting efficiency, cost, and patient experience.

3. Streamline processes

Patients generally rate engagement and satisfaction low in the healthcare industry. Therefore, providers need to use technology to increase patient satisfaction and follow-through on the instructions they give to patients.

One solution that can work is a chatbot. However, this tool must be properly integrated with the provider’s EMR and CRM to improve the patients’ experience. By partnering with an integration provider like Redox, it is possible to eliminate many time-consuming phone conversations.

Chatbot developers can partner with Redox to pull out vital patient data and provide a personalized, satisfying experience to patients. This will get patients excited about using their providers’ solutions. Patients won’t need to download and learn new apps. They simply need to chat with providers using intelligently integrated text-based chatbots.

4. Make PRO collection easier and faster

PRO is an acronym for Patient-Reported Outcomes. This data allows healthcare providers to quantify the value they offer their patients. PRO data consists of facts about how patients are faring before and after surgery. Providers use this data to set goals, negotiate contracts, and improve marketing campaigns. The data also helps to perform accurate patient research.

With the integration tools provided by Redox engine, it is possible for providers and their developer partners to create PRO tools. These tools can track patient complications and readmissions. They can also integrate perfectly with their EHR to prevent manual or duplicate data entry. The capture rate and data integrity of this type of solution will be high and it won’t disrupt the normal workflow of clinical staff.
