Health Gorilla recently announced a membership with eHealth Exchange, the oldest non-profit healthcare information network in the United States. The membership with eHealth Exchange will supply our team, and clients access to an additional set of data sourced from 75% of all U.S. hospitals, 70,000 medical groups, 4,000+ pharmacies, and 61 state and regional HIEs.
eHealth Exchange has also built a robust network in more rural areas of the country and provides data from federal agencies, including the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA), the Department of Defense (DoD), and the Social Security Administration (SSA), and the Indian Health Service (IHS) enabling us to bring interoperability to previously siloed data.
The membership with eHealth Exchange will provide Health Gorilla and our customers access to eHealth Exchange’s vast array of connected care sites and increase our ability to expand healthcare interoperability services for patients, providers, payers, life insurers, diagnostic laboratories, public health officials, and digital health developers.
Since integrating with eHealth Exchange, Health Gorilla and our customers have seen promising results, with some customers seeing as much as a 30% increase in data available with outstanding query return times.
eHealth Exchange and its members will also benefit from Health Gorilla joining its network by being able to request patient data from Health Gorilla’s customers, including a breadth of digital health companies supplying data that can contribute to social determinants of health.
eHealth Exchange started as a federal program initiated by the Office of the National Coordinator for Health IT (ONC). They are now an independent, non-profit health information network and have created a rapidly growing community of exchange partners across the U.S. while remaining the principal way federal agencies share patient data.
Health Gorilla passed rigorous testing and security requirements to connect directly with eHealth Exchange and is excited to offer the convenience of this connection to new and existing customers using our Patient360 service. Now that the relationship is in place, our customers will be able to bypass the need for an individual connection with eHealth Exchange and can begin leveraging the network’s comprehensive data through existing integrations with Health Gorilla.
For additional information on Health Gorilla becoming a member of eHealth Exchange, please refer to the full press release.
If you are part of a digital healthcare organization and interested in expanding the data available to your physicians and patients, the Health Gorilla team is here to help. We will work with you to configure the connection between the Patient360 API, and your application based on your organization’s unique clinical data workflows and provide access to the Health Gorilla development sandbox. Our team of experts is available to answer any questions that come up through the testing and validation period.
