A National Health Interoperability Platform
To create a healthcare system with effective information exchange, organizations need more than a series of connections. They need assurance that the data being exchanged is meaningful and that it will be delivered when and where they need it.
While health information exchange has made tremendous strides over the past few years, unreliable patient data identifiers, information blocking, and disparate systems continue to cause challenges. These, paired with varying data standards, have created a disconnected healthcare system that is difficult for patients and providers to navigate.
The Health Interoperability Platform (HIP) was created to solve these issues and ensure that healthcare organizations and patients have the data they need to make informed and timely treatment decisions. The platform supports a diverse set of clinical use cases, powers fundamental healthcare workflows, and helps improve outcomes and health equity by ensuring providers have efficient access to actionable information.
The Primary Features Included in the Platform are:
Master Patient Index (MPI)
Scan multiple systems to identify the appropriate patient using heuristic matching algorithms, referential data sources, and demographic data.
Record Locator Services (RLS)
The RLS indexes patient record locations and uses them to optimize future queries. Together, the MPI and RLS make discovering a patient and their health data more efficient.
Data Processing Engine
Health Gorilla’s data processing engine aggregates, de-duplicates, and normalizes fragmented records into a standard FHIR format. The result is a longitudinal, high-quality, and actionable record for each patient.
Health Gorilla’s national health data repository enables efficient querying by storing raw data from external data sources and normalized, longitudinal FHIR resources. It employs extensive perimeter security and penetration prevention, data encryption, retention, and auditing in compliance with SOC2 Type 2 and HITRUST data governance policies and procedures.
Health Gorilla's web-based Patient Chart view makes reviewing and interacting with patient data easy. It presents a consolidated patient record, which is browsable and searchable by section and allows providers to execute various clinical workflows, including placing electronic orders, sending referrals to other providers, reviewing analytical reports, and gaining data insights for their treated populations.
FHIR RESTful APIs
FHIR resource APIs have become the national standard for organizing and exchanging healthcare information. Health Gorilla provides full interoperability between FHIR resources and legacy standards, including IHE, X12, CCDA, Document-Based Exchange, Direct, and HL7.
