Change Healthcare, the Nashville-based health IT vendor, announced at HIMSS19 this week that it will be providing “free interoperability services” that will run on the Amazon Web Services (AWS) cloud.
The infrastructure services, namely record locator service, identity management, and document retrieval solution with protection of patient privacy, support a comprehensive range of use cases, according to company officials.
In collaboration with AWS, Change Healthcare is able to provide a scalable, secure, and highly-available cloud service, its officials attest. The interoperability services allow for protection of patient privacy, enforcing consent by leveraging open standards like FHIR, HL7 and open application programming interfaces (APIs) to integrate with EHR (electronic health record) systems.
“AWS provides services to support those who want to implement ubiquitous healthcare interoperability,” Shez Partovi, M.D., director of worldwide healthcare and life sciences, business and market development at Amazon Web Services, said in a statement. “AWS provides a secure, agile and scalable infrastructure, with access to over 100 HIPAA-eligible services, enabling Change Healthcare to support the delivery of critical and accurate medical information from a variety of sources across the healthcare industry. We’re excited to support enhanced care quality and a better provider and patient experience, all while driving down the cost of care.”
For more information on how to access these free services, Change Healthcare executives are telling folks to contact Faisal Mushtaq, senior vice president and general manager, clinical networks, at the company.
