The end of September and the beginning of fall has brought with it some new features and welcomed updates to our core product offering. As they say, new season, new EHR integration platform (or something like that).
Too Many Tacos
This past week has been pretty exciting for us—we were out in Santa Clara to kick off Health 2.0 with a Redox-hosted happy hour which, judging by the sheer number of tacos consumed, was a smashing success. A few days later, it was time for Redox to get on stage and present during the Information Blocking, APIs & App Stores: The State of Play in Data Access panel. Niko demonstrated—in real time—our new suite of developer tools that allow digital health application developers to simulate integration with athena, drchrono, and Allscripts. These demo environments reduce the time needed to build out and test an application for three separate EHRs by essentially combining them into one.
We’re incredibly pumped about these unique sandboxes because of what they produce: applications that are capable of building and demonstrating their integrated solution prior to even approaching health system prospects. It’s a huge bonus to have a product that doesn’t need extensive testing or revision after a project is kicked off, and it helps establish credibility and trust during the sales cycle. A long time in the making, these tools are a win for us, application developers, and health systems, as they allow everyone to work, develop, and get products to market faster. Read more about it here, or if you’d like to see it in action, check out this quick video above of Niko demonstrating at Health2.0 how a few simple clicks in our API creates a new patient profile in three separate EHRs.
Another new feature we’re excited to debut this month is the Inventory Data Model. This model was designed to help health centers keep track of the inventory and supply throughout their (sometimes expansive) system sites. From dressing gowns and face masks to syringes and tongue-depressors, this functionality helps with billing, tracking, ordering, and generally keeping tabs on the supplies that are available in your health center.

Ultimately, these new features were born from customer demand, and we’re delighted to introduce new ways for our customers to innovate and bring amazing health solutions to market. We’re always on the lookout for ways to improve, and if you have any thoughts on how we could do that, we’d love to hear them. Reach out at [email protected] or leave a comment below.
