Redox, the leading electronic health record (EHR) integration platform, announced during a demo at Health2.0 they are rolling out new developer tools that will allow digital health application developers to integrate with drchrono, Allscripts, and athena demo environments through a single API. These demo environments will dramatically augment the suite of dev tools available to application developers to share data with any EHR used at the hospitals or clinics they work with.
“The more that interoperability barriers are reduced, the more innovation we should expect to see from app developers in healthcare.” said Niko Skievaski, cofounder of Redox, in his Tuesday morning presentation. “I’m excited that these EHR vendors have created paths for developers to interact with clinical data to create solutions with widespread impact.”
Access to sophisticated EHR demo environments empowers developers to build and test their products with integration in mind. Critical for ensuring new solutions fit seamlessly into existing workflows. The availability of a single API to interact with multiple EHRs will allow developers to focus on their product experience rather than the intricacies of custom integrations, and ultimately get their products to market faster. Furthermore, an application’s ability to demo an integrated product builds confidence when pitching to prospective health system customers.
“The drchrono team is excited to be working with the Redox team to help bridge the healthcare connection gap, connecting our EHR and medical billing platform to any health system through Redox.” Said Daniel Kivatinos, COO and co-founder of drchrono. “Redox is tapping directly into our healthcare API to enable our physicians to connect to any hospital network and health information exchange. We see a world together that is more connected, with the technology getting out of the way allowing physicians to do what is most important, taking care of their patients.”
