When Redox was founded in early 2014, our mission was simple. Deliver the best “modern API” for developers building digital health solutions.
At the time, such a thing didn’t exist. While “digitized,” the majority of our nation’s healthcare data was stored in on-premise servers. Data exchange between systems was almost entirely facilitated via event-driven interfaces. All of that data was structured in healthcare specific formats (HL7v2, CDA, X12) that most full-stack developers had little to no familiarity with.
From our perspective, the rate limiting factor to healthcare innovation wasn’t good ideas or customer demand. It was developers with healthcare information technology (HIT) expertise. So we set out to make that a non-issue.
Last month, Redox’s modern API for healthcare data passed the 36 billion mark for messages processed on behalf of our customers. We can proudly share that we have delivered on our initial mission.
Today, a developer tasked with solving the “last mile” problem of healthcare data exchange doesn’t need an advanced degree in HIT. They don’t need a team familiar with establishing and maintaining VPNs. They simply need to read our documentation, talk with our team, and have a customer that has authorized the desired integration workflow. The barrier to innovation in healthcare is no longer developers with HIT expertise.
But that doesn’t mean we have realized the enormous potential of digital health. A decade of industry development has mostly served to introduce more complexity and raise expectations. Today’s innovators face new challenges.
- Healthcare organizations are more selective than ever.
Sophisticated workflow integration and end-user experience optimization is mandatory.
- Startups face a difficult funding environment.
Product teams need to demonstrate the value of their product faster than ever.
- Procurement processes limit product adoption velocity.
Alternative trust models and distribution paths are in high demand.
- Patient identity management remains difficult.
The growth of direct to consumer and retail healthcare businesses adds more complexity to an already complicated problem.
- Utilization of AI/ML/NLP tools is limited by legacy data formats.
Deployment to health cloud environments offered by Google, Amazon, and Microsoft is non-trivial.
- The rate of change in the industry is accelerating.
Keeping up with legislative changes, technical advances, and new delivery models is a full-time job.
Keeping up means our customers need the agility to respond and modularity across their technology stack. In response, Redox is evolving. In addition to our core product, we are unveiling four new products and professional services. These products were developed to enable a composable healthcare strategy for healthcare product teams, one that provides the ability to grow and react in the face of persistent change.
- Redox Nexus empowers healthcare product teams with the deepest level of data access and workflow integration on the market.
- Redox Nexus Lite helps startups demonstrate product value as quickly as possible.
- Redox Access enables clinical data exchange with thousands of organizations through a single legal agreement.
- Redox Chroma EMPI powered by Verato simplifies patient identity management for product teams managing large patient volumes.
- Redox Nova accelerates the adoption of powerful AI, machine learning, and natural language processing tools in Google, Amazon, and Microsoft’s respective health clouds.
- Redox Professional Services grants access to healthcare technology experts to help product teams solve complex challenges and strategize future initiatives.

Redox Nexus Lite
Demonstrate product value quickly
Nexus Lite is the result of nearly a decade of supporting the integration needs of digital health product teams. We have identified a collection of data exchange workflows that support the needs of many digital health products. Available workflows deliver essential data and can be executed predictably. We offer Nexus Lite at a reduced cost to startups because we know how hard it is for small teams to deliver integrated digital health solutions.
Nexus Lite is best suited for startup product teams looking to integrate for the first time using tried-and-true healthcare integration workflows. Learn more
Participate in national clinical networks
Access is the best way for product teams to access and contribute clinical data to thousands of providers with a single legal agreement.* Enjoy an optimized path to participation in national clinical networks like Carequality and DirectTrust. Search for patient records, request patient documents, send patient records, and respond to external inquiries as required by clinical networks with a single API.
Access is best suited for products that need to access clinical data from hundreds (thousands) of healthcare organizations but don’t need to deliver complicated data back to every customer. This is especially powerful for telehealth, patient referral, and care coordination products. Learn more about how Access helps you use clinical networks
*Each clinical network has unique eligibility requirements products must adhere to in order to leverage this product.
Redox Chroma EMPI powered by Verato
Solve patient identity challenges
At scale, confirming “John Doe” from Yale New Haven is the same “John Doe” at Johns Hopkins is surprisingly complicated. Today, 35% of denied claims are due to inaccurate patient matching and nearly 24% of all medical records are duplicates. In response to feedback directly from our customers about patient identity management complexity, we have partnered with Verato, to provide the industry-leading EMPI product to Redox customers.
Chroma EMPI powered by Verato provides a single source of truth for patient identity. Link patient identity records within and across multiple disparate data sources for higher quality decision-making, operational efficiency, and an improved patient experience.
Redox Chroma EMPI powered by Verato is best suited for any organization that struggles with patient identity challenges. Complex integrations with complicated patient databases lead to sunken revenue spent on manual reconciliation effort and poor patient experiences. Redox Chroma allows customers to add this functionality with their existing Redox API in record time. Learn more about Chroma EMPI powered by Verato
Accelerate the move to Google, Amazon, and Microsoft health cloud environments
One of the most exciting developments in digital health is the evolution of healthcare-specific cloud environments. Organizations today have the ability to take advantage of previously unavailable technology provided by industry leaders. Redox has partnered with Google Cloud, Amazon Web Services, and Microsoft Azure to support the translation and normalization of legacy data standards to FHIR. This ensures all health data can be ingested into clinical data repositories and used by cloud-native machine learning and AI tools to generate deeper patient and workflow insights.
Nova is best suited for organizations that are making a strategic investment in one of the listed health clouds and need a way to transform their existing data. Learn more about how Nova helps enterprises use the cloud
