Intelligent Interoperability

The era of static document sharing is over.
Clinicians don't have time to manually parse through CCDs and other large documents. What they need is intelligent, FHIR-based, real-time access to the specific data they're looking for.

Today, MEDITECH is advancing the charge toward intelligent interoperability by enabling clinicians to search vast amounts of data inside and outside the EHR quickly and assemble the data in meaningful ways for better decision making. We're pioneering an intelligent approach to interoperability that leverages the power of artificial intelligence to support the wisdom and judgment of human intelligence.

Your platform for intelligent interoperability.

Healthcare today demands an EHR that's much more than a repository of data, but instead operates as a data platform — collecting, integrating, managing, analyzing, and presenting data in meaningful and actionable ways. This includes data from both inside and outside of your organization. MEDITECH Expanse is a powerful and scalable platform for healthcare organizations of all sizes, and MEDITECH Traverse is our robust interoperability toolset for securely connecting it to the world of data around you — whether that's a facility across town, your state or regional HIE, or a national data exchange.

Interoperability takes care to the next level, breaking down silos and making data more accessible to patients and providers. MEDITECH's approach to interoperability helps:

Physician icon

Boost Clinical Outcomes

When clinicians have access to comprehensive, real-time patient data — from both inside and outside of the EHR — they can make better, more informed decisions.

Empower icon

Empower Patients

Patients want and need access to their medical data. A patient who is informed about and engaged in their medical care is more likely to adhere to treatment recommendations, including medication regimens.

Strengthen Organizations

Interoperability enables innovative technologies that can reduce bottlenecks and facilitate automation, freeing staff and resources to engage in more meaningful, high-touch care.

Traverse's robust suite of interoperability tools includes:

  • Bi-directional data exchange through HL7 FHIR® for sharing member record data with all major EHR vendors.

  • Powerful interfaces for submitting and receiving orders and results to/from labs and other systems, with automated results notifications.

  • External connectors for secure EHR-to-EHR data sharing from Expanse to other EHRs, with context-aware functionality that eliminates the need to sign on again or re-identify patients.

Apps — the next frontier.

Ever since we launched Expanse, we've been on a mission to make EHRs easy and enjoyable to use and we've received some of the highest marks possible for usability and clinician satisfaction.

Now we're raising the bar again, opening Expanse to a growing family of trusted organizations and software developers who are building innovative solutions that securely connect to data in Expanse. They're testing their apps in our Greenfield Workspace environment, where they can execute APIs and test their applications against a real MEDITECH EHR. And they're joining the MEDITECH Alliance, an expanding ecosystem of partner organizations with proven, successful, and interoperable solutions.

Two leaders combine forces.

MEDITECH and Google Health have launched a powerful new search and summarization capabilities inside the Expanse EHR to reduce cognitive overload and help clinicians efficiently access the information they need to make the most informed decisions.

By embedding Google's powerful AI, Natural Language Model and search capabilities into Expanse, clinicians can surface data from legacy platforms, other health systems, labs, specialty care settings, and a variety of additional sources. Search results include concepts, not just word matches, along with abbreviations, medical jargon, even misspellings and related concepts. It scours unstructured data, scanned documents and handwritten notes — sorting, summarizing, and ranking results by relevance for quick review. That's the power of search and summarization by MEDITECH and Google Health.

        Traverse Exchange in Canada bridges communication across communities.

        Traverse Exchange Canada is a first-of-its-kind cloud-based interoperability network that enables the free flow of health information between multiple participating organizations, including other EHRs that comply with interoperability standards. Our subscription-based software-as-a-service solution provides clinicians with a more holistic view of their patients' care.

        • Cloud-based technology seamlessly connects participating organizations to each other and to Ontario Health using MEDITECH's record locator system.
        • Once patients opt in, providers receive a comprehensive picture of their record directly within the MEDITECH EHR — regardless of where care was provided.
        • Data is located beyond hospital walls, across jurisdictional or federal systems from a variety of sources.
        • Data can be viewed or consumed within the EHR as discrete data.

        "As an organization, we are committed to advancing interoperability as a means of improving healthcare delivery and outcomes. Traverse Exchange in Canada has enabled more Ontario organizations than ever to conveniently exchange key patient health data. We are very excited about being part of this network and look forward to further analyzing how to use this solution to work collaboratively amongst a wide breadth of institutions to ensure the health and well-being of our patients."

        "Our first strategy is always going to be, use MEDITECH if at all possible. We’re doing traditional HL7, we’re doing files from DR, we’re using an API, we’re using a contextual launch. We’re trying to make it where users can stay in the system they need to be in. MEDITECH thankfully has lots of options."

        Interoperability in action.

        MEDITECH is a leader in the use of FHIR-based standards to securely share clinical information with solution providers — like First Databank and GenomOncology — to present clinicians with the data and guidance they need, when and where they need it (right inside the EHR at the point of care). Patient engagement apps from vendors like Luma Health utilize our FHIR APIs. And we're proud to be an early stakeholder in the Cancer Moonshot initiative, which will define the USCDI+ cancer data elements required for submission via HL7 FHIR API.
