Healthcare technology firm careMESH has implemented HL7 FHIR-based integrations with electronic medical record (EMR) vendors Epic and Cerner to support users in complex clinical programmes.

These integrations will allow Navigate, the company’s SaaS solution, to manage patients from referral to treatment completion while synchronising patient’s data with EMR of the hospital.

NAVIGATE, a configurable patient workflow management system, synchronises patient appointments, demographics and identifiers, encounters, procedures, and many more.

This makes it easier for programme coordinators to manage patients throughout the process.

The patient workflow management system automatically keeps the complete healthcare team up to date as patients progress through their treatment.

Furthermore, NAVIGATE supports various workflows which the different clinical programmes need, from routine procedures such as valve replacements to complex interventions like organ transplantations.

It helps in accelerating the throughput and improving the utilisation of hospital as well as care resource.

The system eliminates spreadsheets, paper folders, and checklists to manage patient treatment.

careMESH CEO Dr Peter Tippett said: “By adding these integrations with Epic and Cerner, timely clinical data flows between the EMR and NAVIGATE to support even the most complex program workflows. And because we make this happen using HL7 FHIR APIs, the solution is ‘future proofed’ and easy to implement.

“Not only do the APIs eliminate the duplicate data entry that many standalone software products suffer from in the hospital environment, but it gives clinical programs using careMESH at-a-glance visibility into the status of each program and helps them efficiently manage patients throughout their entire care journey.”
