Redox Healthcare Integration Unlocks Data Trapped in Legacy Formats

Patient information is difficult for healthcare leaders and administrators to locate. It is often siloed across multiple IT systems and organizations and spread across databases that don't speak to each other.  

Improving the flow and unification of data across healthcare systems, known as interoperability, helps organizations run more effectively, improving patient care and enabling people to live healthier lives. The good news is there is a growing body of regulatory requirements in the U.S. that reinforce interoperability of patient data as a priority for providers and health plans.  

The Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology Cures Act Final Rule requires that patients have secure access to their electronic health information to use and share, and the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services Interoperability and Patient Access Rule requires that health plans participating in federal exchanges share claims data with patients electronically. 

The bad news is that legacy system data is difficult to transfer to the cloud to meet those regulations. That is why Redox and Google Cloud are in a new partnership.  

The Redox healthcare integration platform helps payers, providers and digital health organizations abstract the complexity of legacy protocols and outdated systems to build longitudinal views of their patients/members in Google Cloud. 

With Redox Healthcare Integration, available on Google Cloud Marketplace, health plans, providers, life science, medical device companies and digital health organizations incorporate standards like HL7v2, C-CDA, X12 and DICOM into FHIR, leveraging existing provider integrations and libraries. This makes it faster and easier for organizations to use Google Cloud's Healthcare API and Healthcare Data Engine, enabling an interoperable, longitudinal record of patient data. 

"Healthcare organizations are transforming using new applications and analytics tools driven by cloud technology," said Redox CEO Luke Bonney. "Together, Redox and Google Cloud enable providers and health plans to maximize the use of their legacy system data in a single cloud database up to 80% faster than other solutions." 

By easily onboarding health data from legacy systems into Google Cloud products like Healthcare Data Engine and Healthcare API, organizations can build longitudinal views to better serve their patients and members.
