What problem does it solve for healthcare?
Patient data external to care facilities often requires secure ingestion and report creation. We created a stable data integration process while following HIPAA guidelines, which is critical to accessing this information.
What are the implications?
The data was available, but not being ingested and processed in a timely manner. Ultimately the reporting allowed for real time access and alerting for external patient medical encounters. This has allowed for immediate behavioral health intervention for high risk patients who need it most.
