Becomes Carequality Implementer, Enabling Patient Data Sharing Nationwide
MedAllies, a leading multimodality Connectivity Services company, today announced creation of a new network achieving Carequality Implementer status providing its partners with access to more than 600,000 providers and 4,200 hospitals already enabled to share patient information via the framework. Carequality covers the large majority of U.S. providers, allowing healthcare organizations to query across the many implementing networks to retrieve data with one single HIPAA-compliant business agreement.
As a Carequality Implementer, MedAllies enables partners and their clients who opt-in to become Carequality Connections to exchange clinical summaries and on-board quickly without having to go through the Carequality technical certification process for themselves. A single connection with MedAllies allows partners to gain broad access to exchange with any other Carequality Connection, regardless of geography or technology. Partners can leverage MedAllies APIs to access existing networks and business relationships for care coordination and individual data sharing across providers, consumers, payers, government agencies, public health agencies, and others as the Carequality community grows.
“This is an important time for interoperability and seamless information exchange to care for a diverse population of patients,” said Alan Swenson, executive director of Carequality. “MedAllies becoming an implementer facilitates patient care to deliver health information to where and when it is needed to inform better care decisions. The benefit of MedAllies’ extensive experience operating interoperable nationwide networks adds significant value to our growing community of Carequality Connections.”
“The Carequality-enabled Network for trusted exchange nationwide is a natural expansion of our multimodality Connectivity Services,” said Dr. John Blair, CEO of MedAllies. “As a Carequality Implementer, we’ll work tirelessly to provide service excellence and increase the reach of the Carequality community. We believe the new Carequality-enabled network will further position our clients and partners to effectively address TEFCA, 21st Century Cures Act, and Information Blocking mandates.”
