In Use Case 9, Apixio enables safer care transitions using standard protocols to integrate patient data from remote monitoring devices and electronic health record (EHR) systems to provide timely clinical knowledge to all providers on the patient’s care team. In the Health Story Use Case 13, Apixio uses standard interface protocols to integrate ambulatory care data from EHRs and other data sources. With the use of web-services based data interfaces, Apixio is able to economically and reliably upload very large amounts of clinical information in the form of coded data, textual narrative and scanned documents.
Apixio’s Clinical Knowledge Exchange can mine and analyze the aggregated clinical data and draw actionable knowledge that can be easily exchanged with an ecosystem of provider and patient-facing applications to help the patient receive the highest value care. As an example, the timely analysis of a congestive heart failure patient’s remote monitoring data by CKX triggers a notification to the care manager regarding the patient’s sudden weight gain, prompting the clinicians to compare the data with the patient’s clinical history and possibly take action to prevent an unnecessary hospitalization. The exchange of actionable knowledge between CKX and the applications is done using a combination of proprietary APIs and standard data protocols.
In preparation for the event, Apixio participated in the IHE Connectathon, the Healthcare IT industry’s only large-scale testing event with over 100 participating organizations. Over all, Apixio successfully passed interoperability tests with 25 different organizations, including leading EHR, HIE, PHR, and Imaging vendors. "I'm consistently impressed by the ability of the IHE Profiles to simplify interoperability between systems,” says Anthony LaRocca, Connectivity Architect at Apixio. “What once would take weeks of negotiation and coding can now be achieved in a matter of hours.”
