We can help solve the world’s biggest health problems through our innovative approach to healthcare technology, starting with these key efforts.
Comprehensive Health Solutions for Public Health Crises
Current events have highlighted the urgent need for a solution to the data-sharing and consolidation problem that exists in the United States healthcare system.
Today, healthcare data is siloed in claims data and EHR (Electronic Health Record) systems. Often this data is not readily accessible to another point-of-care or to public health officials who are tracking national epidemics and global pandemics. In addition, the tools used by our public health service are outdated and methods for reporting, collection, and analysis of public health data are inadequate, slow, and unreliable. A central connection point for all healthcare data efforts is the fastest and most efficient way to get a large population treated, while aggregating data for continued clinical research. The solution is to implement a system that connects points-of-care (doctors and pharmacists) with payers and appropriate public health authorities, while documenting results in real time, so that our leaders can make the best, most-informed decisions for U.S. patient populations and beyond.
We plan to utilize our long-standing experience in pharmacy and the greater healthcare and data industries to bring an ultimate global solution to fruition that will help combat global health problems, beginning with the COVID-19 pandemic and Opioid Epidemic in the United States.
EHR Data’s National Facilitator Model
Our primary goal at EHR Data, is to become the National Facilitator of patient data in the United States. This entails establishing a national patient safety network by means of a central data repository that will help healthcare providers and researchers gain access to the information they desperately need to make the best clinical decisions possible.
Opioid Crisis Response
Our innovative approach to addressing the opioid crisis in the United States involves using the National Facilitator to serve as an aggregate database that captures opioid claims across all pharmacies in the nation. By collecting this data, our system calculates patients’ Morphine Milligram Equivalents per day, or MME/day. This number reflects the total daily opioid dosage a patient is ingesting. Our system flags patients who are above a certain threshold, alerting the dispensing pharmacist.
By calculating the total daily dose of opioids, we can identify patients who may benefit from actions such as closer monitoring, tapering opioid use, prescribing Naloxone, or other methods to decrease the risk of overdose.
Healthcare providers working on the front lines of public health crises, such as the coronavirus pandemic, need actionable tools enabling them to access and share timely information to prevent and slow the spread of disease. In conjunction with NCPDP, we have developed a Standards-based Model to support efforts to monitor national disease diagnoses, progression, treatment, and vaccination success. This model serves as a single source of truth for testing results, patient demographics, vaccinations, and surveillance reporting.
Highlights of this model:
- Collect all COVID-19 testing – regardless of payment method, including cash
- Identify COVID-19 patients and patients who are at high-risk for contracting COVID-19
- Notify physicians on patient testing/ treatment needs
- Record and store patient immunizations
- Track treatment success
- Provide ability to bill for D.0 prescription and X12 major medical claims
This greater view into patient health information will be fundamental in layering and analyzing the data needed to inform both national and international strategies concerning the pandemic.
It’s time for patients to be in control of their own healthcare data by having easy access to one digital source for all their health information. In collaboration with the blockchain technology experts, nChain, we are setting out to create a digital application with the underpinnings of blockchain technology. The primary objectives of this solution will be to give patients:
- The ability to control their own data by deciding what they share with chosen providers, researchers, and other healthcare professionals.
- The opportunity to earn rewards as part of loyalty programs, clinical research efforts, and insurance health initiatives.
- The peace of mind, knowing their healthcare records are at their fingertips. This can include, vaccination history, clinical laboratory test reports, X-rays, wellness and disease management program information, and more!
