Smile Digital Health and HealthLX Announce Partnership and Provide Two Innovative FHIR Solutions

Smile and HealthLX collaborate to expedite FHIR-based CMS compliance and enterprise interoperability solutions.


TORONTO, CANADA — May 30, 2023 – Smile Digital Health (Smile), a leading Fast
Healthcare Interoperability Resources (FHIR®) health data fabric and exchange solutions
provider, today announced a partnership with HealthLX™ to bring FHIR solutions to payers and
providers looking to solve CMS compliance mandates and long-term enterprise interoperability

Pairing Smile Digital Health’s HL7® FHIR standard-based Health Data Fabric (HDF) platform
with the Composable Automation™ platform and advanced ingestion engine from HealthLX has
opened the opportunity for two solutions that make meeting payers and providers where they are
in the FHIR journey a reality, for the new partners.

Both solutions provide the foundational infrastructure that allows organizations to mature into a
FHIR-focused enterprise environment at a pace that meets business needs while leveraging past
and future technology investments.

The first, called CMS Mandate Acceleration, offers cost-effective compliance with CMS
interoperability final and proposed rules, including CMS-9115-F, CMS-0057-P and CMS-9123-
P. It is ideal for payers and providers starting their compliance efforts or those looking to replace
legacy solutions or unsuccessful implementations.

The second, FHIR First™ Enterprise, offers the foundation for a FHIR-based strategy to address
operational needs such as care management, administration, claims and an endless number of
other use cases that benefit from repeatable design patterns and complex data orchestration.

“HealthLX has an exceptional platform that will accelerate and simplify the creation of value for
our shared clients. Our combined offering, matching Smile’s health data fabric and HealthLX
workflow automation, is uniquely flexible. Our clients will benefit significantly from the
combined offering, getting services to market quickly and sustainably,” said Duncan
Weatherston, Chief Executive Officer, Smile Digital Health.

“Our product focus is on the automation needs of interoperability for healthcare stakeholders and
is recognized for the composable approach that our solution delivers,” said Will Tesch, Chief
Executive Officer, HealthLX. “Best-of-breed solutions are optimal to address the wide array of
interoperability challenges in the healthcare marketplace. With our strategic alignment with
Smile Digital Health, we believe combined offerings meet a market need desperate for
