Partnership to Accelerate Implementation of Interoperability Technology & Processes
GRAFTON, WI (July 1, 2020) – HealthLX announced today that it has formed a systems integrator partnership with TallulahBlue Health to help healthcare payers comply with the CMS Interoperability and Patient Access Final Rule. Most health plans in the United States must enable member access to their records through an API by July 1, 2021 or risk enforcement actions.
“We are very excited to partner with TallulahBlue Health at this critical moment for the healthcare industry,” said Will Tesch, CEO of HealthLX. “Our mission at HealthLX has always been to radically improve healthcare interoperability in the U.S., and with the Patient Access Final Rule in place, we’re at a tipping point. TallulahBlue is one of the most highly recognized implementers of HealthEdge technologies. Together, we’re prepared to accelerate the interoperability payers need for compliance on a much larger scale.”
“Member record exchange has been long overdue in this industry, and it’s going to benefit every stakeholder, from patients to payers,” said Jason Proulx, President & CEO, TallulahBlue Health. “We share HealthLX’s passion for healthcare. Through this partnership, we’re able to deliver a timely, turnkey solution that will be more robust and far less expensive than if health plans develop a custom solution on their own. This ready-to-implement solution enables health plans to focus their time and resources in the right place.”
HealthLX is a recognized leader in solving clinical data integration challenges with its leading-edge technology. As one of the founding members of the Da Vinci Project, HealthLX is involved in writing the workflows to satisfy interoperability mandates. TallulahBlue works with health plans on strategy and seamless execution around people, process and architecture technology to maturate the organization. As the bridge between leadership and IT, it builds internal capacity for clients to grow and sustain a better, faster, cost-effective healthcare ecosystem.
“HealthLX and TallulahBlue are very much aligned in our core values and approach to client solutions,” said Tesch. “By bringing our complementary capabilities together, we’re creating a solid, accessible solution for the CMS Patient Access mandate for health plans nationwide.”
HealthLX™ (Healthcare Language Exchange) gives payers and providers an interoperability engine designed specifically for healthcare data exchange, including the CMS Interoperability and Patient Access Final Rule. The HealthLX platform supports FHIR natively, and also supports an array of older healthcare data standards (HL7 v2, EDI, CDA). HealthLX simplifies the effort and cost of new solution integration by creating modern API endpoints on legacy systems, all while providing highly configurable security and enhanced levels of transaction monitoring. As a founding member of Health Level Seven International's (HL7) Da Vinci Project, HealthLX has been working with and supporting the development of use cases and the FHIR standard itself, to comply with the Cures Act mandates.
