Who We Serve
Technology systems shouldn’t get in the way of your top priority—providing quality care. Clinicians often require instant access to an historical patient chart at point of care and don’t have the luxury of time to wait for the HIM team to pull it. Using HealthData Archiver®, a long-term record storage platform, providers can access complete patient medical history—within the context of the go-forward EMR—at the touch of a button. The Single Sign-On EMR integration allows medical staff to make informed decisions based on the complete clinical narrative.
While real time access to complete patient medical records is critical, so too is ease of use. Whether you are a physician, nurse, or CMIO, Harmony Healthcare IT’s HealthData Archiver® platform streamlines patient record analysis by presenting summarized, yet holistic, views of relevant patient history in an intuitive, easy to use interface. Thoughtful features such as Single Sign-On keep the clinician and patient at the forefront.
“Data conversions are a pain in the neck. They’re costly, take a lot of time and are tedious… It makes perfect sense to archive that information. You still have it, it’s readily accessible and you can move on to your new EHR without worrying about all those conversions.”
A simple yet extremely helpful capability, Single Sign On eliminates the need for manual logons into archived, historical medical records by seamlessly connecting clinicians from an active EHR, in-context, to the patient’s historical medical record. This feature saves valuable time and is typically available for most major EMR brands (i.e., Epic, Cerner, Allscripts, Athena) via standards such as Oauth/OpenID, Advanced Encryption Standard (AES), Security Assertion Markup Language (SAML 2.0) and others.
This HealthData Archiver® feature aggregates a single patient’s encounter data across multiple legacy data sources to a single screen. This view provides added convenience and access to a comprehensive clinical narrative (i.e., lab results, flow sheets, growth charts or other clinical data) to better inform treatment decisions at the point of care.
When an archive stores data discretely, it opens up to the time-saving feature of filtering and sorting. Not only can data like medications or lab values be readily discovered and reviewed, but they can also be sorted in ascending, descending, alpha or numeric order.
With the attachment of any ODBC tool to HealthData Archiver®, custom reports may be generated so that data mining and analytics may be performed. Legacy data may be exported from HealthData Archiver® and shared to population health management applications, data warehouses, APIs, dashboard/visualization tools (i.e., Qlik, Tableau, Microsoft Power BI, SAP Business Objects, SYTRUE, etc.), HIEs, research teams, and more.
With its open and scalable architecture, HealthData Archiver® is built to accommodate and store data from any legacy system, in any format. Data that is discrete in the source system will be archived as discrete data while unstructured data will be archived as unstructured. Typical file formats in which discrete data is delivered are CDA, CCDA, CCD, CCR, CSV, XML, HL7, Flat File or FHIR. The accommodation of data into HealthData Archiver® serves as an alternative to the costly and complex “traditional data conversion” from a source system to a destination system that requires data to be transformed to fit (not always so ideally) into the destination database structure.
A legacy data solution that fits into an efficient clinical workflow for physicians and medical scribes.
