PatientShare Exchange

PatientShare Exchange provides a simple, secure, private, and transparent way for patients and clinicians to exchange health data.

Is PatientShare Exchange Right for My Organization?

Due to its robust and flexible feature set, PatientShare Exchange can solve interoperability problems for many different healthcare organizations.

For Healthcare Teams Who Want to Lead the Way on Patient-mediated Exchange

PatientShare Exchange is powered by a UMA/HEART framework that provides consent-driven FHIR data exchange. This system enables organizations at the forefront of healthcare innovation to offer a patient-mediated data exchange model. PatientShare is designed to give these leading healthcare teams the tools to inform and empower their patients and support a new model of care.

For Organizations Looking to Implement a Patient-centric Data Hub 

PatientShare Exchange enables organizations tied to old, outdated patient portal software to offer a patient-centric data hub model. Thanks to its use of the versatile FHIR API, PatientShare offers these healthcare entities a way to securely share patient data with clinicians, patients, or any combination of those parties at a granular yet meaningful level.

For Healthcare Organizations who Need a Turnkey Solution

The ONC FHIR mandate will soon be in effect. You don't need to wait for your legacy EHR vendor to develop a compliant solution. PatientShare offers organizations with uncertain plans an easy way to meet the mandate and improve the quality of care they provide at the same time.

PatientShare Exchange Features

A PatientShare Exchange system consists of a FHIR API, Consent System, Authorization Server, and an intuitive front-end interface that enables users to get data across the continuum of care. PatientShare can be configured to support multiple use cases. In addition, it can connect to any data repository, including an HIE.

  • Patients can share their clinical data securely at a granular level with users they choose
  • Patients can revoke access at any time
  • Supports transparency:  Patients can see not only what consents they have created but also who has accessed what part of their record and when
  • Rich patient and provider-facing UX
  • Easy-to-use web-based clients
  • External standards-based clients are also supported
  • Enterprise FHIR server and API
  • Configurations can support both organizational policy exchange and patient-directed exchange
  • EMR launch and CDS hook support
  • Option to integrate with high-level federated authentication systems

PatientShare Offers Secure, Granular, and Meaningful Data Exchange

When health systems enable patients to access and share their own health data, they remove delays in care, foster better clinical decisions, and improve coordination of services.

PatientShare Exchange takes the health data that matters to clinicians and patients and makes it securely available in a meaningful way for authorized users, including family members, caregivers, and social services. These healthcare stakeholders get the information they need through a clear, easy-to-use interface.
Using PatientShare Exchange, a patient's record can travel with them to each clinician they visit, accumulating data. Current, accurate data is immediately available at each facility to better inform care. Patients can control access to their growing health records in ways that best serve their care interests.

PatientShare Exchange supports transparency features:  The patient has access to each of the consent records created and their current status. Existing consents can be updated or revoked at any time. The patient can also view which authorized users have accessed what part of their record and when.

The Future is FHIR

PatientShare provides next-generation interoperability using the FHIR API. As a result, it can improve how your organization supports healthcare and enables patient-mediated exchange.

Data pulled using the FHIR API in PatientShare summarizes meaningful health information, and can show trends over time. In addition, because PatientShare is built on FHIR, it is vendor-neutral and can work with any FHIR R4 API. It can address gaps in data access, a common concern during transitions of care.

How PatientShare ExchangeWorks

PatientShare Exchange provides the option of adding another level of interoperability called Patient-Mediated Exchange. This approach uses the HEART standard, a set of profiles to enhance the underlying FHIR, OAuth, OpenID Connect, and UMA (User-Managed Access) standards. This approach puts the patient, or their proxy, in control of their health data while providing extra levels of security, privacy, and transparency.

How Consent-driven Sharing Patient-Mediated Exchange Works

The patient creates an electronic consent, which specifies what they wish to share at a granular level. This consent also details with whom they wish to share and for how long. The ‘whom’ refers to a ‘requesting party’ and that could be a payer, clinician, or another party.

That requesting party authenticates themselves and then receives immediate access to data shared with them through the PatientShare interface. They can drill down into complete detail within the shared data set. PatientShare also summarizes users' consents and offers an easy system for the patient to manage them. Built-in transparency lets the patient see who has accessed their data and when.
