Redox To Power EHR Integration In Microsoft Teams Through FHIR

MADISON, WIS.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--

Redox today announced that it is integrating with Microsoft Teams to enable secure, bidirectional data exchange with electronic health record (EHR) software at provider organizations using the FHIR (Fast Healthcare Interoperability Resources) standard. As a result, clinicians and caregivers can easily communicate patient data on the Microsoft Teams platform and record information at the EHR level. Redox streamlines the adoption of Microsoft Teams by provider organizations with minimal IT resources.

How it Works

Redox makes it possible for Microsoft Teams to exchange data with FHIR by allowing organizations that use Teams to configure and receive data in a single, consistent FHIR format. Where FHIR is not currently available or in use, Redox connects to existing HL7v2 interfaces or EHR vendor APIs and transforms that data into a FHIR messaging format. All data sent back into an EHR is consumed by Teams in FHIR standards and then translated into the necessary format depending on what the provider’s current EHR is capable of accepting. This collaboration helps play a key role in ensuring patient data is available, comprehensive and easily exchanged among clinician teams.

“The advent of Microsoft Teams illustrates the tremendous change in how people and teams in all industries get work done, and healthcare is no exception,” said Niko Skievaski, co-founder and president, Redox. “Yet, most provider organizations are running a very lean IT team and are not well equipped to rapidly implement new technologies. Redox simplifies integration to a single connection and data format. An integration powered by Redox represents reusable infrastructure already in place at 450 healthcare organizations.”

Mike Ammerlaan, director, Microsoft Office 365 Ecosystem, Microsoft Corp. added, “Working with leading healthcare interoperability suppliers, such as Redox, we are bringing Microsoft’s capabilities to healthcare providers as they adopt the cloud. Powered by Redox, providers can view electronic healthcare data in Microsoft Teams. This enables clinicians to facilitate communication about patient care in real-time within Teams' secure platform and to help improve care outcomes.”
