With the mandate from CMS to implement secure standards-based Patient Access APIs that allow members to access their health information using HL7 FHIR 4.0.1. the need for payers to find compliant solutions became a major priority. Solutions like TIBCO’s application integration offering are optimized to help payers transform existing clinical and claims data for storage using FHIR (Fast Healthcare Interoperability Resources) on a data platform like Smile CDR. Additionally, TIBCO's API management offering provides API capabilities to control access to the data stored in the CDR, while TIBCO's visual analytics offering delivers reporting capabilities against the FHIR data that round out the solution.
The Smile CDR FHIR data platform, supports all FHIR versions and resources and is perfectly suited to meet the CMS interoperability mandate. Leveraging TIBCO’s integration, API management, and visual analytics capabilities, the combined solution provides significant value to payer organizations striving to meet the ONC mandated deadline, including:
- Accelerated implementation and reduced time-to-market
- A strategic investment to meet current and future CMS requirements, while establishing an interoperability capacity for future innovation
- Mitigated risk due to enhanced security and privacy features, ensuring HIPAA compliance
- Enterprise-grade performance and operational features with commercial support
