WHITE PAPER

 

Unlock Medicare Data using Blue Button 2.0 for Seamless Patient Intake 

Interoperable healthcare is the future

Most healthcare practices collect paper-based patient information and manually enter it into an Electronic Medical Record (EMR), making the process error-prone and slow, hampering the patient experience.

There are now IT-driven solutions that utilize Blue Button 2.0 APIs, Fast Healthcare Interoperability Resources (FHIR) and OAuth 2.0 protocols to automate the patient intake process. Automation can help healthcare services:

  • Streamline patient intake process and provide better care
  • Increase productivity, efficiency, savings
  • Make interoperable healthcare a reality


Leveraging a combination of Blue Button APIs, FHIR specifications and OAuth-based security, not only can patient intake be automated but healthcare IT systems can also accept patient resources (FHIR) from third party systems like EMRs.

Such a framework can be integrated with AI-driven chatbots and patient portals to improve patient experience through accurate healthcare information exchange between various stakeholders.
