Healthfirst and MediSys Launch Hyphen to Improve Patient Care
Wednesday, October 12, 2022
Healthfirst and The MediSys Health Network have announced their partnership with Hyphen, a cloud-based platform, to enhance the connectivity of longitudinal data in healthcare. By utilizing Fast Healthcare Interoperability Resource (FHIR) standards, Hyphen enables the seamless integration of member data into provider and hospital electronic health record (EHR) systems. This integration facilitates real-time identification of care gaps, allowing clinicians to address patient needs more effectively. The collaboration aims to create a connected care experience and provide greater insight into patients' health needs, thereby contributing to a more equitable health system. Hyphen's solution eliminates the reliance on spreadsheets by delivering actionable data directly into the workflows of EHRs and other systems, streamlining healthcare providers' operations. It also offers applications for community-based social services providers, allowing for the linkage of medical and community data to provide a comprehensive view of individuals' health and social needs. The ultimate goal of Hyphen is to modernize interoperability, ensuring that providers have access to the right information at the right time to address patients' needs accurately. This partnership will play a vital role in supporting value-based care and improving healthcare delivery for Medicare and Medicaid beneficiaries, as well as other patient populations impacted by health inequities. Hyphen, a subsidiary of HF Management Services LLC and an affiliate of Healthfirst, also provides the necessary technology infrastructure for community organizations to receive reimbursement for their support under state waiver and demonstration programs.
