As an industry, we have a responsibility to harness the power of data and technology to improve outcomes, reduce inefficiencies, and make healthcare more accessible and effective for everyone.
At the core of this commitment lies the consumer’s longitudinal health record – a treasure trove of critical information. From everyday exchanges to life-saving procedures, every healthcare interaction generates invaluable data that, when shared effectively, can provide a holistic view of a consumer’s health history. The value of this data, however, is realized only when it is made securely accessible to all relevant stakeholders, including healthcare providers, patients, and caregivers.
We have taken an important step in this direction by connecting our data with athenahealth, a leading provider of network-enabled services and mobile apps for over 140K clinicians. This connection empowers b.well users to utilize their patient’s right of access to connect and obtain their vital health information from the athenahealth network of 16K provider groups, bringing a full longitudinal health record to the forefront of b.well user healthcare journeys. This initiative reduces the instances of duplicate tests and procedures, thereby increasing efficiency and reducing unnecessary costs for healthcare organizations.
Bridging the Gap in Healthcare Connectivity
The healthcare industry thrives on effective data sharing and seamless communication between providers and patients. According to CVS Health research, 83% of consumers say it is important for their primary care provider to be aware of other physicians they are seeing and their diagnoses and recommendations. But trust is paramount in healthcare, and we understand that data sharing must be handled with the utmost care and responsibility. We are committed to building and maintaining consumer trust by ensuring that data privacy and security are never compromised. Every data exchange facilitated by our platform adheres to the highest standards of data protection and privacy norms. Moreover, our data-sharing model empowers consumers by giving them control over their data, allowing them to decide who can access their information and how it can be used.
Our ability to seamlessly connect with the athenahealth network through the latest FHIR standards is just one step in our commitment to driving innovation and improving healthcare experiences. It’s an example of how data sharing, when done right, can significantly enhance the way healthcare is delivered and experienced. But we don’t intend to stop here.
Empowering Consumers with Choice and Accessibility
At b.well Connected Health, we firmly believe in empowering healthcare consumers with choice and accessibility. Through our data connection to the athenahealth network, b.well is continuing to expand its network of connections, working towards interoperability that allows consumers the freedom to choose the right healthcare professional for their needs.
