Clarity Connect's queuing middleware ensures that data transmits successfully to the correct endpoints. Along the way, it automatically generates the notifications, alerts and performance-tracking indicators. By persistently monitoring both the transmission and receipt of data, Clarity Connect makes reliable communication a sure thing.
With the large number of providers that could potentially have access to a single patient’s records, strict security measures are essential to prevent data breaches within EHR systems. Guarding data with multiple forms of protection throughout the transfer process ensures HIPAA compliance and safeguards patients against the potentially serious consequences of having private health information stolen.
Patient data becomes more vulnerable whenever it’s in transit. Clarity Connect relies on SSL encryption as one layer of security to minimize the risk of interception. EHR platforms with IP blocking provide another layer by shielding data from IP addresses known to belong to unauthorized or malicious third parties. By controlling how individual tools and components are permitted to access specific IP addresses, Clarity effectively closes back doors that might otherwise facilitate unauthorized data acquisition or brute-force attacks.
Utilizing HL7v2 with Epic API
Health Level 7 (HL7) is defined as “a set of international standards for transfer of clinical and administrative data between software applications used by various healthcare providers.” HL7 ensures that EHR systems operate smoothly across all platforms and institutions by facilitating the accurate transfer of information. Clarity Connect uses version 2 of HL7 and links with Epic EHR’s API to support interoperability and maintain HIPAA compliance.
By allowing for integration of a wide range of applications, it’s possible to create an interconnected network that can handle the changing demands of the healthcare industry. As technology advances and options such as e-prescriptions, online refilling and the use of mobile devices in clinical settings become commonplace, this level of flexibility will be necessary to ensure a high quality of care for all patients.
The Right Platform
Clarity provides technology that already include inputs related to the medical industry, a distinction that sets it apart from other platforms. This minimizes the time it takes to set up and implement an Epic EHR integration, providing fast access and reliable functionality without the need for lengthy customization.
