AUSTIN, TX - MI7, the Austin-based medical intelligence services company announced that it has completed a bidirectional integration with athenahealth (Nasdaq:ATHN).
MI7 utilized the athenaNet API and "Q", MI7’s universal API for healthcare information, to provide digital health application companies with direct access to patient records stored at athenahealth's cloud-based data centers.
"MI7 has made great strides with "Q" by standardizing integration through HL7 and cloud-based APIs to offer a single interface for application companies who want to improve health care for patients at hospitals, clinics, doctor's offices, and even dentist's offices." said Zac Jiwa, CEO of MI7. He added "We are very proud to add athenahealth to our list of supported EHRs so that our clients can leverage clinical data for their customers."
One of the recently-announced features of "Q" is the ability to convert traditional HL7 messages to FHIR-compliant JSON. "Q" allows application developers to connect their back-end systems to operate within the JASON Task Force’s recommended implementation of FHIR. This greatly accelerates each application developer’s implementation time at their client’s locations.
"Q" has integrated with the industry's top EHR systems which allows it to be a turnkey service for application developers. Companies that use "Q" can quickly turn on FHIR interfaces at hospitals around the country. More information about "Q" can be found at http://mi7.io/Q.
We connect Digital Health apps to patient data. MI7's universal API, called "Q" - provides a direct connection to patient information in clinical data systems. "Q" is unique in its simplicity of implementation, affordability, and technology model that magically converts HL7 to JSON, freeing app developers from the need of a data integration engine or highly-trained and expensive HL7 staff. Simply put, MI7 makes it easy to build and deploy health care apps. "Q" - the health data liberation tool of choice for the top digital health apps in the market. Learn more at mi7.io.
