Committed to interoperability and the cloud
The System C & Graphnet Care Alliance are adopting the FHIR interfacing standard to make easier the sharing of health and care information and to stimulate digital innovation. The companies are launching cloud-based platforms which offer customers and authorised third parties a package of open APIs using FHIR-based standards. The APIs will be available in a rolling programme right across all Care Alliance products – including shared care records, child health, EPR, and social care solutions.
First to be launched is Graphnet’s open interoperability platform, offering FHIR APIs to the CareCentric shared record software. This will be followed by social care, child health, vitals, clinical collaboration, alerts, connectivity for third-party patient facing apps, and a range of API packages for the Care Alliance’s PAS, EPR and clinical systems. For social care, Liquidlogic is generating the nine FHIR messages necessary for hospital assessments, discharges and withdrawal notices.
We are progressively moving all our software to the cloud as we believe there are a number of benefits to our customers, including:
- Reduced capital investment requirements (no hardware to procure and commission and no hardware refreshes to consider)
- Revenue models linked to actual daily infrastructure usage - you pay for what you use as infrastructure is scaled up or down according to need
- Performance is maintained as load and functionality increases
- Small-scale deployments that would be cost prohibitive locally are viable in the cloud. This liberates customers and makes deployments viable for small-scale users such as nursing homes
- Cloud facilitates the sharing of data via APIs, encouraging innovative new apps and new uses
