Trainer Rx announces new advancements to its telerehabilitation platform: an application programming interface (API) tool kit and conformance to the Fast Health Interoperability Resource (FHIR) framework.
Conformance to FHIR means that providers and enterprise health systems can easily access Trainer Rx’s patient outcome data and integrate it into electronic health records, enhancing the clinical value of the data, according to a media release from Trainer Rx.
The API offering includes support for single sign-on, shared application contexts for patients and providers, and data management capabilities for integrated systems and platforms.
“We’re excited to improve upon our interoperability with health systems in order to support customers and the healthcare community at large,” says Chris Hughes, chief technology officer of Walnut Creek, Calif-headquartered Trainer Rx, in the release. “Offering an API toolkit and conforming to FHIR are important to our focus of optimizing care for the patient and providing greater insights for the clinician.”
FHIR is widely used in health IT organizations because it addresses the HL7 standard. In addition, it leverages web technology to access and exchange data across electronic systems.
The ability to collect and integrate data to gain insight into a patient’s recovery, progress and engagement is critical to organizations striving to become “smart” health systems, according to Hughes.
“Trainer Rx’s ability to offer developers API tools and conform with FHIR brings value to enterprise customers,” Hughes notes. “An open and interoperable IT infrastructure can stimulate innovation while creating greater IT efficiency, stability, scalability and security.”
