In a partnership agreement announced by both companies, the patient documentation exchange interoperability program from Kno2 will be integrated into the BlueStrata electronic health record (EHR) solution developed for the long-term post-acute care (LTPAC) industry.

The initial implementation, which is scheduled to be completed by the end of May 2017, will incorporate Kno2’s Direct messaging and cloud fax capabilities into the EHR and further optimize clinician workflows. Deployment of Kno2’s document query, leveraging the Carequality Interoperability Framework, will follow shortly thereafter, giving clinicians and LTPAC providers a full range of electronic document exchange options to help them efficiently and securely share vital information about their mutual patients, according to a media release.

“Our long-term care (LTC) clients recognize that interoperable electronic document exchange is essential to delivering higher quality care to their residents and strengthening their business partnerships with local hospitals. Kno2’s solution makes it easy to accomplish both goals,” says Tony Coco, president of BlueStrata EHR, in the release.

“We’re proud to join with BlueStrata EHR to take this important next step of enabling patient records to be securely and quickly shared with all providers throughout the care continuum, further enhancing patient outcomes,” adds Jon Elwell, CEO of Kno2.
