Redox Awarded Patent for its Electronic Medical Record Integration Technology

MADISON, Wisc., Aug. 29, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Redox, healthcare's leading integration platform, announced it has been granted U.S. Patent No. 9,996,664 by the United States Patent and Trademark Office for its systems and methods for translating messages between healthcare delivery organizations and technology vendors. Leveraging a series of reusable configuration records, Redox standardizes how medical record content is represented and enables true interoperability between entities that exchange data. The Redox Platform streamlines data exchange between members of the Redox Network.

"Electronic medical records are notorious for inconsistencies in data format and representation. This variation has made it difficult for healthcare delivery organizations to exchange information with affiliates and technology vendors," said James Lloyd, co-founder and chief technology officer at Redox. "The Redox Platform establishes reusable infrastructure to scale healthcare data exchange across many partners. This approach fundamentally changes the way healthcare organizations exchange data. We believe the methodology covered by this patent is the key to solving healthcare's biggest interoperability challenges."

How It Works

Redox dramatically simplifies the way organizations exchange healthcare data by eradicating the issue of inconsistent data formats. Messages may be transmitted and/or received in any message format or structure associated with the healthcare entity. A configuration is then applied to normalize the medical record content ensuring consistency regardless of the source of the information. A second configuration structures the data for the receiving system.

This design allows healthcare delivery organizations to continue using already installed software. Application developers code once to the Redox API and scale anywhere, independent of underlying technology or configurations.

"Traditional healthcare integration methods create point-to-point connections between two organizations. These solutions are slow to implement, costly to maintain, and provide no benefit to the broader healthcare ecosystem," added Lloyd. "The Redox Platform supports healthcare delivery organizations of all sizes and powers the integration strategies of leading care coordination, chronic care management, durable medical equipment, patient engagement, revenue optimization, and telemedicine providers. Every organization powered by Redox is a member of the same interoperable network."
