ELKRIDGE, MD.– (BUSINESS WIRE) – Onyx Technology, LLC, a NewWave company, is pleased to announce the formation of a strategic partnership with CareJourney, a national leader in healthcare data analytics. Onyx and CareJourney will combine forces to provide healthcare payers and providers the most powerful products and services on the market today to lead in the emergent era of healthcare data interoperability.
“Both NewWave’s CEO Patrick Munis and [CareJourney President] Aneesh Chopra have long shared a vision of putting interoperable health data in the service of transforming America’s healthcare system,” says Susheel Ladwa, Onyx Technology’s CEO. “We are excited to be part of their impressive team.”
Central to the value of the partnership will be Onyx’s FHIR-based, cloud-native SAFHIR platform. Built in collaboration Microsoft, SAFHIR will provide out-of-the box health data interoperability for America’s health payers and providers. The platform enables secure connections between payers, providers and patients and is built on the technology Onyx’s parent company NewWave developed in building the Blue Button 2.0 API for the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) which provide secure, FHIR-based data sharing to over 50 million beneficiaries.
