Imagine a seamless, secure connection between your organization and patients. NewWave (Onyx’s parent company) built this capability for the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), and Onyx has harnessed lessons learned from this implementation to build SAFHIR as a high performance, scalable cloud platform designed to support a growing portfolio of FHIR-based solutions for payers and providers.
As the healthcare system transitions to value-based care, providers and payers need new tools to share and analyze data, improve population health and support improved clinical outcomes – all while cutting costs and administrative burdens. SAFHIR makes this possible.
Much More Control Over Data Sharing
FHIR provides you with a great deal of control over what information you share with your customers, and SAFHIR gives you flexible options for delivering the information. SAFHIR allows you to ingest information from any data source, pull it into a FHIR server, and then make the information available securely through an API for use in other applications and technologies.
This technical ability allows you to share data easily through customer portals, mobile applications, and any other format you wish to use to collaborate with your customers.
Based on the CMS Blue Button 2.0 API
SAFHIR leverages NewWave’s work on the CMS Blue Button 2.0 application protocol interface (API). NewWave built the Blue Button 2.0 API to be a developer-friendly, standards-based API that puts beneficiaries in control of how they share their claims information.
SAFHIR uses this underlying technology to help providers and payers use their data to deliver better service to their customers. You can use the data to share information with your patients/beneficiaries about their health, details about their insurance coverage, drug prescriptions, treatments and costs. Beneficiaries also have full control over how their data can be used and by whom, with identity and authorization controlled.
