OnPage’s HIPAA-compliant platform now integrates with OpenEMR, the most popular open source electronic health records and medical practice management solution. The use cases enabled by this integration include the ability to:
- Continuously monitor a patient’s electronic medical record and trigger an alert to physicians and/or a care team via the OnPage smartphone app if predetermined conditions are met (i.e., a certain level of clinical decline is reached)
- Automatically alert a specialist that a patient has been referred by her PCP
- Alert the PCP when a radiologist interpretation is uploaded into the EMR and include an image file along with the radiologist’s report
How it works
Using OnPage’s API, OnPage makes web service requests to OpenEMR records and when the established criteria are met (i.e., a change in the EMR that is significant enough to trigger an alert), OnPage receives a response along with relevant information and files to include in an alert to the appropriate person and/or care team.
