Unite Us Launches Patent-Pending Integration Between EHRs and its Social Care Coordination Platform
The integration is the first of its kind to create a seamless integration that facilitates sharing of clinical and social information to deliver whole person care and address the social determinants of health.
New York, NY – Unite Us, a leading care coordination platform that enables healthcare and social services to seamlessly work together, officially released its patent-pending electronic health record (EHR) integration. The Unite Us patent-pending integration plugs its care coordination solution into EHRs and complies with standards from Epic, Cerner, and other leading systems.
The first of its kind integration is a critical step forward for communities across the country to seamlessly bridge the gap between medical care and social and behavioral care. Today, there is increasing evidence that shows that upwards of 80% of our health is determined by the Social Determinants of Health “the structural determinants and conditions in which people are born, grow, live, work and age.”
The Unite Us EHR integration not only exchanges data with hospital systems but also integrates the provider’s experience in a seamless manner. The integration uses SMART on FHIR to embed the user interface (UI) of Unite Us’ care coordination platform within the EHR UI, keeping EHR users within their system of record while augmenting the medical data they see with non-medical care history and outcomes.
Unite Us is a member of Epics’ App Orchard developer program, which promotes add-ons that are compatible with Epic’s EHR, and the Unite Us solution is now being offered through that program.
“This integration is transformative, and a great progression towards the solution we continue to solve for communities” says Dan Brillman, Unite Us CEO.“Our vision is to continue creating seamless experiences across communities to ensure that every provider, both healthcare and social services, are connected together and can coordinate in real-time around every patient in need. Now healthcare providers can electronically refer patients securely, and track every interaction and outcome delivered by community partners within the EHR.”
