Interoperability

 

Interoperability Made Easy



Aprima gives providers the EHR interoperability tools they need to connect with patient data in the way that works best for them, and, just as importantly, those with whom they need to connect. Whether that is with a point to point interface, integration with a Health Information Exchange (HIE), direct messaging, or with participation in our national network partners' programs such as Surescripts and CommonWell.

Aprima makes interoperability simple for doctors by making patient data available quickly and in real time. Whether sending or receiving, Aprima has you covered.

What is Interoperability?

Interoperability allows for the transfer of data between EHR systems and health care stakeholders. An interoperable environment improves the delivery of health care by making the right data available at the right time to the right people1.

Why should my practice be Interoperable?

EHR interoperability is critical not only for streamlining practice workflows but for participation in the Advancing Care Information portion of MACRA/MIPS. Your practice’s Medicare base rate is dependent on your ability to send and receive information with your peers. Much like the early days of Meaningful Use, your practice can actually earn a positive adjustment from CMS with successful participation in the program. However, if you don’t participate, you will be penalized!

What Are the Benefits of Being Interoperable?

  • Earn a positive adjustment (i.e. make more money) while avoiding negative adjustments (i.e. have money taken away) to your Medicare reimbursements as part of MACRA/MIPS
  • Boost practice and provider efficiency.  Interoperability saves time, especially physician time!
  • Patients are happier when they don’t have to wait for providers to get information and aren’t subjected to redundant testing and fees
