Interoperability and Patient Access Rule

Payers now need to publish health information to patients via third-party consumer apps. Payers can also request member’s health history from former payers who had provided services for their current active members. These are the key CMS Interoperability mandate requirements that payers need to comply within July 1, 2021 and Jan 1, 2022.

HealFHIR – A managed FHIR infrastructure platform from Sagitec Solutions can help payers to be compliant with the mandate by enabling payers with an infrastructure for provisioning and operationalizing the mandate needs with its following platform capabilities:


FHIR Infrastructure that is Secured and Hosted in a HITRUST Certified Cloud

Payers will now be able to use their provider and pharmacy network file extracts and leverage HealFHIR converter and loader tools to make them quickly available as FHIR resources to members and consumer apps.

Payers can share adjudicated claim, encounters with capitated provider, and clinical data with patients via FHIR based standard API by leveraging prebuilt HealFHIR claims mapping template and IG conformance validation tools.

Accelerate the Standardization and Data Movement into FHIR Infrastructure

Sagitec's HealFHIR has prebuilt mapping templates for provider and pharmacy network, claims status, encounter history, and clinical data. This accelerates the mapping exercise to FHIR resources and quickly identify IG conformance gaps. The platform maintains data lineage as the data moves through mapping, validation, and loading phases of the transformation process.


Provision and Manage Access to FHIR Infrastructure

Sagitec's HealFHIR platform comes with the provisioning portal for setting up and managing access to FHIR infrastructure for payers, consumers, and enterprises. This enables payers to define and enforce usage policies for consumers and enterprises while accessing the FHIR infrastructure.


Provide Payer to Payer Data Exchange as a Service

HealFHIR platform takes in a member feed from a payer requesting the health history from the member’s former payer. The solution leverages the payer directory and data aggregation capabilities to fulfill the needs of this data exchange. It aggregates member’s health history data from various payers and provides the requesting payer with an aggregated FHIR bundle. This is a discreate service and does not persist any member data. The managed service will constantly work on provisioning additional payers in its payer directory.

Resources for Payers

The following are the key focus areas and corresponding enabling resources that payers should be looking for in a vendor solution.



Cloud Deployment Options

Payers should clearly understand each approach's benefits and drawbacks to help them decide which solution is best for them.

A trial HealFHIR environment is available for payers to quickly upload their provider and pharmacy directory and make them available via FHIR API. The trial environment uses predefined Excel templates to transform and load data into the secured FHIR infrastructure. The HealFHIR dashboard will provide a summarized view of available datasets within the payers' dedicated FHIR infrastructure.
