BURLINGTON, Vt. — PureWellness has released continuity of care documents supported by HL7 standards for health information exchange between its online wellness system and CCD-supported electronic health records, the company said.
The new integration allows members and health coaches to synchronize and share lifestyle, behavior and risk information with care providers and their associated data networks. Most EHR systems and the Certification Commission for Health Information Technology have adopted CCD as the standard.
"Members, patients and providers can now share key health and prevention data with other pertinent health information systems," PureWellness president Ken Kaufman said. "This capability advances the coordination of patient-centered care, which plays an important role in controlling healthcare costs and improving health and wellness strategies."
