The Intelligent Roadmap to Interoperability

Five considerations for payers when choosing an interoperability solution


The 21st Century Cures Act places interoperability front and center for payers. Identifying a vendor that can be your strategic partner is a key consideration because interoperability is nuanced. Furthermore, while achieving interoperability to meet mandates is important, finding your ideal strategic partner will help unlock the full potential of your interoperability investment and unearth new business opportunities.

Read this guide to learn the five main considerations payers need to make when choosing an interoperability solution.

TDRAAP Accreditation

HealthUnity was one of the first platforms to successfully complete the Trusted Dynamic Registration & Authentication Accreditation Program (TDRAAP). TDRAAP provides the much-needed governance infrastructure for supporting scalable interoperability, with a specific focus on the technical standards enabling trust and transparency for both organizational and individual access to data. This comprehensive accreditation supports the formation of a trusted ecosystem for healthcare applications and endpoints.

Drummond Certification

HealthUnity also successfully completed Drummond certification. Drummond Group’s “Payer and Patient Access Fast Healthcare Interoperability Resource (FHIR®) Application Programming Interface (API)” certification is powered by Touchstone and is the only independent testing and certification program certifying interoperability and compliance using the standards established by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid (CMS) Interoperability and Patient Access Final Rule. Drummond’s certification confirms HealthUnity is fully compliant with the HL7 U.S. Drug Formulary FHIR® Implementation Guide referenced in the Patient Access API requirements of the Final Rule, CMS-9115-F.

ZeOmega is the first and only population health management (PHM) organization to have successfully passed all three comprehensive data security and interoperability testing programs, known as the “Security and Interoperability Trifecta.” By passing all three testing programs, ZeOmega and its interoperability platform, HealthUnity, are certified as meeting and exceeding the highest industry-defined requirements for data exchange and information security.
