openAirWare Launches New Software to Improve Michigan Health Information Exchange
Automated, Real-Time, Health Plan Communication Claims Conversions
LANSING, Mich., Oct. 15, 2018 ― Michigan Health Information Network Shared Services (MiHIN) has adopted openAirWare software that enables MiHIN health plan partners to securely and easily communicate with one another throughout Michigan.
The software offers a newly designed real-time conversion from any Consolidated Clinical Document Architecture (C-CDA) to standards accepted by the American National Standards Institute for electronic data exchange. This enables health plans to obtain up-to-date claim status and related responses, including All Payer Supplemental Health Care Claims.
The software also allows for core information from the C-CDA to be studied in conjunction with the Healthcare Effectiveness Data and Information Set (HEDIS). HEDIS is a tool used by health plans to measure performance on important dimensions of care and service measures to better analyze data and be prepared for electronic clinical quality measure reporting.
“The national electronic data interchange standards enable highly secure and reliable communication between our health plan partners” said Marty Woodruff, MiHIN associate executive director. “We selected openAirWare because of its high level of excellence and unparalleled expertise in interoperability. Together, we continue to improve communication for our partners and demonstrate proven interoperability for all of healthcare.”
“We are pleased to offer this solution to MiHIN and their partners,” said Mark Brown, openAirWare CEO. “This functionality, similar to what we offer commercially, further strengthens interoperability between organizations.” As part of our Alchemy libraries, we deliver multiple, real-time, all-inclusive interface data converters.
“Organizations under Meaningful Use must share and analyze clinical data whenever they need to report clinical quality measures in a standard and structured format for interoperability between systems, including HEDIS and others,” he added. “Our solution applies consummate know-how in standards, connectivity and interoperability to give organizations the data they need, in the right format, whenever they need it.”
