Akana Announces Availability of the New Akana Healthcare Solution

Akana announced the availability of the new Akana Healthcare Solution. The API-driven solution helps healthcare organizations accelerate their transition to being secure, digitally interoperable businesses. It leverages the Health Level Seven International Fast Healthcare Interoperability Resources (HL7 FHIR) standard to enable broader business use of medical data. Akana developed the Healthcare Solution in response to healthcare businesses that want to increase electronic, multi-device access to health records while reducing operating costs and complying with government regulations. In order to be successful in leveraging EHR data for higher level processing and improved patient outcomes, the data locked within the EHR and other proprietary data sources must be made available for use in a secure and controlled manner. The Akana solution solves this problem by opening up secure access to data in EHRs. Akana’s Healthcare Solution combines the power of the Akana API Management platform with HL7 FHIR and preconfigured healthcare assets to provide an end-to-end solution for API-enabled healthcare. This solution approach addresses a basic industry need. Multiple healthcare organizations must typically work together for a single patient’s healthcare outcome. The communication channels between the hospitals, specialists, labs and others serving the patient must be open and able to securely transfer EHR data. Using APIs reduces the time and cost of partner integration as well as improve patient outcomes with more readily available data. For healthcare partners that want to take advantage of APIs for this kind of data sharing, Akana’s Healthcare Solution manages the required API-related onboarding and communications. It allows for controlled, managed and secure access to the APIs carrying sensitive patient information between partners. The Akana solution helps organization more easily secure and manage APIs that connect devices to EHRs in healthcare’s Internet of Things (IoT). Healthcare has long embraced the IoT concept. The transfer of data from healthcare devices into a patient’s EHR is a factor in that patient’s health outcome. It will affect the success of the healthcare provider and that of the device provider. The APIs delivering this data must be easily provisioned and integrated, secured, scalable, and auditable. Akana’s Healthcare Solution focuses on the complete lifecycle of the API, starting with design and continuing through run and consumption. It offers DevOps and continuing delivery capabilities with audits and accountability. The Akana Healthcare Solution highlights include: HL7 FHIR resources schema management; HL7 FHIR resource profile validation and auto-provisioning; HL7 FHIR server deployment and datasource mapping; Centralized healthcare security policy management; Micro-orchestration for healthcare document and message build out; Policy-based data collection for regulatory and security compliance; Healthcare partner onboarding and provisioning; and Enterprise internal and external API community management.
