KANSAS CITY, Mo. – DataFile Technologies is excited to announce the expansion of their aggregated data network of over 271% in in the first quarter of 2019. The significant increase in healthcare provider end points available in their Velocity Exchange means more health data requests can be fulfilled and at a greater speed of delivery for entities like health insurance payers, researchers, life and disability insurance, attorneys and most importantly to patients themselves.
Velocity, the DataFile interoperability suite, is a leading health data platform comprised of rich, actionable patient charts from thousands of providers and healthcare systems. The Velocity Core network of provider end points is constantly growing, adding greater benefits and efficiencies to those needing health data to make clinical and financial decisions.
“Our rapidly growing network of data sources and provider end points provides patients and requestors with proper authorization and a seamless, secure health data exchange,” said Shawn Whitcomb, Chief Operating & Technology Officer for DataFile. “We recognize the importance of quality, availability and speed are essential to the requestor. This is why we built the Velocity Exchange services to provide quick data retrieval from both traditional and digital retrieval methods while ensuring patient authorization and HIPAA compliance.”
Historically, data requestors including patients have had limited options for gaining access to health data and patient charts, often waiting for multiple weeks or longer on the heavily-burdened healthcare system to receive, process, harvest and distribute medical records. DataFile was an early advocate of interoperability as a mechanism for offloading the clerical functions of medical records in all use cases. Mounting evidence of healthcare burnout only serves to underscore the need for automation and workflows that relieve the healthcare staff of the administrative work so they can focus on the patient care.
As the Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology (ONC) pushes for greater interoperability and more streamlined data exchange between providers and requestors such as patients, there are many other use cases that can benefit from the increase in the availability of the Velocity aggregated data network to deliver faster access to the information in the electronic health record. DataFile is committed to building the interoperability bridge between the source of the data and the requestor on behalf of the patient.
