EHR (Electronic Health Record) integration refers to the process of connecting and combining different EHR systems within a healthcare organization or between multiple healthcare organizations to share patient information. The integration of EHR systems can improve the accuracy, efficiency, and availability of patient information and reduce the risk of medical errors. It can also allow healthcare providers to access a complete and up-to-date patient record, including medical history, test results, and medication information, regardless of where the patient has received care. EHR integration can be achieved through the use of standardized protocols, such as HL7, and APIs (Application Programming Interfaces) that allow different systems to communicate with each other. The integration of EHR systems can help to improve patient outcomes and provide a more coordinated and efficient healthcare experience.
Vim is not an EHR or EHR Integrator as traditionally understood. Instead, Vim’s EHR integration technology, Vim Connect, sets us apart from traditional EHRs and EHR integrators as we can scale across EHRs and are not EHR dependent. We make it easy for providers to connect – often going live in a matter of days – and we drive high provider engagement through our powerful workflow connections.
