Legislative, market, and technology trends have created a digital transformation imperative in healthcare. Catalyst Accelerator for Healthcare includes pre-built APIs and a prescriptive architecture to help health IT teams jumpstart the development of common healthcare applications, and provides a foundation for 3x faster project delivery.
In addition to providing pre-built APIs, Catalyst Accelerator for Healthcare includes a model for API-led connectivity in healthcare that promotes asset reuse and self-service. In the architecture that follows, we’ve abstracted data from complex EHR systems like Epic into a canonical model that is represented via a set of FHIR REST APIs. Then, we built experience APIs that provide better experiences for both patients and clinicians.
System APIs abstract away the complexity of EHRs and other core systems of record from the data’s end user, while providing downstream insulation from any interface changes or rationalization of those systems.
Process APIs decouple business processes that interact with and shape data from the source systems where the data originated. For example, the “schedule appointment” process contains logic that is common across multiple entities, which can be called by product, geography, or channel-specific parent services.
Experience APIs are the means by which data can be reconfigured so that it is most easily consumed by its intended audience, all from a common data source, rather than setting up separate point-to-point integrations.
