Who are your products for?

We offer our SMARTerFHIR tool for software developers to integrate into EMRs faster and more easily, and tools for clinics and hospitals to automate workflows. To learn more drop us an email.

How does Topology Health save time?

Topology Health does tasks in the background using existing EMR data, eliminating the need for “swivel chair interoperability” (manual data entry). All of our data is saved in our server as structured HL7 FHIR resources, so we can even share them with other FHIR capable servers! By standardizing the data and reading existing data out of EMRs we’re able to do tasks for busy clinicians and save them time.

How easy is it to implement Topology Health at my health facility?

Our tools use modern health IT standards including HL7 FHIR. and we’re always testing in the latest EMR sandboxes. Feel free to talk to us about integrating our tools with your EMR or digital health app.

I'm not sure if we support FHIR. How can I be sure my facility is ready for Topology Health?

The 21st Century Cures Act has sped up the adoption of HL7 FHIR interfaces. We recommend investigating what your EMR vendor supports regarding FHIR, specifically SMART on FHIR. If you have FHIR support from your EMR vendor connecting our software, or other software through our platform should be a breeze!

What kinds of use cases can your applications automate?

Our tools are designed to be customizable so you can create a lot of different automations. We can do everything from clinical recommendations, to pushing data between different health systems. If there’s something you want to do please let us know and we’ll work with you on it. Here are some examples of what you can do:

• Recommend switching a patient off from one drug to another

• Send an email or notification when a critical lab result is available

• Automatically push data to a patient portal

• Send documentation to an insurance provider on a specific patient for a specific encounter

I don't know how to code, can I still use your tools?

Yes! In fact we highly encourage it! We built a low-code tool just for you. We’re trying to make developing and automating health tasks as easy as possible. That’s why we use a simple “if, then” model for representing all our automations. For example, “if there is a critical lab result available, then notify chief via coordination platform.”

How easy is it to change a workflow once I create it?

Once you create an automation, it becomes part of your institution’s account. You can log in and change it at any time, assuming you have the right permissions. We also offer a service where we can help you create your automations.

Why are you so focused on making integration and automation easier for software developers?

In our experience building digital health apps, we’ve found that it takes a long time to build an app that integrates with EMRs, even with updated standards. We also found that clinicians want integration because they lose so much time switching between apps. Some clinicians reported that they have to log in to 4 different apps to get all the information they need for a patient encounter, but then they only update what they did in one, resulting in data being out of sync, which makes it more difficult for the next clinician to care for that patient. By giving developers tools to integrate their systems, we can build better automations to save clinicians time and improve patient care.

What's the 21st Century Cures Act and why should I care?

The 21st Century Cures Act changes the game for healthcare app developers. EMRs are now sharing their data through more standardized and modern interfaces. That’s why we built SMARTerFHIR to help developers get connected to EMRs in minutes rather than months.
