eClinicalWorks Becomes One of the First EHR Companies to Integrate with CMS Blue Button 2.0 API

Technology helps empower physicians and patients to improve health

NASHVILLE, Tenn.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–eClinicalWorks®,
a leader in healthcare IT solutions, today announced it has become one
of the first Electronic Health Record (EHR) companies to be approved and
to integrate with the Centers
for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) Blue Button® 2.0 API
. The
Blue Button 2.0 API contains four years of Medicare Part A, B and D data
for 53 million Medicare beneficiaries. eClinicalWorks will support the
Consumer-Directed Exchange, covering numerous functions to improve
patient access to health data and assist in informed health decisions.

Blue Button 2.0 data reveals a variety of information about a
beneficiary’s health, including type of Medicare coverage, drug
prescriptions, primary care treatment and cost. Beneficiaries also have
full control over how their data can be used and by whom, with identity
and authorization controlled by MyMedicare.gov. Blue Button 2.0 uses
the HL7® FHIR® (Fast Healthcare
Interoperability Resources) standard for beneficiary data and the OAuth
2.0 standard for beneficiary authorization.

“eClinicalWorks has developed strong partnerships and continued
collaborations with its customers and industry vendors with the main
goal of further enhancing access to health data,” said Girish Navani,
CEO and cofounder of eClinicalWorks. “Integrating with CMS Blue Button
2.0 API demonstrates our commitment to supporting Consumer-Directed
Exchange to help Medicare beneficiaries and providers streamline patient
data and improve health outcomes.”
