Marble Pioneers Patient-Authorized Digital Data Access
DALLAS and TORONTO, May 16, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- As legislation, including the 21st Century Cures Act and CMS Interoperability and Patient Access final rule, paves the way for patient rights to control their data, Marble has continuously set the standard for patient-authorized data access across all health networks, including state and regional Health Information Exchanges (HIEs). The company is connected to more than 50,000 health organizations across North America via the Carequality Interoperability Framework.
Leveraging Carequality Interoperability Framework to Increase Patient Access
Marble successfully forged relationships to empower millions of consumers with access to their health records. Marble’s customers initiated their queries through the Medchart request portal or Marble application programming interface (APIs) for records. They could retrieve their patient information electronically from over 600,000 providers and 4,200 hospitals connected to the framework nationwide. Patients, and businesses serving patients, that want to leverage the Carequality framework for patient data access and integrate with other healthcare data sources, can use the Marble API to eliminate integration complexty.
Positioning Marble for the 21st Century Cures Act and TEFCA
“Connectivity and seamless information exchange are requirements in today’s data-driven environment,” said Alan Swenson, executive director of Carequality and a TEFCA Recognized Coordinating Entity (RCE) leader. “Marble is in the right place at the right time—serving as a patient authorization access point delivering health information where and when needed.”
“Healthcare leaders must stay apprised of where the industry is headed and plan beyond current compliance. Marble plays a core part in these advancements,” said James Bateman, CEO of Marble. “Core to our DNA, we’re prepared to serve as the gateway for patient-mediated data exchange with all Carequality-enabled health networks, including all other national, state, and regional HIEs. Simplifying the consent processes addresses regulatory concerns and positions providers to fulfill patient needs by ensuring health information gets where it needs to be as quickly and cost-effectively as possible.”
