Equicare Health and Lexington Medical Center collaborate on oncology integration project

Vancouver, CANADA – August 23, 2017– Equicare Health Inc., the leading supplier of Oncology care coordination solutions, teams up with Lexington Medical Center to expand integration to include Enterprise Electronic Health Record (EHR) information. The new integration gives customers using an enterprise EHR the opportunity to integrate data from their EHR Medical Oncology Information System with Equicare’s Care Coordination system (ECS).  For organizations running one Oncology Information System (OIS) or a variety of vendor systems in many locations, Equicare serves as a bridge to consolidate data, manage compliance, and engage patients. The system streamlines data flows and allows patients and care providers to securely access data 24 hours a day, regardless of treatment location.

“When we recently switched our Medical Oncology system, we worked with Equicare to add support for integration to our Epic enterprise EHR,” says Jo Anne Covar, Director of Integration and Development at Lexington Medical Center. “With this integration now in place, we can consolidate patient data in ECS from the OIS systems used in both our Medical and Radiation Oncology departments. Our partnership with Equicare has allowed us to meet our goals of providing a robust navigation and survivorship program that operates across Oncology, minimizes duplicate data entry, and embeds clinical best practices.”

“Two additional collaboration projects with Equicare are pending as well. One will be to develop a single-sign-on (SSO) solution between the Equicare Patient Portal – which is designed for oncology patients – and our EHR enterprise portal. The second project will be to design and implement some additional integration points between the two portals using the new Fast Healthcare Interoperability Resources (FHIR) standard,” adds Covar. “This will provide enhanced navigation and improved portal access capability in order to give our oncology patients a more seamless experience.”

The new feature contributes to the automated creation of oncology-specific survivorship care plans by extracting demographic, appointment, staging, chemotherapy, and hormone data from a customer’s EHR Medical Oncology Information System. When combined with existing functionality and data extracted from other OIS systems, the need for extra HL7 interfaces is dramatically reduced. The Equicare integration with this EHR provider will give customers more options for managing Oncology care coordination.

“We’ve been providing rich integration with other OIS systems for some time. By adding support for an EHR Medical Oncology Information System, we provide more options for customers requesting to use Equicare’s navigation and survivorship tools across their Oncology practice,” says Margaret Nash, VP of Global Sales at Equicare Health. “We are pleased to be in a position to close this gap for them and can’t thank the team at Lexington Medical Center enough for their leadership in this area.”
