Silver Spring, MD, September 28, 2017 –AMDEX Corporation announced today that the Department of Health and Human Services’ (HHS) Federal Health Architecture (FHA) initiative – has been named a 2017 FedHealthIT Innovation Award recipient for its CONNECT Empowering Opioid Exchange pilot program designed by AMDEX with our subcontractor CGI. The program identifies possible use and misuse of prescription drugs by linking federally managed patient records with state prescription data records.
By developing a solution to join the existing FHA CONNECT open source software – which supports the secure exchange of health information for more than 2,000 organizations across the U.S. –to an existing state-to-state prescription drug services system, AMDEX helps FHA support interoperability across the entire federal health enterprise.
To expand CONNECT’s current capabilities, the team surveyed the existing exchange environment between states, established connectivity and enabled transactions to query patient prescription drug data from the existing state-to-state exchange Prescription Monitoring Program (called InterConnect). Our team designed and developed the plugin for accessing the InterConnect system.
Federal agencies are now able to pull in prescription test data from a national prescription exchange using federally trusted open-source software. The functionality this tool provides can be leveraged by a variety of federal agencies, providing a cost effective, open source solution. AMDEX looks forward to our continued partnership with FHA to support national health IT standards and interoperability across the federal health enterprise.
FHA is an e-government initiative managed by the Office of the National Coordinator for Health IT (ONC) within HHS. Among its many accomplishments, FHA and its 20+ federal partners are responsible for developing CONNECT.
AMDEX is proud to partner with FHA on CONNECT, providing exchange compatibility (including attaining product validation for the eHealth exchange).
