Real estate and health information technology provider empower EHR interoperability between senior living and acute care settings
SANTA BARBARA, Calif., Oct. 5, 2020 – Yardi® has significantly expanded interoperability in Yardi® EHR through a new integration with Kno2®. Kno2’s Interoperability as a Service™ (IaaS) enables Yardi EHR clients to securely share clinical records with 2.4+ million health care providers nationwide.
Although electronic health records are standard in hospitals and senior living communities, transferring patient data between systems remains challenging. Providers still regularly share clinical information via fax, phone or printouts. These manual methods can lead to mistakes and omissions, which impacts care continuity during critical transitions.
The Kno2 integration, available as an add-on for all Yardi EHR clients, allows senior living staff to streamline and receive clinical information, such as referrals coming from various sources, as well as participate in value-based care coordination. For incoming residents, health data automatically flows into Yardi EHR. If clinical information needs to be shared with an external provider, or if hospital readmissions are necessary, senior living providers can send records out in the most interoperable format that the receiving provider can support. Soon, Yardi EHR clients will also be able to participate in secured, on-demand access to patient records, by participating in Carequality, enabled through the Kno2 IaaS Gateway.
“Having complete health records immediately available is essential to ensuring resident safety and an effective care transition to senior living,” said Ray Elliott, vice president of senior living for Yardi. “Interoperability breaks down the barriers between providers so information exchange can happen seamlessly. By integrating Yardi EHR with Kno2, we’re helping our clients get the clinical records they need, when they need it.”
“As the nation’s largest provider of post-acute interoperability services, we are proud to see the expansion of interoperability into additional care settings, including senior living communities,” said Jon Elwell, chief executive officer at Kno2. “Yardi’s integration with Kno2 allows for seamless care transitions and sharing of critical patient information between the senior living community and the providers participating in their care, improving coordination and reducing administrative burden from a historically manual process.”
Yardi EHR clients can contact their support team to find out more about the Kno2 integration. For more on Yardi’s electronic health record solution for senior living, visit the Yardi EHR product page.
