2020 has taught us that health IT must evolve at a rapid pace to meet the needs of patients and providers. Creating a seamlessly connected world is key to breakthrough innovation.
The Cerner Open Developer Experience (code) program encourages third-party vendors and care organizations to build apps on top of Cerner technology that can quickly advance the health industry through improved interoperability capabilities.
In our three-part podcast series, code Talks, tech leaders share their insights around advancing care through collaboration and open and interoperable health ecosystems.
Ep. 197: Developing a high-quality health care app through an efficient, detailed validation process
In this episode, we hear from Aaron Sheedy, chief operating officer and co-founder of Xealth, a platform that enables clinicians to integrate, prescribe and monitor digital health tools for patients from one location in the electronic health record (EHR). Aaron talks about how the Cerner code validation and certification process helped drive quality, safety, security and usability for the Xealth app. He also gives his outlook for digital health and application programming interfaces.
Ep. 198: Simplifying telehealth with seamless electronic health record integration
Amwell offers telehealth integration within the Cerner EHR to give providers a single, unified workflow and improve access to care for patients. In this episode, Amwell Senior Vice President of Devices, Cory Costley, dives into the rapid growth of telehealth during COVID-19, examines how the Cerner code program helps break down barriers to health IT adoption and explores the industry’s shift toward more proactive care.
Ep. 199: Leveraging interoperability and open platforms for better care
Shez Partovi, M.D., worldwide lead of business development for healthcare, life sciences, genomics and medical devices at Amazon Web Services (AWS), discusses the importance of connecting patient data across the care continuum. Dr. Partovi also explains the role of interoperability, open standards in reducing care costs and providing more personalized health care.
The code program is leading health care innovation by opening our ecosystem to create new technologies and applications. Developers interested in building applications that integrate into client workflows can learn more here.
