HIPAA Compliance and HL7 Data Exchange Transformation

Exchange HIPAA-compliant data to improve outcomes and efficiency.

Sharing data between clinical and financial systems is challenging. Rarely are the two data formats the same, even in the case of HL7 “standard” data.

Data originates everywhere: in the lab, in electronic medical record (EMR) systems, at payers, and within government agencies, for example. Each data source represents a valuable view of financial or clinical information. But you don’t want isolated views of this data; you want a trustworthy,comprehensive view that has been collected and transformed across systems in a way that is reliable, secure, and compliant. This has traditionally required labor-intensive, error-prone, and repetitive hand coding.

The Informatica solution provides accessibility to HIPAA and HL7 messages. It profiles and transforms all data simultaneously. Regardless of original format, complexity, or size, clinical and administrative data is transformed into a usable format and is then readily exchanged with your data warehouse or other clinical applications, or with your health information exchange partners.

With this solution for HIPAA-compliant data exchange and HL7 data transformation, you can:

  • Cut development and deployment time—reducing IT maintenance costs and eliminating error-prone hand coding
  • Comply with healthcare IT industry standards such as HIPAA and HL7, avoiding data loss and resulting penalties
  • Improve data quality and standardized formatting by connecting any data source to any other
  • Support analytics with trustworthy data
  • Meet regulatory requirements with HIPAA compliant data

Unlike an interface engine, the Informatica Solution for HIPAA and HL7 Data Transformation offers visibility into data lineage and high-volume batch processing and ensures consistent data quality.

Based on the Informatica Platform, this solution provides HIPAA-compliant data exchange and HL7 data transformation, and features the following capabilities:

  • Prebuilt and maintained HIPAA and HL7 libraries
  • Centralized point-and-click, mark-and-map process for defining data transformations
  • Document preprocessors to extract data locked in PDF, Word, and Excel
  • Broad set of prebuilt transformations such as HIPAA, HL7, and EDI
  • Simultaneous support for multiple versions of HIPAA and HL7 standards
  • Scalability for real-time and batch applications
  • Distributable deployment of data transformations to multiple platforms, including ESB, EAI, cloud, and Hadoop
  • End-to-end visibility of all exchanges with external healthcare exchange partners or other business partners to ensure data delivery and provide auditability
