analytics tools that are driven by cloud technology ,” said Luke Bonney , CEO , Redox . “ Redox was designed to support these new tools with enterprise-scale data exchange with hospitals , clinics , health plans , Healthcare Information Exchanges , networks and other sources that provide the foundation of healthcare data .
" Together , Redox and Google Cloud enable providers and health plans to maximise the use of their legacy system data in a single cloud database up to 80 % faster than other solutions ."

Redox , a leader in healthcare interoperability , and Google Cloud have announced a partnership to simplify the exchange of healthcare data so organisations can make better and faster decisions . By easily onboarding health data from legacy systems into Google Cloud products , like Healthcare Data Engine and Healthcare API , organisations can build longitudinal views to better serve their patients and members . As a part of the partnership , Redox will replicate its platform on Google Cloud , offering customers the full range of Redox ' s world-class products , services and experiences .

The information healthcare leaders and administrators need is often siloed across multiple IT systems and organisations . In addition , it is difficult to access , often taking years to exact and normalise . It may be buried deep in the patient record or spread across databases that don ' t speak to each other .
Improving the flow and unification of data across healthcare systems – referred to as interoperability – is critical to helping organisations run more effectively , improving patient care and enabling people to live healthier lives .
There is a growing body of regulatory requirements in the US that reinforce interoperability of patient data as a priority for providers and health plans . The Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology ( ONC ) Cures Act Final Rule requires that patients have secure access to their electronic health information to use and share and the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services ( CMS ) Interoperability and Patient Access Rule requires that health plans participating in federal exchanges share claims data with patients electronically .

With Redox Healthcare Integration – now available on Google Cloud Marketplace – health plans , providers , life science , medical device companies and digital health organisations can incorporate standards like HL7v2 , C-CDA , X12 , DICOM , and more into FHIR , leveraging existing provider integrations and libraries . This makes it faster and easier for organisations to use Google Cloud ' s Healthcare API and Healthcare Data Engine , enabling an interoperable , longitudinal record of patient data .
" When we first collaborated with Redox and saw how fast we could help a healthcare organisation further accelerate data interoperability , we had an ' aha ' moment ," said Chris Sakalosky , Vice President , Strategic Industries at Google Cloud .
" With this partnership , we continue to help organisations across the healthcare spectrum tackle the most complex data harmonisation challenges , unlocking insights and improving outcomes ." �
