SAN DIEGO, June 24, 2021: Seqster PDM Inc. ("Seqster"), a pioneer in patient-centric healthcare data technology, announced today that it has joined CommonWell Health Alliance® and completed certification in less than two months to become a CommonWell Service Adopter.
Through its CommonWell Connected® Seqster platform, Seqster clients now have the ability to connect and exchange health data bi-directionally with the more than 22,000 healthcare provider sites in the CommonWell nationwide network. This builds upon Seqster clients' ability to provide a longitudinal personalized health record for patients, compiling EHR, DNA, fitness wearables and remote monitoring device data through the Seqster white-label Web & Mobile SDK.
"With real-time patient-centered data, faster diagnosis, prevention and intervention should be realized by the providers and their care team. This, in turn, can lead to better outcomes, improved quality of care and an enhanced patient journey, while at the same time helping reduce costs," stated Ardy Arianpour, CEO & Co-Founder of Seqster.
"Seqster was founded on the principle of patient empowerment, a key element of any impactful interoperability strategy, by enabling access to and ownership of their 360° health data in real-time. By becoming a CommonWell Service Adopter, Seqster adds to its comprehensive health data interoperability platform to advance our mission to impact lives at scale."
With the impending July 1, 2021, deadline for 21st Century Cures Act (CMS-ONC Interoperability Rules) compliance, the ability to create this longitudinal personalized health record for patients is paramount. True interoperability can unlock various capabilities for providers, such as the ability to operationalize value-based care, enable precision medicine, and streamline onboarding for oncology and rare disease patients for whom time and data access is especially vital.
"Our members are essential to ensuring CommonWell fulfills its mission to enable scalable, trusted and reliable interoperability nationwide," said Paul Wilder, executive director, CommonWell Health Alliance. "We're thrilled to partner with Seqster to empower clinicians, practitioners and individuals, helping to improve care coordination, the patient experience and health outcomes."
