ELLKAY is known for empowering healthcare organizations with end-to-end connectivity, providing interoperability for digital health vendors to hundreds of sources for patient intake and population health management. This connectivity assists in moving data through Higi's consumer-centric ecosystem as the back-end to facilitate the movement of consumer health data into health systems and health plan's systems. Higi's systems were built on the belief that consumers' health information is their own, the consumer should choose who can access and act on that data, and that when the consumer chooses to share it, the process should be simple and secure.
Gurpreet Singh, Vice President of Interoperability Solutions at ELLKAY, added, "We are grateful to partner with Higi, who is a market leader in the industry. They enable patients to easily share their data with trusted healthcare partners, and we are proud to play a part in that initiative through providing interoperability between Higi and their partners."
Higi's partners, such as providers and health plans, must receive collected data in an actionable format so it can be consumable at scale from the start. Higi chose to work with ELLKAY, who is best-in-class, to provide this functionality and because of ELLKAY's ability to tackle and solve complex projects.
