JBS International to Present its Solution for Healthcare Data Exchange: HIMSS Showcase, March 1-3, Las Vegas, NV

March 1, 2016

North Bethesda, MD, March 1, 2016 -- JBS International will demonstrate its Public Health Reporting-Interoperability Solution (PHR-IS), part of its Healthcare Data Exchange suite of solutions, at the 2016 Health Information Management Systems Society (HIMSS) Interoperability Showcase from March 1 to 3 in Las Vegas, NV (Booth 11954, Level 1, ONC/FHA Vignette - V10).

JBS will demonstrate the mandatory reporting requirement of Sexually Transmitted Disease (STD) data to state public health agencies and reporting of cancer data to state public health cancer registries using PHR-IS, as part of the Office of the National Coordinator for Health IT (ONC)’s Technology Vignette.

The PHR-IS provides direct integration with Electronic Health Record (EHR) systems to capture the public health event data from the provider’s system. This approach significantly reduces time required for public health reporting, minimizes data errors and ensures that the public health agency receives high quality data that can be immediately analyzed. The data routed through the JBS Data Exchange is guaranteed to be compatible with the destination system’s message and data format requirements. 

“This healthcare interoperability solution will highlight seamless health information exchange in multiple care settings,” said JBS co-CEO Jerri Shaw, “and it will show how standards-based solutions make all the difference in patient care and clinician workflow.”

The PHR-IS uses the published Fast Healthcare Interoperability Resources (FHIR), Integrating the Healthcare Enterprise (IHE), and Structured Data Capture (SDC) standard.

“PHR-IS is a Reference Implementation prototype developed for ONC to demonstrate use for structured data for public health reporting events. It provides a valuable ‘last-mile’ connection to system repositories and registries where transformed data is immediately usable and actionable,” said Vice President of IT Solutions and Services Latif Khalil. “Our team has been engaged with ONC’s Structured Data Capture (SDC) initiative since its inception and has led the harmonization and development of the SDC standard.”
