Coperor Health Data Exchange
What is a Gaine Health Data eXchange (HDX)?
Gaine Health Data eXchange (HDX) enables the exchange of information between companies across an entire ecosystem.
Symphony Provider Directory
The Symphony Provider Directory Utility in California (Symphony) is a visionary application of Gaine’s HDX capability. The Symphony Provider Directory is a statewide platform for plans and providers that serves as a single source for provider directory data such as demographics, services, products, and networks.
Symphony offers a standard approach to managing provider information that supports regulatory compliance and closes the information gap between providers and health plans.
“…[Symphony] serves as California’s statewide platform for provider data management, streamlining the way plans and providers share and reconcile provider information in compliance with state and federal regulatory requirements. […] Symphony is the result of collaboration among stakeholders across the healthcare industry, including plans, providers, purchasers, regulators, and others.”
– Integrated Healthcare Association, Implementation Insights From the Inaugural Year of California’s Statewide Provider Directory (Whitepaper)
There are hundreds of thousands of practitioners in the state, across tens of thousands of service locations, contracted to hundreds of health plans and networks. As of early 2021, Symphony manages:
- Over 170,000 practitioners
- More than 250 unique fields of provider data
- More than 10,000 provider organizations
- 115 Provider Groups
- 14 Health plans and purchasers
- … and growing
The Gaine Health Data eXchange enables the exchange of knowledge, not just data.
Exchanging data is not the same as exchanging knowledge.
If data does not share a common context, or compatible data standards it will not be meaningful to its audience. Even with the adoption of emerging data standards such as FHIR, the way individual companies interpret the standard and use the data fields leads to serious misalignments that defeat the sharing of knowledge.
HDX solves each of the pervasive challenges that frustrate the exchange of knowledge between contracted companies in an integrated ecosystem.
At the core of HDX are an industry model and a set of translation rules that conform data to a common standard both inbound to HDX and then outbound to each connected subscriber. Each subscribing system within HDX may maintain its unique data standards without impacting the way others integrate this information.
In addition, HDX gives each subscriber control of what they share and with whom. Data in HDX is encrypted and secure in line with HITECH guidelines.
HDX enables the secure exchange of data between independent companies with surgical precision.
Applications of HDX
HDX will simplify the sharing of information, lower costs and improve data quality for all connected subscribers. Any collection of companies, formal consortia, or even single organizations with discrete divisions can deploy an HDX hub to improve the exchange of information, not just data.
