Cognosante, LLC today announced new technology enhancements that are providing State of Alabama Medicaid recipients more efficient access to their personal health information. The new Alabama One Health Record® (ALOHR) MyHealth™ mobile application, developed by Cognosante, provides Alabamians secure and private access to the health data they need to manage their care. This latest app release puts clinical and healthcare claims data in the hands of patients, making Alabama a leader in CMS Interoperability and Patient Access Rule compliance.
The ALOHR MyHealth solution delivers a new Fast Healthcare Interoperability Resources (FHIR) interface, using modern data standards to securely enable patient access to health data. This access is complemented by the ALOHR MyHealth mobile application that presents the data in a patient-friendly, readable format. The application leverages Amazon Government Cloud (AWS GovCloud) to deliver demographic, clinical, and Medicaid claims data to Alabama Medicaid recipients and their dependents in a robust, secure and highly flexible environment. MyHealth™ was introduced to a small pilot group in July 2021, enabling Cognosante to engage their human-centered design methodology, JUVO™, to improve the user experience, and formally released MyHealth ™ to all ALOHR users in December 2021.
“Cognosante is proud to continually deliver purposeful innovation and enhanced value to the State of Alabama as we move healthcare interoperability forward,” says Erick Peters, Chief Technology Officer at Cognosante. “In developing ALOHR MyHealth™, we combined our healthcare domain expertise, innovative eSante® solution suite, JUVO Human Centered Design, and Amazon Web Services partnership to move the needle on health information exchange across the state.”
“The new patient access application and integration with Alabama Medicaid’s eligibility system, is key to expanding electronic access to administrative and clinical data for all Medicaid recipients across the state,” says Gary Parker, Director of the Alabama One Health Record®.
