Automatic Data Processing Increases Security

The SMARTBridge™ is an automatic data processing module available to cloud-based SMART EHR users. It provides secure and automatic transmission of medical records, lab results, and financial data. It also allows managers to track activities through a dedicated portal directly accessible from SMART.

Benefits of Automatic Data Processing with SMARTBridge™

Secures information

The SMARTBridge helps ensure safety of private patent information. It collects and posts information directly to electronic charts. This eliminates the need to manually enter results, saving your time and money.

The module automatically processes inbound Health Level 7 (HL7) messages from other software applications instantly upon receipt. It also generates outbound HL-7 messages to exchange data securely with other applications. The SMARTBridge is HIPAA compliant and only accessible directly by SMART’s IT team. 

Scales to your needs

Scales to your needs

When opening a new clinic, or a network of clinics, scalability of your current technology should be a primary concern. With the SMARTBridge size and performance of your database can be adjusted with no downtime. This keeps all your clinics running at peak performance and financial efficiency.

Makes billing more predictable

HIPAA Compliant Cloud Storage for OTPs

HIPAA Compliant Cloud Storage SMARTs EHRSMART’s new EHR hosting platform features HIPAA compliant cloud storage powered by Amazon Web Services (AWS) to increase efficiency, safely. AWS helps covered entities subject to HIPAA regulations process, maintain, and store protected health information.

What You Can Expect from HIPAA Compliant Cloud Storage

Improves efficiency 

Amazon Web Service (AWS) offers a broad set of global services. These include compute, storage, database, analytics, application, and deployment services. This helps organizations move faster, lower IT costs, and scale applications. Moreover, AWS is a trusted and proven solution used by hundreds of thousands of business, operating in 190 countries. Incorporating this technology enables SMART to deliver the most powerful EHR solution yet.

It also improves the speed and performance of dosing and reports by enabling simultaneous read/write processes to occur across multiple replicated endpoints. Acadia Billing manager Deb R. said “I love the fact that the billing on Monday is incredibly fast. I mean unbelievably! Tasks that usually take 15-20 minutes now take under a minute!” 

Enhances data protection

SMART’s new cloud also leverages Amazon Aurora, a database engine that delivers high-performance and reliability with real-time redundant backups and 99.995% uptime. Moreover, recovery from physical storage failures is transparent, and instant failover typically requires less than 30 seconds. Aurora’s storage is fault-tolerant and self-healing. Amazon continuously backs up six copies of your data and replicates them across three availability zones.

Improves security 

Amazon Aurora also provides SMART’s EHR users multiple levels of database security. The first level is network isolation using Amazon’s virtual private cloud (VPC). Access controls and boundaries from other networks in the AWS Cloud protect Amazon VPC. They closely resemble a traditional network that you would operate in your own data center with the benefit of the scalable infrastructure of AWS. Next is encryption-at-rest using keys you create and control through AWS Key Management Services (KMS). Lastly, encryption of data in transit using SSL. On an encrypted Amazon Aurora instance, data in the underlying storage is encrypted as are the automated backups, snapshots, and replicas in the same cluster.

Increases scalability

SMART’s shift to the highly-scalable, fully-managed AWS cloud database affords partners several advantages. Such as exclusive access to the latest developments like the SMARTBridge™. It also saves on operational costs by decreasing the need for equipment upgrades, IT resources, and EHR updates.
