MAP Health Management taps Wolters Kluwer Health for data exchange services

MAP Health Management — a provider of telehealth and patient engagement solutions for patients with chronic behavioral health disorders — will integrate Wolters Kluwer Health's Health Language platform to improve its data exchange practices.

Health Language, a terminology and data management solution, will support MAP Health Management's data sharing capabilities for its behavioral health services. Health Language uses a function called "sensitivity codes" to identify and filter information related to substance abuse, family planning and other sensitive data to ensure it doesn't leave a patient's original provider organization without their consent.

"Collaborative population health management is critical to improving clinical and financial outcomes in the behavioral health sector. However, providers may be reluctant to share patient records to avoid breach of patient confidentiality," said Avi Mukherjee, chief technology officer at MAP Health Management. "The Health Language platform alleviates these concerns."
