Redox — the startup founded by 3 Epic engineers — integrates with Microsoft Teams: 3 notes

Redox, an interoperability startup founded by three former Epic engineers, is integrating with Microsoft Teams.

Three things to know:

1. Redox offers an interoperable network that enables healthcare organizations, payers, pharmaceutical companies and technology providers to share healthcare data with one another. Participating organizations connect once to authorize the data they send and receive.

2. Redox is now integrating with Microsoft Teams, a business app that offers workplace chat, meetings, notes and attachment functions on one platform. Under the integration, clinicians at hospitals that use Teams will be able to securely share EHR data with one another on the platform.

3. The data exchange capabilities are powered by Fast Healthcare Interoperability Resources, a standards framework better known as FHIR.

"Working with leading healthcare interoperability suppliers, such as Redox, we are bringing Microsoft's capabilities to healthcare providers as they adopt the cloud," Mike Ammerlaan, director of the Microsoft Office 365 Ecosystem, said in a news release. "This [integration] enables clinicians to facilitate communication about patient care in real-time within Teams' secure platform."
