OSF HealthCare selects Redox platform to enhance digital interoperability

Peoria, Ill.-based OSF HealthCare will deploy Redox, an interoperability startup founded by former Epic engineers, to enhance digital solutions systemwide.

Redox's platform uses fast healthcare interoperability resources to provide an interoperable, cloud-based network that allows healthcare organizations, payers, pharmaceutical companies and technology providers to share healthcare data with one another.

Joining the Redox network will help accelerate OSF HealthCare's cloud strategy and implement digital solutions aimed at improving patient and provider experiences and population health. For example, the healthcare system, which comprises 13 hospitals, currently uses Epharmix, an app in Redox's network, which is a remote patient monitoring system that sends clinicians text messages and phone calls with alerts if a patient response indicates a worsening condition.

"Beyond the benefits of the platform, we chose Redox because many of the applications we're adopting are already part of the network," OSF HealthCare Director of Innovation Partnerships Rob Jennetten said in a news release. "This will allow us to accelerate testing and implementation of these next-generation applications. Redox is integral to our digital transformation roadmap."

The Redox network comprises more than 400 healthcare delivery organizations, which use hundreds of healthcare apps. Redox recently integrated with Microsoft Teams, a business app that offers workplace chat and meeting functions, among others.
