Akana Healthcare Solution

Healthcare is in the midst of a digital transition that serves the industry’s goals of reducing operating costs and improving patient outcomes. To help healthcare organizations achieve these goals, Akana’s Healthcare Solution offers a comprehensive digital solution focusing on delivery, security, and interoperability: opening up communications between patients, hospitals, specialists, labs and many others who participate in a patient’s healthcare outcome.


Extend the Reach of Healthcare

Digital Healthcare and innovation in pharmaceuticals is being driven by recent technology trends. It is critical to communicate at real time with patients, clinical trial practitioners and healthcare professionals. Healthcare and pharmaceutical organizations today face new IT expectations, including:

  • Defining datasets from industry standards such as CDISC and FHIR to support data capture protocols
  • Publishing APIs to a healthcare community
  • Creating new APIs with a configuration not coding approach
  • Managing the exposure and consumption of the API through a developer portal tailored for each community

Interoperable Healthcare

Multiple entities in the healthcare ecosystem must interact in order to produce a positive health outcome for a single patient. However, each entity can have several systems that might store fragments of a patient’s larger EHR. The HL7® FHIR® (Fast Healthcare Interoperability Resource) standard plays a pivotal role in ensuring the much-needed next generation healthcare interoperability. Akana’s support for FHIR® paves the way healthcare transformation due to its focus on ease of implementation and interoperability.

  • Validate resource profiles against FHIR® schema and auto-generate the API Description Language
  • Integrate with existing FHIR server implementation or leverage a FHIR® implementation delivered by the Akana Professional Services team based on the open source HAPI project
  • Map FHIR® resources to backend data stores

Healthcare Resource Protection

As healthcare organizations become more open and interoperable, it is important to ensure that the right people see the right data and are able to preform the right tasks. Akana facilitates these capabilities:

  • Centrally define policies based on healthcare security tags and technical classifications
  • Audit the application and enforcement of policies to eliminate risk and combat the perception that the wrong people got access.

Healthcare DevOps

Digital transformation in healthcare must happen rapidly due to regulations, deadlines, the need to reduce operating costs and the mandate to provide better healthcare outcomes. Healthcare is one industry where going digital is a life-saving and life-sustaining measure. As a result, it is even more critical than ever to provide effective control and auditing over the complete software development lifecycle (SDLC), including the deployment blueprint. Akana enables Healthcare DevOps:

  • Manage the development lifecycle and assets, including the application topology and deployment blueprints
  • Maintain an audited approval process to control changes to key assets

Healthcare Analytics

Successfully transitioning to digital healthcare requires that you know who is accessing patient data, what information are they are accessing, where they are accessing the data and from where, how it impacts your business and whether it meets your operational service level agreements (SLAs). Akana Healthcare analytics provides healthcare and operational analytics to stay ahead of emerging demands and optimize their business:

  • Track patient, provider, and healthcare professional trends
  • Identify top APIs and top Apps, analyze API licensing, monetization and fine tune developer onboarding
  • Export and Import analytics into Business Intelligence systems.

Metadata Management - Efficiently Manage Data Lifecycle

In any industry where data is a major component for compliance (e.g., Biotechnology/Pharmaceutical), regulators need to efficiently review and process the submitted data. To achieve these goals, many regulators have established data standards. Data standards alone are not enough to overcome these issues. Only through Semantic Interoperability can regulatory agencies and industry achieve benefits from these standards. By binding systems to robust common domain terminology produced by standards development organizations (SDOs), industry can more efficiently implement end-to-end data lifecycle processes.
