Electronic health record integration connects the EHR software at medical organizations with other relevant software solutions used for operations. This is done so that healthcare providers and other concerned staff from various departments can access medical records for their jobs. Electronic health record integration is achieved through an application programming interface (API) bridging software. The integration of EHR systems is called healthcare interoperability, and it works by facilitating seamless electronic data exchange between software platforms at a hospital or clinic. In other words, integration enables patients’ health records to be accessed across other software solutions, allowing greater cohesion and productivity across an organization.
When all the departments and staff at a hospital or clinic can work cohesively and exchange required information without hassle, they can be more productive. In other words, they can work faster and with greater efficiency. A digital platform ensures that accessing information for care, billing, or administration takes a few clicks, which means that a relatively smaller staff can do more. As a result, there is a reduction in overhead.
A comprehensive digital platform incorporating all the healthcare software through EHR integration ultimately leads to fast and efficient operations. Providers would access patient data faster, the activities surrounding insurance verification, billing, and claims would be sped up, and the wait times would be reduced. This ultimately adds to a better patient experience regarding non-clinical aspects of healthcare. This also permeates into better care, which further benefits patients.
The existing software platforms must incorporate more third-party applications as a hospital grows and offers more services. OSP can offer EHR integration solutions that are scalable and which can accommodate growing numbers of solutions. This will be especially beneficial for hospitals looking to expand their services since scalable EHR integration would prevent the need for revamping the entire digital infrastructure.
We’ve reached out and found companies like OSP to create our technology. This is my first time working with a company that has been so thorough. These guys are amazing. If you really are looking for someone for a technology solution, these guys are the real deal.-- Stephen Carter
We reached out to OSP to provide an estimate on a technology solution we were interested in developing. From the initial conversation, the team was professional, courteous, and thorough. We were able to make a quick decision to move forward with OSP because we were confident that our requirements were accurately captured and the development deliverables and associated costs were clear.
The OSP development team stayed on schedule and within budget throughout the build phase and provided weekly communications to keep our team informed along the way. If we require application development in the future, OSP will be the first call we make.-- Selita Jansen
We have worked closely with OSP for two years, meeting twice a week to work through development requirements, strategy, design, progress, and support. OSP has become an integral part of our business, and our mutual teams work together as one team. OSP tackles problems that arise with integrity and operate with respect for budgeting.-- Charlie Langdon
Yes, I would certainly recommend their services because they were diligent and the offered price was very reasonable which is a challenge these days to get a great product at excellent pricing.-- Bert Lurch
OSP has created a custom app and script to integrate the client’s SCN Scanner device with EPIC EHR.
We built a platform to connect home care agencies with experienced clinicians and provide house calls.
We developed a website for efficient senior care and which connects doctors, patients, and families of patients.
We built a custom medical billing, credentialing, practice management suite.
We built a tailored RPM solution with telehealth features.
We built a technology solution to address the shortage of Maternal Fetal Medicine experts.

EHR integration enables a medical records solution to exchange data with other software for day-to-day workflows. This integration allows two software platforms from varying programming languages, data formats, and standards to communicate information seamlessly.
EHR integration enables the platform to exchange data with other medical software platforms quickly and securely. The ability to send and receive patient data with a few clicks maximizes the speed and productivity of all workflows at healthcare organizations. This means that the billing, coding, claims, testing, and front-office administration staff can access all the necessary information and work faster.
EHR integration services enable providers to get the complete medical information of their patients from any location. This lets them know their patients’ health situation and make better decisions. This is especially important during emergencies. An EHR integration API ultimately helps providers serve their patients better.
In addition to clinical care, integration allows the productivity of front-office operations. Activities like insurance verification, pre-authorization, medical coding, billing, and claims generation are accelerated. As a result, there are fewer claim denials, unexpected charges, reduced wait times, and fewer treatment errors. This improves the overall experience for the patients.
EMR stands for electronic medical records, whereas EHR stands for electronic health records. An EMR is a patient’s medical chart in digital format. But an EHR is the complete medical information about a patient. The EHR would contain medical history, demographic information, insurance information, immunizations, allergies, payment history, etc.
An EMR is restricted to a single practice or clinic. On the other hand, an EHR can be shared outside an organization with other providers for collaboration.
These include a list of things that legally identifies a person. It can include name, social security number, patient identification number, contact number, picture, etc.
This includes the patients’ personal information like name, date of birth, address, and insurance information.
These contain all the diagnoses made for a patient during their lifetime through blood tests, scans, etc.
As the name suggests, this includes all the medications prescribed to the patients and medications that the patient might still be taking.
This includes all the results garnered from testing a patient’s blood, saliva, stools, and urine.
Vital signs include heart rate, electrocardiogram, blood pressure, body temperature, and oxygen saturation. These indicate the basic health of a person.
EHR integration would allow medical organizations to exchange sensitive patient data among various departments and other organizations. This raises the question of the compatibility of the software platforms to exchange data. That is because all those software solutions would be developed by different companies using varying programming languages, tech stacks, data formats, and standards.
Any problems with integration would raise issues about the ability of the systems to share data securely. Integration problems could unintentionally result in data being accessed by unauthorized individuals or parts of it being corrupted. Either of these could jeopardize the confidentiality or integrity of patients’ health information.
EHR integration software allows multiple health systems to exchange patients’ medical data quickly and easily. This gives providers a more complete picture of their patient’s health. The integration itself is possible through the use of a type of software called application programming interface (API).
While two or more healthcare software platforms might be developed differently, integrating them allows data exchange. The API acts as a bridging software that translates the data formats when the data travels between systems, allowing it to be read and processed by the recipient. EHR integration enables different systems to interoperate to boost the productivity of workflows.
It is one of the most widely-used interoperability platforms for medical data transfer.
