The Digital Gateway for

Ocean unlocks connections between healthcare providers, systems and the patients they serve to support more open, efficient and equitable care.

Over the past decade, a digital evolution in healthcare has led to a vast ecosystem of solutions designed to manage and store patient data. The next phase of health system transformation will require new ways to securely access and exchange that information between patients, healthcare providers, and systems.  

That’s where Ocean comes in.

The Ocean Platform uses modern HL7 FHIR® standards to connect the many systems that store patient health information. Ocean’s powerful suite of software tools then provides ways for patients and providers to access that information for patient engagement, clinic administration, clinical service requests and more.

By centralizing data exchange through a single network, Ocean also provides anonymized data to support system-level improvements and more equitable care.

Patient health information (PHI) is stored across a variety of technology systems, from electronic medical records (EMRs) in primary care clinics to Hospital Information Systems (HIS) in acute care, to systems supporting long term care coordination and patient management.   

Underlying the Ocean Platform is the Ocean FHIR® Integration Layer. Built on open, international standards for an Application Programming interface (API), Ocean allows technology solutions to easily connect to the Ocean Platform, thereby creating connections for the secure exchange of patient data between those systems.
