Clinical Architecture Launches Nomad™ in Support of 21st Century Cures Act Compliance

New SaaS Healthcare Interoperability and Data Quality Solution Liberates Patient Data for the Masses

CARMEL, Ind., March 14, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Clinical Architecture today announced the launch of Nomad™, a turnkey, fully managed, interoperability and data quality solution. Nomad is aimed at helping healthcare organizations easily comply with the 21st Century Cures Act through a cost-effective, easy-to-use SaaS approach.

Interoperability provisions of the 21st Century Cures Act are transforming healthcare by putting the patient at the forefront of interoperability efforts. Central to its goal is the appropriate and necessary access to complete health records for patients, health care providers, and payers, using the United States Core Data for Interoperability (USCDI) standardized data set combined with HL7® FHIR® for nationwide, interoperable health information exchange.

However, not all organizations have the technology or people resources needed to comply. Nomad provides both in a cost-effective, flexible solution that can scale to meet the needs of any healthcare organization that needs to share their patient information.

Nomad ingests patient data in various formats, normalizes it to USCDI v2, enhances the data for improved quality, and then transforms it into a standard, predictable output such as FHIR. Drawing on the capabilities of Symedical®, Clinical Architecture's industry leading healthcare terminology and semantic normalization platform, Nomad combines powerful normalization and data quality capabilities into an integrated service. Using Nomad dramatically reduces the barriers and effort necessary to make high-quality, nationwide health information exchange a reality.

"Clinical Architecture is excited to announce Nomad, a new innovative solution that provides the flexibility required to meet the needs of all manner of healthcare organizations. Irrespective of size or availability of informatics or technical resources, Nomad helps healthcare organizations quickly and easily achieve syntactic and semantic interoperable exchange of their patient's health information," said Charlie Harp, Chief Executive Officer at Clinical Architecture. "Through Nomad we are providing software, infrastructure, and managed mapping services to enable nationwide interoperable health data exchange at scale."

Nomad differentiates itself by providing the following capabilities:

  • A Message Flow Engine that ensures the delivery of refined, normalized, and enriched patient information to consuming applications using the format and terminologies needed
  • Message transformations using FHIR, C-CDA, HL7 V2, X12, and OMOP formats
  • Managed mapping services of patient data to USCDI v2 by Clinical Architecture's informatics experts
  • The use of community-based algorithms and mapping libraries to ensure high mapping throughput and data consistency across maps
  • Out-of-the box support for most message format variations in standard formats like HL7, CDA/C-CDA, and FHIR
  • New format variations are addressed as needed by Clinical Architecture and, once validated, are added to the library of formats available to all clients
  • A fully scalable, secure, robust infrastructure hosted by Clinical Architecture using Amazon Web Services (AWS)
  • Flexible SaaS bundling options that enable organizations to pay for only the options and transaction volumes that they need
  • Valuable add-on options such as message consolidation of multiple messages into a single output, de-duplication of merged messages, and format / clinical content validation to improve data fidelity for organizations that need these capabilities
