EHR Integrations

LifeOmic provides the ability to connect your EHR (Electronic Health Record) system to the PHC for automatic ingestion.

High-level Ingestion Flow

Scheduled Ingestion Flow

API Models

Below are the API models used to achieve this EHR ingestion flow.

Entities

EHR: Represents the metadata needed for the PHC to:

  • Authenticate with an EHR

  • Download data during an ingestion

  • Transform the data to FHIR (based on ehrType)

Connector: Represents a connection to a PHC project which should receive data ingested from the EHR

Ingestion: Represents the synchronization of data from the EHR into the PHC

Scheduled-Ingestion: Allows for scheduling an ingestion (such as every day)

See the EHR API documentation for more info.
