SUNNYVALE, Calif., April 16, 2020 -- Health Gorilla, a leader in clinical data interoperability, today announced the launch of a no-cost clinical record retrieval tool, available to any healthcare provider during the COVID-19 crisis. Through Health Gorilla’s participation in Carequality and CommonWell Health Alliance, providers can use Health Gorilla’s web application to query for their patient’s medical records from a vast network of over 60,000 care sites across the country. Healthcare providers can sign up for free at healthgorilla.com to use the service.
“As COVID-19 cases continue to rise, it is absolutely imperative for providers to have the full scope of clinical data at their fingertips to provide the most appropriate and informed care for COVID-19 patients,” said Steve Yaskin, Co-founder and CEO of Health Gorilla. “With CommonWell and Carequality, we’re making clinical record retrieval available through our portal for free for any healthcare provider delivering COVID-19 care.”
“We are all deeply aware of the stress that the COVID-19 pandemic is putting on our healthcare system,” said Dave Cassel, Executive Director of Carequality. “Recognizing the need for patient information to flow seamlessly during this crisis, we’re eager to ensure that as many clinicians as possible are able to take advantage of the nationwide connectivity the Carequality Framework provides.”
“Information is power, and CommonWell was created to empower providers and patients with easy access to health data,” said Paul L. Wilder, CommonWell Health Alliance executive director. “We are proud that the data available on our network is enabling other Health IT companies to inform those on the front lines of the COVID-19 crisis.”
Health Gorilla previously announced free access to its lab ordering platform, where providers can place electronic orders for COVID-19 tests to national and regional diagnostic vendors. Any healthcare provider who uses Health Gorilla’s web application, a Health Gorilla-partnered developer, or a Health Gorilla-integrated EMR can access this functionality immediately.
