Unmatched Reach in Epic Systems

HealthConnect CoPilot provides healthcare development teams with a seamless integration solution for Epic EHR, catering to those aiming to link their products with healthcare providers.

Boasting the most extensive network of connections to health systems utilizing Epic EHR across the United States, HealthConnect CoPilot likely already interfaces with the healthcare system you wish to engage in.

Healthcare facilitates integration with Epic through the utilization of FHIR® API, HL7, and Epic’s proprietary API for the exchange of healthcare data. However, adherence to these standards does not guarantee uniformity across different instances of Epic or compatibility with other EHR systems like Cerner or Meditech utilized by your clientele.

Future-Proof Integration

By streamlining your Epic integration with HealthConnect CoPilot through consistent FHIR REST APIs, your product can seamlessly deliver features and functionalities to every customer without needing customization to accommodate each system's unique details.

HealthConnect CoPilot's cloud interoperability API bridges healthcare products with EHRs such as Epic. Beyond conventional industry standards like FHIR and HL7, Healthcare's methodology enhances control, fosters two-way communication, and mitigates marginal costs as your integration requirements expand.
