In early 2017, Epic introduced the Epic App Orchard, which opened up their platform to developers to create apps that use SMART and FHIR technology to integrate into Epic. This is an evolution to the traditional quarterly update integration that Epic began offering a number of years earlier.

In developing Krames On FHIR, Krames’ Product Team conducted many interviews with existing clients to see what were their “pain points” and looked for suggestions to improve upon or eliminate those pain points. The Krames On FHIR results have been truly impressive:

Accurate & Relevant

The Krames clinical content team does continuous review of standards in clinical literature, guidelines, and best practices to keep our content current. As we look to develop content and maintain our existing content library, we ensure clinical accuracy by our team working in conjunction with our in-house research director and together we continually monitor over 180 guideline associations; which include organizations like AWHONN, ACOG, American Academy of Pediatrics, CDC, NIH, American Diabetes Association, American Academy of Emergency Medicine, just to name a few. Based on review we update content to reflect current standards – at three levels: 1. The first level is “Proactive”: Where all content is reviewed on a 24-month cycle 2.The second level is “Responsive”: All relevant content is reviewed when we’ve identified a change in standards 3.The third and final level is “Emerging”/new research: This is the real-time creation of new content describing emerging clinical issues (e.g. COVID-19, Vaping, ZIKA) Our process for content review includes: - Health content, including interactive or self-management tools and multimedia content, has two external medical reviews. - Health content enters its “first” medical review two (2) months prior to the expiration of the last review date and the medical review process - two medical reviews, one editorial review, QA, and translation - may take several months to complete. Dates of medical reviews are tracked and stored in the Krames UCR. Certain diseases and conditions that have ongoing medical research and frequent updates to treatment guidelines are medically reviewed more often, as an off-cycle review, to remain current with emerging standards of care. - Content is updated immediately, as an off-cycle update, when significant new medical knowledge or change(s) in medical guidelines occur, and when content errors (not spelling or grammar) are identified. - Two medical reviews are performed on health content. At least one of the medical reviewers is an expert or specialist in the area pertaining to the disease, condition, or topic under review. - Experts or specialists in the area pertaining to the disease, condition, or topic under review consist of physicians, advanced practice registered nurses (APRN), physician assistants (PA), and other clinicians with a specialty focus on the specific subject matter. - Our in-house clinical team finalizes the medical review process by validating each content review to ensure consistency and accuracy across our library.

What is accurate & relevant?
Content is accurate, in the best interest of the patient, and without commercial bias by provider, insurer, or supplier. Content is continuously updated to reflect the latest studies or findings, and reviewed by appropriate standards boards so patients feel confident in their decision-making. Content is relevant and pinpointed to meet a patient’s immediate needs.
