is designed to build trust and increase engagement between healthcare and social service organizations, and the individuals they serve.
ShareApprove allows individuals to receive, sign, send, and revoke consent authorizations for the use and sharing of personal information, for numerous purposes related to healthcare and social support services.
Organizations offering ShareApprove to their patients or clients can customize consent and authorization forms to the needs of their organization and trigger a consent request to be sent from an EHR, care management solution, or other information technology system to the individual enrolled in ShareApprove. Digitally-signed consent forms can be downloaded as printable PDFs, and ShareApprove will ensure the fidelity of the consent transaction, notifying all parties if consent is revoked, and sending reminders when a consent is nearing expiration.
ShareApprove streamlines communication through a secure, user-friendly smartphone or web-enabled app for individual users, and an integrated administrative portal for organizations offering ShareApprove to the individuals they serve.
Individuals are able to manage their preferences for allowing personal information to be shared or viewed, reducing liability for organizations providing care or services, and reducing risk that personal data will be unintentionally exposed or misused.
Administrative users can access search functions; manage role-based user access; customize forms, surveys, and other communication messages to individual users; and view dashboards of data collected from attributed populations through the app (coming in early 2021).
ShareApprove’s bi-directional communication platform will create efficiencies in many business operations, while engaging and building trust with patients and clients.
When ShareApprove is offered by a statewide, regional, or community data exchange organization with a clinical data repository or data lake, participating healthcare organizations (health systems, academic medical centers, cancer centers, etc.) can maximize the use of these data troves by requesting patients provide consent to be notified when their demographic and clinical profile may align with a research study. Bi-directional communication then allows a researcher, research assistant, and/or an authorized staff member of a participating clinic in a trial to learn more about potential cohorts through customized questionnaires before scheduling an appointment.
Research teams will also have the ShareApprove tool to engage more easily with cohorts as a trial is underway.
ShareApprove provides value to healthcare providers participating in value-based payment models by increasing engagement and care coordination opportunities for high need/high cost patients, and by improving patient-to-provider attribution for accurate quality measurement.
