FHIR and 1upHealth have partnered to launch SQL on FHIR, a new product application providing healthcare organizations with timely access to their data to discover insights and create compelling visualizations. Data teams do not need to know how to code in FHIR (fast healthcare interoperability resources) with SQL (structured query language). 1upHealth’s SQL on FHIR lets you use familiar SQL-based tools, such as Tableau and Power BI, with little effort.

Joe Gagnon, CEO of 1upHealth, said, “Our customers have turned to 1upHealth to help them figure out ‘what’s next’ in their journey to leverage their healthcare data. After we help them clear one of the biggest challenges — converting legacy claims and clinical data into clean, uniform FHIR — the next hurdle is to make that comprehensive data available and computable, in a timely way, so customers can act on it.”

SQL analysis of FHIR data requires the use of special preparation methods. As a result, customers can easily search for specific information such as patient observations, vital signs, smoking status, or the end or start of their insurance coverage by using the 1upHealth SQL on FHIR application. With analytic use cases available like utilization management, quality measurements, network design, risk adjustment, or event-driven needs, a full range of analytic use cases can be explored.

OneUpHealth is a cloud-based integrated payer-provider data platform that is built on FHIR® and can provide wide-scale interoperability across a network of more than 10,000 clinical and payer endpoints. A scalable, serverless environment underpins the 1upHealth modern data architecture, which allows healthcare providers to access, store, analyze, and share data using the latest technologies.
