Receive a request for patient monitoring

You can use this API action if your organization provides any type of patient monitoring, whether via a device, app, or both. Typically, you can use this for: 

  • receiving an order from a provider for a device to monitor a patient; or
  • receiving an order from a provider for nursing or app monitoring.

Supported systems

You can receive messages like this with the Redox FHIR® API.

Talk to a Redoxer

It’s also possible to use the Redox Data Model API for this API action. Talk to a Redoxer to learn about your options if you want to use alternative integration methods.

Your connection's system can send messages with their own FHIR® or proprietary API or an HL7v2 feed.

Lightweight or detailed notification

Depending on your connection’s capabilities, you can opt in for lightweight or detailed notifications. 

Typically, a lightweight notification is a bare bones message that says “something is new” or “something has changed,” along with the relevant identifier (e.g, patient, visit #). Lightweight notifications generally trigger you to do something within your own workflow or to query for more information. 

On the other hand, a detailed notification means that you receive all the data about what’s new or what has changed. This might be useful if you need to persist all that data in your system to complete your own unique workflow.

The EHR system sends a notification whenever a new service request is created for your organization. To review technical specifications for this notification, refer to the Service Request Created schema.

How to respond to FHIR notifications

Upon receiving this type of message, you only need to respond with the relevant HTTP status code. After that, you decide what your system should do with the notification.
