1,000 Healthcare Organizations.
Unprecedented Trust.

hr hr hr

For the past 3 ½ years NewWave has supported the CMS mission to deliver the Blue Button 2.0 API that provides health information for 53M Medicare beneficiaries.

NewWave through our HealthAPT partnership provided the team that constructed the data pipeline and FHIR platform that stores 12 billion records securely in the cloud from where beneficiaries can authorize the applications and services they trust.

The overall design of the Blue Button 2.0 API was created by our own Entrepreneur-In-Residence and CMS Blue Button Innovator, Mark Scrimshire. As the first person on the Blue Button 2.0 project, Mark built the original Proof of Concept, established the secure authorization methods based on the OAuth2.0, a first for CMS. He continues to promote the Blue Button 2.0 API to health care organizations across the industry and nurtures the growing community of more than 1,000 organizations that are working with the API.

But the work with Blue Button 2.0 has not stopped there. Mark and the NewWave team are active in the CARIN Alliance, a collaboration of leading health and consumer organizations that have been working on developing an update to the Blue Button 2.0 API Implementation Guide using the latest version of HL7 FHIR. This guide is set to become the guide that health plans across the industry follow to deliver the ability for their members to share their health information with consumer applications they trust such as NewWave’s own MyCareAI.
