Rhapsody is an industry-leading interoperability platform that enhances healthcare ecosystems through seamless connectivity to unlock the potential of data, on-premises and in the cloud.
Rhapsody is our foundation product, the on-premise enabler that brings systems together through seamless data integration. It is a proven, high-performing integration engine—with built-in FHIR capabilities—for robust and reliable acquisition and exchange of health data.
Rhapsody is a healthcare-focused interoperability platform utilized by public and private hospitals, health systems, Health Information Exchanges, vendors, public health departments and federal government organizations. The interoperability platform is represented globally with customers in 36 countries.
It has support for all healthcare message formats and standards, which include HL7 (v2 and v3), HL7® FHIR®, CCDA, NCPDP, X12, IHE, DICOM, XML, binary, delimited and legacy formats.
Rhapsody is a multi-platform interoperability platform supporting Windows®, Linux, and AIX® operating systems. It is a reliable and robust engine that can be configured for maximum availability. Security is of primary concern, and is built into every part of the product, with a view to safeguarding any protected health information (PHI) that passes through the engine.
Designed for speed, Rhapsody is a scalable platform with the ability to process over 3,500 straight-through messages per second on a standard Intel® server. Rhapsody now processes more than a billion messages per day globally.
Configuring new interfaces can be done quickly with optimized user workflow as well as drag-and-drop capabilities.
Rhapsody has a number of tools and features to make migrating from a legacy integration engine easier. Its Intelligent Mapper reduces the time and cost of migration by performing analysis of legacy engines and reverse engineering of rules, documentation and code generation. Intelligent mapping ensures data quality and cuts the time of traditional migration and conversion, reducing cost and risk while increasing continuity of performance.
“(Rhapsody) met our needs without us having to invest in local infrastructure, on-premise resources, and did not slow us down.”
All the On-Premises features, plus:
MGH has been a MEDITECH EHR client since 2003, and in 2008 the organization realized they needed to expand their number of interfaces to connect to other vendors' systems. Initially they added individual interfaces through the EHR system, but it was a costly process so MGH decided to go to market to find an interoperability solution...
UAB Health System had a legacy integration engine that had been deprecated by the vendor and was not receiving upgrades or support. This forced the UAB Health System to go to market to find a replacement that is intuitive and easy to use to allow for quick migration and upskilling of users.
Before the RWJBarnabas Health merger began, both Robert Wood Johnson Health System and Barnabas Health independently chose Rhapsody to replace their legacy systems. In the case of Barnabas Health, the network had been utilizing a legacy eGate integration engine before deciding to put a request for proposal (RFP) to the market.
“Rhapsody is one of the best integration solutions out there.”
