From integration to interoperability, to true data liquidity.

Originally developed in New Zealand almost 20 years ago, Rhapsody has grown into one of the most proven, stable and reliable interoperability platforms in healthcare today. As of November 2018, Rhapsody has become an independent company, solely focused on interoperability and partnering with our customers to co-develop solutions to achieve true data liquidity.

We are proud to present our Executive Leadership Team, which combines industry expertise with Rhapsody’s long-standing technical leadership, and are happy to retain all of the critical development talent responsible for Rhapsody's core technology.

From the Rhapsody engineer who wrote the first lines of code almost two decades ago to the young team responsible for taking Rhapsody to the cloud last year, the strong development teams behind the interoperability platform will play an integral role in leading Rhapsody into the future.

We will be sharing more about our development plans soon but before then, please contact us below to talk about how we can work together to improve care, through greater connectivity and real data liquidity.

We look forward to hearing from you!
