Healthcare Interfacing Challenges
Seattle Radiologists needed a stable integration platform that would enable them to integrate disparate applications within their IT infrastructure and eliminate costly point-to-point connections. In addition, they required more control and better monitoring capabilities over their entire integrated environment enabling them implement interfaces within their timelines and proactively monitor and address any connection issues in the orders-to-results cycle. Reading for a large group of referring hospitals posed a need for efficient and connectivity with varying hospital EMR or systems to eliminate manual steps and automate data exchanges.
To surmount the challenges of a point-to-point application environment and manual processes that hindered productivity, Seattle Radiologists implemented Corepoint Integration Engine.
