The Co-Creation Lab is a Rhapsody enterprise that presents healthcare organizations an opportunity to collaborate with the company to create innovative solutions tailored to their specific needs.
The lab is a design environment where Rhapsody and its partners converge to develop, prototype and operationalize solutions addressing persistent and emerging interoperability issues. This allows organizations to benefit from Rhapsody’s extensive development capabilities and integration knowledge, while helping Rhapsody to meet the diverse and evolving needs of Healthcare IT.
Interoperability is at the of heart Rhapsody’s mission and the Co-Creation Lab personifies that ethos by connecting to customers through human centered collaboration and a focus on design-driven thinking.
The Lab’s co-creations improve services, functionality and Rhapsody product offerings by engaging partners in real-world problem-solving. These innovative solutions offer a granular perspective that may be missing from major product releases and aim to address industry-wide issues on a more macro level.
By aligning Rhapsody with healthcare companies and their information sharing stakeholders, the Co-Creation Lab’s streamlined method facilitates faster development cycles. Solutions can move efficiently through the design thinking process — empathizing, defining, ideating, prototyping and testing — to arrive at the right solution.
The Co-Creation Lab leverages Rhapsody two decades of experience and expertise in healthcare integration, informatics and interoperability. The Lab combines industry leading development and solutions teams with subject matter experts to arrive at high-quality, high-value innovative solutions.
The project took a ‘design thinking’ approach. We started by looking to discover who our users were and what they needed to know. These users included not only our customer-facing representatives, but also customers, including CTOs, developers and analysts, integration managers, and support staff. What do they need to know? What do they need to do?
This co-creation project has produced three interfaces that quickly and easily integrate the two solutions to promote interoperability and improve patient outcomes by ensuring alerts and clinical information is intelligently delivered in real time.
