Components include the Rhapsody Engine, Rhapsody Integrated Development Environment (IDE), Management Console, Rhapsody Dashboard, IHE Toolkit, and Rhapsody Messaging Toolkit.
The Rhapsody Engine (Engine) is the main messaging service of the Rhapsody product suite. It accepts messages from external systems, processes the messages within the Engine, and sends them to external systems.
Security is of primary concern and is built into every part of the product, with a view to safeguarding any protected health information that passes through the engine.
The Rhapsody Integrated Development Environment (Rhapsody IDE) is a Windows®-based application that provides a graphical user interface for rapidly creating and editing Rhapsody configurations. The Rhapsody IDE enables the interface designer to create, view and modify configurations in a graphical drag-and-drop environment.
The Management Console is a web-based application, designed to reduce time spent on day-to-day monitoring and management and provide troubleshooting.
It displays information on the system status and state of message processing in the Engine. The Management Console highlights problems such as system connections that are not operating and interfaces that are not keeping up with the required throughput.
Rhapsody Dashboard enables administrators to monitor multiple Engines deployed across development, test and production environments.
The Dashboard provides a real-time health status and alert function for Engines and links to the Management Console for more detailed information.
The IHE toolkit is an optional extra that can simplify the implementation of IHE profiles with patient registries and repositories.
The toolkit includes purpose-built Rhapsody components, sample configuration, and documentation.
The toolkit supports the following IHE profiles:
Mapping from virtually any format to another is easy with Rhapsody Messaging Toolkit. Simply drag a component from one pane (e.g., HL7®) to its equivalent in another pane (e.g., XML) and the code creating the map is automatically generated in a third pane.
