Integrating data into diverse set of systems
The initial challenge BioIntelliSense faced was
integrating JSON device data into Epic via HL7
for a leading healthcare system in Colorado.
“We needed a technology partner who understood
the regulated medical device industry and could
meet a diverse set of data integration requirements,”
said Mike Hawn, SVP Data Services & Product
Solutions for BioIntelliSense.
After evaluating integration solutions, BioIntelliSense selected the fully managed cloud-based interoperability solution from Rhapsody. “We wanted a cloud-based option and a fully managed service — a partner who knew health integration, so our engineers could focus on one pipe and one protocol to get data to the integration engine, and then trust that service to securely share the data downstream with our clients,” Hawn said.
Additionally, BioIntelliSense required a technology
partner who could keep pace with their growth and
integrate with a diverse set of enterprise systems,
including EHR systems, RPM applications, telehealth
solutions, and clinical trial platforms.
“We occasionally encounter clients or partners with limited integration resources and systems that rely on data exchange that is FTP-based,” Hawn explained. “To have Rhapsody pull up a comma delimited file, massage it, and hit our JSON APIs, without any engineers having to be involved on our side, is very efficient.”
