Looking to achieve interconnectivity with the help of HL7 interface manager applications? You’re not alone. Many healthcare organizations use different applications among their physicians, pharmacists, admin staff, and the billing department. It’s not uncommon for these applications to be developed and deployed to meet different needs over the organization’s lifetime.
However, in recent years, rapid digitization has occurred in healthcare organizations across the country, with almost all physicians now using EMRs to diagnose and treat patients. This has increased the need to exchange information electronically between disparate systems.
Achieving interconnectivity between these software platforms has resulted in the development of HL7 interface manager applications that seamlessly connect these apps. Since most platforms support the HL7 standards for sharing medical information, it is possible to join them to share information efficiently.
Investing in the development and use of high performing HL7 interface engines will deliver the following benefits:
1. Capacity for Total Connectivity
A robust interface engine will allow you to connect to any system, including popular EHRs like Epic, Cerner, Meditech, NextGen, Allscripts, AthenaHealth, Centricity, and many more. It will allow you to process data in any format, including HL7, FHIR, CCD, CDA, XML, JSON, and others. There will also be support for data, network, and Internet protocols such as database, file systems, TCP/IP, Https, FTPs, Restful APIs, and SOAP.
2. Fast Project Implementation
Your HL7 interface manager serves as an essential tool for creating multiple interoperability solutions in your organization. Using a well-designed interface manager will help you complete integration projects within a short time.
You and your team will use a consistent and predictable approach for all your development projects. This will eventually reduce the time needed to complete integrations, leaving you with more time to focus on other vital aspects of your operations.
3. Reliable and Scalable Development
Interface engines are designed to exchange information consistently without any downtime or glitches. Healthcare organizations exchange very critical, life-saving information daily, and there’s zero tolerance for system failures.
An interface engine must support as many interfaces as you need to exchange information within your organization. A high-performance engine can process more than 3,000 messages in a second without placing an excessive demand on your server hardware.
4. Feature-rich Interface Management
To deploy interfaces faster and easier, interface engines provide unique tools and features. These include:
- Interface deployment for rapid and secure deployment
- An interface for quick import and export of interfaces
- Dashboards for message activity monitoring
- A rich set of APIs for creating and administering interfaces
All these features are backed by maximum security features such as encryption for data, network, and activity logs.
