We have just released our latest and greatest healthcare integration product, the Message Broker Healthcare Connectivity Pack. In the last three years we have made huge steps forward in the healthcare integration space, indeed we have had four product releases in the last two years alone. This new release comes packed with a host of new features:
DICOM, the digital medical imaging standard, is now natively supported. It enables the integration of image archive systems (PACS) and imaging applications and also enables a broad range of high-value integration use cases such as pre-fetch on admission.
Analytics, the ability to glean clinical insight, is now made easy with integrated tooling that quickly and easily extracts meaningful information from a range of medical sources. These sources include clinical documents (C-CDA/CDA/CCD/HITSP), DICOM images, and HL7 v2 messages. Meaningful data from these sources can be filtered, captured and fed directly into downstream applications and data warehouses for healthcare intelligence applications.
HL7 data models that use the industry standard Data Format Description Language (DFDL), are included in support of the HL7 messaging standard. HL7 v2.3 through to the most recently approved HL7 v2.7 are provided in the pack. The graphical modeling tools bring a modern feel to HL7 data processing, provide excellent performance characteristics, and allow healthcare integrators to customize and develop healthcare integrations quickly and easily.
The ability to send IHE compatible Audit Trail and Node Authentication (ATNA) messages to an audit repository enables logging events across a healthcare network.
The new capabilities augment the existing capabilities of the Healthcare Connectivity Pack:
Ready-to-use connectivity and time saving patterns for healthcare providers who seek to integrate clinical applications based on HL7 v2.x.
Direct connectivity to bedside medical devices that includes patient monitors, infusion pumps, and more (the full list of medical devices is here).
Pattern-based healthcare focused development tooling - rapid integration without detailed knowledge of integration engines or enterprise service bus (ESB) technologies.
Healthcare-oriented, operational monitoring for connected clinical applications and devices.
I've posted some slides here which walk through the high level features now available.
