Many hospital and health systems are being faced with major decisions and challenges concerning interface engine conversion and migration due to DataGate/eGate and eBiz hitting the end-of-life mark. Interface engines are responsible for the critical flow and orchestration of financial, administrative, and clinical data. Disrupting that data flow takes a high level of project organization. Even if an organization is not being forced to replace their interface engine due [...]

What is an HL7 specification?

HL7 specification standards

 No matter how many interfaces you are integrating, a critical step is the definition of your HL7 interface specifications.

A formal definition from HL7 International in the v2.5 standard definition states:

“An HL7 message profile (or HL7 specification) is an unambiguous specification of one or more standard HL7 messages that have been analyzed for a particular use case. It prescribes a set of precise constraints upon one or more standard HL7 messages.”

In other words, HL7 [...]

Migration Guide: From Oracle eGate to Orion Health Rhapsody Interface Engine

By jeanluc.morin@caristix.com | Published: February 9th, 2015

The interface engines now in place are responsible for the critical flow and orchestration of financial, administrative, and clinical data. Disrupting current critical data flow to take on a migration project is challenging.  And the [...]

By margo.ellis@caristix.com | Published: December 10th, 2014

New interface selection: a big decision

Is your team selecting a new interface engine? If so, you’re in good company. With DataGate/eGate and eBiz at the end-of-life mark, many hospitals and health systems are faced with major conversion and migration decisions. The engines they have in place now are responsible for the flow and orchestration of financial, administrative, and clinical data. They can’t afford to disrupt their current capabilities. And the smartest organizations are working to expand their interoperability.

This leaves hospitals [...]
