Concord Hospital, a regional medical center, and one of the busiest acute care hospitals in the State of New Hampshire, has selected the Orion Health™ Rhapsody® Integration Engine to supplement and eventually replace their current solution, Sun Microsystems eGate. Rhapsody will serve as the hospital’s new and advanced platform to migrate, manage, and streamline message exchange for their new Health Information System (HIS).
Chris Baker, Director of Application Development at Concord Hospital, states, “We were looking for an innovative technology solution that would not only work with our short-term goal of implementing a new Electronic Medical Record (EMR), but also meet our long-term goal of serving as an application development tool to integrate various databases into our overall HIS.”
Rhapsody offers a flexible system that is expected to manage up to 200,000 messages per day for Concord Hospital and presents an easy migration path from existing integration engines.
“Because we will be moving from eGate, the migration path was especially important and the migration toolkit that converts eGate code into Rhapsody was another important factor in our decision,” continued Baker.
Orion Health President of North America and EMEA, Paul Viskovich, “Concord Hospital is a classic example of an organization that is being proactive to make a purchase decision because a product would be sun-setting and turns that situation into an opportunity to build a platform for the future. By using standardized technology they not only improve efficiencies in how information is shared, but leverage a proven solution to extend and expand their investment and functionality their HIS can provide.”
Concord Hospital has been voted one of the Top 100 “Most Wired” hospitals 3 years running, and is continuously diligent in selecting and implementing technology that enhances quality, efficiency, and safety of patient care.
Orion Health solutions use standards-based technology to integrate data within a facility and external partners without incurring costly rip and replace approaches. Currently the company helps facilities and healthcare communities that connect 35 million patients with tens of thousands of active users.
