Orion Health Increases Health Interoperability With Latest Version of Rhapsody Integration Engine

Rhapsody 5 Features Real-Time Activity Stream and Simplified User Interface Design for Faster Monitoring and Management (May 09, 2012)

TORONTO, ONTARIO -- (Marketwire) -- 05/09/12 -- Orion Health, a leader in electronic health records (EHR) and healthcare integration solutions, today announced the availability of Orion Health(TM) Rhapsody?? Integration Engine version 5. Rhapsody provides complete interoperability among internal, regional and national health information systems through a large range of communication protocols and message formats in a simplified user interface design.

"Orion Health's Rhapsody Integration Engine is at the heart of OntarioMD's Hospital Report Manager product," said Brian Forster, CEO, OntarioMD. "As electronic medical records become more pervasive, it is important to be able to connect EMRs with other healthcare providers that need to securely share patient information. Rhapsody enables us to easily transform data available in different standards to be consumed by EMRs through a standard interface."

New features of Rhapsody 5 include an innovative monitoring system with an activity stream that presents messages and comments in real-time so that users can better monitor system status. The upgraded management console offers a dynamic interface and highly flexible monitoring capabilities. Users can instantly see activities taking place with information-rich views of historical activity, including log entries, notifications and user comments. This feature encourages team collaboration in a social media-like environment. The console also provides:

-- Personalized notification options enabling access to network information anytime, anywhere -- A watch list for grouping and scheduling notification tools to ensure important updates are remembered

Rhapsody boasts enhanced and simplified connected-network management tools including:

-- Streamlined message searching for faster troubleshooting -- Fully internationalized translatable monitoring interface and event logs -- LDAP authentication for unified user login

"We're impressed by the functionality and power of Rhapsody version 5," said Maxime Terrettaz, Interoperability Specialist, Bell Business Markets. "The new web console is intuitive, easy to use, and offers the real-time information, as well as the security we need to feel in control of our system."

The new Rhapsody Toolkit addresses the challenge of creating IHE-compliant integration between enterprises, resulting in fast, cost-effective interoperability between products and networks. The Toolkit offers organizations looking to connect to EHRs or regional networks the flexibility to meet present and future IHE implementation requirements.

"Orion Health is committed to improving Canada's healthcare system by delivering cost-effective and reliable integration software to leading EHRs, hospitals, and healthcare institutions across the country," said Gary Folker, Senior Vice President, Orion Health Canada. "Our solutions help physicians and clinicians manage critical healthcare challenges including chronic diseases with accuracy, reliability and speed. Rhapsody equips healthcare providers with the capacity to engage patients across the entire care continuum, enabling them to deliver improved care outcomes and long-term wellness while managing the cost of delivery."

Orion Health will be hosting its annual Rhapsody User Group event May 8-10, 2012 in Chicago, Illinois. Attendees will have the opportunity to participate, collaborate and accelerate their understanding of the product and learn how to add value to their clinical work environment.
