NEW YORK - Jan 08, 2018
Infor, a leading provider of industry-specific cloud applications, today announced the availability of the Infor Fast Healthcare Interoperability Resources (FHIR) Bridge. Part of the Infor Cloverleaf Integration Suite, Infor FHIR Bridge delivers a cost-effective solution for healthcare organizations to realize better healthcare delivery, care coordination, and patient engagement through digital transformation made possible with FHIR®, the standards framework from HL7®.
Infor FHIR Bridge, built on the power and flexibility of the Cloverleaf® Integration Engine, enables healthcare organizations to utilize their current legacy systems and investment to interoperate with FHIR solutions and drive digital innovation. The solution bridges the gap that exists between traditional clinical systems that usually communicate in HL7 v2 or CDA®, and the emerging FHIR based application ecosystem, using a growing library of prebuilt standards adapters. Not only does Infor FHIR Bridge help bridge the gaps in systems' standards support, but it also can address the anomalies and variances between systems that inevitably occur, even when they are using the same standard.
"Infor FHIR Bridge is an intelligent solution allowing us to consolidate data from disparate applications securely and in real-time. The biggest benefit is the reusability of the resources across multiple solutions resulting in timely development and deployment to our customers," said Mike Plesh, Director of Information Technology Integration Services, UNC Health Care.
Additionally, with Infor FHIR Bridge, providers will be able to greatly accelerate their ability to use FHIR the way that they choose rather than their EHR vendor's chosen apps or having to wait for costly and lengthy upgrades. It also greatly augments EHR systems' FHIR capabilities beyond the limited API support that they have today.
With Infor FHIR Bridge, healthcare organizations will be able to streamline care coordination by providing the information providers and patients need, and no more, thus eliminating receiving mass amounts of useless information through CDA documents.
"Infor understands that the need to share information across multiple platforms is paramount to achieving an interoperable infrastructure at health systems across the country," said Mark Weber, senior vice president, Healthcare, Infor. "We continue to innovate and invest in the Cloverleaf suite so our customers can continue to keep their focus on the patient, and ultimately provide safer, more effective care."
