Application Integration

The convergence of digital information and increasing regulation will create significant challenges for healthcare organizations for the foreseeable future. At the same time, many healthcare organizations have multiple databases that are not integrated. Databases can contain patient data, financial transactions, clinical results, physician notes and insurance documentation. Often this data is difficult to merge because of quality, un-related key fields, fluctuations in even times and proprietary applications. As a result, healthcare organizations have an abundance of data but lack a comprehensive understanding of critical information.

If your organization struggles with interpreting conflicting data generated by different application systems, then you can benefit from Healthbox IT Application Integration Services. Healthbox IT solves this dilemma by merging data sources from different applications into a comprehensive data warehouse. Our database design team members are experts at diving deep into data sources and understanding where the information originates and how to interpret the results in a clear and concise report. Executives, managers and users seeking a solution to these problems benefit from our database expertise in unraveling the complexities and creating robust solutions that meet these continuing needs.

HL7 Implementation

Healthbox IT can assist healthcare organizations implement Health Level Seven International (HL7) standards. These standards are in place because healthcare provider organizations must adhere to numerous governmental regulations for patient privacy and patient data security. Laws covering patient confidentially, HIPAA and the HITECH Act impose significant requirements on healthcare covered entities, business associates and vendors of personal health records to protect healthcare information.

Healthbox IT understands the needs of organizations that require information and applications to share secure data. Applications that access patient databases and need to share critical data while maintaining security and confidentiality should be based upon HL7 standards. These standards were created for the interoperability of health information between applications and medical devices. HL7 standards cannot stop a security breach, but their implementation will provide for data encryption of patient records. We understand how to develop applications that share patient data or exchange data between medical devices and integrate multiple vendors software applications. Healthbox IT has HL7 trained developers that can work with your team to implement a secure data exchange protocol.
