CDC conducts interoperability tests with Orion’s Rhapsody Integration Engine

Orion Health : 23 November, 2007  (New Product)
Orion Health has announced the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) have completed interoperability testing between Orion Health Rhapsody Integration Engine and the CDC's Public Health Information Network Message System (PHINMS).
The recognition of interoperability means that healthcare workers at facilities can be assured of message transport function when using Rhapsody Integration Engine to communicate health data to and from the CDC through the PHIN system for the purpose of improved public health research and response.

“Rhapsody enables health facilities to contribute to the national preparedness effort by streamlining and automating the process for messaging laboratory data into the PHIN disease surveillance system,” said Paul Viskovich , president of Orion Health North America.

“The CDC's recognition of Rhapsody as an approved interoperability solution further validates the importance of message brokers as a key component of the biosurveillance effort.”

The CDC Public Health Information Network (PHIN) is a national initiative to improve the capacity of public health to use and exchange information electronically by promoting the use of standards, defining functional and technical requirements. PHIN strives to improve public health by enhancing research and practice through best practices related to efficient, effective, and interoperable public health information systems

Local, State, and Federal public health professionals and organizations use the Public Health Information Network Messaging System, PHINMS, to rapidly and securely send sensitive health information over the Internet to other local, State, and Federal organizations as well as the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Information such as HIV records, pandemics, and bioterrorism can be text, graphics, or any other file type. PHINMS locks down the health information so patients are ensured public health organizations are protecting their privacy.
