Rioja deploys Tibco’s real-time integration infrastructure to support patient management

Tibco Software : 02 July, 2008  (Application Story)
The Spanish region of Rioja’s health administration service has deployed Tibco Software’s real-time integration infrastructure.
The project at Servicio Riojano de Salud (SERIS) will link together a range of applications to provide more efficient services for patients and support the opening of the new Hospital San Pedro.

Jose Lorenzo, director of IT programmes at SERIS, said: 'Tibco provides a good fit for our IT environment. It is extremely flexible and functionally rich. We also had the assurance that using Tibco technology we could meet our rigid deadline for the opening of the San Pedro hospital, something we felt we could not have been so certain of with another supplier.'

Tibco ActiveMatrix BusinessWorks and Tibco Enterprise Message Service were chosen for the project because of their proven ability to work with applications in a heterogeneous environment. In addition, the range of adaptors offered by Tibco outshone those from rival vendors on the SERIS shortlist. The administrator is in the final stages of testing BusinessWorks against the HL7 healthcare interoperability standard, which SERIS said would save it significant time and cost in development.

The company expects to gain benefits in three major areas from its adoption of Tibco as its integration standard: resolving any outstanding synchronisation issues with multi-platform applications; reducing development time mapping data formats between different applications; and allowing staff to develop interfaces much more easily. The real-time infrastructure will also provide a more efficient service for patients from the moment they try to make an appointment to when they are checking out.

'In the Healthcare industry, heterogeneity of IT systems is a given, so platform independence and interoperability is absolutely key, said, Fabio Pulidori, senior vice president, EMEA for Tibco Software. 'From the simple process of updating patient records to the doctor checking with the pharmacy whether a particular medication is available, it all needs to work seamlessly. We're proud to be supporting the great work in Spain and the recent opening of the region's new hospital.'
