Interoperability Software Leader to Disrupt Healthcare by Urging Executives to Think Small
CHICAGO, Illinois — December 1, 2014 — iNTERFACEWARE®, a software provider committed to simplifying healthcare integration, announced today at the RSNA Annual Meeting (booth #3373 South Hall A), the launch of an Executive Seminar Series entitled The Big Impact of Small Data.
While the healthcare industry is abuzz with Big Data, it is Small Data that has the largest opportunity to create immediate impact to the bottom line. Compared to its bigger cousin, Small Data is actionable and agile. It is about tapping into the data flowing through the various clinical and administrative systems, typically via the integration engine, and extracting the most relevant information for measuring KPIs.
Data – it’s everywhere and it’s a “big” deal.
While ‘Big Data’ is a catchy buzzword and continues to make the headlines, it’s really ‘Small Data’ that can have the bigger, more immediate impact.
Small data is targeted and can be quickly and easily actioned. For hospitals, this small data is already readily available, as data is being exchanged amongst clinical, administrative and operational systems through integration engines everyday.
The ability to collect, analyze and use Small Data has helped our hospital clients to maintain and grow their profitability, evaluate operational quality measures and meet Meaningful Use objectives.
We believe in sharing this message beyond our customers, so we’ve put together a complimentary Executive Seminar Series called The Big Impact of Small Data.
This seminar series, intended for CIOs, CTOs and IT Directors, will feature success stories from hospital CIOs and explore how you can seize upon the potential of your small data to create dashboards to monitor your KPIs and increase efficiencies in your hospital.

Had a great time at Scripps Healthcare today in San Diego. We had a great turn out of people for the advanced Iguana workshop going through the Iguana Apps. Here’s a few pictures.
It was fun to see people getting the value of what these little apps offer. It’s all about seeding an ecosystem layer on top of Iguana that enables our users to tackle problems that were previously pretty difficult. Iguana is unique in that the engine is flexible enough that you can build these applications on top of it. It makes a big difference.
Each month, Art Harrison, VP of Marketing, attempts to answer a technical question or showcase an idea from IGUANA users using his own sense of humor, insight and homemade videos. He calls this series of videos “Art-full Integrations” and swears there’s nothing he can’t do or answer with IGUANA. Want to prove him wrong? Email us or comment below and we’ll see if you can stump Art.
Instead of answering a specific question this month, I’m about to let you in on a secret instead. I built the first ever IGUANA app!
Sounds great, but why is it a secret?
Well, I didn’t exactly tell anyone on our development team (or the entire company for that matter) what I was up to. You could say I went “rogue” on this one.
We’re proud of our customers and think they do some pretty cool stuff. We’ll be featuring them here so that everyone else can learn their stories. Without further ado here’s the latest customer spotlight.
I sat down with Frederic Boyer, Head of IT & Development, from Canadian tech company, Logi-D to find out all about their business.
How did Logi-D begin?
We began as TRIAX Consulting, a consulting group that specialized in healthcare logistics. We soon realized that some point-of-use logistics practices weren’t readily available to our clients. We saw how the healthcare industry could benefit from industrial supply chain practices so we adapted them to the hospital environment.
Because some of these practices leveraged software and technology, Logi-D filled the gap by becoming a hospital logistics solutions integrator, providing turnkey technology solutions to its clients.
What does Logi-D do?
Logi-D specializes in hospital and healthcare-specific point-of-use supply chain automation technologies known as the iD-SUITE.
Canadian integration engine company offers free solution to help healthcare providers exchange data with the state immunization registry.
TORONTO, May 20, 2014 – iNTERFACEWARE®, a software provider committed to simplifying healthcare integration, today announced the launch of an initiative to assist healthcare providers in the state of California fulfill the Meaningful Use Stage 2 requirement of immunization data exchange.
iNTERFACEWARE will be hosting a workshop from 11am to 2pm on June 18th at Hotel Palomar in Los Angeles to demonstrate their working solution that enables providers to successfully exchange data with the California Immunization Registry (CAIR). The workshop is being offered free of charge with a catered lunch and is open to the public. To register for the workshop, visit the CAIR workshop registration page.
Do You Need To Exchange Data With The California Immunization Registry (CAIR)?
When we learned that many healthcare providers in the state of California were struggling to meet the stage 2 meaningful use requirement of immunization data exchange, we knew that through the use of the IGUANA integration platform, we could help make a difference. So, we’ve put together our own meaningful use CAIR package and are making it available free of charge to the public.
What does the package entail?
- A tested and working module to exchange data with CAIR.
- Free IGUANA licensing required to use the module.
- A free workshop in Los Angeles to demonstrate the module.
