TORONTO, June 7 -- iNTERFACEWARE™, a software provider committed to simplifying HL7 integration, today announced the general availability of Iguana™ v5, the latest version of its powerful healthcare integration engine. Iguana is the first product specifically designed to enable healthcare organizations to exchange data residing across any standard, including HL7, X12, XML and JSON and cloud-based applications. As a result, organizations can reduce their dependency on legacy healthcare systems, embrace new web services applications and connect to wider networks.
Most healthcare networks rely on legacy systems to exchange information. With more enterprises shifting toward cloud and web-based models to support applications such as e-prescribing, reduce healthcare costs and improve patient safety, legacy hospital systems are unable to transition to new applications beyond HL7. To remain competitive and keep healthcare costs down, it is critical that healthcare organizations are able to share information across disparate systems using modern integration engines .With Iguana, organizations can seamlessly integrate with older systems and experience the convenience and cost savings of cloud-based applications using a single web-based interface.
"With the rise in the adoption of cloud and web services, our customers are looking for solutions that are interoperable with these modern applications," said Eliot Muir, CEO, iNTERFACEWARE. "However, most hospitals and healthcare organizations are still using outdated integration engines that are not equipped to handle newer standards and technologies. Iguana v5 enables our customers to comply with HL7 as well as emerging standards, helping streamline operations, share data quickly and efficiently, and thereby improving overall patient care."
"Since MD-Staff is a cloud-based platform for credentialing, privileging and Ongoing Professional Practice Evaluation/ Focused Professional Practice Evaluation (OPPE/FPPE) software, it is important that MD-Staff can easily integrate and share information with diverse systems," said Nick Phan, vice president and chief software architect, Applied Statistics & Management, Inc. "With Iguana v5, we can integrate with nearly any healthcare system, create new interfaces in minutes and drastically reduce our implementation times. As a result, our clients can rapidly achieve their credentialing, privileging and OPPE/FPPE goals while helping to enhance patient safety, improve overall performance and reduce costs."
