Optimizing Data Transfers For Any Health Ecosystem

Health systems, hospitals and physician practices invest and rely on resources from a wide array of vendors to facilitate critical clinical, administrative and operational workflows. IT leaders and managers are tasked with ensuring a reliable infrastructure to support operations in a way that upholds an organization's strategic plan.

As hospitals and clinical practices strive to provide the best possible care and achieve value-based care within a constantly changing landscape, it is imperative that the tools and technologies used to facilitate healthcare workflows and data exchanges are interoperable, rapid, reliable, secure, and scalable. However, employing solutions that meet these requirements has been historically challenging due to the selection of “best of breed” systems, which can become obstacles for achieving interoperability.

Through implementing a modern integration engine, like Iguana, to connect these disparate systems, hospitals and physician practices can easily streamline and share the right clinical and operational information with the right person at the right time, supporting the ultimate goal of higher quality patient care and improved healthcare outcomes.

Benefits for Hospitals

Connect Disparate Systems

Iguana is a vendor-agnostic platform, enabling improved data flow and timeliness by connecting to any system, working with any data type, and processing data more efficiently to ensure that healthcare providers have the right information at the right time.

IT teams can rapidly onboard new integrations to support new clinical, administrative or operational systems through repeatable templates and common libraries, reducing development overhead.

Improve Quality of Care

Digital interoperability across clinicians, systems, care units, and facilities has become more essential due to increasing complexities in healthcare.

In order to ensure quality care for patients, there is a need for more seamless interfaces among patients, families, and the growing number of clinicians seen across specialties.

Automating data exchange through Iguana supports clinical staff by providing complete, timely information as well as removes manual administrative tasks enabling care providers to focus on patient care.

Support High Volume, Mission Critical Systems

Hospitals and physician practices rely on Iguana for mission-critical data exchange between various systems and devices. Ensuring system uptime and data flow is key to their business and their patients.

Organisations can ensure uptime with architectural strategies such as disaster recovery and high availability with Iguana, however also need to have confidence that their integration engine provides reliability and performance for typical and peak traffic periods.

With Iguana you can process tens of millions of messages a day on very modest hardware, and utilize techniques to automate system connection management, error handling and trigger notifications.

Support Reporting Requirements

With a shift towards value-based care, healthcare organizations require an integration engine that can support reporting of performance metrics through data aggregation, consolidation and submission.

Large numbers of disparate EMRs can complicate information exchange; difference practices, hospitals and facilities all have different workflows.

Iguana helps to maximize reporting capabilities through providing the control and flexibility to collect, normalize and format the data required for report writing and submission. Templates can be customized for reporting purposes making reporting more manageable, efficient and easy to scale.

Fill Costly Information Gaps

There are always information gaps to be filled within health systems and hospital workflows. While new system implementations may fill certain gaps, they often create others.

Iguana can play a critical role in streamlining and preventing missing information required for common billing workflows such as eligibility checks, pre-approval processes and claim submissions. For instance, Iguana helps organizations automate and validate claim submissions, raising alerts for missing information that require correction prior to submission.

Iguana’s flexible nature makes it a perfect fit in filling these information gaps and helping organizations receive full reimbursements for services quickly, avoiding potentially lost revenue
