As the global pandemic presses on, healthcare providers are under increased pressure. Squeezed of resources and time, providers must share more data — faster — to meet reporting requirements and to comply with the CMS and ONC mandates.
To help alleviate this pressure, in Corepoint 7.4 we have introduced new features aimed at further improving ease-of-use and boosting efficiencies. The latest version of our #1 in KLAS integration engine enables users to deploy solutions faster while ensuring support for the evolving interoperability landscape and increasing demand for access to health information.
Web service communication plays a significant role in the interoperability landscape, fueled by the latest CMS and ONC rules as well as the growing adoption of the FHIR standard. In Corepoint 7.4 we have enhanced our web service capabilities to enable users to take advantage of API integrations, like FHIR, and comply with government regulations. These enhancements include better alerting and logging for web service calls, support for real-time responses, and easy management of REST messages with a new HTTP Type Tree.
As part of our ongoing commitment to incorporating advanced interoperability standards, Corepoint 7.4 features support for FHIR conformance statements. These statements are part of the overall conformance framework in FHIR and connect to all the detailed statements of functionality, such as StructureDefinitions and ValueSets. In 7.4, users can import a FHIR Capability Statement resource and surface it to the end-user who is creating a FHIR integration. By ingesting and displaying the trading partner’s FHIR capabilities, users can implement FHIR integrations faster with less rework, errors, and back-and-forth with trading partners.
The Corepoint 7.4 release marks an exciting evolution of the Configuration application by shedding its dependency on the runtime engine. For the first time, Configuration can be deployed in lower-spec development environments without Corepoint Integration Engine or SQL Server. When deployed standalone, Configuration works as a pure Integrated Development Environment (IDE Mode) and offers full interface development functionality, including Action List Tester. With the 7.4 release, we are paving the way for Configuration to enjoy more frequent feature roll outs, reduced installation effort, and lower upgrade risks.
As well as the major features, Corepoint 7.4 has a number of smaller improvements including:
. . . and more including the addition of SQL Server 2019 qualification, command line enrichment, and a right-click menu expansion.
