Frisco, Texas – Feb. 01, 2012 – Corepoint Integration Engine successfully completed testing in six Integrating the Healthcare Enterprise () profiles at the 2012 North American IHE Connectathon in Chicago.
IHE Connectathon tests demonstrated Corepoint Health’s readiness to help hospitals, radiology practices, and other healthcare providers connect to and support Health Information Exchanges (HIEs). The six profiles passed are critical pieces to the electronic exchange of important clinical information, a key element of the federal Meaningful Use initiative.
Corepoint Integration Engine tested a set of profiles that are commonly utilized for connectivity. Profiles tested included:
"This exciting achievement is another example of Corepoint Health helping customers meet health IT demands, which are constantly evolving," said Corepoint Health CEO Phil Guy. "IHE Connectathon offers us an environment to showcase Corepoint Integration Engine's exchange capabilities for the growing number of our customers who are connecting outside their four walls to an HIE or to the referring physician community. Working closely with our dedicated customers has allowed us to build a high performing healthcare integration engine that excels at providing true interoperability.”
IHE Connectathon is the healthcare IT industry's largest interoperability testing event and demonstrates how applications can work together to meet interoperability requirements outlined in Meaningful Use expectations. IHE Integration Profiles are based on existing healthcare IT standards and provide a programming framework from which organizations can exchange health information.
