In 2008, Huntington Memorial Hospital (Huntington Hospital), a not-for-profit community hospital in Pasadena, California, realized that it needed a modern, scalable integration engine to support and connect its various health information systems and applications. After an extensive review of solutions available in the market, Huntington Hospital decided to implement Rhapsody to power its health information exchange (HIE) initiatives and support the hospital’s mission to more efficiently utilize resources.
An Integration Challenge
From 2004 through 2014, Huntington Hospital leveraged MEDITECH as its EMR system and needed a single integration engine to connect its disparate health information systems and applications. Unfortunately, a custom, point-to-point solution would be very expensive to build, prone to connectivity issues, and may also limit flexibility in the future. Huntington Hospital also would have needed to create a full team dedicated to identifying and resolving technical integration challenges, a time-consuming and costly issue.
