Our government and large enterprise clients will appreciate the performance improvements which have enhanced performance at sites integrating data from hundreds of different sources
Santa Monica, CA (PRWEB) October 10, 2006
Orion Health, a leading provider of clinical workflow and integration technology for the healthcare sector, announces the immediate availability of Rhapsody™ Integration Engine version 2.4. Performance tuning has made aspects of the award-winning solution up to 12 times faster. Interface improvements have also been made to increase the accessibility of help features and ease configuration and documentation needs for administrators.
New features allow interface developers faster access to the dynamic help and allow common interfaces to be set up based on previous copies, saving time in repetitive configuration tasks. Changes to the layout of interfaces, and new ways of finding components make tasks easier and increase productivity.
Rhapsody Integration Engine is being used to help transmit and integrate data from laboratories across the United States to help track diseases in humans and animals for the rapid detection and response to outbreaks.
“The new Rhapsody 2.4 is particularly important to the work we do here at CDC Data and Message Brokering (DMB),” said Vic Nwadiogbu, architect and lead developer at CDC Data and Message Brokering, Northrop Grumman IT Health Solutions.
“I am really happy with the work Orion Health developers, in collaboration with the CDC DMB developers, have done to further optimize this product to handle the high volume of data going through CDC DMB daily.”
Rhapsody Integration Engine recently achieved high performance HL7 messaging throughput of 1.36 million messages per hour on an IBM P Series p570 high performance machine at IBM’s Innovation Centre, Sydney, Australia and Dell’s Texas laboratory.
“Our government and large enterprise clients will appreciate the performance improvements which have enhanced performance at sites integrating data from hundreds of different sources,” said Paul de Bazin, Rhapsody General Manager at Orion Health.
“Interface developers, on the other hand will really appreciate the usability improvements that will save them time and just make the process of building new interfaces easier.”
Worldwide, Orion Health is implementing health information communities involving over 35 million patients with tens of thousands of active users.
