Charlottesville, Virginia (PRWEB) February 20, 2012
Meddius, the leading provider of healthcare integration appliances has announced the launch of the Integration Router Nano as the newest in its line of integration appliances available through the Meddius Integration Platform. The announcement was made today at the 2011 Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS) conference in Las Vegas, Nevada.
“Today’s integration challenges have moved beyond the four walls of the hospital to large distributed networks and communities of care,” says Ryan Sean Adams, Vice President of Sales at Meddius. “The edge points of these integration networks are locations like physician offices and long-term care facilities running IT infrastructure from the storage closest or in the cloud. To reliably integrate these edge points, we needed an appliance that can be deployed anywhere the data lives: in a reception area, an exam room, or under a desk.”
The Integration Router Nano is a small-form factor integration appliance designed for non-acute care environments. Fully installed in minutes, the Nano arrives pre-configured to integrate with popular practice management systems (PMS’s) and electronic medical records (EMR’s) found in physician offices. Once deployed, the Nano establishes a HIPPA-compliant tunnel to exchange electronic protected health information (ePHI) to third-parties and health systems. Organizations may use Nanos in tandem with acute-care Integration Routers to create a wide area integration network for acute and non-acute care systems.
“Our Integration Routers have allowed us to build some of the largest distributed integration networks in the healthcare industry. The Nano represents the next phase of healthcare integration, giving our partners the ability to integrate with systems across the continuum of care,” says Adams. “Before the cost savings of accountable care models can be realized, health systems need to extend their integration capabilities to all health providers in their community. Non-acute care integration is a cornerstone investment for the new integrated care delivery models emerging under healthcare reform.”
The Nano is now available to health systems and independent solution vendors as a component of Meddius’ Integration as a Service, a service model that includes the management of an integration network and integration on-demand.
