Our selection was based on performance and reliability and, importantly, ease of use. The installation was completed within a week and provided us with the ability to securely and reliably communicate between all of our clinical and management systems
Auckland, NZ (PRWEB) June 5, 2009
Orion Health, a leading provider of clinical workflow and integration technology for the health care sector world-wide, has signed a contract with prestigious Harley Street based clinic - The London Clinic. The contract marks the world's first live site of the company's latest Rhapsody™ 3.3 Integration Engine.
The Rhapsody Integration Engine now connects all existing administrative and clinical information systems in use at the hospital.
According to Orion Health CEO Ian McCrae, Rhapsody will help hospitals like The London Clinic achieve their immediate messaging integration goals, as well as preparing for future health information sharing, using HL7 compliant messaging to map and exchange messages between disparate information systems.
"The software has been designed specifically with two main considerations, scalability and performance. This major service release brings new features for interface development and administration as well as providing critical foundation support for projected future development", said Mr. McCrae.
As a fully equipped acute hospital with 202 beds and twelve operating theatres, The London Clinic has established its prestigious, international reputation in private healthcare, by investing in staff, growth and innovation. The development of a £70M cancer centre and recent expansion of the ICU to accommodate liver transplants is widening the number of complex procedures that the clinic undertakes.
Mike Roberts, The London Clinic's IT Director, said they chose Rhapsody after an exhaustive tendering system.
"Our selection was based on performance and reliability and, importantly, ease of use. The installation was completed within a week and provided us with the ability to securely and reliably communicate between all of our clinical and management systems," he said.
"The London Clinic's strategy is to provide consultants with a comprehensive e-Health environment and Rhapsody is a critical part of the technical solution."
