Orion prepares Rhapsody for PCEHR

Orion Health has released version 5 of its Rhapsody integration engine, which includes new standards to support connections to the PCEHR.

Additions to v5 include native clinical document architecture (CDA) support including translation to and from HL7 2.x, and IHE cross-enterprise document sharing (XDS.b) support, which is required for document exchange to the national PCEHR infrastructure.

Orion Health is currently awaiting its certificate of compliance under the National E-Health Transition Authority's (NEHTA) Compliance, Conformance and Accreditation (CCA) program, but has already added the ability to search the Healthcare Identifiers Service.

Auckland-based Orion, which recently won the supreme award at the 2012 New Zealand International Business Awards, is the key software vendor in the national infrastructure partner consortium building the PCEHR.

Orion Health said major enhancements in version 5 include a new monitoring system that provides highly flexible and intelligent monitoring capabilities, giving administrators awareness and control of their connected network.

It also features improved personalised notification options that give anywhere/anytime access to network information, scheduling tools to ensure important updates are received by the right person at the right time, and real-time activity streams, which let users see instantly what is currently occurring with each component, along with an information-rich view of historical activity.

Orion said of the 120 new improvements, other notable features include Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) integration for unified user login, streamlined message searching for faster troubleshooting, and fully internationalised translatable monitoring interface and event logs.

Orion Health CEO Ian McCrae said integration engines such as Rhapsody will allow organisations to easily connect to the PCEHR.

“Over time the PCEHR will provide many benefits for both healthcare providers and consumers,” Mr McCrae said.

“We look forward to working with organisations not only to contribute to the PCEHR, but also to allow them to easily view records in their clinical workflow. The national infrastructure go-live represents the beginning of this exciting journey.”
