A Middleware Dose: the Antidote to Healthcare’s EHR Interoperability Bug

Despite wide penetration of EHR's in hospitals, clinics and physician offices, access to patient information between systems continues to plaque our healthcare system. From a physician's perspective, we have a duty to provide the best care to addresses our patients’ health needs with the least possible risks of adverse events...Zoeticx, a developer of EHR middleware, has developed such a platform that has already been demonstrated to go far beyond the limitations present in EHR’s. Adding additional functionality to patient data has been accomplished with a seamless connection to disparate EHR systems. An additional benefit of this technology is that front-line providers no longer need to worry about accessing many different systems to manually utilize the data for patient care.

Can Providers Continue the Healthcare Continuum Without Medical Apps?

Healthcare applications face different challenges than their counterpart in consumer applications. They are not designed to replace providers or to improve the efficiency and scalability of providers. EMR and EHR systems have common characteristics with a database system, but they are designed for healthcare. In other words, healthcare needs its own stack. Healthcare middleware must address all the common services required to support application development. Having a set of APIs access EMR and EHR systems is the starting point, but not the complete solution. Messaging, workflow, rule engine services, and more must be part of a middleware solution. Its footprint must be lightweight and cost efficient so that it can be embedded with the applications. The real healthcare challenge is addressing the missing healthcare applications in support of a diverse care environment. Our efforts must align to inspire developers in addressing providers’ needs. It will be healthcare applications that will evolve healthcare to the next level.

Plug and Play Healthcare: Open Middleware and the Emergence of a Functional Interoperability Framework

“A middleware architecture has been shown to be the best technological solution for addressing the problem of EHR interoperability. The middleware platform facilitates the transparent, yet secure, access of patient health data, directly from the various databases where it is stored. A server-based middleware framework supporting access to the various patient health data stores allows for a scalable, unified and standardized platform for applications to be developed upon.  The middleware architectural design has been successfully used to link data from multiple databases, irrespective to the database platform or where the database is located,” says Voltz.

The Patient-Data Pipeline: The Missing Juncture of Flow and Connectivity in Healthcare IT Systems

Part of today’s complexity in healthcare stems from the way our healthcare IT systems have emerged. There are multiple entry points for patients into the healthcare system, from a relationship with a primary care physician to the sporadic, disconnected and random interaction with emergency departments, urgent care and wellness clinics. Based on current technology and the overall nature of the beast, it is highly doubtful that a single point of entry into the healthcare delivery system will ever occur and is actually less important than the quality and cost of the care delivered.  The key is the understanding of how patients’ data flows through healthcare IT systems and building an infrastructure that optimizes that flow of data and information.
