Watch this webinar and examine how Catholic Health Initiatives manages an enterprise integration engine for the nation’s third-largest nonprofit health system.
With 102 hospitals, multiple inpatient and outpatient facilities, and hundreds of service providers in 19 different states, Catholic Health Initiatives (CHI) is the nation’s second-largest Catholic healthcare system. CHI replaced 9 end-of-life integration engines across the organization in record time with an enterprise solution capable of meeting all requirements across their three HIS/EMR platforms.
We chatted with Michael Wallace, Director Meditech/Enterprise Application Integration at CHI, and with Orion Health’s Vice President of Intelligent Integration, Harish Panchal, about the importance of implementing an enterprise integration to achieve large-scale interoperability in extremely complex environments.
In this webinar, we explained:
- How to make sure your engine has the technical components of integration fully covered for a complex environment (e.g., 50,000,000 messages a day)
- How to choose a platform that allows faster, better, and cheaper development, brings consistency, and future-proofs your organization with real-time data and the latest standards (e.g., FHIR)
- How to leverage an enterprise engine, investment, staff, Disaster Recovery, and data
