Orion Health is a Health Information Exchange (HIE) and Electronic Health Record (EHR) solution provider with clients across the world. Orion Health provides the backbone of HealthInfoNet’s HIE system, including the centralized clinical data repository, integration engine and clinical portal. The clinical portal is set up very much like a standard EHR and is the application used by HealthInfoNet authorized users to access the clinical data repository within the HIE. Behind the scenes runs the Rhapsody Integration Engine, which offers users a unified view of patient data across all participant sites.
Health Language, Inc.’s Language Engine (LE) is actively used in standardizing the clinical data within the exchange and translating it into standard terms. The application manages and updates standard and localized medical terminology, specifically in the areas of lab and radiology tests. Standardizing terminology within the clinical exchange is fundamental to establishing a common understanding and use of clinical information with HealthInfoNet’s exchange.
IBM Initiate provides a common HIE registry to manage both patient and provider data across the HIE. These registries are leveraged both within the core clinical exchange as well as in providing supplemental data in support of Maine CDC disease reporting. Most importantly, its master person index (MPI) helps HealthInfoNet ensure patient records are matched correctly in the database. The application uses probabilistic matching tools to determine the ‘probability’ that based on certain demographic information, two records are for the same person.
Systems Engineering provides several ongoing services for HealthInfoNet including critical care (Alerting, Reporting, Patching and Backup) of the exchange hardware and software services, managed security services including 24x7x365 monitoring, alerts and event management, data center services including system hosting, network connectivity and power redundancy, and procurement of hardware and software.
