WebReach, Inc. Becomes Mirth Corporation

New name signals expanded vision to speed healthcare interoperability following successful launch of Mirth Project, healthcare's leading open source healthcare integration engine

IRVINE, Calif., April 24 /PRNewswire/ -- WebReach, Inc., a leader in open source healthcare information technology products and consulting services, today announced its new company name, Mirth Corporation (Mirth). Mirth is dedicated to helping healthcare organizations - including Health Information Exchanges (HIEs), hospitals, clinics, pharmacies, and clinical laboratories - successfully achieve interoperability-driven improvements in care at a fraction of the time and cost of existing commercial or homegrown data interface solutions.

In 2006, WebReach founded the open source Mirth project, incubated its code base, and has served as its corporate sponsor and primary source of professional support and related consulting services since the project's inception. Since that time, Mirth has become the most widely downloaded open source software for healthcare data integration, achieving over 60,000 worldwide downloads since its launch. The Mirth contributor and user community now stands at over 6,000 registered users. Mirth healthcare integration software and appliances are in production use within leading HIEs and hospital systems across the U.S. and UK.

The latest version of the Mirth integration engine, called Mirth Connect(TM), enables healthcare organizations to quickly and securely move laboratory data, radiology images, prescriptions, and continuity of care records to points of care within the organization and across the healthcare community. It can be downloaded and easily integrated into an organization's information environment or run on purpose-built Mirth Appliances that provide out-of-the-box interoperability with minimal installation complexity. Customers have used Mirth Connect to rapidly build data exchange interfaces with health information technology leaders like Cerner, Epic, Siemens, McKesson, GE, Allscripts, NextGen, Sage Software and many others.

Current national and regional initiatives to promote physician and hospital adoption of electronic health records, including the $19B health information technology component of the U.S. economic stimulus package just signed into law by President Obama, create the risk of "information silos." Mirth facilitates and simplifies information exchange allowing critical patient information to flow among clinicians and across healthcare communities - supporting data-driven clinical decision support and effective care collaboration. "Patients arriving in a care setting, such as an Emergency Department, benefit when doctors and nurses have relevant data at their fingertips to support time urgent care decisions," said Jon Teichrow, co-founder and president of Mirth. "Mirth Connect helps make that happen at a cost that's affordable for the smallest community hospitals and clinics as well as the largest regional health information exchanges" added Teichrow. "We've seen clients go from zero to live with Mirth-powered data interchanges in days to weeks, not months to years."

Mirth Connect supports all major healthcare data interchange standards, including HL7, X12, DICOM, NCPDP, and even XML. "As standards-based, open source software, Mirth Connect dramatically reduces up-front cost for hospitals, clinics and HIEs and eliminates vendor lock-in. With full certification and backing, it offers healthcare CIOs the benefits of both open source software and commercial-grade support. We also offer security hardened information appliances and full turnkey hosting. Consequently we're seeing more and more institutions make the switch from older interface engines to Mirth - lowering their total cost of ownership and harnessing the power of data in their legacy systems" said Teichrow.
