IGI Announces Portal Designed to Maximize Data Sharing Between Hospitals and Their Affiliated Physicians
Date:4/6/2009

Portal will Help Healthcare Providers Reduce Integration and Interoperability Costs and Improve Continuation of Care

CHICAGO, April 6 /PRNewswire/ -- HIMSS -- Infotech Global, Inc. (IGI) today announced the launch of the ORBIT(R) Affiliated Physician's portal, a software solution that provides an efficient way to exchange healthcare information inside hospitals and with health information networks. This solution will allow healthcare providers to be more easily connected to one another so that they can provide better care while benefiting from reduced integration costs.

Until now, the sharing of patient information between healthcare network participants has been hindered by the steep costs and complexities of proprietary data and integration services. Integration between IGI ORBIT(R) and Intel(R) SOA Expressway for Healthcare addresses this problem with an efficient, scalable, SOA based solution that connects and translates data as it moves across a healthcare network. IGI ORBIT(R) utilizes Intel(R) SOA Expressway for Healthcare to retrieve data for portal display from a variety of hospital systems including EHR, EMR, database, or HL7 based sources.

The solution has already been successfully piloted with several healthcare providers, including at a hospital system and its trading partners in Monmouth County, New Jersey. The Affiliated Physicians portal boasts a return on investment with as little as ten affiliated physician's connected.

"We are excited about taking this offering to the hospital and IDN market. In this current economy, more than ever, we feel that hospitals must find a way to build closers ties with their affiliated physicians in order to improve the quality of care, while maximizing hospital revenue," said Arthur Kapoor, CEO of IGI.

"It's a powerful combination -- IGI's portal framework enables rapid sharing of healthcare information and Intel(R) SOA Expressway for Healthcare delivers standards-based SOA integration capabilities from a wide variety of legacy healthcare systems," said Girish Juneja, director of SOA Products at Intel Corporation's Software and Services Group. "In addition, Intel(R) SOA Expressway for Healthcare's optimization for Intel(R) multi-core processors as a soft-appliance delivers an outstanding price-for-performance ratio which drives down total deployment costs."

The IGI ORBIT(R) portal framework has open capabilities for clinical and revenue cycle transaction sets. Intel SOA Expressway for Healthcare acts as an interface engine and provides for rapid data exchange, workflow management, and translation to enable data exchange to and from any original format. This advance in software is an example of how technology can help improve patient care and reduce healthcare costs by streamlining information flow.
