Healthcare requirements around meaningful use demand a strong focus on enterprise interoperability, with a detailed understanding of standards, privacy, security and scalability. Currently, integrating systems across the healthcare enterprise is a daunting task for healthcare organizations.

The Orion Health Rhapsody Integration Engine enables high-performance, standards-based healthcare integration. This easy-to-deploy technology provides Philips with the interoperability required in today's complex healthcare environments, making it a perfect choice for Philips' diverse product portfolio. Standardizing on the Rhapsody platform will allow Philips to deploy technology faster and pass cost savings and benefits on to the customer.

"The simple concept of interoperability can be a daunting task when considering the need to clearly define open interfaces and implement systems in a robust and repeatable fashion, and ensure accurate and secure data transport," said Dale Wiggins, chief technology officer, Patient Care and Clinical Informatics, for Philips Healthcare. "Working with Orion Health, we will be able to better support our customers and help them achieve their healthcare IT goals by establishing interoperable health information systems."

Paul Viskovich, president of Orion Health North America, anticipates this new partnership will help health providers of all sizes take advantage of technology to streamline patient data. "Making data from Philips' solutions more accessible to physicians can improve patient outcomes by presenting a more complete clinical record. The electronic exchange of patient data is a critical component of advancing health reform and we're proud to partner with an organization of Philips' caliber."
