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 organisation 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 helps future-proofing your organisation with real-time data and the latest standards (e.g., FHIR)
  • Why migrating to an enterprise engine and how to leverage investment, staff, Disaster Recovery, and data
