Key Components


The main messaging service that implements communication.

The Rhapsody engine is the main component of the Rhapsody product. It accepts messages from input systems, processes the messages within the engine, and sends them to output systems. The engine provides secure connectivity, guaranteed message delivery and high message throughput. Message archiving, filtering, routing, translations and queuing all occur according to the engine's configuration. The Rhapsody engine takes care of managing standards required for health data integration; from established protocols to emerging standards like HL7® FHIR®. JSON and HTTP Rest support within Rhapsody routes enables organizations to start implementing FHIR-based interfaces. Rhapsody provides support for a range of protocols and databases, enabling connections and communication to new and old systems. Rhapsody is listed as a class one medical device with the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Rhapsody also supports HIPPA and is certified to meet relevant Meaningful Use criteria.

Development Environment (IDE)

An easy-to-learn graphical user interface to configure the functionality of Rhapsody.

The IDE is an application that provides a graphical user interface for the creating and editing of Rhapsody configurations. The IDE enables the interface designer to create, view and modify interface configurations in a graphical drag-and-drop environment. Components are dragged into place from the toolbox of available processing actions (called filters) and connection interfaces (communication points). The IDE automatically generates formatted interface documentation describing the configuration. Custom extensions can be built onto the interfaces using the Rhapsody development kit. This allows users to enhance Rhapsody's built-in capabilities to add value within their specific domains.

Management Console

A web-based application that displays system status and performance.

The Management Console is a web-based application, designed to reduce time spent on day-to-day monitoring and management, while providing dependable message delivery and helpful troubleshooting. It displays information on the system status and state of message processing in the engine. The Management Console highlights issues as they arise, enabling users to resolve issues in a timely manner.

Mobile App

Convenient monitoring capability of the Management Console on a smartphone.

Rhapsody Mobile is a free mobile app for Apple iOS and Android that provides a subset of monitoring capabilities from the Management Console. It provides users with an up-to-the-minute view of the health of the Rhapsody engine and its connected network – anytime, anywhere.


Displays the notifications and system health of multiple Rhapsody engines in a single monitoring-centric view.

Rhapsody Dashboard enables the monitoring of all Rhapsody engines running in development, test and production systems. The dashboard provides a real-time health status and alert function for the engine and links to the Management Console for more detailed information. Rhapsody Dashboard empowers administrators to monitor multiple Rhapsody engines by providing a view of system health at a glance.
