Top Academic Medical Center Chooses Orion Health Rhapsody Integration Engine 

UAB Medicine to use Orion Health’s integration engine 

Scottsdale, Ariz. — September 28, 2016 — University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB Medicine) will replace its connectivity software platform with the Orion Health Rhapsody® Integration Engine, Orion Health announced today.

UAB Medicine needed a state-of-the-art integration software platform that would be easy for the information technology staff to learn and use, powered by technology powerful enough to support elaborate data transformations and unique rule sets. UAB Medicine utilizes a wide range of major hardware and operating system platforms as well as software it developed on its own, so its integration needs were complex.

UAB Medicine’s transition to Rhapsody will involve rewriting approximately 300 interfaces as well as implementing new interfaces and integration projects using Rhapsody.

Rhapsody achieves rapid interoperability between healthcare systems, enabling connected solutions in less time and at a lower cost. As Orion Health’s foundation product, Rhapsody is the enabler that brings systems together and is a proven, high-performance engine for robust, reliable exchange and acquisition of health data.
