Meddius, the leading provider of healthcare integration appliances has announced the launch of the Integration Router Nano as the newest in its line of integration appliances available through the Meddius Integration Platform. The announcement was made at the 2011 Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS) conference in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Todays integration challenges have moved beyond the four walls of the hospital to large distributed networks and communities of care, says Ryan Sean Adams, Vice President of Sales at Meddius. The edge points of these integration networks are locations like physician offices and long-term care facilities running IT infrastructure from the storage closest or in the cloud. To reliably integrate these edge points, we needed an appliance that can be deployed anywhere the data lives: in a reception area, an exam room, or under a desk.
The Integration Router Nano is a small-form factor integration appliance designed for non-acute care environments. Fully installed in minutes, the Nano arrives pre-configured to integrate with popular practice management systems (PMSs) and electronic medical records (EMRs) found in physician offices. Once deployed, the Nano establishes a HIPPA-compliant tunnel to exchange electronic protected health information (ePHI) to third-parties and health systems. Organisations may use Nanos in tandem with acute-care Integration Routers to create a wide area integration network for acute and non-acute care systems.
