Carilion Clinic in Virginia chooses Orion Health’s Rhapsody

MEDIA RELEASE: 6 November 2013

Carilion Clinic in Virginia chooses Orion Health’s Rhapsody

New Zealand eHealth technology company Orion Health has made another major software sale in the United States – this time to Carilion Clinic, a network of 195 health facilities in Virginia that serves nearly a million people.

Carilion Clinic, a not-for-profit network of hospitals, primary and specialty physician practices based in Roanoke, Virginia, will use Orion Health’s Rhapsody Integration Engine for system-wide integration of its health IT infrastructure. Carilion will use Rhapsody to connect disparate health IT software and applications across its facilities throughout Virginia, and Rhapsody will replace Carilion’s legacy integration engine.

Rhapsody enables healthcare organisations and partners to link their healthcare IT systems, regardless of technology or standards. Rhapsody supports a wide range of communication protocols and message formats, and helps interface analysts and hospital IT administrators to reduce their workload while meeting complex technical challenges. Rhapsody also gives administrators better personal notification options, scheduling tools and real-time activity streams to ensure important updates are received by the appropriate person.

Carilion Clinic chose Rhapsody due to the solution’s ease of use, as well as its flexibility and scalability of deployment. Carillion has already started implementing Rhapsody.

“Seamless integration between IT systems and stable application interfaces are the two critical components that underpin Carilion’s technology infrastructure and ensure reliable connectivity for all of our clinicians,” said Kay Hix, CIO, Carilion Clinic. “Orion Health Rhapsody Integration Engine will give our analysts an intuitive, stable solution for linking and monitoring the systems we use to provide co-ordinated, quality care close to home for nearly one million Virginians.”

“Carilion Clinic’s dedication to the community and to the millions of patients the organisation serves are a model for delivering care in today’s changing healthcare landscape,” said Harish Panchal, vice president, Orion Health North America. “With the installation of Rhapsody as Carilion’s integration engine, Orion Health will partner closely with the organisation to support its vision for local, co-ordinated care across Virginia.”
