Logi-D incorporates iNTERFACEWARE integration engine to deliver seamless interfacing capabilities
― Adam Polka
May 8, 2014. Henderson, NV. Logi-D, a leading provider of hospital point-of-use supply chain automation technology, has incorporated iNTERFACEWARE‘s powerful IGUANA healthcare integration engine into its central middleware application, LogiDATA-iD, in order to facilitate data exchanges with other healthcare software including all pertinent financial and clinical systems such as ERP systems, ADTs, and billing applications.
Logi-D specializes in point-of-use supply chain automation technology for hospitals, including its 2BIN-iD, CC-iD, PC-iD and CIRCUIT-iD solutions. Its robust solution suite leverages various non-disruptive technologies at the point-of-use in order to effectively collect consumption data for inventory management and case costing purposes, releasing clinical time traditionally spent on paper-based transcriptions and requisitions. This captured data is aggregated in its proprietary middleware application, LogiDATA-iD, which serves as an analytics powerhouse and supply chain optimization tool.
iNTERFACEWARE’s IGUANA is the most complete set of integration tools in healthcare. With over 10,000 deployments and 800+ of the world’s largest healthcare providers and vendors relying on IGUANA, it’s not surprising that IGUANA was voted one of the fastest growing future market leaders by CIO/CMIOs in Core Health Technologies’ 2013 HL7 Interface Technology Survey.
LogiDATA-iD was designed as a middleware application, meaning that it derives significant value in pushing the data it synthesizes to complementary and legacy systems. To maximize the advantages of capturing accurate point-of-use consumption, therefore, LogiDATA-iD is interfaced with any relevant information systems utilized at the hospital. Through IGUANA, Logi-D can exchange data without restructuring existing IT architectures, allowing seamless data exchanges via multiple industry standards, including HL7, X12, and data exchange formats, such as XML and JSON, among others; requisition data from LogiDATA-iD can be seamlessly transmitted into a hospitals’ ERP system, while patient data from clinical systems can be collected and consumption data can be pushed to billing, all via iNTERFACEWARE’s interface engine.
“By incorporating the powerful IGUANA integration engine, we now have the capacity to quickly configure robust interfaces with nearly all major healthcare software providers, from PeopleSoft and McKesson to SiS and EpicCare, allowing us to fluently share that information in an impactful way.” explains Frederic Boyer, IT and R&D Department Head at Logi-D. “The strength of the Logi-D system lies in its ability to convert rich data into meaningful information, and share that information in a way that supports continuous improvement”
“Ensuring interfacing is a complete nonissue has always been paramount to Logi-D’s design vision, and adding IGUANA has facilitated exactly that,” adds Richard Philippe, Founder and CEO of Logi-D.
Eliot Muir, CEO of iNTERFACEWARE comments on the partnership: “Logi-D is an organization that harnesses emerging technologies to improve upon the status quo, the results of which have a very positive effect on improving nursing time spent with patients by eliminating manual data transferring. We are pleased that IGUANA has been such a boon to Logi-D, and look forward to continued collaboration.”
Currently incorporated into just a limited number of its client hospitals, Logi-D intends on expanding its use of the IGUANA integration engine, citing accelerated pre-implementation timelines and ease of software installation where interfacing is required: “We immediately simplified the installation process, meaning that even in hospitals with short timelines and saturated IT departments, we can confidently say that interfacing is never an issue,” concludes Boyer.
