IHE Connectathon results prove the NexJ Universal Health Connector meets the standards for sharing information between healthcare enterprises and the National Health Information Network gateway
Toronto, February 16, 2011 — NexJ Systems Inc., a leading provider of enterprise CRM solutions for the financial services, insurance and healthcare industries, today announced the successful testing of the NexJ Universal Health Connector at the Integrating the Healthcare Enterprise (IHE) Connectathon.
The NexJ Universal Health Connector, a platform developed to enable healthcare systems to share data using global messaging standards, tested and passed three IHE profiles: Patient Demographic Query (PDQ), Patient Identifier Cross-Referencing (PIX) and Cross Enterprise Document Sharing (XDS).
The PDQ test proved that NexJ can search for patient visit and demographic knowledge such as name, age or gender, from within the patient registry central to a number of remote healthcare facilities and return complete and accurate results.
The PIX test complements the PDQ test and demonstrated that the system is able to recognize information related to a given individual, despite having been labeled distinctively with bar code or other naming conventions in different areas of the healthcare system, and associate the information to the person. The ability to locate and access the complete historical health record by individual is a critical element for people-centered health.
The XDS test provided evidence that electronic health record documents can be shared between healthcare enterprises, ranging from physician offices to clinics to acute care in-patient facilities. The technology developed for this can further be applied to facilitate collaboration between healthcare providers or coaches and individuals, regardless of location and enable people-centered health.
“During the course of the week, NexJ successfully completed testing against systems from over a dozen different vendors including some of the most recognized brands in the world and demonstrated that we have the technology required to help improve the quality, efficiency and safety of clinical care,” said William M. Tatham, Chairman and CEO, NexJ Systems Inc. “NexJ is committed to making a difference in healthcare by developing people-centered solutions that will empower patients with access to the information they need to manage their wellness.”
