iNTERFACEWARE™, a Toronto-based software provider committed to simplifying healthcare integration, has announced Iguana 5.5, the newest version of its powerful healthcare integration engine. The updated release builds upon the successful introduction of the Iguana Translator, an innovative development environment, and provides new options to organizations looking to streamline workflows, increase productivity and overall efficiencies while enhancing patient care.
As healthcare organizations continue to expand, and hospitals and medical organizations consolidate and pool resources, the ability to integrate numerous systems is critical. Iguana 5.5 integrates everything from electronic medical records, laboratory and imaging data to financial information and inventory data. The latest solution, which is web-based and platform independent, is aimed at helping organizations and enterprises dramatically reduce the time and effort required to develop, test and maintain these interfaces.
“In today’s competitive environment, healthcare organizations are all racing to reduce expenses as well as efficiently adopt new and emerging standards. Advances in health information exchanges are also creating urgency around the importance of sharing information and data,” said Eliot Muir, CEO, iNTERFACEWARE. “Iguana 5.5 ensures our customers have the resources they need to address the complex IT challenges they face on a daily basis.”
Iguana 5.5 also features a new integrated help system geared towards providing organizations with real-time support and documentation targeted to their specific needs. Access to this type of information, with this level of specificity, is a dramatic improvement over a typical ETL workflow.
“Iguana 5.5 dramatically reduces the amount of time needed to create customized interfaces,” said Elvin Vivares, Systems Administrator, Rush Memorial Hospital. “The new help system, which includes detailed usages, parameters and examples, provides invaluable support and insights.”
