PilotFish Blasts EHR/EMR Integration
Obstacles Stymieing Solution Providers
Solution providers continue to struggle with EMR / EHR vendor obstacles to data exchange and interoperability. Even with intense Government and industry pressure, it’s not getting any easier. So what do you do? With PilotFish, easier successful EHR/EMR integration for solution providers (in virtually every area of healthcare) isn’t a pipe dream. It’s a proven reality.
PilotFish offers a complete solution for EHR/EMR integration that includes PilotFish tools along with a consistent and repeatable process. Medical equipment and solution providers have been leveraging PilotFish’s solution for successful implementations with a long list of EHRs / EMRs:
PilotFish “Adapters” Fast Track Your EHR/EMR Implementations
There are a myriad of cloud-based and on-premise EHRs/EMRs in the market today, each of which may use its own flavor of an industry-standard operability model (such as FHIR, HL7 2.x and CCDa) or a custom integration method or API. Writing hard-coded interfaces to wire your HIT solution directly to each and every one of these is not a viable or cost effective option.
We were extremely pleased with the high level of service and dedication that the PilotFish team exhibited during this implementation phase. PilotFish was a true partner working hand-in-hand with the Morrison team to leverage the PilotFish integration engine solution. Together they built a foundation for a set of high-performance pipelines between HL7-based EMR and registration systems and the cloud-based JSON API exposed by MyDining.

Solutions providers who work with PilotFish leverage the inherent flexibility of our “graphical automated interface assembly line” to create a single, common method for sending data into and out of their system. Through simple configuration, that single API can be translated into the API calls or HL7 messages dictated by the downstream EHR/EMR. Initial setup of each of these “adapters” is a point, click, drag-and-drop process. Once a single configuration is created, it is added to an instantly-reusable library of templates that quickly evolves to cover the majority of the EHR/EMR landscape.
PilotFish’s new HTTP XML component allows users to encapsulate entire, “chatty”
API-driven business processes in a single, easily defined workflow step.
Novel New HTTP XML Component Leverages the Flexibility of XML and JSON APIs, including FHIR
Unlike other integration engines, the PilotFish eiConsole and eiPlatform provide a consistent means to adeptly handle not only large batch-oriented data and HL7 2.x messaging, but highly-conversational XML and JSON APIs, including FHIR.
- For HL7 based systems, PilotFish offers its custom “lenient” HL7 2.x parser, capable of immediately ingesting virtually any version or interpretation of an HL7 message, without wasting time in cumbersome modeling of messages.
- For those offering lightweight, RESTful APIs, our new and novel “HTTP XML” component offers a means to encapsulate entire, “chatty” API-driven business processes in a single, easily defined workflow step.
- For those leveraging CCDs or other complex XML formats, our template-based approach to graphical data mapping offers dramatic improvements in productivity over solutions requiring scripting, coding, or drawing “spider webs” of interconnecting lines between fields.
Speed Up Your Timelines. Realize Revenues Faster!
Other products do a poor job of leveraging reuse; some don’t make it possible at all! PilotFish’s eiConsole was built to maximize reuse. Generally, each new EHR/EMR implementation can be achieved by cloning an earlier effort and only making minor modifications in configuration – no programming is required. Users can simply select “duplicate” from a drop down menu, then tweak their mapping and test and go! Reuse is not limited to entire interfaces. With PilotFish’s component driven approach, each component and individual mappings can be duplicated and, in just seconds, utilized to speed the creation of high quality new interfaces.
Solution providers and medical equipment and device makers are among the PilotFish clients realizing amazing productivity gains. Most clients have reported that they can tweak a default interface to bring on new customers in less than 30 minutes! Due to the ease of use of the product, most clients are able to utilize non-developers for 80-90% of the interface work freeing up IT talent for other projects. PilotFish’s ease-of-use is attested to as most of our clients achieve virtually 100% self-sufficiency, too.
