HIE Integration Solutions

HIEs Rapidly and Radically Improve Integration with Exchange Partners

Integration demands on HIEs just keep increasing. There are more systems and databases than ever to integrate with – all with highly variable standards and data formats. That’s challenging in itself, but HIEs also often face the limitations and growing costs of homegrown solutions, older interface engines and open source solutions that require developers to write custom components. They are also budget-strapped with tight resources and limited funds. That’s why HIEs are turning to PilotFish.

With PilotFish, you get one easy-to-use and learn integration solution that helps you get more done faster. Business Analysts can do up to 90% of the configuration, bringing project costs down and freeing up scarce developer talent. Maintenance and updating costs also plummet. 

The PilotFish Integration Engine Solution offers an exclusive graphical automated interface assembly line – no programming or scripting. Integrations, no matter how complex, follow one simple process. One integration solution can be used for all implementations.

Integrate To or From any Format

PilotFish gives you the flexibility to integrate with any database, operating system or application. Use any data format and any communication protocol – 2 dozen+ are built-in and extensible with our open API.

HIEs value the rich set of HL7 and EDI X12 specific features for healthcare.

Rapid Implementation Times

With PilotFish’s eiConsole for Healthcare, each interface is constructed from a common set of stages (including Listeners, Processors, Transformations, Routers and Transports). All components can be graphically configured. Drop-down menus and simple configuration screens make building healthcare interfaces easy. All data mapping can be done using visual drag & drop. The codeless and intuitive process allows non-developers to do up to 90% of the configuration.

PilotFish Client Product Quote“Love the ease of use and the speed of which you can get your job done on this platform. It has taken every file type we have thrown at it and processed the files with ease.”


“Right now we are running CCDAs, HL7s and Claims data with little to no problems at all. With the platform, we are leaving to move fully over to PilotFish – it has been a pleasure to work with and have had night/day experience from where we were.”

Benefit from Automated, Built-in Functionality and No “Surprise” Additional Costs

PilotFish delivers a complete solution of integrated components that encompasses the full integration life cycle. Unlike competitive engines, there is no additional cost to access components or features. For example:

  • Built-in automated parser and validating functionality ensure data normalization and quality without slowing down production. The process identifies, flags or fixes data issues. Manual checks can be eliminated. Developers are freed from decoding and parsing arcane formats. 
  • Built-in inline testing can be invoked at any point in the process and end-to-end before deployment. PilotFish is self-documenting as well.

Slash Timelines and Costs with Interface Reusability – Clone, Tweak & Go!

With PilotFish, you easily reuse interfaces by cloning existing interfaces. Utilize a library of existing templates and select the closest to what is required for a new interface. Utilize an existing interface as a master template for multiple integration points. PilotFish enables chaining “standard” interfaces with implementation-specific variants. The cost advantages of reusability alone can be immense.

Integrate Anything to Anything, Anytime, Anywhere

HIEs can meet their current and new integration requirements with PilotFish. PilotFish is architected with built-in flexibility as well as virtually infinite extensibility. PilotFish is easily extended to support new standards and technologies. Updating standards is as direct and straightforward as loading in a new version.

PilotFish Client Product QuoteWith the implementation of the PilotFish integration middleware, we’ve already seen dramatic gains in the manageability and flexibility of our trading partner communications. These technical benefits have been coupled with improvements in team productivity, allowing our organization to deliver a much higher level of service to our members than was previously possible.”
