Gain Faster Speed to Market From the PIE by Leveraging Reuse and Collaboration

Organizations can gain new efficiencies and realize potentially dramatic savings with the PilotFish Interface Exchange. The PIE is your one-stop online marketplace for interface templates and components developed using our breakthrough graphical IDE, the eiConsole.

Imagine the possibilities of a marketplace where you can freely and easily, share, distribute, and publish your eiConsole interfaces, templates, and components. Make your interfaces instantly downloadable and available for reuse with just a few simple tweaks. Speed up interoperability in the healthcare ecosystem and collaborate on interface development. Create interfaces that you can license and charge a fee for their use. The PIE is real, and it’s here now. Participating is just a few clicks away, and it is FREE.

The power of the eiConsole is in its architecture and configurable design. By generating configuration files, the eiConsole makes it possible to “share” these interface templates or components directly with any eiConsole user or publish them on the PIE. From the PIE it’s a simple click to download them for direct use into a user’s eiConsole project window. Built right into the eiConsole is an instant PIE “share” capability. Organizations can choose to have a private PIE, available only to authorized users or make their offerings public, available to all. You set the access level. Our online wizard makes the whole process take just minutes, too. Any licensee of the eiConsole can publish on the PIE with no fees due to PilotFish.

The PIE wizard is a complete publishing system where you can include files, documentation, templates, samples, videos, screenshots, descriptions, contact information and anything else you choose. It even has complete legal contracts that you can customize. Choose from making your interface templates and components available for free, or charge a license fee. You determine the fee and terms.

Large Enterprises Experience Collaborative Efficiency by Leveraging the PIE

The PIE acts as an enterprise’s central integration repository where business users, managers, and developers can effectively communicate and participate throughout the development life-cycle. It categorizes applied integrations into sets of reusable components, of which individual steps may be re-used, eliminating developmental overlaps. Some examples of reusable components include specific HL7 document-to-database-schema transform rules, database polling listener configuration, regular expression processors rule-sets, and involved source-to-target transformation rules.  Available 24/7 in the cloud, the PIE puts members of geographically diverse teams on the same page.

Organizations with Many Customers that Need to Integrate with Their Systems Can Harness the Power of the PIE

By utilizing the PIE organizations, whether they are EMR vendors, payers, medical labs, medical equipment makers or others, they no longer need to individually send customers their implementation specifications and files. The PIE offers its customers an online repository where they can provide everything required to configure an interface to the organization’s system. It’s a simple matter of sending them a URL, and they’re done. Everything they need is in one central location and available 24/7!

Organizations can further automate onboarding customers by leveraging the PilotFish eiTestBed. The eiTestBed provides a testing facility that enables message submission, validation and emulation of information exchanges before going live. Learn more about the eiTestBed >

HIEs, Government Institutions, and State Universities Can Easily Collaborate and Share Interfaces

The same interfaces are being configured everywhere. Why should organizations keep reinventing the wheel? Imagine the possibilities of true collaboration where one interface can be built and shared across an entire healthcare ecosystem. The PIE makes this collaboration not only possible but an efficient process that is also easy to manage and maintain. By setting up a private PIE and collaborating, members can realize enormous savings in time and resources and connect systems in a fraction of the time that it takes now.

The PIE is a powerful value-add of the PilotFish Integration Engine Solution Suite. It dramatically extends the power of and fosters the reusability of eiConsole interfaces.
