SMC Partners Announces Partnership with PilotFish, the Leader in Healthcare Integration Engine Solutions
Hartford, CT – SMC Partners LLC, an information technology, business process, and human performance solution delivery company, announced today that it has entered into a partnership with Applied PilotFish Healthcare Integration, Inc. PilotFish offers a full suite of Healthcare Data Integration Solutions that have been designed and architected to be easy to use, highly flexible, and infinitely extensible. The product suite’s hallmark is a graphical development environment that enables interface configuration without scripting or writing any code, and productivity increases of ten fold or more.
The partnership allows SMC Partners to leverage PilotFish’s integration capabilities with its own solutions and, as a Value Added Reseller (VAR), to offer them to its clients. The flexibility built into the PilotFish products enables users to handle any integration requirement ranging from medical device integration to inter-company EDI applications, from HIE development to EHR integration and more.
“PilotFish products allow us to rapidly implement client solutions. Their robust offerings enable data integration between any and all systems, applications, databases, operating systems, and platforms,” said Curt Palmer, Chief Value Steward, SMC Partners, LLC. “With Healthcare standards and requirements rapidly evolving, the extensibility and flexibility built into PilotFish’s products leaves us perfectly positioned to meet our own needs and the needs of our clients, today and in the future.”
The PilotFish interface engine solution includes the eiPlatform server and the eiConsole for Healthcare, a powerful Integrated Development Environment (IDE). PilotFish’s exclusive Assembly Line approach standardizes interface development, speeds up implementations and maintenance, and allows non-developers to become an integral part of systems integration teams. PilotFish allows interface development to be done by business analysts, lightening the load on scarce IT resources. Interoperability can be achieved in a fraction of the time and for a fraction of the cost of traditional interface development.
The demand for integration is increasing exponentially within healthcare. PilotFish has the right tools at the right time. “It has become painfully clear, during our decade of experience in the integration space, that interoperability will never happen with point-to point interfaces regardless of how well data exchange standards are defined. There is just too much diversity between systems, adaptations of standards and communications protocols,” said Monika Vainius, Executive Vice President, Applied PilotFish Healthcare Integration, Inc. “Our middleware integration engine fits in perfectly by allowing organizations to mediate these differences with an amazingly simple-to-use solution that is also incredibly powerful. By using our software, interoperability will truly become ubiquitous.”
