IHE Connectathon results prove the NexJ Universal Health Connector meets
for sharing information between healthcare enterprises and the
National Health Information Network gateway
TORONTO, Feb. 16 /CNW/ - NexJ Systems Inc., a leading provider of enterprise CRM solutions for the financial
services, insurance and healthcare industries, today announced the
successful testing of the NexJ Universal Health Connector at the Integrating the Healthcare Enterprise (IHE) Connectathon.
The NexJ Universal Health Connector, a platform developed to enable
healthcare systems to share data using global messaging standards,
tested and passed three IHE profiles: Patient Demographic Query (PDQ),
Patient Identifier Cross-Referencing (PIX) and Cross Enterprise
Document Sharing (XDS).
The PDQ test proved that NexJ can search for patient visit and
demographic knowledge such as name, age or gender, from within the
patient registry central to a number of remote healthcare facilities
and return complete and accurate results.
The PIX test complements the PDQ test and demonstrated that the system
is able to recognize information related to a given individual, despite
having been labeled distinctively with bar code or other naming
conventions in different areas of the healthcare system, and associate
the information to the person. The ability to locate and access the
complete historical health record by individual is a critical element
for people-centered health.
The XDS test provided evidence that electronic health record documents
can be shared between healthcare enterprises, ranging from physician
offices to clinics to acute care in-patient facilities. The technology
developed for this can further be applied to facilitate collaboration
between health care providers or coaches and individuals, regardless of
location and enable people-centered health.
"During the course of the week, NexJ successfully completed testing
against systems from over a dozen different vendors including some of
the most recognized brands in the world and demonstrated that we have
the technology required to help improve the quality, efficiency and
safety of clinical care," said William M. Tatham, Chairman and CEO,
NexJ Systems Inc. "NexJ is committed to making a difference in
healthcare by developing people-centered solutions that will empower
patients with access to the information they need to manage their
