NexJ Health Exchange enables seamless bi-directional interoperability
between electronic medical record systems and clinical applications
TORONTO, Sept. 13, 2011 /CNW/ - NexJ Systems Inc., (TSX: NXJ), a leading provider of enterprise private cloud software
today announced the release of the NexJ Health Exchange solution. The NexJ Health Exchange provides the tools, technology, and
functionality required to achieve interoperability and maximize
information sharing, so healthcare practitioners can focus on
increasing the quality, safety, and effectiveness of patient care.
"Healthcare organizations have many standalone clinical and electronic
health record systems that need to be connected," said Oz Huner, Vice
President, Health Solutions, NexJ Systems Inc. "The NexJ Health
Exchange brings these silos of information together so that healthcare
providers can access information across the continuum of care,
leveraging a unique platform that is fast to implement, flexible to
configure, easy to integrate, and scalable to support the largest of
The market for HIE solutions is evolving quickly as organizations seek
to demonstrate interoperability between systems and qualify for the
approximately $20 billion in incentive payments for healthcare IT under
the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA). Connectivity is the
first step in demonstrating meaningful use of electronic health records
(EHRs), and thus qualifying for incentive payments under the ARRA.
Organizations that fail to demonstrate meaningful use by 2015 not only
miss out on the incentives but will face penalties in the form of
reduced Medicare and Medicaid payments.
The NexJ Health Exchange is differentiated by its model-driven engineering (MDE) architecture which facilitates the integration of disparate
systems. MDE allows organizations to leave systems and data in place
and configure bi-directional interoperability in order to leverage the
valuable information in their existing infrastructure without having to
move data or upgrade systems.
Additionally, NexJ's integrated development platform, NexJ Studio, facilitates quick and efficient tailoring of the NexJ Health Exchange
solution so that healthcare organizations can adapt to changing
regulations and requirements. No two healthcare organizations have the
same system requirements so NexJ Studio simplifies the creation and
maintenance of interfaces by providing prebuilt adapters for standard
message formats, document formats and terminology that can be easily
leveraged with little coding in order to meet unique needs.
"The NexJ Health Exchange leverages NexJ's unique model-driven
engineering architecture and supports a wide array of industry
standards to deliver the interoperability required for healthcare
organizations to meet the meaningful use objectives," said Paul
DeVriendt, Senior Vice President of Product, NexJ Systems. "NexJ is
committed to applying our advanced technology to assist healthcare
organizations in their efforts to connect their systems and deliver
superior patient care."
The NexJ Health Exchange has already received industry acclaim as a
deployment of the solution at the Black Creek Community Health Center
was recognized by Computerworld with a 2011 Honors Laureate award for
promoting and advancing public welfare. To learn more about the NexJ
