NexJ Health Exchange integrated with 40 vendors, completing 116
integration tests across 10 categories
TORONTO, Feb. 21, 2012 /CNW/ - NexJ Systems Inc., (TSX: NXJ) a leading provider of next-generation enterprise customer
relationship management (CRM) solutions and the sixth fastest growing technology company in North America, today announced successful
testing of NexJ Health Exchange at the Integrating the Healthcare Enterprise (IHE) Connectathon.
NexJ Health Exchange is a robust, flexible solution that provides open,
standards-based interoperability between proprietary and
standards-based health information systems (HIS), Electronic Medical
Records (EMR), and Health Information Exchanges (HIE). Its vast library
of pre-built adapters and easy-to-use graphical modeling and management
tools simplify the process of connecting clinical systems according to
National Health Information Network (NHIN) Connect Gateway, IHE
profile, or HL7v2 and v3 standards.
"Following on our success at the 2011 Connectathon, we were determined
to demonstrate even greater support for an expanded set of standards in
2012 and achieved this by adding support for seven additional IHE
profile actors," said Eric Gombrich, SVP & GM, NexJ Health Solutions
Group. "Our library of pre-built IHE profile adapters, available in
NexJ Health Exchange, provides organizations with the fastest, most
flexible, and most cost effective way to integrate clinical and other
systems to achieve a comprehensive view of the patient across the
continuum of care."
During the Connectathon, NexJ Health Exchange tested and passed 10 IHE
profiles including: Cross-Community Access (XCA), Cross-Community Patient Discovery (XCPD), Patient Demographic Query (PDQ), Patient Identifier Cross Referencing (PIX) and Cross Enterprise Document Sharing (XDS).
The XCA test proved NexJ can query, retrieve, and present patient
electronic health records held by other communities. This enables the
sharing of health information so that it is accessible wherever a
The XCPD test demonstrated that NexJ supports locating communities with
patient records, and the translation of patient identifiers across
communities. With this functionality individuals can be uniquely
identified and their health record made accessible irrespective of
where they had been previously treated.
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.
The integration will be on display at the HIMSS Conference Interoperability showcase taking place February 20 to 24 at the Venetian Sands Expo Center, Las
