Rhapsody, a Boston-based international leader in healthcare interoperability and data connectivity solutions, has announced an agreement to merge with Corepoint Health, a provider of enterprise healthcare interoperability software solutions, to develop a next generation interoperability platform and enhance data integration and connectivity for existing and future customers. The companies will continue to operate as two separate entities for the foreseeable future.
Combined Entity Supports Healthcare Interoperability
As a leader in interoperability, Rhapsody has seen unprecedented demand for its integration engine and solutions from hospital and health systems across the world. The combined resources and technology of Rhapsody and Corepoint Health will allow both companies to meet that demand, as well as deliver a more comprehensive integration offering that enables organizations to address some of healthcare’s most pressing interoperability challenges.
Available on premises and as a cloud-based service, the Rhapsody and Corepoint interoperability platforms offer comprehensive routing and transformation functionality for every operating environment, offering highly differentiated features, applications and end customer focuses. The two platforms also support commonly used messaging standards and protocols such as FHIR®, HL7® V2, CCD/C-CDA and DICOM. These integration engines are among the most secure technology platforms in the healthcare industry, with customer bases that include the entire healthcare ecosystem and across the globe, including provider organizations, technology vendors, HIEs and public health systems.
“We are entering a new era in healthcare where the emphasis will be on expanding ecosystems and establishing new data trading partner relationships to optimize clinical and operational workflows. These initiatives will be powered by interoperability and data management: healthcare organizations that can excel in these areas will have a significant competitive advantage,” said Sean Cassidy, CEO of Corepoint Health. “The combination of Rhapsody and Corepoint enables our customers to continue to get tremendous value out of the products and services they love, while having the confidence that their interoperability partner is heavily invested in helping them confront the challenges they will face in the future.”
