Healtheway, the non-profit, public-private collaborative that supports the eHealth Exchange, and IOD Incorporated, a leading provider of integrated health information management (HIM) solutions for hospitals, healthcare systems and clinics, today announced that IOD PRISM 6.2 is now recognized as an eHealth Exchange validated system. As the first HIM HIT vendor to receive validation, IOD’s customers will experience a significantly reduced level of effort and cost associated with onboarding to the eHealth Exchange through the PRISM platform.
The eHealth Exchange is a growing community of exchange partners, who share health information under a common trust framework and set of rules. Healtheway is the non-profit organization that supports the eHealth Exchange, as well as the eHealth Exchange Product Testing Program, which tests conformance to the specifications and underlying health information exchange (HIE) standards required to onboard with the network.
“Healtheway developed the eHealth Exchange Product Testing Program to provide a high level of assurance that the products that earn validation are interoperable with other systems, while conforming to the eHealth Exchange performance specifications,” says Mariann Yeager, CEO of Healtheway. “PRISM 6.2 successfully passed our rigorous set of required conformance tests and IOD’s customers can expect an expedited onboarding process.”
PRISM 6.2 is the core technology utilized by IOD in its release of information product and service offering. As an eHealth Exchange Validated product, PRISM 6.2 users will have efficient access to the eHealth Exchange that simplifies the onboarding process and makes the power of the eHealth Exchange available to IOD’s 2,700 hospitals and clinics. This allows IOD’s customers to be proficiently interoperable with four federal agencies, five states, dozens of Health Information Organizations (HIOs) and health systems, which represent hundreds of hospitals, thousands of providers and millions of patients that are currently part of the network.
“IOD is committed to bringing innovative, efficient and cost effective solutions to our customers,” said George Abatjoglou, CEO of IOD. “As the first HIM HIT vendor to be certified as an eHealth Exchange validated system, we are taking the steps necessary to meet that promise in a way that directly addresses many of the interoperability challenges that exist in healthcare today.”

Providing the needed data for application development and testing is a huge headache for most organizations. The problems are often the same across companies - speed, quality, cost, and control. Provisioning data can take days or weeks, every time a refresh is required. Using dummy data leads to quality problems. Creating physical copies of large data sets and sending them to distributed teams of developers eats up expensive storage and bandwidth resources. And, all of these copies proliferating...

Malicious agents are moving faster than the speed of business. Even more worrisome, most companies are relying on legacy approaches to security that are no longer capable of meeting current threats. In the modern cloud, threat diversity is rapidly expanding, necessitating more sophisticated security protocols than those used in the past or in desktop environments. Yet companies are falling for cloud security myths that were truths at one time but have evolved out of existence.

Digital Transformation is the ultimate goal of cloud computing and related initiatives. The phrase is certainly not a precise one, and as subject to hand-waving and distortion as any high-falutin' terminology in the world of information technology. Yet it is an excellent choice of words to describe what enterprise IT—and by extension, organizations in general—should be working to achieve. Digital Transformation means: handling all the data types being found and created in the organizat...
