Halfpenny Technologies combines superior technology with exceptional project management and testing services to offer turn-key health information exchange (HIE) solutions designed to meet the diverse needs of healthcare clients.
Our turn-key solutions feature the following technologies and services:
Integration Technology Framework (ITF)
The success of an integration project relies heavily on the ability to connect legacy systems to physician EMR systems. The Integration Technology Framework (ITF) provides a proven ASP-based technology platform with a robust feature set that has been fine-tuned for the exchange of clinical data between healthcare organizations. The core technology behind Halfpenny’s suite of integration solutions, ITF supports the full range of clinical data integration needs with flexible format transformation, data mapping and workflow configuration.
Halfpenny Technologies developed ITF-SecureConnect to reduce the time and effort involved in establishing the connectivity needed to support interfaces between hospitals, labs and physician EHR systems. With ITF-SecureConnect, a connection can be established in hours, not weeks and is as secure as a VPN connection.
Secure Data Center
Halfpenny Technologies hosts its turn-key integration solutions in a secure data center. Use of the Halfpenny data center provides clients with immediate access to our solutions as well as continued security and reliability—without the need to purchase equipment or allocate internal configuration resources.
Experienced Integration Team
The skills and expertise of our experienced staff enable us to deliver interface projects on time and on budget.
Our integration teams are comprised of the following:
Halfpenny’s project managers work directly with physician practices, hospital, lab and EHR or HIS/LIS vendors to set expectations, define specifications and meet timelines. Our team of professional project managers can handle all project needs from start to finish.
Our technical analysts review the interface specifications, define the HL7 translations, determine code mapping and document the interface process.
In many cases, interfaces require multiple customizations. Our software engineers specialize in the intricacies of HL7 and our development team has a wide range of expertise with various HIS, LIS and EHR systems.
Our medical technologists design a customized test plan for each interface and perform quality assurance testing with input from the client. All testing is documented and turned over to the client for acceptance and final sign-off. An interface summary document is provided to our clients after Halfpenny Technologies’ work has been completed.
