case study: Marshall Medical Center
“The web-based nature of the Iguana Dashboard is a profound improvement in monitoring and troubleshooting.”
New protocols and compliance regulations drove Marshall Medical Center to re-evaluate their integration strategy to ensure they could keep up with current and future changes.
Marshall Medical Center implemented Iguana®, one of the most robust integration tools available on the market.
New interfaces are developed in record time, maintenance and troubleshooting are managed more efficiently than ever.
Performance in Integration
Healthcare Information Technology is constantly changing. With new protocols and integration requirements surfacing, the need for organizations to re-evaluate their integration strategy becomes apparent.
Expecting a larger number of new product integrations coupled with plans to strive towards Meaningful Use compliance, Marshall Medical Center made the decision to explore their options. Marshall Medical’s Programmer Analyst, KevinTrammel explains, “We had several departmental requests for a simpler, more robust solution.”
Trammel speaks to the development experience of Iguana: “I developed 26 new interfaces on Iguana in only 3 months. Previously this would have taken at least twice as long.”
The development of an interface should only happen once but the maintenance of that interface is an ongoing reality. The need for easy-to-use management and diagnostic tools is essential in healthcare. “The web-based nature of the Iguana Dashboard is a profound improvement in monitoring and troubleshooting,” points out Trammel. “Troubleshooting is very easy with Iguana. Searching log files is like using Google to search for help documentation. It’s very fast and intelligent.”
Reliability in healthcare IT is essential. “Moving to Iguana has improved the functioning of our interfaces considerably,” explains Trammel. “Since migrating our interfaces to Iguana, they have not failed even once. It also works better with the interfaces of our integrated products. This has been a tremendous benefit to the entire department and the organization as a whole.”
