Swift, Sleek and Secure HL7 integration for Healthcare Organizations
Iguana 4.5 enhancements include:
FTP Support – With Iguana 4.5, a user can specify “From File” as the source component for a channel and “To File” as the destination component for a channel for effective communication with an FTP server. For added security, the latest version also supports SFTP and FTPS.
Faster Log Searching – Iguana 4.5’s full-text search provides instantaneous access to millions of logged events including HL7 messages, interface statuses, and errors. As a result, users can quickly search through months or years of information to pinpoint activity and results.
Improved Message Resubmission – Iguana 4.5 enables users to edit and preview grammar, table or message results live on the resubmit screen for an easier resubmission of messages.
Enhanced User Management – With Iguana 4.5, users can define roles to specify user permissions and access rights.
Efficient Dashboard Control – Not only does Iguana’s dashboard provide a comprehensive overview, its batch control feature enable organizations to monitor and manage all interfaces simultaneously.
Easier Message Routing – Iguana 4.5 supports even more databases and data types to increase the number of source and destination options. Combined with Iguana’s inherent ability to enable multiple destinations to be added on the fly, message routing is easier than before. Furthermore, HL7 messages can be filtered and transformed within the same channel.
Enhanced Storage and Accessibility – With unlimited storage for logs, organizations can customize the level of logging detail as desired, from server-wide events to specific channel activity only. At the same time, Iguana’s new log API enables external applications to access the logs via a broad range of programming languages including C++, C#, VB.NET, Java, and Delphi.
Powerful Email and SMS Alerts – The latest version of Iguana can immediately alert organizations to any important log message, event, or channel activity/inactivity, based on pre-defined rules. E-mail notifications can include links back to Iguana’s web interface, enabling remote and secure monitoring of messages and ensuring confidentiality. Iguana can also send SMS alerts directly to a cell phone, ensuring more rapid response and minimizing potential interface down-time.
Scalability and Reliability – Iguana handles interface throughput with ease irrespective of the number of channels. At test capacities of more than 200 interfaces, Iguana can export HL7 messages extremely fast without impeding performance.
