Toronto / Boston, 20 Feb 2017 – Kainos Group plc (LSE:KNOS) and iNTERFACEWARE have announced their intention to implement the Fast Healthcare Interoperability Resources (FHIR) standard as a key component of the Evolve Integrated Care (IC) platform. This announcement represents a significant new phase in the relationship between the companies, who have worked successfully together for several years. The iNTERFACEWARE Iguana product will provide a bridge between the Evolve FHIR implementation and external clinical systems.
FHIR is the next step in the evolution of healthcare information integration. It allows organizations to build new applications for healthcare delivery which make full use of data otherwise locked in proprietary systems, at speed and with agility.
Kainos Evolve IC enables care pathway automation, ensuring everyone involved in a patient’s care has the information they need at the right time to provide efficient, high quality care. A complete, aggregated shared care record is an essential part of such automation, and this can only be compiled by collating clinical information from the many different IT systems typically used in healthcare organizations.
The cloud-based Evolve IC platform is based on the FHIR standard for storage and exchange of clinical data. iNTERFACEWARE was chosen to link Evolve IC and non-FHIR healthcare IT systems because of its strong integration capability and market-leading Iguana interface engine.
“We chose FHIR as our repository and communications standard as it represents the future of healthcare information exchange,” said Alastair Allen, CTO of Kainos Evolve. “Our partnership with iNTERFACEWARE and its Iguana product will increase the speed and agility of our development. FHIR is helping us to innovate and meet the complex information needs of healthcare organizations by giving us the ability to integrate with a vast array of healthcare IT systems.”
Eliot Muir, CEO at iNTERFACEWARE adds: “This new phase of our relationship with Kainos Evolve is an opportunity to transform healthcare information management for the largest hospitals and care networks in the world. Connecting systems and creating new solutions based on FHIR at such an accelerated pace proves the value of the standard.”
