Mirth Connect implementation for EHR and EMR systems interoperability

An innovative startup looking to positively disrupt the healthcare industry wants to solve surgical challenges by capturing all the relevant patient information to offer recommendation for preventive healthcare. To achieve this, orchestrating seamless communication between disparate systems from various vendors would be a critical requirement. Connecting the Electronic Health Records (EHR) in various formats from different vendors into their product has been an issue for the company in the past.

In many cases, medical systems and applications are built on proprietary systems to avoid the complex protocols that are needed to exchange information or share data. For example, they might not adhere to the HL7, which is one such set of standards, and might simplify or deviate from it. This results in creation of silos of data and many other interoperability problems. So,in order to realize their vision, the company’s leadership had to embrace this reality and create a strong integration solution that can handle and accept sensitive patient data from the EHR solutions to their application reliably and securely.

The Vatsa solution: Integration engine for healthcare platform and EHRs

Vatsa enabled interfacing of EHR and Electronic Medical Records (EMR) into their product to exchange information related to the patients. The Vatsa team used the popular Mirth Connect (also known as Nextgen Connect), an opensource cross-platform HL7 interface engine that enables bi-directional sending of HL7 messages between systems and applications over multiple transports. They used it to bring together disparate systems and exchange information with the company’s product. The team did multiple appropriate mappings of the fields, pre-processing and post-processing of information for the data to be used in the right manner. In the process, the team also handled multiple differences in field formats, ranges, values and more to ensure that the product was able to interpret the data accurately and achieve true interoperability.


Vatsa has strong expertise in the healthcare domain. Vatsa’s consultants are specialized in helping companies build healthcare products and platforms using various technologies, protocols and standards such as HIPAA, HL7, Mirth Connect, CCD and CCR. This vast domain expertise helped Vatsa Solutions provide great results to this highly innovative company:

Calibration management Manufacturing

Transforming a legacy desktop-based management software into an end-to-end responsive web-based management system

A leading manufacturer of IT and office automation equipmentfrom Oman has a range of electronic equipment for healthcare, consumers electronics, telecom, military, security and many more industries. The calibration labs of the company must calibratethese equipmentvery precisely as part of their product development and testing process. The labs use a desktop-based utility to manage the calibration. However, the utility needs significant manual intervention and is it tedious to use, often leading to errors and rework. Being a desktop-based utility, it is also difficult to deploy, configure, manage, upgrade and keep it consistent across all machines and deployments. The loss to business due to the inconsistencies, inefficiencies, rework and product returns due to errors is estimated to be a whopping 20-25%.
To mitigate this challenge, the management team wants to set an automated workflow to manage the calibration process for their calibration labs and build a better utility that is easy to deploy, manage and use,so they could improve their quality and efficiency metrics.

The Vatsa Solution: A responsive web-based calibration management software for improved process outcome

Vatsa designed and developed an internal web-based portal to standardize all workflows and calibrations for the company’s production team. The tool went beyond just recording the calibration values to helping with the entire calibration process. Vatsa achieved standardization in the workflowwith the following functionality:

1) Providing the ability for product teams to create calibration template that can be applied to a group of similar equipment along with their respective expected values, validations and ranges
2) Identifying and mapping the tools or testingdevices to be used for calibrations of an instrument
3) Prepopulating the readings into the calibration template and applyingthe template to each equipment
4) Providing the ability to enter the readings against each machine according to its template along with tracking of any changes in values
5) Defining the schedule and assignment of calibration to individuals and recording the actual calibration
6) Approval or rejection of calibrations and proposing recommendations via the system for the person doing the calibration
7) Evaluating the result of the calibration across all devices for reporting and dashboards to assist managers and leaders in the company

The standard templates created as part of the solution provided all the meta-data measurement type, the master standard, reference standard and standard operating procedure. Also, it defines the number of readings to be taken while calibrating an instrument and whether it is the master instrument that needs to be fixed or the DUC (Device Under Calibration).

Calibration Workflow

The new web-based system managed the following stages of the calibration process
(Also known as check-in). If the customer is not present in the system, an account is created on the fly.
A Job is created and assigned to a technician and barcode stickers are printed.
Calibration of the equipment is performed according to the calibration template and measurement standards of the equipment.
A Calibration Certificate is generated as per the recorded readings and specifications.
(Also known as check-out). DO and invoice is generated for delivery.

For the calibration lab of the company, the success of their business model lies in their ability to reliably and accurately calibrate instruments manufactured by them as well as other companies.In this project,Vatsa Solutionsbrought extensive technological expertise and experience working with manufacturing companies to deliver many benefits for the company:

Manufacturing Intranet Portal

Manufacturing Intranet Portal

Modernization of critical SharePoint based enterprise software platform for improved employee productivity and collaboration

A large candy manufacturer from the United States relies on SharePoint for its employee collaboration initiatives. The purpose of this portal is to inform, train and educate employees. Being a business that creates high volume, creative products for children, the company relies heavily on new ideas and innovation fostered from within its employee and partner base to consistently bring new products to the market and stay a step ahead of competition. The SharePoint-based intranet portal was called New Product Initiative, or NPI. NPI allowed the employees to put up ideas for new products, which then went through various feasibility studies and approval cycles that involved other corporate teams including product, manufacturing, marketing and finance. While the company had a process for this communication, the adoption of the current portal by employees fell short of company’s expectations due to rigid legacy architecture and lack of streamlined process and automation. Lack of optimum integration points, performance issues and a subpar user experience caused inefficient usage and hurdles in collaboration between teams.

The Vatsa Solution: Improving performance and user experience of SharePoint based system
The company’s management wanted to modernize this business-critical application and approached Vatsa to perform a due diligence. The due diligence process surfaced key insights and bottlenecks related to the usability of the portal and workflows. It was decided that using the Microsoft environment was the most optimum because it utilized the existing infrastructure, had a great price-to-performance ratio and provided a robust roadmap with strong integrations for future enhancements. Vatsa used SharePoint designer and improved the overall portal experience by creating a new look and feel. As an important step and to address the key insights that had surfaced, Vatsa also redesigned the site navigation and user experience to introduce layers of activity that aligned with organizational goals and the innovation process, and created workflows for data collection and information validation that drove the product ideation process. These workflows provided review points and designated approval hierarchies as forms and other documents that traced an idea seamlessly from the beginning to its logical conclusion. Superior user experience, and seamless workflows with appropriate roles, alerts and reminders were the key highlights of the transformational improvements that Vatsa brought to the engagement.

The company has been in manufacturing business for nearly 100 years. With increasing pace of business and rising competition, introducing new product ideas continuously was identified as a critical differentiator for the company. Vatsa brought its full-stack expertise on Microsoft technologies to transform the existing portals and business processes with superior performance and user experience. This resulted in:

1) Vastly improved ideation process powered by automated workflows and seamless interworking of all SharePoint and NPI components
2) An order of magnitude improvement in employee adoption and usage of the new NPI system, with it becoming the primary source of communication for the entire innovation process
3) Adoption of NPI by the core product team for its own internal usage and innovation in addition to new ideas coming from employees at large, resulting in dramatically increased productivity of staff across the board
4) A robust system that is a durable competitive differentiator and core competency that is hard to replicate for others in the industry
