Simply the Best Healthcare Integration Platform: Zen Healthcare


The adoption of technology in healthcare over the years has led to better diagnosis and treatment of patients. Out of all the benefited sectors from technology adoption, healthcare is probably the most important one. Someone cannot argue that technology in healthcare is a new thing. We use medical technology from the most severe case to the simplest medical case, like breaking a bone. From plaster to robotic surgery, technological advancement is always present and undisputable. Nevertheless, behind every medical technology, there is the patient in mind. The transformative power of technology could not obviously be missing from the healthcare sector. Even though it is a sector requiring highly skilled individuals with many years of studies, it is also a very demanding one in infrastructure and tools. Globally there are various tech firms providing excellent solutions to the healthcare segment, but Zen Healthcare IT stands out from the rest.

Zen Healthcare is an interoperability technology and consulting company. The company helps health IT vendors, providers, HIEs, and payers simplify interoperability.

Gemini Integration Platform

Need a way to achieve clinical data interoperability without the cost of standing up your own platform? Getting tired of on-going interface development, monitoring, and maintenance? That’s why Zen Healthcare has created the Gemini Integration Platform – an Integration as a Service (IaaS) solution. The Gemini technology is an Integration as a Service Platform, meaning you can take advantage of integration tools with secure hosting and a team of integration engineers working with you to make your interface projects successful. Leverage your own interface engineers to build connections, but depend on Gemini as your fully managed infrastructure. Rely on the fully outsourced integration services, infrastructure, and interface development of the Gemini platform. If you are a healthcare organization required to exchange data within your own systems and third-party systems, Gemini is for you. Zen’s Gemini solution brings interface technology, engineering, and services together to help your organization succeed in the growing demands for data exchange. The Gemini Integration Platform acts as a hub with state public health reporting agencies allowing healthcare organizations and vendors to connect with vaccine registries. Gemini simplifies interoperability through advanced tools to acquire all types of data, transform the data to usable formats, and transport it to any healthcare organization. Common health data exchange initiatives such as Sequoia eHealth Exchange and Care quality, HIE connectivity, and clinical system interfaces are ideal uses for the Gemini integration platform.
