Lab Integration -
Healthcare Interoperability Realized
New eiPortal for Healthcare – Reduce the Time and Effort of Customer Implementations by 80% With a Self-Service, Automated Interface Testing, Validation and Implementation Resource
If your Lab offers a standard set of interfaces, file formats, or web services for consumption by many customers you need the new eiPortal. This exclusive product replaces the manual and resource intensive processes involved with customer implementations with a self-service implementation resource and a fully automated facility to test and validate customer messages prior to deployment. (Watch the 5 minute demo for a quick tour.)
Free up scarce IT resources. With the eiPortal your staff:
- No longer needs to individually send customers your implementation
specifications and files. An online repository provides everything
required to configure an interface to your system. Simply publish
these to the eiPortal once, send customers the URL and you’re done.
- No longer needs to individually desk-check sample data payloads.
Automated validation replaces time-intensive and tedious desk
checking by your staff.
- No longer needs to field customer questions by email and phone.
The eiPortal provides actionable error messages that tell your
customers not just that a problem occurred, but also how to fix it.
- No longer needs to spend hours tracking down why a customer’s
message failed a test. The eiPortal displays a customer self-service
log of messages that replaces manual troubleshooting by your staff.
- No longer needs to hand-hold customers through implementations.
The eiPortal is fully automated to provide self-service integration with
Help screens and Tutorials offering assistance every step of the way.
The eiPortal provides a one stop resource for customer implementations and it can be customized to meet your exact requirements in as little as 4 weeks.
A 3 Step Process for Setting up Your Custom eiPortal
- Your organization defines the data formats, communication methods and validation rules required for electronic data exchange with your data exchange partners.
- PilotFish configures a customized eiPortal for your organization where these definitions are then encoded in the eiPortal's testing facility based on your organization’s sample requirements.
- In minutes, using an intuitive Wizard, your organization publishes its implementation guides, sample files, documents and contacts, etc. on the eiPortal.
That's it! Your customers are ready to use the eiPortal. Your staff is freed up for other requirements. Only when your customer has self-tested and validated their messages does your staff need to get involved for final integration testing and production deployment.
The eiPortal is powered by PilotFish's proven technology used by Fortune 500 companies and Government. The eiPortal can be customized to meet the unique branding, validation, authentication and message certification needs of any organization.

Want to Be Able to Accept Any Format Your Customers can Provide Using Any Communication Protocol?
The eiPlatform (EIP) Interface Engine and eiConsole for Healthcare IDE rationalizes the myriad of data formats, communication protocols, programming languages and encryption methods used through transformation to a single common set of standards, the "common language", so you can accept ANYTHING your customers can provide.
Standards only provide a backbone for interoperability. Plug and play can only exist if everyone is using the same standard, the same version and hasn't extended it. Plug and Play simply is not feasible in healthcare. PilotFish's interface engine mediates these differences in standards and protocols enabling interoperability with virtually any system, databases or application and using any protocol. We support more protocols than any other product (24 out of the box) and our open API provides unlimited flexibility.
Lab integration is fast, too, with the eiConsole's "Assembly Line" process for building interfaces and a fully graphical IDE. No coding is required, although a full featured XSLT editor is under the covers, a tab toggle away. The structured approach assures that your interfaces are all created the same way, are robust and of high quality, too. All dependencies on who created an interface are eliminated too!
You'll speed up lab integration with full inline support of the HL7 vocabulary. This includes not only the ability to browse all of the messages in the standard, but to view the associated field descriptions and codelists. Partner and system-specific messages can also be used as examples to “slim” the view to include relevant fields. Once you have configured the appropriate view, mapping to or from a given message is accomplished through the eiConsole's intuitive drag & drop data mapper.
The eiConsole offers more HL7 productivity-boosting features than any other product. So, you can handle whatever your customers send your way. Are you dealing with extended versions of HL7? No problem. Automate mapping between slightly incompatible HL7 messages with the eiConsole's HL7 Differencing Engine. Are you working with non-standards compliant HL7? Perform “Lenient Parsing” of HL7 messages with our included module and work with messages not strictly adherent to the HL7 standard. Have new staff truggling with all those cryptic HL7 names? Use our Friendly Name Option to easily replace them with simple, understandable synonyms.
Convert to an Excel Spreadsheet, Cobol Copybook or an EDI format by choosing from an extensive list of processors and configurable connectivity, transformation and data manipulation components. With PilotFish's solutions you'll never have to turn away a Data Exchange Partner again because you cannot accept their data formats.
After your interfaces are built and you are ready to deploy, the eiPlatform provides a simple deployment platform with all of the robust audit, monitoring and performance features one could expect of an enterprise-class middleware solution.
