FireBridge from Dicom Systems makes FHIR Integration easy

Campbell, CA, January 12, 2016 – Dicom Systems a Silicon Valley-based healthcare IT company and Teleradiology interoperability expert, introduces its newest product FireBridge. Launched at RSNA’15, FireBridge enables any third-party system in the Enterprise Imaging ecosystem to seamlessly integrate using the latest FHIR standards.

“As healthcare organizations strive for greater interoperability, the introduction of HL7’s next-generation standard, Fast Healthcare Interoperability Resources (FHIR) has garnered a lot of attention in the industry,” said Dmitriy Tochilnik, Dicom Systems’ President and CTO. “FHIR facilitates interoperability by providing an implementation framework, combining Web technologies with existing HL7 capabilities. We created FireBridge to aid in the implementation of FHIR, which makes any interface FHIR ready. Those entities that embrace FHIR will ultimately be able to communicate up-to-the minute data across disparate systems, increasing health care quality, increasing patient access and use of health information and improving outcomes.”

FireBridge™ Functionality:

  • Translates to and from FHIR to HL7, DICOM, or any simple system event
  • Makes any interface FHIR-ready and DICOMweb-enabled
  • FireBridge, combined with DICOMweb, allows third-party applications upload any kind of standard data to the Dicom Systems Enterprise Imaging Suite and Vendor Neutral Archive.
  • Extends the useful life of your current systems by bringing them up to the latest interoperability standards.
  • Deploy FireBridge as a FHIR proxy for Radiology, Cardiology, Oncology, Ophthalmology, Dermatology, and any other subspecialty connected to Enterprise Imaging.
  • Securely connects all third party applications to the Dicom Systems  VNA without VPNs, leveraging TLS, in full compliance with HIPAA regulation and standards.
