Rhapsody Integration Engine
Seamless connectivity between legacy and next-generation health systems
Orion Health Rhapsody Integration Engine comes with a number of rich features straight out of the box
Rhapsody's drag-and-drop tools, common interfaces, wizard-based configuration and advanced options enable quick set-up, message routing and business logic definition and fine-tuning for non-standard needs.
Simplified Standards Support
Rhapsody's standard healthcare communication protocols library features HL7 v3 ready and supports Clinical Documentation Architecture (CDA), Continuity of Care Documents (CCD) and Integrating the Healthcare Enterprise (IHE) profiles.
Integrated Lookup Tables
Lookup tables provide high performance data translations with a simple configuration interface. Match multiple fields and translate complete HL7 CE data types, or use the lookup tables for custom business logic.
Connection to Anything
Utilizing a vast range of protocols and standards (including Web Services, XML and HL7) Rhapsody enables connections to new and old systems and modernizes legacy system interfaces to leverage existing infrastructure.
Guaranteed Message Delivery
With built-in support for HL7’s acknowledgement protocol, Rhapsody provides multiple layers of protection against unresponsive systems.
Configuration Document Generation
Rhapsody’s development tools automatically generate formatted interface documentation based on your configuration to ease support concerns and lower training and maintenance costs.
Rhapsody’s powerful EDI Designer provides specialized tools for making modifications to standard messages or for configuring custom formats such as comma separated variable, fixed width or other delimited formats.
Tailored Message Analysis
Rhapsody provides utilities that compare real messages to a standard definition. This allows messaging standards to be tuned to the vendor’s custom changes without detailed specifications.
Powerful Database Connectivity Tools
Rhapsody provides powerful and flexible database connectivity tools that can extract and insert data into custom databases. This flexibility allows custom applications, utilities and reporting to be developed for almost any purpose.
Accelerated Development and Testing
Rhapsody’s unit testing framework accelerates development and testing cycles. Test messages may be attached to component or conditional connectors allowing analysts to see any interface step's input and output. These messages are saved for future regression test case use.
Real-time Activity Stream
Rhapsody presents system and user messages and comments in real-time. Users can monitor the engine, check for error conditions and resend messages. Notifications and escalations are easily set up to ensure warnings are promptly handled.
High Performing, Reliable and Scalable
Rhapsody supports a number of high availability configurations. As a high-performance service bus, Rhapsody provides a proven, reliable and scalable network hub.
Configured engines can be deployed quickly and inexpensively. Full configurations can be added in minutes, with no engine downtime even with custom-built components. OEM partners can automate the deployment of the Rhapsody engine and out-of-the-box configuration with their products.
Orion Health partners and resellers can insert their own logos and branding in the Management Console and Rhapsody IDE.
Custom protocols and actions can be added using the Rhapsody Development Kit and harnessing the Rhapsody API. OEM partners and others can enhance Rhapsody’s capabilities with third party add-ons for added value.

Rhapsody itself, it's a great integration engine. It does everything that we need it to. For us in New Brunswick, it sits in the middle. It's the buffer that we need between the standards, the interpretation of the standards, and the systems that we're deploying to.
