Meaningful Use certification
Meaningful Use Stage 2 requirements define deadlines and reporting requirements that are creating a more interoperable healthcare system.

Starting in 2014, every eligible physician or hospital attesting to Meaningful Use must utilize 2014 Edition EHR certified technology, which includes supporting the Direct protocol. The good news for specialty clinics and hospitals is that the Direct protocol is a simple, “secure e-mail” method for connecting to the medical community without the need for costly programming.
Because Corepoint Integration Engine was the first Meaningful Use Stage 2-certified interface engine, customers know they can send and receive health data in the proper format—which provides a competitive advantage in the always changing world of health IT.
“After installing Corepoint Integration Engine, what took 30 days for complete implementation with the previous interface engine took only one week with Corepoint Integration Engine.”
Direct Project allows clinics and specialty clinics to easily receive referrals and authorizations and transmit order results to any organization with a Direct address.

Patient referrals will be sent and received using Direct protocol, making it easier for your clinic to electronically connect to or interface with regional referral sources.
Direct has the potential to greatly reduce the IT manpower divide between regional health systems and specialty medical clinics, to the benefit of both parties and their patients.
As patient healthcare data is shared between facilities, privacy and security are of utmost importance. Using web services in Corepoint Integration Engine lends itself well to this type of sharing as a secure method of transport that is flexible, with its XML structure, to incorporate profiles aimed at consent, authentication, auditing, and all the other attributes important to healthcare IT. Secured Web services are a standardized way of integrating applications. Using open standards, businesses can communicate without in-depth knowledge of one another’s systems, beyond the communication protocol. Because all communication is XML-based, web se...

“Frankly, support was poor with our previous interface engine vendor, given the fact that we required frequent assistance in maintaining and keeping it running. We would operate weeks at a time with critical systems needing repair waiting for support to get back to us.”
“On the other hand, with the robust nature of Corepoint Integration Engine, implementation was simple and easy, so much so, we implemented most interfaces without the need for support.”
“Corepoint Health is the best vendor I have ever worked with. They are the benchmark that I compare all other integration engine vendors to, and none compare to Corepoint Health. Top to bottom, they are the best at everything they do, whether it is their product, support, development, or professional services.”
“We have just been in a constant state of change lately, and every bit of that is a change in our information system. Everything is just crazy these days with the rapid changes, and if it wasn’t for Corepoint Health, we would be in rough shape.”
