Eftia Partners With One Of The Largest PCS Providers










Ottawa, Canada (PRWEB) September 16, 2004

Eftia, a global provider of operations management software solutions designed to meet the business automation needs of communications service providers and large enterprises, today announced that an all-PCS nationwide wireless provider in the US, has selected Eftia’s Master.Scribe to manage its state of the art wireless as well as their existing equipment in their lab network.

The wireless provider chose Eftia’s products to replace its internal systems and databases, specifically those related to asset and inventory management as well as telephone number and internet protocol (IP) address management. Procuring the Master.Scribe Inventory and Number Management Applications in order to manage these assets and circuits, it will utilize the Eftia product in nine telecom labs across the United States.

The inventory module will assist them in better managing their equipment, enabling improved administration of their hardware cost structure as well as enhanced scheduling in their test planning projects.

All testing and certification of the wireless service provider’s equipment and processes is undertaken in the lab environment before being incorporated into the field network. In order to handle this process Master.Scribe has been installed in one lab where Eftia is currently engaged in an onsite training consulting engagement to configure the Master.Scribe product and optimize its use in their lab environment. This partnership will undoubtedly prove the ability of Eftia Master.Scribe to support next-generation wireless networks, especially as the service provider completes its migration to third-generation (3G) wireless technology this year.    

“Eftia is tremendously excited to be playing a part in their plans,” says Stephen Parker, Eftia President and CEO. “We know that our products will increase their efficiency and flexibility to better enable the company to model and meet the demands of changing service offerings.” In addition to enabling them to build and maintain comprehensive records of their communications network, Eftia’s inventory management system will reduce time in testing of equipment, more efficiently manage the circuits between lab locations, and handle the association of IP number management with the data network.

Geisinger Partners with Orion Health to Build Mission-Critical Foundation for Data Integration

Geisinger Partners with Orion Health to Build Mission-Critical Foundation for Data Integration












Santa Monica, CA (PRWEB) May 23, 2011

Geisinger Health System, a physician-led health care system dedicated to health care, education, research and service spanning 42 counties and serving 2.6 million people, has selected the Orion Health Rhapsody Integration Engine as the health system’s new platform for migrating, managing, and streamlining message exchange between over 200 clinical and business systems. The new integration engine will enable them to better participate in Pennsylvania’s Keystone Health Information Exchange.

Gregory Miller, technical analyst at Geisinger explains, “We needed a reliable and flexible data integration platform that supports newer technology capabilities and connectivity to our RHIO — Rhapsody is a key component in our participation — and participation in health information exchanges. Rhapsody will also support our goals to automate and connect to federal programs such as NHIN and PHIN.”

Geisinger Health System’s previous integration engine was sunsetting so they used the opportunity to review their criteria list and explore other product options. Rhapsody was selected for its ability to provide a broad set of monitoring capabilities, for its easy to use drag and drop functionality and its ability to run anywhere, including UNIX. In addition, Rhapsody provides a migration tool set to enable a seamless, step by step process away from eGate, significantly reducing migration time.

Orion Health Senior Vice President of Global Marketing Christopher Ward says, organizations faced with a sunset situation as with eGate have the opportunity to deploy a platform for the future. “Orion Health’s focus on health care customers results in products that are remarkably straight forward and adapted to future requirements. Rhapsody’s eGate migration tool kit means an IT department can reduce the time it spends replacing technology and implement a platform to get on to the current and future business of meeting health data exchange needs.”

“Geisinger Health System is a leader in developing systems that help patients and physicians use technology to connect for better health outcomes. Orion Health is delighted to enjoy association with innovative, mission-forward organizations like Geisinger.”

Orion Health solutions use standards-based technology to integrate data within a facility and external partners without incurring costly rip and replace approaches. Currently the company helps facilities and healthcare communities that connect 35 million patients with tens of thousands of active users.
