InterSystems HealthShare Message Transformation Services

Cloud-based, On-Demand Message Transformation for Amazon HealthLake

By automatically translating your data from the HL7®v2 messaging format to HL7 FHIR® format, HealthShare Message Transformation Services accelerates analytics time-to-value for users of Amazon HealthLake. HealthLake requires the use of HL7 FHIR, the latest and most widely accepted exchange format for health information. Yet the richest stores of data in your provider, laboratory, payer, or pharmaceutical organization likely rest in other formats such as HL7v2. To bring this data in, Amazon Web Services selected InterSystems to build a validated message transformation service for Amazon HealthLake. HealthShare Message Transformation Services gives you a simple and cost-effective way to get the most from your data in HealthLake.
