Apex to present capabilities at upcoming HIMSS17 Conference

Tampa, FL (January 17, 2017) Apex Data Solutions, a pioneer and leader in enterprise architecture, interoperable platforms, point-of-service digital data capture, ApexTM Master Data Management and data federation solutions, will be exhibiting in the Interoperability Showcase at the upcoming HIMSS17 Conference & Exhibition held in the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, FL, from February 19th – 23rd, 2017.

Apex will be on hand to demonstrate a variety of its leading healthcare-focused platforms, products, and capabilities, including its latest development work on the VistA.js Data Federation Platform; the newly-redeveloped VistA.js-hosted Medication Reconciliation and Allergy Review (MRAR) application; our self-contained eHMP Development Environment; and Apex’s ForeverDBTMproduct.

“We are pleased to be a part of the Interoperability Showcase at this year’s HIMSS conference, and are extremely excited to highlight a variety of our firm’s strategic initiatives and technical capabilities as they relate to healthcare and IT,” said Gregory Matton, CEO of Apex Data Solutions. “We have tremendous momentum heading into 2017 based on the success of our VistA.js and MRAR projects, and we’re looking to further extend those efforts through tighter collaboration with the VA’s eHMP team. As we apply and extend the knowledge gained from these undertakings, we look forward to rolling out Apex’s ForeverDBTM database product and other components of the Apex Unify!TM stack. We are eager to demonstrate the real-world impact these products and solutions are having, and will continue to have, in today’s interoperability landscape.”

Focused on modernizing data access to VistA, the VistA.js Data Federation Platform is an open-source Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA) platform that enables real-time federated access to data which is stored across multiple VistA sites. VistA.js allows consuming applications to display a cohesive view of a patient’s medical data at the point of service, even when that patient data is spread across a number of VistA medical centers. Apex will demonstrate a unifying Use Case utilizing its MRAR clinical application that uses VistA.js to pull patient medication and allergy information from multiple VA medical centers, and to write back clinical notes to the respective VistAs in FHIR format. VistA.js is currently in the pilot phase at five (5) VA sites, with a VA national rollout planned for FY2017.

As an initial step toward integrating VistA.js with the VA’s eHMP platform, Apex’s DevOps team has successfully streamlined eHMP’s heavyweight development “stack” consisting of over 17 separate software packages, numerous virtual machines, and a multitude of inter-dependencies into a compact, efficient, easily-deployable, and cloud-friendly Docker-based development environment that uses one virtual machine, launches with a single command, and coordinates code development and version control, all while running comfortably in 10GB of memory or less on Windows, Mac, and/or Linux.

Apex will also demonstrate its ForeverDBTM database product, which leverages immutable data strategies to support massively scalable interoperability between many systems of record (SORs). ForeverDBTM brings both an unparalleled preservation of data’s historical context and storytelling to any big data business intelligence environment, with a unique focus on facilitating interoperability and sharing of enterprise knowledge between disparate systems.
