Apex successfully deploys VistA.js and eHMP to Microsoft Azure

Tampa, FL (April 27, 2017) Building on the momentum from the VA’s recent pilot of the VistA.js Data Federation Platform and Apex’s creation of a turn-key Cloud-based eHMP application development platform on Amazon Web Services (AWS), Apex Data Solutions announced today that it has successfully deployed both platforms to Microsoft Azure.

“This capability comes at a critical time as VA leadership moves forward with its health care platform modernization efforts,” noted Gregory Matton, CEO of Apex Data Solutions. According to Mr. Matton, “supporting these open-source platforms in tandem with OSEHRA and Microsoft, will serve to open the doors for companies to assist the VA in achieving its health platform modernization goals.” “This new milestone can also play a critical role in integrating more scalable and interoperable solutions designed to support VA’s growing community-based care program and to address the increasing demands for managing that external patient data” said Mr. Matton. 

The open-source VistA.js Data Federation Platform democratizes access to VistA data, using a Web-centric approach for accessing and aggregating data from the over 130 VistA instances deployed across the VA healthcare system. The Medication Reconciliation and Allergy Review (MRAR) Web application was the first clinical application to leverage the VistA.js platform and enables clinicians and patients to collaborate, review, and reconcile, a Veteran’s medications and allergies at the point of care, using real-time federated data across all VistA instances.

In furtherance of the VA’s and OSEHRA’s open-source initiatives, Apex transformed the VA’s Enterprise Health Management Platform (eHMP) development stack into a simple, manageable, and turn-key development platform. Apex has mitigated the challenges with installing and configuring the eHMP stack, thereby empowering developers to focus on eHMP-related development.  Using the automated approach developed by the Apex team, the entire collection of eHMP servers and dependencies can be created quickly via a single command, on any Cloud computing platform, with a significant reduction in eHMP-related system resources necessary to support the eHMP development environment.

The Apex Advantage

Apex Olympos™

Apex OlymposTM – our platform for rapid, agile development in a microservices-oriented world – brings your data systems and legacy applications into the 21st century by modernizing your architecture to current enterprise standards.

  • Transform client-server systems into n-tier distributed systems with maximum re-use of existing code and business logic quickly with proven tools, techniques and methods for legacy application modernization.
  • Lay the correct foundation for more advanced data sharing and collaboration with Olympos, then layer Apex DomainMaster or Apex Unify! on top for an approach to interoperability that is both robust and reliable.

Apex DomainMaster™

Apex DomainMaster™ brings the power of linked data and blockchain together on the desktop with a compelling new commercial database management system designed for the 21st century. With DomainMaster, it’s never been easier to collaborate or keep your disparate “data silos” in sync. Essentially “Unify! in a box,” Apex DomainMaster brings unparalleled productivity to the development of “semantic web” applications to the masses, even leveraging existing investments in traditional desktop SQL databases like MS Access.

  • Streamlined, iterative and exploratory development of domain concepts with intelligent data import/export capabilities well beyond traditional ETL approaches.
  • Create a single source of truth and align your system of record against it when new information is added to the system—even if the origin of the new information was externally generated!
  • Know that your data is always secure, always local, and impossible to corrupt or otherwise leak information.
  • Includes Apex Olympos.

Ready to go “Enterprise”?

Apex Unify!™ Platform

Apex Unify!™ is a full-stack distributed platform for semantic interoperability that is designed to overcome traditional technical and political barriers to data sharing in highly regulated, services-based industries like healthcare and finance. It can be used by large government and commercial enterprises to share patient or client data or by companies growing by acquisition to quickly bring disparate internal IT systems into corporate alignment.

  • Apex BlockSync™ with Apex ForeverDB™ provides secure, decentralized sharing of semantically rich, arbitrarily complex data across organizational and even domain boundaries.
  • Apex Synchronicity™ provides unparalleled processing power for semantic alignment of disparate IT systems.
  • Over time, existing systems can be enhanced, deprecated or replaced without fear of information loss, ever.
  • Includes Apex Olympos.

Unify! and DomainMaster both use or embed our game-changing technologies:

Apex ForeverDB™

Apex ForeverDB™ brings several innovations to the problem of global information management. It supports three high-level categories of data: “Eternal” storage (hence the name ForeverDB), “Long-term” storage, and “Short-term” storage. It also provides a granular model of truth over time in a world of multiple conflicting sources of truth and a novel concept of identity mapping that is uniquely suited to the problem of reconciling disparate data both internally and externally to the organization. With ForeverDB™, information loss is simply never a problem. 

Apex BlockSync™

Apex BlockSync™ is a blockchain-powered, optionally distributed transactor of novelty in a given domain designed to make sharing semantically rich information across systems and organizational boundaries part of the architectural “woodwork,” not yet another API-driven exchange of information. BlockSync tackles the complexity of data interoperability while preserving organizational autonomy with respect to critical business logic and choice of back-end technology stack. No participant is forced to use the same database software, just the same source of truth.

Apex Synchronicity™

Apex Synchronicity™ is the technology by which information held in “Long-term” and “Short-term” storage in ForeverDB is synchronized across multiple internal systems of record. It provides internal data federation as well as a coherent methodology for identifying discrepancies across local systems and updating them as these discrepancies are resolved. With Synchronicity’s lightweight design, no system of record is conscious of participating in federation at all. Legacy systems of record can be replaced without fear of losing information, ever. 

Apex Team Collaborate™

Apex Team Collaborate™ simplifies data reconciliation and truth propagation by empowering your teams to vet new information as it enters the system, especially when errors or discrepancies are detected, forcing human intervention and workflow. With Team Collaborate, every reconciliation session is an opportunity to improve both efficiency and usability, providing analytics that will ensure continual process improvement—not to mention happier users—over time. Team Collaborate’s front-end, Apex DocuMentor™, ensures critical, timely documentation of each resolution.
