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.

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.
