Why is healthcare moving interoperability infrastructure to the cloud?

Healthcare delivery organizations want to integrate data across many technology platforms, including on-premises and newer, cloud-based applications. Moving healthcare integrations to the cloud simplifies maintenance and security, while positioning organizations for a technology future that’s cloud-based. Cloud-based applications are subscription-based and convenient for healthcare organizations, with faster installations and smoother upgrades.

Larger trends in healthcare, technology, and consumer behavior are leading healthcare organizations to move to cloud-based data integration.

Fast technology adoption

As healthcare organizations responded to the pandemic, they purchased new cloud-based applications to support telehealth and remote work. 

Digital consumers

Consumers expect to interact digitally with their healthcare providers, with their information staying consistent across the healthcare organization. The result? More data to integrate across a healthcare organization’s many IT systems, including connecting new apps and wearables. 

Competitive edge

A technology labor shortage means that healthcare providers and tech companies must compete and innovate with smaller teams. Efficient, cloud-based technology relieves pressure on IT teams.

How Lyniate supports your move to the cloud

Lyniate’s proven methodology supports a fast, cost-effective, and smooth migration to the cloud. 

  • Methodology created from work with customers across the globe
  • Once deployed in the cloud, Lyniate experts manage the infrastructure
  • Customers benefit from best-in-KLAS® integration engines deployed on AWS

Options for cloud-based deployment

Once healthcare integrations have been migrated to the cloud, they require maintenance and management. New integrations may need to be built. Lyniate customers choose how much integration management they prefer to shoulder. Customers choose the deployment option that best fits their business goals, staffing, and budget.

Moving health data integrations to the cloud

A how-to guide for migrating integrations to the cloud without disrupting business as usual

A proven migration strategy from Lyniate will make your move to the cloud smoother, every step of the way

  1. Discover

    Lyniate develops a comprehensive migration plan based on your existing solution workflows, technical requirements, and business goals. We work together to prioritize which interfaces transition to the cloud and to plan all timing and logistics.

  2. Build

    Lyniate builds a cloud environment in AWS, upgrades your environment, and prepares your data for production.

  3. Map

    We plan and test every data mapping, test them to your configuration in a non-production environment, and evaluate mappings completely for connectivity.

  4. Cutover

    We manage a smooth transition from your legacy engine to your cloud-based engine, with attention to detail that avoids any interruption to business operations.

Let us help you move your health data integrations to the cloud

How to keep your cloud migration on track

Lyniate applies best practices to keep your migration process timely, straightforward, and cost-effective. We do this by:

  • Working closely with you to prioritize the interfaces to cut over to the cloud.
  • Updating your legacy engine interfaces and sending copies of messages to the cloud engine to compare them. 
  • Ensuring that the output of your legacy engine is turned off, and the cloud interface is configured to send messages directly to downstream systems.
  • Enabling your upstream vendors, routing messages directly to your cloud engine, and then retiring your legacy on-prem interface.
  • Keeping your legacy engine available until the retention period for the last interface elapses.

Customer-proven results

Ensuring customers are successful is our highest priority.

“We wanted a cloud-based option and a fully managed service — a partner who knew health integration, so our engineers could focus on one pipe and one protocol to get data to the integration engine, and then trust that service to securely share the data downstream with our clients.”

Mike Hawn

SVP Data Services & Product Solutions for BioIntelliSense

“I don’t want to say it was easy, because migrating 200 interfaces is never easy. But we were able to bring them seamlessly into Lyniate Rhapsody as a service, and we were off and running.”

Darren Powell

AVP of Applications, UofL Health

“The fact that I don’t have to spend thought cycles on the areas that Lyniate manages is a huge benefit. I can shift my team from figuring out integrations to getting new contracts established with partners, vendors, and customers. Having Lyniate Envoy has definitely been a huge boost for us.”
