Champion, Corepoint partner for interoperability
Corepoint Health and Champion Medical Technologies, which offers IT for tissue and implant tracking, have partnered to develop a system that enables healthcare organizations to track information from Champion applications such as GraftTracker and UDITracker using Corepoint's integration platform.

The agreement enables case entry data to be transmitted from the Corepoint Integration Engine directly to these applications via a secure standards-based web services protocol.

Corepoint's integration software develops and tests interfaces and facilitates exchange of electronic data among healthcare applications. For applications such as GraftTracker and UDITracker, Corepoint's HL7 integration also leverages web services-based communication to deliver information quickly to clinicians. Its automated data transfer to Champion’s device tracking software enables clinicians to spend less time documenting implant data, stated Corepoint, of Frisco, Texas.

Typical HL7 integration scenarios include delivering relevant patient data from a customer’s surgery or operating room application to UDITracker or GraftTracker, according to Corepoint. Data changes are then mapped with the Corepoint Integration Engine and communicated directly to Lake Zurich, Ill.-based Champion’s applications through web services utilizing HL7 standards, XML or other data formats.
