Technology Partners debuts i3
Healthcare information application developer Technology Partners of Charlotte, N.C., has released i3, a product to simplify the development of data-transfer interfaces between disparate software applications in the medical environment.

The tool allows for the integration of data between practice management systems, hospital information systems (HIS), RIS, and PACS for both electronic files and paper documents, according to Sam Khashman, president and CEO of Technology Partners.

The application facilitates the extraction of charge data, patient information and payment data elements from dictated reports, patient demographics and charge data and explanation of benefits (EOB) forms whether they are in electronic or paper formats, the company said.

The firm originally developed the i3 product for its ImagineRadiology application, but is now making it commercially available to radiology practices, medical billing companies and clearinghouses.
