Fiorano Health Data Exchange Framework


Fiorano Healthcare Data Exchange Framework

The Fiorano Health Data Exchange is a platform that facilitates sharing of healthcare data between organizations, applications and systems. It is built on Fiorano's Enterprise Service Bus (ESB) with support for high speed, reliable messaging, healthcare protocol standards, and integration with legacy or existing Healthcare Systems. The Fiorano Health Data Exchange was used to create the Fiorano Interoperability Tool Kit (ITK) Framework, which has been awarded the ITK v2 accreditation for integrating NHS systems.

The Fiorano Health Data Exchange is an ideal platform for HIX and HIE. Its reliability and unlimited scalability make it a perfect choice for the real time, high transaction requirements of the emerging Healthcare market.

By utilizing graphical, executable, orchestration tools it is quick and easy to create and implement Business Process Integration flows and transformations for healthcare data. An organization can link a consumer's information to a suitable choice of insurers or eligibility for Medicaid as part of a Health Insurance Exchange (HIX). You can also implement and manage a Health Information Exchange (HIE) and facilitate communication between a patient and a Healthcare provider as part of a well-being program.

Benefits of the Framework

Solution Creation Environment

Fiorano's powerful orchestration studio to help build solutions using a rich set of adapters plus support for native coding languages to create new adapters, if required. Visual tools are also included to describe transformations, mappings and content based routing. Solutions can even be extended at runtime without having to stop and start the entire system.

Peer-to-peer architecture for performance, scalability and reliability

At the core lies Fiorano's high performance message queuing system. This enables a peer-to-peer architecture with linear scalability and parallel processing with no single point of failure or need for a centralised control/data server. The built-in reliability of the queuing system means that messages are never lost.

Powerful service deployment and runtime control

The solution processes can be deployed across multiple machines and integrated event-interception provides runtime debugging from within the graphical studio, regardless of how the processes are distributed. There is also a centralised web-based console to monitor, audit and manage solutions.

Business Process Management

Existing or new business processes that require human interaction and complex rule processing for decisions can be mapped and then integrated into a solution.


Fiorano Software intergrates with existing security implementations and standards.

Standards based Service Oriented Architecture (SOA)

The SOA can mediate between multiple standard protocols, e.g.: HTTP, SOAP, REST, LLP, FTP, SMTP, JMS, MSMQ.
