What is EHR Integration?
EHR integration is the partnership between providers, payers, vendors, and other players that brings the data or function from one application or program to that of another. Because of the sheer quantity and diversity of data, healthcare providers face major obstacles in integrating and effectively analyzing healthcare information.Learn more about EHR integration

Compliance is a requirement for all data exchange. Never worry about it again.
Security baked-in from the start
HL7, FHIR, APIs—security is inherently unavailable. We add a security layer to your integration.

The future of healthcare data exchange is FHIR. You are ready for the switch when it happens.
Mission critical data has important uptime requirements. Datica monitors the connection for you.
The hard work to ensuring cloud-based infrastructure is highly available 24/7 is done for you.
Open source transformations
You own your transformations because we use open source Mirth as the interface engine.
One REST API for all your connections
Full-Stack Data Integration
The mature integration stack considers HIPAA compliance, data security, redundant backups, and no reliance on black box proprietary APIs as core ingredients to a successful integration strategy.
Don't get caught with infrastructure gotchas as you go from zero-to-one or if you are preparing to scale to hundreds of integrations. Instead, get Datica CMI.

Get back to solving problems for heathcare
In the past, EHR integration projects have been frustrating obstacles for innovation teams, preventing them from creating breakthrough solutions for overwhelmed medical professionals.
Imagine being free to focus on solving problems again, instead of the worry and cost of integrating your solution with your EHR.
Integrating with EHRs is an ongoing challenge for digital health solutions. EHR integration is not just a technology problem, it’s also a people and process problem.
Healthcare integration projects can have many hidden pitfalls and unexpected challenges. Datica can help your team visualize the way forward, refine project scope, and bring our deep knowledge of health systems to bear by making our experts available to help you work with all the players involved.

Our team of project managers provide an expert view into integrated with EHRs and health systems. They will help manage timelines, create project plans, and track deliverables.
Connection Setup and Maintenance
Datica’s Integration Engineers will build, configure, test and maintain VPN connections to allow for transmission of HL7 messages.
Interface Build and Configuration
We will transform HL7 messages into JSON or FHIR messages to help keep things standard for you across implementations. We have many predesigned channels ready to go.

Mastering Integration Challenges
Any time you find a resource that understands Epic, like Mark and his team do, you are more likely to meet your desired project goals.
At some point, we realized, it’s not worth it to do ourselves; we should just scale with Datica.
Even if we had spent the money to build in-house, integrating would have taken us three to six months compared to just a week using Datica.
Datica surprised us when they proposed a customized solution; with our previous hosting company it was always – ‘take it or leave it.’

Frequently asked questions about integrations
- Do you integrate with [EHR]?
Datica has live, active integrations with 27 of the top 35 EHRs. More projects are planned to bring us closer to live integrations with the top 40. If you are needing integration services outside of that list, chances are we can still help you.
- Do you integrate with [data standard]?
Datica has live integrations with almost every main data standard you can think of. There are some we are more proficient in than others—e.g. we have more integrations for HL7 with hospitals than we do for Claims with clearinghouses—but if there is a specific technology you are curious about, contact us.
- If I complete an Epic (or Cerner, or...) integration with Datica, does that mean I get access to all Epic (or Cerner, or...) customers?
No. Healthcare integrations are inherently point-to-point. You will integrate with a specific site’s version of an EHR. It is a myth that you can connect once into an EHR and get access to their customer base.
- Does Datica provide sandboxes for integrations?
We provide open APIs that anyone can test against. Those are found at hl7.datica.com and fhir.datica.com. Beyond that, extra requirements are scoped out with Datica’s Services team for an additional cost.
- Does Datica help with testing an integration?
We most definitely do! Customers can engage with our Managed Integration services.
- Does Datica help stress-test my integration?
Part of Datica’s Managed Integration service is to help scope out expected message volume and work with customers accordingly on setting up their environment to support that.
- How many messages per second can Datica's integration stack handle?
The base product can handle close to 50msg/s. Supporting higher frequency of messages is as easy as dedicating more resources to the integration environment.
- Can Datica help with Single-Sign-On within an EHR integration?
Potentially yes. It will depend on your type of integration. You will want to engage with our Managed Integration services to determine fit.
