Chicago-based Initiate Systems, Inc. has successfully integrated its software with the Federal Health Architecture’s CONNECT Gateway.

According to the company, Initiate’s patient registry, part of the Initiate Interoperable Health solution, is among the first products to demonstrate interoperability with the Gateway. Its patient registry technology integrates with the open-source architecture, using Web service technology and HL7 standards, says the company.

Initiate successfully completed tests with the CONNECT Gateway’s Subject Discovery Service, which locates patients based on demographic information, and completed interactions needed to locate and return patient information requested by a peer from the NHIN network.

According to the Department of Health and Human Services, the CONNECT Gateway is designed to enable public and private health information technology systems to communicate with each other through health information exchanges using Nationwide Health Information Network specifications and conventions. The CONNECT software was released as open source technology by the Office of the National Coordinator in April 2009, it says.
