Initiate Systems Inc. of Chicago has teamed up with Santa Clara, Calif.-based Intel Corp. to offer Initiate Patient, a master data management software solution for healthcare enterprises, as a pre-validated integrated offering on the new Intel SOA Expressway for Healthcare.

By deploying Intel SOA Expressway for Healthcare, integrated delivery networks and health information networks can use the Initiate EMPI as a virtualized service in their SOA implementation, the companies tout.

The Intel SOA Expressway for Healthcare software facilitates the exchange of healthcare information inside hospitals and with health information networks. The companies say the product will allow healthcare providers to more easily connect with one another so that each can provide better care while benefiting from reduced integration costs. In its role as an EMPI provider within this framework, Initiate Patient delivers a comprehensive view of patients to registration staff, clinicians and other end-users, as well as clinical software applications.
