Orion Health, Inc. (Santa Monica, Calif.) and

Cisco (San Jose, Calif.) have introduced Rhapsody AXP, a solution designed to address challenges in public health reporting and to improve the detection, tracking and response to disease outbreaks such as seasonal or H1N1 flu.

According to the companies, the solution integrates the Cisco Application Extension Platform (AXP), Cisco Integrated Services Routers (ISRs) and the Orion Health Rhapsody platform to provide a pre-configured and secure public health reporting solution. Rhapsody AXP automates reporting by enabling the secure exchange of data, routing it within the hospital or clinic as well as between organizations, including the Centers for Disease Control.
