Lyniate | September 30, 2021

Lyniate, the worldwide leader of healthcare data interoperability, today announced the introduction of Lyniate Rapid. Rapid is a purpose-built healthcare API gateway and manager designed to help health teams create and safeguard APIs, including Fast Healthcare Interoperability Resources (FHIR)-based APIs like those required by the CMS Interoperability and Patient Access Rule. Rapid enables teams to manage, monitor efficiency, and protect against cybersecurity threats related to patient data access, creating protection for vulnerable health information. Knowing that teams, across the care continuum, are under pressure to quickly modernize platforms, Rapid accelerates time to compliance with pre-built provider directory and patient data access APIs. Lyniate Rapid is easily compatible with Lyniate Rhapsody and Lyniate Corepoint, the company’s flagship integration engines. Rapid helps healthcare teams implement using Health Level 7 (HL7) FHIR. “Our team respects the history of healthcare interoperability, and we also encourage new approaches. With Rapid, we bring both to the table to help cover data and technology requirements so that each healthcare organization can focus on its business and deliver the best consumer experiences.” Scott Galbari, chief operating officer at Lyniate “We will continue to develop additional software and services to help customers meet compliance requirements as they are defined,” Galbari added. “We believe that some workflows are best addressed by transactional HL7 v2 messaging while other workflows are best addressed via API. Lyniate is a single trusted interoperability partner who meets the needs of both integration styles, giving teams the best experience and the most efficiency gain. Lyniate Rapid marks our continued commitment toward creating seamless, wide-spread data liquidity across the healthcare ecosystem.” Rapid can be quickly deployed, ensuring the flexibility to adapt to CMS and ONC compliance changes and meet regulatory requirements.
