Auriga Releases Open-Source HL7 Library

The amount of patient data generated by various medical devices, wearables, and healthcare apps grows every day. However, hospitals can make use of all this information only in case when their devices and software systems communicate via a common protocol. One of such protocols that allow healthcare apps to securely exchange sensitive patient clinical data with each other is Health Level 7 (HL7), – a globally accepted, widely accredited, and one of the most commonly used set of interoperability standards in the world.

Auriga has strived to become part of the HL7 expert community and enhance its expertise in health data interoperability. A year ago, Auriga launched a new in-house initiative on the development of an open-source library to provide interoperability for medical devices based on the HL7 protocol. In December 2016, our engineers finally released the solution. Continue reading

HL7 Security Issues – How to Protect Patient Data

With the rapid progress of informatization, data protection has come to the fore, and especially stringent requirements are rightly imposed for the protection of health information. The recently developed protocols already correspond to the new requirements. But what about long-in-the-tooth systems, dinosaurs of the times when no one thought that patient data would be of interest to hackers? Developers working with such systems cannot always use the latest versions of protocols; however, this does not mean that data protection is impossible. Continue reading
