Description: International Business Machines (IBM) App Connect for Healthcare builds on IBM Integration Bus to provide support for applications deployed in healthcare environments. This technology provides message models used to parse, route, and transform Health Level 7 (HL7) messages, input and output nodes for integrating HL7 clinical applications, and integration with medical devices, to capture data. International Business Machines (IBM) Integration Bus Healthcare Pack also integrates with Picture Archiving Communication Systems (PACS) with Digital Imaging and Communication in Medicine (DICOM) so users can locate, process, and transfer DICOM images using message flows.

Note: This technology has been rebranded from Integration Bus Healthcare Pack to App Connect Enterprise Software starting with version 11.

This technology does not typically utilize a database to store data. However, this technology includes functionality to use databases that are associated with a PACS, Electronic Medical Record (EMR) system, or one specified by the IBM Integration Bus technology where this technology is deployed.
