Interoperability

Nexus achieves smooth interoperability by connecting to other systems bidirectionally using a sophisticated, high-performance interface engine that supports almost any protocol used in our industry, including HL7, CSV, file pickups from SFTP, and data to and from secure endpoints. 

Data Exchange Your Way

The ability of major systems like Nexus to operate seamlessly in large enterprises depends on its ability to use data from other operational systems efficiently.  Some systems we have encountered in various enterprises are key to driving Nexus applications, such as:

  • Single Sign on and Active Directory for authentication and provisioning
  • Various Human Resources systems including PeopleSoft and Lawson
  • Patient Care systems including Epic and Cerner
  • Lab Information Systems such as Soft
  • Badging systems

A typical installation usually keeps employee information in several important systems that must be used to populate Nexus real-time, but also might require data to be pushed from Nexus, e.g. a regional clinical system. Nexus provides these capabilities through an interface engine called Nexus Service that handles many system-critical functions, one of which is the interface engine. Nexus Service is controlled by the Nexus process Manager which sets up rules and workflows for all sorts of activities.

Process Manager allows users to define periodic and chained operations within Nexus. This tool automates multiple simple and complex processes giving the user the power to execute application events, like automated email notifications, customized workflow steps, system health checks - virtually anything that can be expressed in code. The Process Manager extends and updates functionality in Nexus, helping an organization react to industry standards changes and organizational changes, like workflow modifications. The manager is a one-stop-shop for the scripting of a single or periodic events employing on-demand compilation of industry standard C# using a code editor built into the tool. Processes are able to fully utilize all existing tools in Nexus, and they can also be combined into a chain of events that execute in order or guided by Boolean logic within the processes. To further customize Nexus, any third party C# code or dynamic link library (DLL) can be used to extend the applications’ functionality, such as periodically pulling data from an external training system.

All of this translates to the ability to set up interfaces quickly, and react immediately to changes, for ingestion or output of formatted data that supports almost any protocol used in our industry, including HL7, CSV, file pickups from SFTP, and data to and from secure endpoints.
