NEHII is migrating our core technology platform from Optum to InterSystems HealthShare. We’re making this change to ensure that NEHII is best positioned to deliver innovative services to you, such as unified health records and analytics.

Work is already underway.  In fact, several build components are in progress with the InterSystems team.  Many facilities have successfully connected to NEHII with their feeds via a VPN connection to InterSystems, and some current feeds have been migrated from Optum to InterSystems -- all in effort to move data to the new platform when ready for use. This allows for the connectivity to ensure that feeds and data are flowing properly. 

For current participants who have completed the VPN build, NEHII will work to set a date to migrate feeds from Optum to InterSystems.  NEHII users will continue using their Optum access to view patient records until the new clinical viewer within InterSystems is ready for use.  

We have communicated via email to the IT contacts we have on file for our current participants about the VPN and feed migration to InterSystems. If you have not received these communications or need these sent to a different person, please let us know by contacting  [email protected] . We would like to begin working through this process with your facility as soon as possible.

Start thinking about who you want to identify as a “designated user” from your facility. This person will be responsible for provisioning users with appropriate user access roles, password resets and de-provisioning users no longer requiring access.

We will continue providing updates via this newsletter and other communications channels. If you have questions, reach out to [email protected] and a team member will assist you.
