Dapasoft announced today that it has secured an investment from the York Angel Investors (YAI), representing the YAI’s largest deal ever. Dapasoft will use the additional funding to accelerate Corolar’s innovation and growth, and Dapasoft will offer a Microsoft cloud-based integration solution to be released by the end of 2015.
On June 2nd, Microsoft made one of its most significant announcements in its 30 year history in Canada – Microsoft will be offering cloud computing services on Canadian soil by opening data centers in Ontario and Quebec.
We are excited to announce that the Queensway Carleton Hospital (QCH) has selected Dapasoft’s Corolar to replace their current integration engine.
Servicing over 400,000 residents, with the help of over 1,900 healthcare professionals, QCH is currently expanding to fit the ever-growing needs of the residents in the Ottawa Valley. As a partner in delivering healthcare across the Champlain LHIN, QCH requires a solution that can reliably scale to a volume of over 2.5 million messages daily. It is also critical that their integration engine be flexible and adaptable to help support regional growth in the LHIN and respond to current and future provincial integration needs.
In order to support a rapidly growing population and a hospital staff of over 1,900, MSH migrated to a new Healthcare Information System (HIS), MEDITECH 6.0 from MEDITECH MAGIC, and required a flexible HL7 integration platform with the flexibility to develop new interfaces as MSH expands. MSH uses Dapasoft’s Corolar Integration Suite, built on Microsoft BizTalk 2013, to simplify and accelerate the integration of MEDITECH 6.0. The new solution helped MSH attain the highest Electronic Medical Record Adoption Model (EMRAM) score out of five hospitals in Canada that achieved the HIMSS Analytics stage 6 EMR adoption model.

We partnered with our long-term partner, Hamilton Health Sciences (HHS), on a project that enabled message transactions between MEDITECH and newly implemented EPIC in order to seamlessly track and manage patients during their treatment. Thanks to Dapasoft’s Corolar Integration Engine, healthcare providers from all departments now have real-time access to critical information on each patient from across the region, enhancing safety and reducing potential errors in the healthcare community.

It is estimated that 1.7 million hospital patients in the U.S. catch a Healthcare-Associated Infection (HAI) each year, resulting in 99,000 deaths. HAIs are the fifth-leading cause of death in U.S. acute-care hospitals and cost the health system up to $33 billion. HAIs are an incredibly vexing problem for hospitals yet despite the large amount of money invested into this issue, the numbers continue to rise. Infection Control Epidemiologist Colin Furness of Infonaut explains that approaching the problem with improved measurement to figure out the cause could assist in devising better methods of preventing and controlling infections.
We are excited to announce our participation at INTEGRATE – 2014, a global BizTalk Summit, hosted by Microsoft partner, BizTalk360. This event will primarily be Microsoft led, focusing on user experience with BizTalk for a variety of different industries.
Our memory isn’t entirely reliable and as most would say, it’s heavily influenced by our own subjective perception. But what happens when the treasure chest of data that you so deeply depend on, falters and is no longer an accurate reference of past events?
