WPC Acquires HL7 Accelerator to Ease Processing of Healthcare Data

BRENTWOOD, TN--(Marketwired - May 15, 2014) - WPC, a healthcare technology, business process consulting organization, today announced the acquisition of an HL7 accelerator toolset from Prosch Consulting. The toolset will allow WPC to assist clients in integrating clinical data, promoting health information exchange, and enabling care coordination activities supporting new care delivery models.

The WPC toolset simplifies HL7 transaction development, and it allows healthcare organizations to closely monitor HL7 transactions. The toolset enables WPC to take clinical data from different systems and integrate it in a clinical data warehouse so that it can be used for reporting.

WPC acquired the toolset from Prosch, a consulting firm that provides healthcare integration strategy consulting.
