CollabNet, a provider of enterprise cloud development and Agile (News - Alert) ALM products and services, announced it has been selected by Alembic Foundation to support an open source healthcare project by Aurion.
Aurion is a product of the Alembic Foundation, a nonprofit organization founded by leaders of the Federal Health Architecture's CONNECT project, and allows the secure exchange of interoperable health information among diverse organizations using a wide variety of technologies.
Aurion lets health professionals request, send and receive medical records, so patients can gain critical information as they navigate the healthcare system.
"CollabNet is pleased that TeamForge has been chosen by the Alembic Foundation to lead its effort of building a robust open community and development ecosystem around the Aurion healthcare platform," said Bill Portelli, co-founder and CEO of CollabNet.
CollabNet's TeamForge platform offers a set of development, collaboration and project management tools. The specialty of these tools is the secure, centralized on-demand delivery model to enable true collaborative development in an open, global environment – ideal for supporting a vibrant open source community.
Several commercial and governmental organizations use TeamForge for the development of HealthCare IT systems and national standards. The platform is consistent with many other national health initiatives.
According to Portelli, TeamForge helps the Aurion community build a powerful, open source offering for developing common specifications, standards and governance that enable secure health information exchange.
"Organizations implementing Aurion as a part of their health information exchange strategy gain the benefits of implementing nationally-recognized standards that allow data exchange with federal agencies as well as with numerous other health IT stakeholders," said David Riley, president of Alembic.
"CollabNet has and continues to play an integral role in ensuring our projects are successful and reach as many organizations as possible,” Riley added. “We are very grateful for their support and the rich expertise they share in building advanced healthcare IT systems."
Earlier this year, CloudBees, a Java Platform as a Service (PaaS) innovation leader, announced the Codesion cloud development platform from CollabNet is now offered as part of the CloudBees Partner Ecosystem.
