KAYSVILLE, Utah, September 1, 2014 – Qvera has successfully tested Qvera Interface Engine connectivity with The Mass HIway, connecting to the platform via its XDR services for Direct Secure Messaging. In addition to providing Qvera Interface Engine customers in the state of Massachusetts connectivity for Direct Secure Messaging, QIE also provides connectivity to The Mass HIway for immunization data.
Ron Shapiro, CTO at Qvera states, “We worked hard to meet all the unique security and connectivity requirements of The Mass HIway. Due to unique governmental regulations in the state of Massachusetts a standard XDR SOAP implementation was not possible. However, with the flexibility of the Qvera Interface Engine, we were able to configure a solution that meets the unique requirements of The Mass HIway platform. Our customers in Massachusetts are excited to finally be able to connect to the Mass HIway using automated workflows.”
