CitiusTech is a major healthcare technology and IT services ISV that uses business intelligence analytics, AI and machine learning to help customers reshape the way they deliver healthcare to patients.(1)

CitiusTech’s FAST+ solution is designed to help you drive Fast Healthcare Interoperability Resources (FHIR) adoption, use FHIR to enable digital strategies and accelerate CMS interoperability rule compliance activities.

CitiusTech collaborated with the IBM® Hybrid Cloud Build team to enhance their FAST+ product to identify and evaluate key resources utilized by the FHIR standard: Patient, Provider, Encounter, Diagnosis/Condition and Procedure and implement Identity and Access Management (IAM).

Collaborative results

The resulting solution used IBM Cloud® Paks to:
– Turn healthcare data into insights rapidly with IBM Cloud Pak for Data
– Transform core operations with intelligent automation with IBM Cloud Pak for Business Automation
– Integrate applications, data, cloud services and APIs with IBM Cloud Pak for Integration(1)

Issues of security, infrastructure sprawl and monitoring operations are all strong points where Cloud Paks shine.

IBM Hybrid Cloud Build Team

The IBM Hybrid Cloud Build Team helped CitiusTech design the solution and environment, create a continuous integration and continuous delivery (CI/CD) pipeline, containerize the solution using IBM WebSphere® Liberty and implement OAuth2. The team also provided training for CitiusTech developers. “We’ve had a great relationship with the IBM Hybrid Cloud Build Team—whether it be brainstorming or working closely on engineering, and with their support, we’ve been able to create the FAST+ cloud native solution from the ground up in a very short amount of time.” said Menon.

The IBM Hybrid Cloud Build Team is a body of deeply skilled IBM developers, architects and data scientists dedicated to helping ISVs and Global System Integrators (GSI) drive workload migrations and application modernization with IBM’s Hybrid Cloud and AI solutions. The team is ready to help GSI and ISV partners embrace Red Hat OpenShift on IBM Public Cloud. IBM Cloud Paks are AI-powered software for hybrid clouds that can help you fully implement intelligent workflows in your business to accelerate digital transformation.
