The versatile communications platform gateway4med is a high-performance system which manages and simplifies information exchanges between different IT systems in medicine. As networking and the use of different communications standards continue to expand in healthcare, there is a concomitant and growing need for a bridging tool that can translate messages from one system into ones readable in another to support the flow of information and make it readily available for use in the receiver system. Its comprehensive documentation facility follows information streams so that causes can be traced quickly if errors occur. This gives users greater oversight. gateway4med performs this role and acts more or less as a translator between systems that otherwise cannot intercommunicate directly. It receives and modifies messages and forwards them in the required format to the receiver system. Its comprehensive documentation facility both reveals and clarifies information streams so that causes can be traced faster if errors occur. This gives users greater and better oversight.
