MDI Solutions signs on for an additional 2 Word™ data conversion projects with Sunquest Information Systems in the United Kingdom.

The initial conversion project saw MD Link (MDI Solutions’ integration engine) set up to automatically convert Word based discharge summaries to HTML and embed the document in an HL7 message for transfer to Physician Office systems. Development and Implementation resources at MDI worked with Sunquest UK to design and develop a new ‘plug-in’ for MD Link that automated this process for UK based Hospitals and Trusts, thereby offering an alternative to fax or mail out of the documents. MDI and Sunquest will now be assisting an additional two trusts in the coming weeks to offer this specialized service.

Through this collaboration MDI and Sunquest have successfully responded to the national target to provide GPs with discharge summaries within 48 hours.
