MDI Solutions responded to Tarrant County’s RFP for HL7 compliant software. The key component of the bid proposal was a requirement to provide a means of transmitting and receiving public health information (adhering to HIPAA compliant protocols) for the Public Health Immunization Registry (TCIR) system. MDI Solutions won the bid based on the ease-of-use of their MD Link interface engine and experience developing similar interfaces. The other MDI developed interfaces included:
- *East Texas Medical Center Regional Healthcare System – immunization and laboratory results to Texas Department of State Health (DSHS)
- *Hilo Medical Center and Hawaii Health – created custom code to exchange data via HHIE Medicity Immunization Reporting Gateway interface
- *California Immunization Registry – immunization and laboratory results integration
