Healthcare interoperability solution provider Lyniate has teamed up with RPA Health to provide Robotic Processing Automation (RPA) technologies to NHS Trusts, private hospitals, social care providers and healthcare software suppliers across the UK and Ireland.

The aim of the partnership is to provide connectivity between Lyniate’s interoperability solutions and RPA Health’s processing solution in healthcare. As part of the partnership, Lyniate and RPA Health will refer customers to one another as appropriate.

Drew Ivan, chief product and strategy officer at Lyniate, said: “This partnership allows Lyniate to provide its customers with proven, cost-saving RPA solutions that complement our robust interoperability platforms.

“It is also worth noting that RPA technology has the ability to provide ‘last mile’ connectivity to legacy applications which are all but impervious to APIs.

“Given the compelling need to provide digital connectivity to legacy systems that are used in some care homes and some social provider organisations, RPA can offer a cost-effective solution to the challenges of joined-up care.”

Lyniate provides interoperability solutions through the Rhapsody and Corepoint integration engines, which allow systems to read, interpret, and assimilate data from disparate sources.

While RPA Health provides RPA design, turnkey solutions and RPA technology licencing and training for healthcare provider organisations and application developers.

John Moriarty, RPA Health’s CEO, added: “We are very excited to partner with Lyniate, whose award-winning interoperability platforms set the standard for integration excellence.

“Our partnership allows healthcare providers greater access to cost-effective RPA solutions that ease the challenging administrative burden brought on by Covid-19.”
