Interoperability is one of challenges in health informatics and there are many tools on the market to help informaticians break down silos of information and integrate them for the benefit of patient care. This paper aims to evaluate tools for healthcare interoperability, both open-source (Mirth Connect) and commercial (JAVA CAPS â Oracle Corporation, CA) to point out the benefits and risks including recommendations on how to get started if one would like to adopt such tools. There are 2 phases of the evaluation. The first phase focuses on data gathering and analysis and the second phase emphasizes an experimental study of the toolsâ efficiency. The result is that Mirth Connect is easier to learn and use while Java CAPS has more enterprise features and functions. The author recommends Mirth Connect as a solution to implement nationwide in developing countries.
