Transforms By Example - delivering high quality healthcare data transforms for less cost

Transforms By Example in Healthcare

Transforms By Example (TBE) is a radically new way of developing data transforms. It can dramatically reduce the costs of healthcare interoperability, while improving quality and maintainability of data transforms.

To deliver better patient care within squeezed budgets, there is an urgent need to increase the level of integration of healthcare IT applications. This requires linking and sharing their data, through standards such as HL7 FHIR, HL7 Version 2 and OpenEHR. TBE has been developed to do this at greatly reduced costs

With Transforms By Example, you do not write code or make mappings. You simply construct a small set of good examples of the transform you require - the source, and the target the transform is required to produce. Then, the TBE tools generate the transform software, and run tests automatically. Transforms are delivered in Java.

By cutting out most of the design and coding of transform software, TBE dramatically reduces costs, and improves reusability - but retains the full flexibility of hand-coded transforms. You can also reverse-engineer legacy healthcare data transforms into the open, maintainable form of TBE.

TBE is to be offered for use by NHS organisations under the Code4Health initiative
