Foresight launches Studio workflow automation facility
Single, simplified interface makes it easy to set up organizationâ€™s EDI front door and collect information for real-time business intelligence
Columbus, OH, April 5, 2005 â€“Health care organizations can now easily develop and configure workflow models for incoming and outgoing electronic transactions and extract critical operational information from them using Foresight Corporationâ€™s new Studio workflow automation facility. Studio, in general release today, is a unified interface that brings â€œdrag and dropâ€ automation to the job of managing health care transaction flow and integration of Foresightâ€™s Transaction Insight™ business intelligence application into the customerâ€™s technology environment.

Studioâ€™s Workflow Editor allows users to select processes and drag and drop them onto the workflow panel. There, they can customize the processesâ€™ operations, link them to define which process is executed in which order and where transactions are routed, and put the new system into operation. â€œStudio can manage multiple environments from a single workstation, including development, quality assurance, staging, and production systems,â€ Hafner said.
Studio also gives users the power to:
