Neuron ESB, an application, service and workflow integration platform, announced today its selection by The Fortune Society, a not-for-profit organization dedicated to educating the public about the criminal justice system and supporting individuals in successful re-entry into society from prison. Capitalizing on Neuron ESB as a general purpose integration hub between internal and external systems, The Fortune Society is facilitating better access for its clients to social services such as job training, education, healthcare and housing. As a robust integration platform optimized for the .NET environment, Neuron ESB enables The Fortune Society to better accommodate an increasing number of external systems, data points and reporting requirements for grants, public funding and program development.

“To provide ideal services, we must create a holistic, data-centric view of our clients, yet many of the external systems that are so critical to their success were not originally designed with integration in mind. Neuron ESB is a smart, flexible tool that lets us solve this challenge in a familiar.NET development environment, managing existing integrations as well as establishing a foundation to handle a growing number of external systems and types of data,” said Marc Piparo, Chief Technology Officer, The Fortune Society. “With Neuron ESB, we are now able to onboard new systems with much more efficiency – improving client access to services, streamlining operations and transforming data quickly and easily.”

The implementation of Neuron ESB adds essential value to The Fortune Society’s advocacy efforts, helping focus their activities based on better data visualization of client needs and results. For example, electronic health records (EHR) are a major point of integration for The Fortune Society; through the Neuron ESB platform, this behavioral and physical health data can be shared effectively with the state of New York’s Health Information Exchange (HIE), a regional health record hub, to optimize reimbursements, anticipate care needs and costs, and have real-world impact on Medicaid redesign.

Neuron ESB will also help The Fortune Society centralize client data into a data warehouse with selected business intelligence tools, analytics and dashboards. The platform enables all client and system data to be available in a single report, reducing data reporting demands and enabling instant insight into programs, services, results and client assessments.

“Smart data integration offers real value in the face of increased reporting requirements that characterize The Fortune Society’s operations. By tapping Neuron ESB as an intuitive and flexible integration platform, the organization can now optimize the movement of data for a diverse collection of stakeholders, eliminate third-party consultants and simultaneously lighten the load on its development team,” said Marty Wasznicky, Vice President, Neuron ESB.
