Cerner announced on 10/19/2018 that it has released Soarian Financials public web services for 3rd party applications. Many tasks that EMUE is currently doing through the user interface can now be done via web services.
Depending on the type of workflow, EMUE can usually process 1 transaction every minute. More complex workflows can sometimes take up to 2 to 3 minutes. With web services, Cerner is offering transaction rates of 100 per minute. It’s easy to see why you would want to take advantage of them.
Another advantage is that with EMUE is that you can combine both technologies to improve your current workflows. Services are continuing to be developed, but the available services won’t address all your workflow needs. Use the services where available and use UI automation to fill in the gaps.
There is an implementation process that must be followed to get the web services. Please review the Implementation Considerations to begin the process. A minimum version of 4.2.200 SP2 for Soarian Financials is required as well as an EMUE web services connector.
To learn more about utilizing web services with EMUE, contact Mike Burhans at 607-257-5433 x157 or firstname.lastname@example.org
