Stargate FAQs

What Exactly is Zen Stargate?
Stargate is Zen’s proprietary implementation of CONNECT, a widely used open source XCA Gateway. Zen manages the software, provides a fully managed secure hosted infrastructure and provides the adapters to support integration with 3rd party systems that need to support query based exchange protocols. CONNECT is considered certified technology by eHealth Exchange.
How Does Stargate Save Money and Time on eHealth Exchange Onboarding?

Because Zen Stargate is based on certified technology (CONNECT), our clients are able to save money on eHealth exchange onboarding fees. Savings can be as much as $8,000. There is also time and resource savings when working with Zen including the ability to skip 19 required security tests.

What Role Does Stargate Serve in Relation to Commonwell?
Commonwell is now a Carequality implementer. Carequality Connections may exchange with Commonwell members who “opt in” to Carequality. Since Zen is a Carequality Implementer, Zen Stargate clients will be able to exchange data with any Commonwell participants that opt in to Carequality. If you elect to join Commonwell directly, Zen can assist with the underlying technology components if needed since Stargate XCA Gateway can be used in a variety of XCA based data exchange use cases.

3) Sign up with eHealth Exchange and pay applicable eHealth Exchange fees
4) Zen performs onboarding to eHealth Exchange

There are three easy steps to the process.

2) Integration is completed between your primary system (where your users will be interacting with the data) and Stargate
3) Zen performs onboarding to Carequality

Is it Possible to Leverage Stargate to Exchange Data Locally, Without Signing Up for a National Network?
Yes. Stargate supports any type of XCA based exchange, where you want to be able to query or be queried for clinical document exchange. (CCD/C-CDA). That includes local “ad hoc” type exchange. As long as you and your data exchange partner have a business agreement in place to exchange data, Zen can handle the underlying technology components.
