  • Industry-leading interface engine, easy to implement and manage
  • Role-based access control, standard alert functionality, and enhanced monitoring and troubleshooting capabilities

What Awaits You at Base Camp

To set a strong, highly scalable foundation for your rise to peak performance, Base Camp Includes:


We build an interface from each of your systems to the engine itself, creating the framework that manages data flows, provides essential alerting functionality, and powers the additional modules of Ascent. Connection and data types include but are not limited to:

  • TCP, MLLP, HTTP, FTP, SQL, JMS, File System
  • API along with web services: SOAP and REST
  • XML, HL7, CCD/CCDA FHIR, DICOM, NCPDP, X12, Delimited Text, Raw Binary


Base Camp’s Monitor module enhances role-based monitoring, empowering non-technical users to troubleshoot flow without the ability to modify configurations. Monitor makes it easy to sort and search data by IP/port, queues, or date/time for quick resolution of issues, plus:

  • Search logs for specific messages
  • View engine health and system status
  • Accelerate resolution of reported issues with efficient restarting and troubleshooting processes

Everything you need, all in one place

From 20 years of experience, innovation and success, we’ve proven to our clients time and again that there is no HIT integration challenge we cannot solve.

Whether we are supporting your needs on or off the Ascent platform, you can count on our amazing team of engineers, project managers, consultants and advisors to help you get where you need to be. See what we mean:

“Shasta Networks has provided us with a very cost-effective, full-service solution that allows us to meet the requests of our customers to have test results passed to them electronically. Overall, the solution has been instrumental in enabling us to compete with larger providers.”

— Melissa Sittason, System Manager, Pathology Associates (Laboratory)

“Jacek and his team at Shasta Networks have been incredible to work with. John and Matt were remarkably helpful in channel development standardization to fit some server logistic changes within our environment on a tight timeline. The team was incredibly responsive and professional, often making suggestions outside the scope of our plan to ensure that we accounted for future changes. All work was well documented and delivered as requested.”

— Tony Sciarini, Interface Engineer, MedQuest Associates (Imaging Centers)

“Our staff cannot improve residents’ quality of life by filling out spreadsheets, so automation was the clear answer. With the administrative labor savings, we will achieve full return on our investment with Shasta Networks in a few months – but the ability to keep staff focused on projects that enhance outcomes and experiences, that’s where the real value comes in.”

— Aaron Fields, Chief Information Officer, St. Ann’s Community (Long-Term Care)
