1. A system comprising:

  • a plurality of data systems, each of the plurality of data systems including a respective interface module in communication with a core via a communication system, and being configured to;

    receive a first external message associated with a first patient from an external data system associated with a first medical device in a first native message format of an external data system associated with the first medical device;

    filter information of the first external message to identify a second portion of the first external message;

    convert the second portion into a first internal message in an internal messaging format having a different field structure than the first native message format, the different field structure including having a first single field split into separate fields and having multiple fields concatenated into a second single field;

    receive a second external message associated with a second patient from an external data system associated with a second medical device in a second native message format of the external data system associated with the second medical device;

    convert at least a portion of the second external message into a second internal message in the internal messaging format; and

    provide the first internal message and the second internal messages associated with the first and second patients to the core coupled to respective interface modules of the plurality of data systems,receive a third internal message in the internal messaging format;

    convert the third internal message into the first native message format of the external data system associated with the first medical device;

    provide the third internal message to the external data system associated with the first medical device,wherein the communication system comprises at least one plug-in point at which at least one of the first internal message and the second internal message are accessible by at least one of an interceptor and a custom processing module, wherein the interceptor is configured to process messages in the internal message format, and the core is further configured to transfer the first internal message and the second internal messages associated with the first and second patients to other interface modules based on information provided by the respective interface module.
