Intersystems Ensemble integrated into Calif. healthcare network
InterSystems has completed an enterprise-scale integration initiative at Stanford Hospital and Clinics (SHC) in Stanford, Calif., from integration software to the InterSystems Ensemble platform.

According to the Cambridge, Mass.-based Intersystems, SHC is now processing more than 2.2 million HL7 messaging transactions on a daily basis. The transition to Ensemble for SHC began with integrating clinical applications to the hospital’s EpicCare EMR system; built on the InterSystems Cache object database. Integration of administrative and financial systems including billing, claims and patient registration came next.

SHC now exchanges electronic data interchange and HL7 transactions with its business partners via Ensemble. Plans are to continue to add new health information exchange initiatives and to focus on using Ensemble as a component of SHC’s service-oriented architecture strategy, Intersystems stated.
