InterSystems will work with Epic to consolidate clinical and financial IT system-wide

Partners HealthCare is once again looking across the Charles River to Cambridge, Mass.-based InterSystems, enlisting the company to replace several existing integration engines and enable the health system to consolidate its financial and clinical technologies onto one electronic health record platform.

Partners has long partnered with InterSystems, whose Caché database system powers its EHR system and hundreds of applications used by thousands of clinicians throughout its network. Moreover, Partners' use of the InterSystems Ensemble rapid integration software has enabled smooth integration of its library of services and applications, officials say.
