Why Develop With Anything Less?

No other software platform has been so widely used and successfully deployed for HIT development. InterSystems IRIS for Health, a comprehensive, cloud-first data platform, along with its predecessors, is the basis for software that manages over a billion health records globally. It is at the heart of some of the most successful commercial healthcare solutions, like Epic’s EMR and 3M’s Encompass 360.

Some of the largest clinical laboratory companies in the world – companies like Sonic, Labcorp, and Bioreference – have based their internal management systems on our platform. It’s used by startups and long-established players as the basis for innovation, and by providers and payers for their own application development. It provides interoperability and connectivity for device makers like Guerbet and Roche Diagnostics. And we use it as the platform for InterSystems HealthShare and TrakCare.


No other software development platform supports more successful health information technology

A Development Platform Built by Health IT Developers for Health IT Developers

We listen to healthcare software developers, and you tell us things are different in healthcare. You need to understand complex regulations and privacy rules, and to make sure your software does as well. You need to keep up with new interoperability standards like FHIR – while still managing to historical standards. You tell us healthcare data, terminology, and data models require specialized knowledge, and that a unified data management platform specific to healthcare can make a real difference in your work.

But you also need the same things that matter to every application developer – performance, scalability, architectural flexibility, freedom of choice for languages and cloud service providers, and a strong developer community.

In short, you need InterSystems IRIS for Health, built specifically for healthcare application development by a team that builds, deploys, and supports healthcare applications at scale, around the globe.
