InterSystems demonstrates latest version of its post-relational database software

Eton, UK – March 4, 2002 – InterSystems reports that 90 percent of the top 3-star NHS Trusts depend on its technology. As the company has 23 years experience of supporting the development of proven healthcare solutions, this figure should come as no surprise.

Visitors to the InterSystems stand (C31) at this year’s healthcare show in Harrogate will be able to hear first-hand about InterSystems’ flagship database, Cache, that combines special features for Web-enabled applications with its well-proven high- performance capabilities. Developers can discuss how working applications can be created within minutes. Those who register will receive a free Caché single-user unrestricted CD-ROM and free technical support on how to make applications faster.

Director of Marketing Mike Fuller said that InterSystems technology is the engine for applications used by many of the world’s leading healthcare IT solutions providers such as EMIS, EuroKing Miracle, Misys, JAC Computer Services Ltd, Torex Health, McKesson, Trak Health, EDS Healthcare and iSoft.

“Caché provides the ideal remedy for performance and interconnectivity problems faced by healthcare organisations,” he explained. “Its multidimensional engine means that users can store multiple types and pieces of data about a patient such as lab results, doctors notes, and X-rays in an accessible form, enabling in-depth information to be found quickly and easily reviewed. This benefit is the core to the provision of electronic patient records in integrated healthcare solutions that deliver across the whole continuum of care.

“Reliability and performance are absolutely crucial in health service applications,” he continued. “As a result, the database used in a healthcare solution in particular, needs to be able to express complex data relationships and yet be easy to use – this is Cache’s forté ”

Developers who would like to try Caché can download a free single licence version from the InterSystems Website:
