Evaluation Tied to Completeness of Vision, Ability to Execute in Global Market
CAMBRIDGE, Mass.—September 22, 2011— InterSystems Corporation, a global leader in software for connected care, announced today that it has been positioned in the Visionaries quadrant of Gartner, Inc.’s Magic Quadrant for Global Enterprise EHR Systems.1 The InterSystems TrakCare™ Web-based, unified healthcare information system was reviewed by Gartner for this report.
“With rising pressure to cut healthcare costs, while enhancing the quality of care, private and government-owned healthcare delivery organizations (HDOs) are increasingly implementing clinical automation solutions, especially enterprise EHR systems,” according to Gartner. “We believe that integrated EHRs will prevail, but it will take time,” Gartner observed. In addition, the analyst firm pointed out that “HDOs seeking an enterprise EHR system have qualitatively better options to choose from today than previously.”
Vendors were evaluated based on their vision and ability to execute in the global market, according to the report.
TrakCare’s market presence includes installations in more than 25 countries, including the U.K., Italy, the Gulf region, India, China, Thailand, Australia, Brazil and Chile. It is not offered in the United States. TrakCare is being used in a wide range of initiatives by leading healthcare organizations. Typical examples include nationwide implementations in Scotland and Chile, statewide implementations in Victoria, Australia and Brasilia, Brazil and organization-wide implementations at Bangkok Dusit Medical Services in Thailand, Manipal Hospitals in India and Albert Einstein Hospital in Brazil. TrakCare is a multi-language, multi-currency system that is uniquely adaptable to varying healthcare delivery approaches and comes pre-configured for local markets.
