Cambridge, Mass.—January 2, 2007 — InterSystems Corporation today announced that Lockheed Martin Canada has selected InterSystems’ Ensemble integration software for the Canadian Forces Health Information System (CFHIS). The CFHIS program, awarded to Lockheed Martin in 2002, is a 10-year $54.5M CDN effort designed to enable more than 2,500 Canadian Forces (CF) healthcare providers located in clinics across Canada to share information securely and coordinate care for approximately 85,000 regular and reserve force personnel worldwide.
InterSystems is a leading provider of innovative database and integration software. The InterSystems product line includes the CACHÉ post-relational database, Ensemble rapid integration software, and HealthShare health information exchange platform.
“Ensemble provides a comprehensive, robust, easily managed integration engine that offers the wide range of functionality needed to connect hospitals throughout Canada. This was a critical driver behind our selection of Ensemble for the CFHIS project,” said Jeet Sodhi, Lockheed Martin Program Manager. “Ensemble’s capabilities to enable ongoing application development for business activity monitoring and message traffic analysis also played an important role in our integration technology choice.”
The first program capabilities were introduced to CF medical and dental clinics at 38 locations throughout Canada earlier this year. Phase II of the program, which is now under way, involves introduction of administrative and clinical applications that will move the CF towards a fully integrated health management system.
“InterSystems has a proven track record of providing software technology that is being used successfully in government healthcare programs, including some of the largest, most complex electronic health record systems around the world,” said Trevor Matz, InterSystems Managing Director, Application Integration. “We are extremely pleased to partner with Lockheed Martin in providing software technology that enables easy access to critical patient data and supports top-tier care delivery.”
For over 25 years, InterSystems Corporation has been a technology innovation leader in database and integration software. The CACHÉ post-relational database, Ensemble rapid integration software and HealthShare health information exchange platform enable developers to quickly create, deploy and integrate high-performance systems. With world headquarters in Cambridge, Massachusetts, InterSystems has offices in 22 countries and provides support to customers in 88 countries.
InterSystems is a leader in integration technology and the world’s #1 database provider in healthcare, with its products used by most major hospitals and labs, including America’s 10 best hospitals as rated by U.S. News and World Report. For more information, visit www.InterSystems.com
