US News & World Report Issues 1998 Hospital Honor Roll

CAMBRIDGE, MA— July 27, 1998—All of the hospitals ranked in the top 10 in U.S. News & World Report magazine’s 1998 annual hospital survey use InterSystems Corporation’s database technology, InterSystems announced today.

“We are pleased to note that, again this year, the top 10 hospitals on the U.S. News & World Report ‘Best Hospitals Honor Roll’ are all using DBMS technology from InterSystems,” says Paul Grabscheid, vice president of strategic planning. “These healthcare institutions, with world-class reputations for excellence, use the best tools available to maintain their preeminence.
