This 5-day course teaches implementation partners and healthcare customers how to use InterSystems’ integration and development environment to rapidly build healthcare integration solutions. The course includes how to build custom Business Services, Business Processes, Business Operations and messages as well as how to work with pre-built components.

Students build healthcare Productions using graphical modeling tools, Business Process Language (BPL) and ObjectScript to implement business logic. Later, students include pre-built HL7 Business Services, Business Processes, Business Operations and route messages in the Production.

This course is applicable for users of Ensemble and HealthShare.
