Collaboration to create advanced platform for healthcare data management, research and analytics
CAMBRIDGE, Mass., November 18, 2019 – InterSystems, a global leader in information technology platforms for health, business, and government applications, today announced that it is partnering with Virtusa Corporation, a global provider of digital strategy, digital engineering, and IT services and solutions, to enhance the healthcare data integration capabilities of its vLife™ life sciences platform.
Virtusa’s vLife, an Amazon Web Services (AWS) cloud-based technology, is a platform consisting of a comprehensive HIPAA-compliant data lake with multiple data sources, pre-built APIs, artificial intelligence (AI), and machine learning (ML) models. Additional visualization and predictive tools are also available for client subscription. With the native interoperability and integration foundation of the InterSystems IRIS for Health™ Data Platform, Virtusa customers can now more easily and effectively extend vLife’s capabilities to access patient data from electronic medical record (EMR) systems and other clinical applications. This will enable and support a broad range of analytics use cases for healthcare payers, life sciences and medtech companies.
“The healthcare industry is in the midst of a monumental shift from a fee-for-service to a fee-for-value reimbursement pay structure. Therefore, our focus is on helping our customers improve patient care while reducing cost through improved analytics,” said Anthony Lange, senior vice president of life sciences, Virtusa. “As a standalone platform, vLife provides superior support for research and training ML programs. But, to fully meet customer needs and expectations, we need to offer seamless access to real world clinical data for use in payer, life science, and medtech scenarios. InterSystems IRIS for Health makes that possible.”
InterSystems IRIS for Health is a unified data platform that combines analytical and transaction processing with native interoperability for all data types. With the ability to rapidly scale and manage both heterogeneous data and fast data, InterSystems IRIS for Health accelerates development cycles to meet the data demands of the modern healthcare organization. It enables users to create information-rich healthcare applications, more rapidly.
“We’re thrilled to work with Virtusa to securely collect, analyze, engage, and apply data to help drive positive patient outcomes,” said Don Woodlock, vice president of InterSystems HealthShare®. “The combination of InterSystems healthcare integration solutions and Virtusa’s vLife platform creates a superior platform for healthcare data management, research, and analytics.”
