InterSystems
InterSystems HealthShare is an extremely powerful platform for which we have not found a need it cannot meet. Granted, some particular complex solutions may require a bit more 'engineering' level talent than some healthcare organizations staff in their traditional 'interface departments'. Organizations that make the investment in InterSystems AND their staff through training and empowerment of bettering their career will rapidly reap the rewards of a robust integration foundation with support for rapidly increasing the organization's ability to action their data using analytics, natural language processing, machine learning and business process orchestration. Through HealthShare, I have been able to harvest key business and clinical metrics rapidly from plain text blobs into discrete data elements, empowering our analytic users, reducing manual data entry and bettering the lives of our most important customer - the patient.

  • A wealth of specific integration adaptors provided with the product, allowing for rapid low-code integrations for a myriad of use-cases.
  • Most InterSystems provided functionality delivered with the product can be review and extended to allow for rapid development of custom solutions for adaptors and tools not met out-of-the-box.
  • Continual timely releases ensure organizations can keep up to date with the rapidly changing healthcare integration space, while trusting that upgrades do not mean months of testing and validation. Most major upgrades can be completed within a few weeks of simple unit testing.

Cons
Google
  • Ability to upload GPX tracks.
  • privacy protection to it’s customers.
  • Some of these locations and your biometric response you may be ok with Google knowing so that it can personalize your ads, but in many cases you may not want your activities tracked. It would be good for Fitbit to give its customers the power inside the mobile app to sort and allow which data is uploaded to it’s cloud before it leaves their device.

InterSystems
  • Improvements to built in REST, SOAP and FHIR adapters to allow for low-code solutions against modern integration web service APIs.
  • Terminology engine improvements to provide auto-mapping against the plethora of terminology datasets required by FHIR and US CDI standards.
  • Tighter integration with Git/GitHub and similar platforms to enable Continuous Integration and Development models out of the box not only for general developers but healthcare integrators.

The Fitbit is a complement and enhancement at the same time with those products.

InterSystems
InterSystems HealthShare is not your standard integration platform. While the Health Connect product could be construed as an 'interface engine', it is so much more. The capabilities to extend the engine using low code and visual business process modeling ensures a wealth of use cases not covered by a traditional interface engine. Furthermore, while not a direct competitor of Epic (Epic is in fact an InterSystems customer themselves), we are far more comfortable relying on the robustness of the HealthShare platform for complex integrations, data modeling and data normalization using HealthShare than just Bridges and Interconnect alone.

InterSystems
  • Simple integration development time has been reduced from weeks to days.
  • Complex integration development time has been reduced from months to weeks.
  • On-call Support after-hours for the integration team has been nearly non-existent since the move to InterSystems, increasing employee retention and satisfaction as InterSystems 'just works'.
  • Less need to purchase other products to implement complex integrations through web service APIs and SQL ETL processes - it can all be done with InterSystems.
