Overall Satisfaction with InterSystems IRIS

In my company, we are using Intersystems IRIS as integration platform, usign HL7 message from laboratories and process them in a unique point to process all of them. Each laboratories connect with his reports of patients, and integrate within the insurance database. I don't need an extra application to operate. I can integrate a new laboratory in few minutes.
Also, we use IRIS as REST API server to connect to insurance information (patient, reports, etc..) and it adds an extra security for confidential data.
  • Quick integration with HL7.
  • Provides a robust platform for API REST.
  • Quick access for database.
  • High security, integrate OAuth, internal user and password access, etc.
  • Complex language to develop.
  • Needs a special staff to manage as administrator.
  • A lot of security via roles that is could be a bit complex.
  • Time to integrate new customer: (Before: 40h, after: 2h) - The develop time is reduced to 95%. So we can integrate more customers in less time.
We used Mirth Connect to integrate laboratories, but each integration was very complex, we need to develop each integration newly and define ALL HL7 map. It was using a java code to integerate a TCP interface... everything was created. Now, all of then is part of the server so we only need to configurate and it works very quick.
The interface is very intuitive, the documentation is very good so it is not complicated to operate.
The security is complex, but you can create a special role to access and the user ONLY can operate with the part that it allows.
Also, you can examine the data very quick with the SQL Browser integrated.

The support team is the best in the world. All you need they can help you. The documentation is very good, but the support team can help you in less than 24h (some hours if it's very urgent).
Also, there is a great developers team in a good community that can help you in several languages (English, Spanish, Japanese, Portuguese, etc.).

Well suited
All about integration, HL7 or FHIR. Don't need to develop extra code because the most used is integrated and is very easy to use.

Less appropriate
Use as html server and display pages. The pages code is very complex, if you want to use to display html pages or create a web application, it's better to use other language (such as Angular) and try to integrate the code.
