Partners HealthCare will adopt InterSystems' enterprise platform to integrate its clinical and financial platforms into a single EHR system. The interoperability effort will boost Partners HealthCare's plan to coordinate care and lessen unnecessary testing. "Partners is redesigning care delivery to improve the health of our patients while improving the affordability of care. Achieving these goals requires a level of coordination and standardization across Partners that cannot be supported by a 'patchwork quilt' of disparate information systems," said Partners HealthCare Chief Technology Officer Steven Flammini.
