EMC Healthcare selects InterSystems to digitise information

By Zach Thompson
Tue 15 Mar 2022

InterSystems has announced that EMC Healthcare has selected the company to digitise EMC’s healthcare information across its private hospital group.

The partnership will see InterSystems and EMC implement InterSystems TrakCare, a unified healthcare information system, across six hospitals to begin the group’s digital transformation.

The companies say TrakCare will allow cutting-edge patient care and experience through a single electronic medical record (EMR) system.

Additionally, InterSystems will provide software, services, maintenance and technology leadership.

EMC says TrakCare will help the company to offer patients the best clinical outcomes and safety with a seamless patient experience.

Patients will be able to visit any of EMC’s facilities, and their medical records will be instantly and securely accessible by whoever they see.

EMC notes patient wait times and the potential for errors will also be reduced because admission, laboratory, radiology, pharmacy, clinical and surgical departments will all be using the same system.

Allergies and medications will also be recorded, and clinicians alerted about potentially adverse events.

Furthermore, EMC will gain the ability to adopt new, digitally supported models of care.

For example, patients could continue to be treated in their homes for chronic medical conditions with remote monitoring devices connected to the TrakCare EMR system, potentially reducing hospital visits and improving the convenience of medical treatments whilst maintaining the clinicians’ personal involvement.

Moreover, utilising the TrakCare Personal Community patient engagement solution, patients and their families or carers will be able to access medical records, make appointments online, and take part in the care process.

“The future of healthcare is digital,” EMC Healthcare CEO Jusup Halimi says.

“Whether speeding up the patient’s journey, enabling treatment at home, or using the latest medical equipment and AI tools, data is central.

“That is why we are partnering with InterSystems, a global provider of advanced digital health technology, and transforming our hospital group.”

InterSystems has had a direct presence in Asia for more than 20 years ago, working with leading private hospital groups across the region, and in 2021, opened its sixth office in the area, in Singapore.

The companies say the partnership will also support EMC’s continued business expansion.

EMC can quickly establish TrakCare at new hospitals because it is a single system, and new facilities will be able to promptly meet government reporting requirements and integrate with social healthcare insurance systems.

“EMC Healthcare is taking a giant leap forward by becoming a digital hospital group,” InterSystems regional managing director Asia Pacific, Luciano Brustia, says.

“Using next generation digital healthcare technology, EMC will ensure that Indonesians can receive the highest standards of care with a strong focus on a personalised patient experience.”

“We are very excited to be working in a true partnership with EMC Healthcare,” said Brustia.

“Success in digital health requires trust and commitment. You can’t do it with just a few technology people. Everyone, from the boards down to the staff on the wards, need to work together as one team.”
