InterSystems: accelerating UHSFT’s digital transformation

InterSystem’s David Hancock discusses how the company supports the University Southampton NHS Foundation Trust with its digital transformation

With its HealthShare platform, InterSystems connects providers, patients, and payers through a unified care record, and analytics that span the care continuum.

HealthShare was named a KLAS Category Leader for 2019 and 2020 and also received an exceptional 91/100 approval rating based on customer feedback.

By bringing together information from across the entire health and care system in real-time, HealthShare eliminates the blind spots that lead to gaps in care, missed opportunities, and dangerous and expensive duplication.

This platform creates a unified, community-wide health record as the foundation for coordinated, value-based care and population health management. It has flexible deployment options and with its HealthShare platform, InterSystems ensures that all options meet the highest standards for reliability, performance, security, and customer support.

David Hancock, Healthcare Executive Advisor at InterSystems explained how he works to support the healthcare industry through InterSystems: “I work with our customers on how they're able to successfully adopt integration and interoperability solutions into their operations as part of their digital transformation programmes.”

“InterSystems is a major supplier to the NHS around integration and interoperability as well as specific data platforms and electronic patient records,” he added.

As it can be used across many industries, InterSystems’ technology is highly adaptable.

To support the University Hospital Southampton NHS Foundation Trust (UHSFT) on its journey towards digital transformation, InterSystems supplies the Trust with its technology.

Adrian Byrne, Chief Information Officer at UHSFT commented on the partnership: “We've been working together for a long time and we migrated from other integration technology into the InterSystems suite.”

Byrne also explained how the Trust utilises the HealthShare platform: “It sits at the centre of all of our systems. It deals with all of our standard space messaging, plus some proprietary things that we built.”

Outlining the partnership, Hancock said: “What we've been able to do as part of University Hospital Southampton’s digital strategy is to help it integrate its solutions. If you're going to go with a number of different separate solutions, like UHSFT are, you need to integrate them together well.”

Adding to this, Hancock discussed the Trusts unique strategy: “The University Hospital Southampton has a quite distinctive digital strategy because of how it's going to be able to support the organisation. What Southampton has always done is work in a best of breed kind of way. UHSFT, rather than buying a single solution, is doing something more incrementally to retain control over some of the things it does.”
