InterSystems Corporation has announced reseller agreements with two new InterSystems application partners. Management Information Tools, Inc. (MITS) and LifePoint Informatics have partnered to help medical laboratories provide timely, accurate reporting services to healthcare providers.
InterSystems develops database, integration, and business intelligence products. InterSystems CACHÉ is a highly scalable object database for transactional systems.
MITS develops and markets online analytical processing and business intelligence solutions. LifePoint's clients use its services to transmit lab test results and related data through software-as-a-service (SaaS) solutions developed and hosted by LifePoint. These web-based solutions are built on InterSystems CACHÉ. LifePoint has added MITS Report, an operational and ad hoc reporting solution designed for a wide range of MultiValue and relational databases, to its solution suite.
"LifePoint serves both medical providers and clinical medical laboratories," explains LifePoint CTO Preston Law. "We're in the business of exposing test results data, produced by the labs, to the health care providers." As a result, providers who once relied on fax and mail can now quickly obtain test results online.
In addition to individual test results, both labs and providers must analyze and report aggregated test and test results data for reasons ranging from trend analysis to Medicare reimbursement reporting. "That's why we've added the MITS Report capabilities to our offerings," says Law. "And, we're encouraged by early reaction to the new report capabilities."
"It is our first foray into our support for InterSystems CACHÉ," MITS president Fred Owen tells 5 Minute Briefing, explaining that the new LifePoint implementation leverages MITS Report's multi-platform support. According to Owen, the new LifePoint implementation also demonstrates a key attribute of MITS Report, which is the ease with which it can be private-labeled for resale and integration into other software solutions, as well as its high suitability for use in the SaaS solution delivery model.
The fact that InterSystems has such a strong customer base in the medical technology community is important for MITS as well, notes Owen. "We are happy to be making our first inroads into that particular market segment where InterSystems is so strong."
The reseller agreements are "good news for InterSystems because they have another partner that supports their platform; and it is good news for MITS because it brings MITS Report to a new market; and it is good news for LifePoint Informatics because it is another offering they can take to their customers," Owen adds.
