Our friends at InterSystems Corporation tell us that the Scotland National Health System (NHS) has selected InterSystems Ensemble for healthcare integration in Scotland. Ensemble, a seamless platform for integration and the development of connected applications, was purchased within the framework contract for the national Patient Management System. The investment in Ensemble is intended to facilitate the delivery of healthcare improvement as described in the Scottish Better Health, Better Care Action Plan and the eHealth Strategy 2008-2011. The use of a common integration platform will enhance the secure flow of clinical and non-clinical information to improve patient safety and clinical outcomes. Ensemble will enable the efficient management of costs, for example, through standardization and component re-use, and additional benefits will be realized from integrating existing applications and building on prior IT investments.
