InterSystems Corporation, a producer of software for connected healthcare based in Cambridge, Mass., has announced that the Hunterdon Healthcare System (Flemington, N.J.) is using the InterSystems Ensemble rapid integration and development platform to integrate the electronic medical records (EMR) systems at their 15 affiliated physician groups with the EMR and other systems at Hunterdon Healthcare Medical Center.

Hunterdon Healthcare most recently is using Ensemble to connect the medical center’s QuadraMed Affinity hospital information system and laboratory system with the physician groups’ Electronic Health Record and Enterprise Practice Management systems from NextGen Healthcare Information Systems.

Communication enhancements that have resulted include automated primary care physician notification, where a patient’s primary care provider is notified when that patient is admitted to the hospital, and employee utilization notice alerts, which integrates separate payroll systems.

Hunterdon plans to follow up their internal integration projects with joining an health information exchange in northern central New Jersey.
