Maimonides Medical Center announced that has implemented the InterSystems Ensemble from Cambridge, Mass.-based InterSystems Corporation, a software company for connected healthcare, to provide a rapid integration and development platform throughout the medical center.

Brooklyn-based Maimonides’ search for a new enterprise integration platform involved conducting multiple proof-of concept initiatives designed to explore the capabilities of a wide range of integration software products, according to Maimonides CIO Walter Fahey.

Ensemble’s embedded data repository enables end-to-end management and monitoring of even the most complex integrated systems and of SOA environments that include loosely coupled services. Stored information includes all messages, process state, and metadata captured from working systems. And, Ensemble’s browser-based management portal and Visual Trace facility enable developers to trace messages, and examine their content, as they move through the system.

The transition to Ensemble was completed in June. Maimonides applications are now seamlessly integrated with more than 400,000 inbound and outbound messages being transferred via Ensemble on a daily basis. The conversion, including development of some completely new interfaces for Maimonides’ Sunrise Clinical Manager system from Atlanta-based Eclipsys Corporation, was handled by afive-person team.
