The solution leverages our existing investment in InterSystems CACHE® database system and Ensemble® rapid development and integration platform to unlock the knowledge hidden in silos of data throughout the organization, and allows us to use interactive dashboards to monitor real-time data with complete transparency.”
“Hunterdon has been a leader for years in using the best IT capabilities available to enable cost-effective, quality care delivery to its patients,” said Paul Grabscheid, Vice President of Strategic Planning at InterSystems. “The DeepSee-based HPM rollout across the Hunterdon enterprise is the latest example of how our advanced technology can be leveraged to create a more connected healthcare system.”

The customized, interactive dashboards, reports, KPIs, and visualizations delivered by the solution help Hunterdon monitor performance goals, enhance regulatory compliance, optimize supply chain processes, and gain foresight into potential business and clinical issues.”
