InterSystems joins community of health IT organizations, app developers and technology providers to promote consumer-directed exchange of healthcare data

CAMBRIDGE, Mass.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–InterSystems, a creative data technology provider dedicated to helping customers solve the most critical scalability, interoperability, and speed problems, today announced that they have joined the CARIN Alliance, a bipartisan, multi-sector collaborative working to advance consumer-directed exchange of health information.

As a member of the CARIN Alliance, InterSystems joins other healthcare organizations to improve consumer, and authorized caregiver, access to their digital health information and enable their ability to share it. InterSystems customers will also benefit from CARIN’s close relationship to the Office of the National Coordinator (ONC), and their guidance and support implementing federal guidelines. InterSystems will discuss its work with the CARIN Alliance, the federal guidelines, and how these affect patients, providers, and payers at this year’s InterSystems Virtual Summit from October 20 – November 5, 2020.

“We are proud to work hand in hand with other healthcare organizations committed to advancing the exchange of healthcare data,” says Don Woodlock, Head of Healthcare Solutions for InterSystems. “Membership in the CARIN Alliance not only facilitates that collaboration, it enables us to connect our customers with the best insights into new federal regulations regarding health information as we continue to expand our digital ecosystem.”
