IPC is the nation’s leading physician group practice, focused on the delivery of hospital medicine and related facility-based services. Since 1995, IPC providers have been delivering high-quality, cost-efficient care supported by the most sophisticated physician software technology in over 1,100 facilities in 28 states. IPC’s 2,000 hospitalist providers care for more than one million patients annually, coordinating care with more than 39,000 primary care providers and more than 1,000 health plans.
In the early stages of their interface migration project, IPC called upon J2 to conduct a comprehensive best-practices review of the Ensemble infrastructure that had been put in place by InterSystems and IPC, with a particular emphasis on Ensemble configuration, backups, and disaster recovery. Our review also included a detailed walkthrough of existing Ensemble interfaces, recommendations for Ensemble code promotion and deployment strategies, and a high-level project plan for completing the full set of IPC’s planned interface migrations.
IPC’s up-front investment in J2’s services allowed their internal resources to take full ownership of their Ensemble integration projects, with occasional ongoing support from J2.
