Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, a major teaching hospital of Harvard Medical School, is a fully integrated health system providing adult services from cardiology to obstetrics, gastrointestinal disorders to cancer care. BIDMC is also home to a renowned academic research program, where scientific discoveries help to transform medical care. As national leaders in patient care quality, safety and transparency—and the first hospital in the country to achieve meaningful use of electronic medical records—BIDMC is setting standards in the way health data can be used to improve care and services.
BIDMC is a great example of how a well-staffed IT organization with years of experience using InterSystems technologies might still want to reach out for help from time to time. J2 has provided Caché and Ensemble (now Health Connect) staff augmentation to BIDMC in the areas of systems administration, software development, documentation, and support.
