Metro Health is an integrated healthcare system offering expert, award-winning care to Kent County, Michigan, and the surrounding area. Metro Health Hospital, the flagship institution in the network, was one of the earliest adopters of Ensemble and remains one of the technology’s most ambitious innovators. Metro Health also includes 12 neighborhood physician offices located throughout West Michigan, nationally-recognized heart & vascular services, a wide range of award-winning inpatient and outpatient specialty services, and a cancer center developed in partnership with the University of Michigan department of radiation oncology.
Over the course of a six-month engagement in the summer of 2007, J2’s role within the Metro Health team encompassed a number of Ensemble-related activities including research and documentation into legacy interfaces, validation and optimization of recently developed interfaces, and implementation of new interfaces to support Metro Health’s strategic application development plans. J2’s involvement in the project enabled Metro Health to effect a temporary increase in its development capacity, with smooth transitions at the beginning and the conclusion of the engagement.
