Rady Children’s Hospital – San Diego, the largest children’s hospital in California, is a 520-bed pediatric care facility providing comprehensive pediatric medical services to 90 percent of the children in the San Diego area. The region’s only designated pediatric trauma center, Rady Children’s also serves as a major pediatric clinical research center, working in collaboration with world-renowned institutions such as UC San Diego and St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. Rady Children’s has received national recognition for medical excellence, with rankings in all 10 pediatric specialties surveyed by U.S. News & World Report.
Rady Children’s reached out to J2 in 2015 to help lead and execute a large-scale migration of over 125 interfaces from eGate to InterSystems Ensemble. Working in close collaboration with Rady’s internal team, J2 developed the overall project plan, instituted best practices for interface architecture and development, and took primary responsibility for the migration effort. By applying J2-developed tools for interface migration and testing, J2 was able to convert eGate interfaces to Ensemble quickly and accurately, with minimal impact on end users. J2’s expert knowledge of both eGate and Ensemble enabled us to complete many complex interfaces in a short amount of time, achieving a binary match between the messages generated by Ensemble and the legacy eGate output.
In addition to helping Rady Children’s convert all of their legacy eGate interfaces, J2 has helped Rady enhance their interface monitoring, and alerting capabilities. Once again, pre-built tools provided by J2 provided a framework that our team quickly adapted to Rady’s specific needs. The result is a real-time notification process that dramatically reduces the risk of interface downtime.
