Its medical staff of more than 200 doctors works as a team with its more than 1,800 employees in caring for approximately 9,000 inpatients and more than 350,000 outpatients per year.

Marquette enlisted J2’s help to implement InterSystems’ HealthShare Patient Index. J2’s work included:

In addition to project management and implementation, J2 was also responsible for conducting hands-on mentoring and knowledge transfer throughout the project to instill best practices and build self-sufficiency among Marquette’s internal staff.

Since completing the original HSPI implementation, J2 has provided Marquette with ongoing support for both HSPI and Ensemble, as well as staff augmentation to help build new Ensemble Interfaces. J2 has also developed several custom user interfaces in Zen to allow end-users to update patient IDs in HSPI as part of their duplicate resolution process.
