IRIS  IRIS for Health  HealthShare

J2 Interactive is InterSystems’ longest-serving and most accomplished HealthShare Implementation Partner, with over 20 years’ experience implementing solutions on InterSystems technology for customers of all sizes. Customers around the world have relied upon J2 to design, implement, and support solutions on HealthShare and its various components, including Unified Care Record, Patient Index, Provider Directory, Personal Community, and Health Insight. And of course, all of our HealthShare expertise rests upon decades of experience building applications with IRIS Data Platform (formerly Caché) and interoperability solutions with IRIS for Health (formerly Ensemble / Health Connect).

The dozens of projects we’ve delivered over the years illustrate not only our expertise with every facet of the InterSystems technology platform but also the strength of our relationship with InterSystems. Both in the U.S. and overseas, InterSystems has entrusted J2 to make some of its most strategic clients successful—usually on our own, but often in close collaboration with InterSystems resources. We’ve worked side-by-side with InterSystems’ sales, implementation, product management, and support teams on project after project, always ready to do whatever it takes to achieve positive outcomes for our mutual clients. We’ve even helped InterSystems’ product development team by delivering HealthShare product enhancements, time-critical certification projects, and demonstrations of capability such as the annual IHE Connectathon.

J2’s expertise with InterSystems covers a broad range of sectors in healthcare and beyond.


Since we helped the Long Island Patient Information Exchange (now Healthix) become the first US customer to go live with HealthShare in 2007, J2 has designed and built some of the most expansive, innovative, and feature-rich technology solutions for HIEs across the United States.

Exchanges of all kinds—including public HIEs as well as private institutions looking to establish HIE capabilities throughout their internal and external networks—have relied upon J2 to design, implement, and support solutions that push the boundaries of what an HIE can accomplish. Our many successful HIE projects give J2 a unique perspective on the best ways to achieve big things under challenging time and budget constraints, making the most of existing assets and investments to deliver the kinds of tangible benefits that enable long-term sustainability.

From specialty clinics and community hospitals to expansive healthcare networks, J2 has helped providers of all sizes achieve their most critical strategic objectives. By drawing upon our expertise with InterSystems technology, provider organizations can stay out in front of rapidly evolving technologies and standards, navigate shifting business drivers, and make the most of limited resources to deliver maximum value to their staff and patients.

Whether it’s an interface engine replacement, a transition to a new EHR, or the establishment of a private HIE, J2 has an unmatched track record of helping providers get the most out of their InterSystems investment. We are equally comfortable delivering stand-alone projects or working as an extension of your team, fully committed to building internal resources’ confidence and self-sufficiency with the InterSystems platform.

Labs and Research Institutions

In a rapidly consolidating and increasingly competitive marketplace, the interoperability challenges faced by laboratories and research institutions continue to grow. We’ve helped our clients in this space leverage InterSystems technology to tackle a broad range of projects, from low-level device automation to electronic order and result routing, enterprise-wide integration across testing sites, and bi-directional data exchange with providers, payers, and HIEs.

In addition to our interoperability work, J2 has done substantial application development including provider-facing lab outreach software, patient service center automation, and an immunology database for the Ragon Institute that supports groundbreaking research into HIV and COVID-19.

“The work by J2 has completely transformed our ability to do science.”

Bruce Walker MD, Director
Ragon Institute


The seismic shift from fee-for-service to value-based care has created new possibilities for payers to contribute to the well-being of their members. J2’s work with HealthShare has enabled payers to collect and analyze valuable clinical data from providers and HIEs, which is essential to maximizing reimbursement from government-sponsored programs such as Medicare Advantage. It also helps them measure and increase member engagement through targeted wellness programs.

With the advent of the CMS Interoperability and Patient Access final rule, the urgency has increased even further, as have the opportunities for payers who want to do more than just meet the minimum requirements. J2’s expertise with HealthShare and our knowledge of the unique challenges faced by payers has helped our clients lay the foundation for a wide array of future innovations to advance their mission and better serve their members.

“J2’s expertise and follow-through were instrumental in helping us not only meet the requirements of the CMS 9115 Final Rule but also advance our broader interoperability goals.”
