MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., Feb. 27, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Based on its recent analysis of the Healthcare IT market, Frost & Sullivan recognizes InterSystems Corporation with the 2012 Brazil Company of the Year Award. InterSystems has pioneered the implementation of connected electronic health records in the Brazilian market with its InterSystems TrakCare® healthcare information system. Headquartered in the United States, InterSystems is succeeding in Brazil by providing a Brazilian edition of TrakCare that meets the needs of local healthcare providers.
InterSystems TrakCare® is a unified healthcare information system that is Internet-based and rapidly delivers the benefits of an electronic patient record. Its functionalities were developed based on input from healthcare professionals.
"In response to customer feedback, InterSystems added features to TrakCare such as the powerful 'closed-loop' medication management within a unified healthcare information system to improve patient safety and clinician productivity," said Frost & Sullivan Research Analyst Gabriel Walmory Silveira. "It also offers new clinical summaries, alerts, 'break-the-glass' capabilities, and care planning work lists, along with ease-of-use enhancements and a patented technology for unlocking important information often hidden away in clinical notes."
The company stands out due to its flexibility in dealing with diverse customers. It has provided Electronic Health Record (EHR) solutions for renowned private hospitals and large diagnostic centers; however, one of the most impressive projects was developing a connected EHR system for the Federal District Government of Brasilia hospitals. This endeavor allowed more than 2 million patients in 17 hospitals with 4,400 beds, 61 health centers, polyclinics, diagnostic laboratories and pharmacies to obtain and share electronic patient records.
"The TrakCare solution has not only aided better health management, but also leveraged integrated information through an analytical process to promote preventive health measures among the population," noted Gabriel Walmory Silveira. "It also offered new clinical summaries, alerts, 'break-the-glass' capabilities, and care planning work lists, along with ease-of-use enhancements and a patented technology for unlocking important information often hidden away in clinical notes."
Before launching a new product or improving its already leading products, InterSystems obtains suggestions from its clients. In addition, InterSystems' strategy to open branch offices near its main customers demonstrates its partnership-oriented goals. This business approach enables quick and efficient service and support.
Each year, Frost & Sullivan presents this award to the company that demonstrated superior entrepreneurial ability in its industry during the research period. This award signifies the company's identification of a unique and revolutionary product solution with significant market potential. Additionally, it certifies the company's marketing strategy as sound and poised for success.
