Kathleen Aller is the Director of Market Strategy for Healthcare at InterSystems, a software company that focuses on high-volume data management and mobile applications to manage healthcare data. By taking advantage of the InterSystems capabilities on the AWS platform, young startup companies can use its technology to help them cost-effectively build interoperable applications or data-intensive applications and scale up as needed.

Kathleen explains, "In fact, there are more than a billion records managed in our technology. One of the groups we've been working with a lot in the last few years are payer organizations who are responding to government regulation that says you have to make the information you hold about patients available to them. You need to do it using a standard called FHIR, Fast Health Interoperability Resources. They have to be able, then, to import that data into applications so that they can do things with it."

"We've been involved in digital health practically since its inception. Some of that is managed in applications built by partners like Epic, like 3M, who use our data management platform at the center of what they do. Some of that is in applications that we build on our own platform, so our HealthShare Interoperability engine connects up records for citizens around the world and gives a seamless longitudinal record. Our TrakCare EHR is used outside the US to document and deliver care."
