DOD taps InterSystems for health database

The Defense Department has awarded a $14.7 million contract to InterSystems Corp. to deliver its Cache post-relational database software for DOD's Composite HealthCare System. The contract includes options that could eventually total $63 million.

It will put InterSystems database software at the core of health care delivery at 70 hospitals and more than 400 clinics serving more than 8 million people.

A provider of health care databases, InterSystems of Cambridge, Mass., developed the Cache post-relational database and Ensemble rapid integration software. Both let developers quickly create, deploy and integrate high-performance applications.

The company offers database technology for government health care systems, including many of the largest electronic health record systems worldwide.
