J2 Partners with HBI on Predictive Analytics

The most satisfying part of our work is witnessing the positive impact it has on patient outcomes. That’s why we’re thrilled to partner with HBI Solutions to help healthcare organizations adopt advanced predictive analytics to support care management, population health improvement, and delivery of value-based care. HBI offers some of the most advanced predictive models on the market, giving organizations the power to predict onset of disease and future utilization, all in real-time.

J2's UK Team Implements LHAC Care Portal

Our UK team helped InterSystems reach an important milestone with client Lincolnshire Health and Care (LHAC), a partnership between 13 health and social care organisations in Lincolnshire county. LHAC will introduce a care portal to connect patient data and make it accessible online to providers, patients and families. Last year, LHAC selected InterSystems HealthShare and J2’s implementation services to power the initiative. The care portal combines county-wide provider data to create a single, user friendly and longitudinal patient record, eliminating the need for redundant tests and x-rays and saving a projected £23 million over five years.
