July 11, 2008 - The West Metropolitan Health Service (SMOcc) selected the InterSystems TrakCare health care information system for a new health care initiative.


SMOcc is made up of more than 20 health care facilities in the Santiago, Chile metropolitan area and it is estimated that this project will result in updating over 2 million records annually.The initiative is expected to enable major improvements in health care delivery for the entire Western region population in Santiago.


The implementation of the health care information system, which will collect, process and store clinical and administrative data, is the first step of a comprehensive reform proposal from the Chilean Healthcare Ministry. The proposal's main objectives are to decrease health care costs while improving patient access and overall quality management.


"With this project, we begin on a path that positions us as leaders in public health clinical and administrative management," said director of SMOcc, Enrique Ayarza. "As the health reform initiative is implemented, InterSystems TrakCare will enable us to respond to information requests in the most optimal manner possible."


InterSystems will work with Quintec and STG Chile to implement the InterSystems TrakCare applications. Quintec, a leading provider of data center services, will manage the database that stores the information that will be exchanged among the Santiago health centers. STG Chile will provide the implementation team responsible for bringing up the system in multiple locations in Santiago.


InterSystems TrakCare was selected after extensive, in-depth evaluation of multiple software products.
