Empowered Health: Empowering every person to live healthier lives and every organisation to deliver better healthcare.

Health needs are infinite, but resources are finite. Health organisations are frustrated with technology solutions that haven’t delivered on their promise to improve care, facilitate research, and rein in costs. Transforming healthcare requires more than digitising medical records. We need “systems of insight” that help translate data into action, and “systems of engagement” that enable new ways to treat patients more quickly and more long-term. Microsoft platforms and services lay the trusted foundation for such solutions, so health providers and payors, public health or social services agencies, and pharmaceutical companies can improve patient and employee experiences, empower researchers, and enhance products and services in the face of increasing cost pressures. Speak to our Healthcare experts on Stand 26 to find out how Microsoft can empower your healthcare trust or clinic.



Our data management and integration platform, along with our powerful healthcare solutions, keeps health and social care providers, application vendors, and device manufacturers all on the same page.  We currently help Boards to manage the health of over 90% of the patient population and connect information and processes between numerous applications and organisations across the country.  Also, our health informatics platform is used as an inter-agency service to share information.

This common foundation of operational systems makes InterSystems an ideal partner to support new types of strategic interoperability initiatives, to further the digital maturity of health and social care, improve outcomes, along with the user and patient experience.  Because empowering healthcare to improve care matters.
