InterSystems, and Virtusa Corporation, a global provider of digital strategy, digital engineering, and IT services and solutions have announced their partnership in an effort to drive positive patient outcomes while reducing cost through improved analytics. As a result of the partnership, Virtusa customers will now be able to more easily and effectively extend the vLife™ life sciences platform capabilities to access patient data from EMR systems, and other clinical capabilities, thanks to the InterSystems IRIS for Health Data Platform.
Virtusa’s Innovation Platform for Life Sciences
Virtusa’s vLife, an Amazon Web Services (AWS) cloud-based technology, is a platform consisting of a comprehensive HIPAA-compliant data lake with multiple data sources, pre-built APIs, artificial intelligence (AI), and machine learning (ML) models. Additional visualization and predictive tools are also available for client subscription.

Growing Importance of Reducing Cost Through Improved Analytics for Providers
“The healthcare industry is in the midst of a monumental shift from a fee-for-service to a fee-for-value reimbursement pay structure. Therefore, our focus is on helping our customers improve patient care while reducing cost through improved analytics,” said Anthony Lange, senior vice president of life sciences, Virtusa. “As a standalone platform, vLife provides superior support for research and training ML programs. But, to fully meet customer needs and expectations, we need to offer seamless access to real world clinical data for use in payer, life science, and medtech scenarios. InterSystems IRIS for Health makes that possible.”
