InterSystems, a provider of next-generation solutions for enterprise digital transformation and the world’s most proven electronic medical record, announced the opening of its New Zealand office, providing a physical base to build a growing local team and even closer relationships with customers and partners.
The InterSystems office in Auckland’s Newmarket is headed up by experienced HealthTech executive Brian Biggs, Director, Customer Relations and Sales, New Zealand. It is easy walking distance to two of the company’s biggest customers, the Auckland District Health Board, including Auckland City Hospital, and leading private healthcare provider, MercyAscot.
After two years where remote work was the norm, the office brings the company’s team closer to new customers like the Auckland District Health Board and Franklin Hospital in South Auckland, and existing customers with ongoing programs of work. InterSystems is recruiting for a number of open positions and the office will provide a collaboration space for the growing local team and a base for visiting global experts.
InterSystems is extending its commitment to the transforming New Zealand market after supporting customers in the country for 25 years. For most of that time, InterSystems has been known for supporting data management in hospitals with its TrakCare patient administration (PAS) and electronic medical record (EMR) system.
The company’s expanded presence will also help it lead organisations on their digital transformation journeys. For example, next-generation InterSystems data platforms can be used to unify data across different systems for advanced analytics and develop new, data-driven solutions. Demand for these capabilities is expected to accelerate in healthcare with increased funding for New Zealand’s Hira digital health programme.
“It is an exciting time to be working in digital health in New Zealand and the perfect time to be opening an office,” said Brian Biggs. “It will help us build even closer relationships with our customers to enable their ongoing success. There is also greater potential to work with development partners to deliver solutions on the InterSystems IRIS and IRIS for Health™ data platforms.”
“Our New Zealand office is an important extension of our presence in the APAC region and our existing Singapore, Japan, China, Thailand and Australian offices,” said Darren Jones, Country Manager, Australia and New Zealand for InterSystems. “I am delighted to be investing in a permanent home for our New Zealand team and look forward to welcoming many new team members on board.”
