Epic will use InterSystems' data platform starting with the August 2020 release of its EHR to increase clinicians' access to larger datasets and information for patient care, according to an Oct. 13 news release. 

Three details: 

1. Epic will apply InterSystems' IRIS Data Platform as the foundation for its EHR. The platform is now generally available to Epic customers. 

2. The Verona, Wis.-based EHR giant has been partnered with InterSystems for more than 40 years. 

3. The data technology company will help improve Epic's performance and scalability; Epic supports a community of healthcare organizations whose systems support 2.5 million concurrent users and process about 1.8 billion database accesses per second across all customers using Epic.
