The U.S. Coast Guard has tapped the HealthShare health informatics platform from the Cambridge, Mass.-based InterSystems as it looks to have a comprehensive electronic health record (EHR) across the Coast Guard’s disparate systems.

As the Coast Guard transitions from legacy systems to a commercial EHR solution, HealthShare provides standards-based interoperability to unify health information from civilian and Coast Guard care providers, officials say. Clinicians can now view longitudinal health records for Coast Guard and U.S. Department of State beneficiaries. The platform encompasses ambulatory care, urgent care, dental, physical therapy, optometry, behavioral health, occupational health, immunizations, audiology, radiology, pharmacy, and laboratory records.

“InterSystems is proud to support the U.S. Coast Guard and State Department. Building on our experience with the Department of Veterans Affairs, the Department of Defense, public and private health systems, and health information exchanges around the world, we are providing the Coast Guard the interoperability foundation to help deliver better, more connected care,” Paul Grabscheid, vice president, strategic planning, for InterSystems, said in a statement.
