InterSystems IRIS for Health™ is the world’s first and only data platform engineered specifically for the rapid development of healthcare applications to manage the world’s most critical data. It includes powerful out-of-the-box features: transaction processing and analytics, an extensible healthcare data model, FHIR-based solution development, support for healthcare interoperability standards, and more. All enabling developers to realize value and build breakthrough applications, fast. Learn more.
InterSystems is very pleased to announce the 2021.1 release of InterSystems IRIS Data Platform, InterSystems IRIS for Health and HealthShare Health Connect, which are now Generally Available to our customers and partners.
The enhancements in this release offer developers more freedom to build fast and robust applications in their language of choice, both server-side and client-side. This release also enables users to consume large amounts of information more effectively through new and faster analytics capabilities.
It's come to our attention that the built-in license in the InterSystems IRIS and IRIS for Health 2021.1 Community Edition release is incorrectly set to expire on October 30, 2021.
There is no impact to any production versions (the Community Edition is for development purposes), but developers will find that their instances stop running and should replace them with new ones. For cases where replacing them is an issue, we have provided an override key.
Have you ever had to convert HL7v2 messages to FHIR (Fast Healthcare Interoperability Resources) and found the process complicated and confusing? InterSystems is rolling out a new cloud based SaaS offering called HealthShare Message Transformation Services, which makes the process easy. We are excited to announce an Early Access Preview Program for our new offering, and we would love to have you kick the tires and let us know what you think! All you need is a free AWS account, with an S3 bucket to drop in your HL7v2 messages, and another S3 bucket to get your FHIR output.
InterSystems has identified an issue with product distributions containing Certificate Authority certificates that expire at the end of 2020. This issue does not affect system operation or system security in any way, although it does generate alerts about expiring certificates in the cconsole.log or messages.log files.
Preview releases are now available for the 2021.1 version of InterSystems IRIS, IRIS for Health and HealthShare Health Connect.
As this is a preview release, we are eager to learn from your experiences with this new release ahead of its General Availability release next month. Please share your feedback through the Developer Community so we can build a better product together.
If you are looking for a slick way to integrate your IRIS solution in the Amazon Web Services ecosystem, server less application, or boto3 powered python script, using the IRIS Python Native API could be the way to go. You don't have to build out to far with a production implementation until you'll need to reach out and get something or set something in IRIS to make your application do its awesome sauce, so hopefully you will find value in this article and build something that matters or doesn't matter at all to anybody else but you as that is equally important.
I came across some issues when setting up Freeze and Thaw batch scripts for use with VMWare in a Windows ecosystem, and I wanted to share what I found in the hopes it can help others. This was undertaken in an environment using Healthconnect 2019.1.x.
We invite you to take part in the European Healthcare Hackathon 2021 which will take place on November 19-21 2021. Participation is free, the deadline for applications to the ON-LINE track is prolonged until 15 NOV.
We will have an InterSystems challenge there: "Innovate with FHIR". Prize fund in InterSystems track:
🥇1st place: 1500 EUR 🥈2nd place: 1000 EUR 🥉3rd place: 500 EUR And we prepared prizes for ALL participants of our challenge!
Read the details about our challenge under the pic :) Are you in? Let us know in the poll below!
In this article, I will show you how to configure FHIR repository + OAuth2 authorization server/resource server on IRIS for Health following the previous article.
In Part 1, we introduced the preliminary preparations, configuring the OAuth2 authorization server, and obtaining the access token.
Part 2 will show you how to build an FHIR repository and configure an OAuth2 client/resource server.
In InterSystems IRIS, the default form of access to the management portal is HTTP, which means that if the client is in the office and the server is in the cloud, many clients probably desire to encrypt their traffic in some way.
Thus, we would like to show you some ways to encrypt your traffic to and from the IRIS management portal (or various REST services) running on AWS.
We’re looking for Python developers to participate in our Embedded Python Early Access Program! If you (or someone you know) are a Python developer and are interested, please contact us via the email address below.
What do you think If I will say you, that very soon you will be able to connect to IRIS from the application written in Rust.
What is Rust
Rust is a multi-paradigm programming language designed for performance and safety, especially safe concurrency. Rust is syntactically similar to C++, but can guarantee memory safety by using a borrow checker to validate references. Rust achieves memory safety without garbage collection, and reference counting is optional. (c) Wikipedia
I have just created a new Global Master Topic, "IRIS Cheatsheets". IRIS has introduced a lot of new functionality, especially in scripting languages, FHIR R4 support, enhanced Interoperability Tools, and IRIS Analytics. Having spent 35 years working on Windows-based PC's and Laptops, I have surprisingly little knowledge of Linux, Docker and Git. Furthermore, I have written almost every application and Interface in ObjectScript with splatterings of SQL, .Net, and Java Gateways and the most basic knowledge of WinSCP, Putty, SSH. All that changed when I received my first Raspberry Pi.
For the benefit of those who want to use the Document Database (DocDB) capabilities within InterSystems IRIS, and specifically the REST API it provides, I put together a PostmanCollection that provides samples for several basic calls.
I run most of my reviews using Docker Desktop on Windows 10. According to the recommendations, I clean up docker and downloaded repositories after tests: Repos are simple but Docker is somewhat resistant to release the consumed disk space.
We are currently in process of implementing REST APIs using IRIS and we are also looking at using Intersystems API Manager.
Our aim is to implement a Microservices Architechture where Services are small in size, bounded by contexts, autonomously developed, and independently deployable.
We are following a spec first approach where we are first defining the API specs into Swagger Hub and using IRIS API Management Service to build the REST classes i.e. the Specification class, Dispatch class and Implementation Class.
I often miss the ZPM program on a clean system.
Nothing complicated? Take and install.
And in one line? Especially in a docker container.
There is a solution. I'm very happy with it;)
Maybe the line can be shortened?
