Over the past decade, rapidly accelerating advances in digital technologies coupled with the global adoption of connected mobile devices, and increasingly ubiquitous access to the Internet have triggered a substantial paradigm shift that is reshaping the very nature of human existence. Digital technology, biology, and physical environment have converged into a unified whole. Digital no longer stands on its own; rather, it is inextricably woven into the fabric of human experience. Digital technology is ambient and core to our daily lives. And digital technology’s exhaust, data, is the raw material driving an accelerating cycle of innovative disruption.
The dynamics of a hyper-connected global digital ecosystem undergoing an accelerating rate of change and technological innovation is the “new normal” and serves as our existential context. As a result, leaders across virtually every industry and
organization new challenges. Those who embrace the reality of a seemingly chaotic environment marked by rapid cycling innovative disruption will foster an organizational culture that encourages rabid curiosity, creativity, and experimentation. Inculcate creativity, experimentation, and thoughtful urgency or face rapid decline into obsolescence.
This is where Intraprise Solutions can help…
Founded by Todd J. Fisher, an information technology innovator and entrepreneur, Intraprise has served the healthcare and financial services industries with information technology solutions since 1997. Over the past quarter century, Intraprise has introduced several innovations based on emerging Internet, browser, cloud, and high-performance computing technologies to serve the unique needs of their customers. Many Intraprise’s solutions were industry firsts and proved transformative to their customers and the markets they served. A few examples are offered below.
Creatively combining emerging technologies to deliver transformative solutions
In 1997, Intraprise delivered an electronic medical records solution built on emerging Internet and browser technologies for an existing Health Information Technology firm. The solution served care delivery and coordination and was ultimately adopted by dozens of large healthcare systems and community hospitals.
“Intraprise entered the world of big data before big data was a thing”, said Fisher when in the late 1990s and early 2000s, Intraprise conceived of, designed, developed, and delivered the largest and most widely distributed digital document capture and processing capability in the country. The medical records release of information solutions rapidly evolved to support a network of over 2,000 locations capturing 750,000 pages of medical records per day across 48 states. The innovation took advantage of new laptop and desktop scanning technologies, advanced encryption, and leveraged the growing Internet as a cost-effective communications back-bone to securely handle an enormous daily volume of digitized patient health information.
Transforming legacy systems in a fast-changing market
Called upon by two very large US-based financial services organizations, Intraprise transformed an “in house” legacy systems to enhance performance and add new, advanced features to serving vital and mission critical functions. In both cases, the solutions were very data-intensive with high volume transaction requirements to assess the value, risk, and simulate the impact of environmental and market changes for decision support purposes.
Intraprise introduced new high performance computing technology with a massive parallel computing design to support both organizations’ requirements.
Each solution processed hundreds of millions of complex transactions per day while delivering performance improvements measured in several orders of magnitude. These solutions stand as among the most innovative and sophisticated the industry and offers an enormous competitive advantage with scale and adaptability for the future.
In today’s world, change is continuous, accelerating exponentially, and data is both the raw material and currency of the global digital ecosystem. In such a world, the biggest risk to any organization is not in taking an uncertain action and failing but failing to act in an uncertain environment and adapting to the outcome
Interoperability and real-time, highly sensitive health data processing
Before AWS was an Amazon business line, Intraprise purchased a high availability data center and developed the first cloud-based health information exchange, Mobile MD. Operating from a cloud configuration and built to leverage evolving internet technologies, growing availability of broadband connections, and emerging methods of digital and physical security, Mobile MD was deployed as a SaaS solution to serve hundreds of health systems and hospitals on a 24/7/365 schedule with high availability requirements. Thousands of physicians were able to coordinate and support the care of millions of patients across the US.
“The best way to support care providers and the communities they serve was to offer a frictionless way to enable the collection, transformation, and distribution of millions of health data transactions without having to worry about the ever-changing technologies and disparate system idiosyncrasies. The cloud-based SaaS model provided health systems flexibility and a business model that aligned with their needs”, said Fisher.
In 2009, Intraprise spun out the MobileMD business line working with a Private Equity firm and in 2011 sold the MobileMD HIE business to Siemens Health Services division.
Recently Intraprise introduced the SynapsysDX Knowledge Exchange to offer organizations a space to share and keep pace in a rapidly changing digital ecosystem. Inspired by neuroscience’s concept of neuroplasticity, which refers to the real-time re-wiring of the human brain in response to changes in the environment. In a word, hyper-adaptability. "We are helping create adaptive organizations that can survive the exponential acceleration in the rate of change", mentions Fisher.
Intraprise remains fluid, adaptive, and focused on the true common denominator that was and continues to fuel change and growth - data, digitized, processed, and distributed on, over, and in the mobile Internet.
In today’s world, change is continuous, accelerating exponentially, and data is both the raw material and currency of the global digital ecosystem. In such a world, the biggest risk to any organization is not in taking an uncertain action and failing but failing to act in an uncertain environment and adapting to the outcome.
