Swedish Medical Center to implement Microsoft’s Amalga healthcare technology

Swedish Medical Center, billed as the largest health-care system in the greater Seattle area, plans to implement Amalga, Microsoft’s database platform for large hospitals and pharmaceutical companies.

Swedish plans to use Amalga to combine data stored in disparate IT systems across multiple facilities, to find opportunities to improve performance and quality of patient care, and for population management, according to a news release issued Wednesday.

The Seattle-based health care system operates five hospitals and numerous clinics.

Amalga is also used at other health-care institutions including New York-Presbyterian Hospital, Johns Hopkins Health System, Norton Healthcare, Providence Health & Services, and St. Joseph Health System, according to the news release.

It’s been part of a push by tech companies, including Microsoft, to develop software for the health-care industry.
