Sequoia Software spreads wings into European healthcare market

Dublin gets BackOffice attention

Sequoia has set up sales, support, and administration offices in Dublin to support sales of its XML-based BackOffice for Healthcare in the Emea region, and it has appointed Chris McCarthy to run the operation. Sequoia is seeking ISVs that will embed its technology with their own applications. The company’s European drive is backed by Microsoft through its World Wide Healthcare Industry Solutions group. Sequoia said it also expects to announce a formal marketing and development relationship soon with Lernout & Hauspie, the Belgium-based developer of speech recognition software. XML is a non-proprietary development tool that integrates with Microsoft SQL Server. Sequoia is focusing its initial European sales drive on Sequoia Interchange98, a BackOffice for Healthcare that integrates charts, templates, reports, and other patient data interchangeably from a variety of health care computer applications over widely distributed systems. It is a set of back-end technology components delivering such features as heterogeneous workflow, standard messaging, data distribution, security, and ubiquitous access to information. ®
