MUMPS (Massachusetts General Hospital Utility Multi-Programming System), also known as M, is a programming language designed for manipulating and retrieving data from databases. The language was created in the late 1960s at Massachusetts General Hospital and has been widely used in healthcare settings due to its handling of complex data structures. MUMPS is a heavily integrated language and environment. Despite being somewhat niche, it still has an impact on electronic health record systems thanks to its robust, concurrent database management system and rapid application development capabilities.
