The efficiency of Node.js combined with the high performance of M, provides
an unparalleled fresh approach for building healthcare applications.
Judging by “A Case of the MUMPS“, this sounds like a very strange combination. But according to Rob Tweed, a proponent of MUMPS, it’s only the language that is outdated, while the storage engine is a “highly flexible database”.

On the other hand, a raw Mumps database, such as GT.M, is actually an
interesting beast, as it turns out to provide everything you need to design
and create your own NoSQL (or pretty much any other kind of) database. As
I’ve discussed and mentioned a number of times in these articles, it’s a
Universal NoSQL engine.
The question I’d ask myself is not “why would I build another NoSQL database”, but rather “why none of the popular ones are built using Mumps?”.
