Creative Solutions in Healthcare decided to migrate from its co-located physical environment to the cloud to save costs, improve application availability, and update its core infrastructure to comply with HIPAA requirements. The company turned to VMware to migrate quickly to a more robust infrastructure. Using VMware vCloud Air, they gained the technology and control to achieve HIPAA certification and improve application availability while reducing the IT budget by one-third. The company has been able to extend its capabilities to the cloud and implemented a sophisticated electronic health record (EHR) system, including electronic prescriptions and online physician orders, to improve staff agility and patient care.

“The vCloud Air team had the best onboarding process for any IT project that I’ve been involved with in the last 20 years. We haven't looked back.”

“The infrastructure in a HIPAA-compliant environment needs to be secure with controls for change management and the right firewalls and technology to protect the perimeter. Before moving to vCloud Air, we had policies in place, but we didn’t have the infrastructure to support them. On vCloud Air, we’ve deployed technical controls on our core infrastructure and anti-virus and other solutions in a holistic approach to security that allows us to comply with regulations and achieve HIPAA certification.”

“We have better patient outcomes because of vCloud Air. Our use of the cloud translates directly to technology availability and better capabilities in the hands of our talented, compassionate staff.”
