Laurens County Healthcare System


Laurens County Health Care System wanted to attest to Stage 1 of Meaningful Use by summer 2013 but knew it couldn’t deploy Meditech in a physical data center environment because of cost and reliability concerns.

“Physicians are very excited that they can use their own devices from anywhere to access Meditech and review EMRs [electronic medical records] and patient data without physically having to come into the hospital,”

— Gina Driggers, IT Director at Laurens County Healthcare System



Craig Barlow, working in Medi-IT represents hospitals in Central Finland. They have been using VMware products for its reliability, flexibility and ease of use. He shares his personal experience with VMware & ESX dating back to version 2. He discusses about ESX environment running 5.1 and their View 5.2 environment. Their roadmap for the next year and the year after is to move as much of the healthcare servers into the virtualized environment.

National Physician Services


Formed by physicians over 10 years ago, National Physician Services (NPS) is a healthcare technology company located in Hartford, CT. NPS provides technology solutions to healthcare providers to support the workflow of practices that increase efficiency, fulfill regulatory requirements and enhance patient care.

National Physician Services Stretches Geographic Reach, Reduces Risk of Data Loss with VMware vCloud Air Solution

Founded by physicians more than 10 years ago, National Physician Services sells and supports third-party tools for practice management and electronic health records (EHR) that help physicians improve the quality of care they deliver to their patients. NPS not only provides the infrastructure to support clinical applications but also offers support, consulting, and training for its customers. The company’s best-of-breed solutions increase efficiencies, fulfill regulatory requirements, and maximize revenue.

National Physician Services (NPS) needed to extend its geographic reach and improve disaster recovery capabilities, so the healthcare service migrated critical applications to the VMware vCloud® Air™ platform. The operational similarities between the VMware vSphere® foundation and the vCloud Air platform helped IT administrators come up to speed quickly. Now NPS can do business anywhere in the United States and has significantly reduced the risk of information loss. In addition, the company no longer has to maintain contingent backup systems, cutting data center costs by 20 percent.

“vCloud Air helps us shorten the time required to migrate new opportunities and practices to our virtual platform.”

Nederlands Herseninstituut


Netherlands Institute for Neuroscience(NIN) offers students stable and flexible workstations with Horizon (with View)

Desktop virtualization based on Horizon (with View) offers students who are working temporarily at the institution a stable and flexible workstation. They have access to complete functionality for data analysis, research and producing reports. At the same time the environment can easily be managed centrally using an image, so that installation and updates are rolled out centrally. Automatic replication of servers using Site Recovery Manager (SRM) also o¬ffers the institution easy and reliable contingency fallback. In the case of disaster, research can quickly be resumed from different locations.

“We now offer students 40 complete workstations they may freely use. Managing them has been set up centrally based on one image. So we can implement changes and updates quickly, and remotely”

— Adriaan Klop, IT manager

Union Hospital


Union Hospital Boosts Business Critical Application Performance on VMware Virtual SAN

Faced with aging hardware and maxed-out resources, Union Hospital preferred to replace its existing SAN and migrate to a different and better platform for its Tier-1 VM storage, Virtual SAN, a hyper-converged solution that provides scale-out capabilities and the best integration with the entire VMware stack. The decision not only saved money and helped right size their storage environment, it also solved key application performance challenges and freed up operational resources, positioning Union Hospital for future expansion.

“We actually had clinics calling us up to say how much faster the apps were running once they were in a pure Virtual SAN environment. … It seems like the more things we migrate to Virtual SAN, the more people are begging to be on it.”

— Chad Elliott, Network Systems Consultant, Union Hospital

Ziv Medical Center


Ziv Medical Center in Zefat previously had various distributed systems across the hospital and they wanted to unify them using a single solution which will be easy to manage, allow them to gain a unified view of all the systems simply and easily, and, of course, will be highly resilient. That's why they chose VMware View. The VMware view solution that they implemented at the zivMedical Center consists of two resilient storage systems that work in a cluster. This system caters for around 1,000 work stations. It's an environment that works as a 'Kiosk'. Their users enjoy a new work environment, a very fast one, with excellent response times. As a user logs in, he gets exactly what he needs. It's an environment that goes everywhere with him, it's dedicated to him - and roams with him. Doctors for example, may work in several different wards. They may finish work in one ward, log out, move to the next ward, log in - and receive a new environment that is adapted to their exact needs.

"The Ziv Medical Center in Zefat was founded roughly a century ago. It serves around 150,000 residents in the upper Galilee region, among them cities such as Karmiel, Kiryat Shmona, and Hatzor. This is the northernmost hospital in Israel and it therefore also often serves the IDF. They operate 1,000 PCs, 700 printers, and 80 servers, which are mostly VMware's. The vast majority of systems in the hospital are computerized. This includes labs, ORs, X Ray facilities, external infirmaries, hospital admissions, the trauma center and more. Our IT unit employs 11 people. One needs to understand that the systems we manage are life-supporting. These systems must be constantly up and running".

— Zion Levy, Head of IT Department, Ziv Medical Center



ASVZ heeft een grote groep ambulante medewerkers die bij de cliënt thuis toegang tot de applicaties moeten hebben, maar ook artsen die overal toegang tot de gegevens van cliënten moeten hebben. Dankzij desktopvirtualisatie van VMware met tweeweg-authenticatie hebben medewerkers overal toegang tot hun virtuele desktop. Hiermee heeft ASVZ het "any place, any time" en bijna "any device" gerealiseerd.

"Samen met onze partner hebben we binnen tien weken een productierijpe virtuele desktop omgeving opgezet. We hebben een zogenaamde ‘golden image’ ontwikkeld voor distributie en authenticatie. Hierdoor hebben medewerkers via hun desktop snel en veilig toegang tot de applicaties die zij voor hun werk nodig hebben."
