Sydney Adventist Hospital
Sydney Adventist Hospital is the largest single-campus private hospital in New South Wales. With the healthcare industry recognising client Electronic Medical Records (EMR) as a cornerstone of reforms, this hospital decided to review how it delivered systems and applications in a clinical environment. By deploying systems based on VMware Horizon View, the hospital has streamlined patient care and boosted the productivity and performance of its medical practitioners. In only two months, this leading Sydney specialist hospital transformed its processes from paper-based to paperless. In this case study and videos, a range of people, from the Head of IS to clinicians, talk about how VMware’s solutions have revolutionised the way the hospital runs. The benefits of access anywhere on any device became rapidly clear to everyone, and now the staff have full access to all patient data concurrently, and from any location and device.
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."
Carante Groep wilde haar serveromgeving vernieuwen en beheerinspanningen en hardwarekosten terugdringen. Daarnaast moest de organisatie voldoen aan de NEN-7510 normering voor informatiebeveiliging in de zorg. Om de beschikbaarheid, integriteit en vertrouwelijkheid van cliëntgegevens te garanderen, moest Carante overstappen van groepsaccounts op persoonlijke accounts. Op basis van VMware vSphere virtualiseerde Carante Groep vrijwel alle servers. Na een succesvol pilotproject werd bovendien een gevirtualiseerde desktopomgeving op basis van VMware View geïmplementeerd.
“Binnen onze VMware-omgeving gebeurt het beheer nu volledig centraal. Met templates kunnen we snel servers inrichten en bij calamiteiten zijn systemen weer snel in de lucht. We zien een grote meerwaarde voor de beschikbaarheid en betrouwbaarheid van onze services.Bovendien is het energieverbruik in het datacenter aanzienlijkafgenomen.”
