Associated Surgeons and Physicians

 

Mid-market health services provider Associated Surgeons and Physicians has rapidly adopted server and client virtualization and gained significant new benefits, including better mobile and bring your own device (BYOD) support as well as improved disaster recovery (DR).

"Upgrading to a virtual infrastructure has helped us considerably in maintaining and increasing meaningful use expectations, with the ability to be virtual and have the redundancy that gives, along with the fact that VMs seem to run a lot more efficiently virtually. We have better ways to collect data, a lot more uptime, and a lot more efficiency, so we can collect more data from our customers."

— Ray Todich, Systems Administrator at Associated Surgeons and Physicians, LLC.

Beaumont Hospital

 

Ireland’s Beaumont Hospital is using VMware’s vCenter Log Insight to deliver better IT services to its organisation through more efficient network usage and reduced downtime. It does this by delivering unparalleled visibility into its virtualized IT estate.

“As the hospital’s reliance on IT grew, the role of IT staff became steadily more complex. With all departments and every new project requiring some level of IT input, we realised we needed to run our infrastructure in a more efficient way. This meant investing in a solution which could offer us clear and comprehensive visibility into our server network. Using VMware vCenter Log Insight has allowed us to better track data centre trends and, as a result, make better, more informed decisions about our network to help increase efficiency and prolong the life-span of equipment. We’re also able to identify potential IT issues quicker than ever before meaning that downtime is almost non-existent and the end-user experience has improved.”

— David Kelly, ICT Virtualization Manager

Benefis Health System

 

Benefis Health System enables bedside medication verification and charting with VMware AlwaysOn Point of Care. Through tap and go roaming of the desktop, providers can access patient information within seconds. The result: Clinical staff now view IT as something that can help, not hinder them in their work.

"If we were to remove the system right now, I don't know how people would react. I think they would melt down, because they've become so accustomed to being able to provide that care at the bedside. Being able to spend time with the patient and chart, and then go on to the next patient without having to run back to the nurse’s station for charting.

— Dustin Ostberg, Systems Administrator, Benefis Health System

City Clinic Bulgaria

 

VMware Horizon View at City Clinic Bulgaria

A solution designed to provide an agile and adaptive approach to hospital infrastructure and at the same time to respond to future expansions and upgrades. In addition of choosing vSphere for the virtualization of all services and machines on server level the solution uses Horizon View in order to ensure the VDI features. The combination empowers the hospital to achieve agility through an off-premise cloud-based virtual infrastructure.

“In contemporary medicine technology is very important for providing high quality medical services. VMware solutions help us provide a better medical service to our patients. VMware View allows us to have a constant and mobile access to medical information regardless our current location and via any device.”

Clalit Health Services

 

Clalit Health services virtualized their IT environment using VMware solutions

"I see VMware's SDDC revolution as an evolution for the infrastructure of the private cloud. today, all the subject of storage management, security and network is taking a lot of resources. If we are able to virtualize and automate these components, there is no doubt we could improve our savings and deliver a better service for our customers".

— Moshe Belker, Manager of 6 expert teams and 5 System and DBA teams

Cleveland Clinic Abu Dhabi

 

Enhancing patient experience through technology

Cleveland Clinic Abu Dhabi went into construction in March 2010 and is scheduled for completion in 2015. The hospital’s management wanted to provide a best-in-class digital environment for all patients in order to give them the best experience possible and to ensure their stay is a comfortable as possible from every aspect.

The IT team naturally has to play a key part in this vision and, as a result, deployed vCloud Automation Center for improved managed and oversight of its infrastructure. Thanks to VMware, the time it takes to deliver applications to the hospital will be reduced from two weeks to 15 minutes – or by 70% - due to the automation capabilities of VMware’s solution.

“The key to our IT strategy when we began our journey here was starting with private cloud and growing to a hybrid cloud or a software-defined datacentre. I think that the real drivers for that were increased agility and achieving better time to market for our customers, whether that’s physicians who may need data for research, of the ability for us to rapidly upgrade and enhance products, enabling new services.”

— Mike Reagin, Chief Information Officer, Cleveland Clinic Abu Dhabi

Creative Solutions in Healthcare

 

Creative Solutions in Healthcare Improves Patient Outcomes with VMware vCloud Air

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.”

— Shawn Wiora, CIO, Creative Solutions in Healthcare

Business and operational benefits include swift deployment, simpler storage management, as-needed scalability, and lower cost per I/O.

"We can use commodity servers and drives to build a storage cluster for 30 percent less than the cost of similarly performing storage in a traditional SAN solution.”

"Our data center is 90 percent virtualized, and I see Virtual SAN as a very compelling storage solution to utilize for most of our virtual machines."
