HP to Help Niagara Health System Improve its Healthcare Services with IT Offerings

HP - ExecutiveBizHewlett-Packard Co. has signed a deal to provide Ontario’s Niagara Health System with networking solutions intended to help deliver centralized healthcare services in the Canadian province.

NHS tapped the HP 12500 and HP 8200 zl switch series to deploy new services, network support and unified information technology infrastructure, HP said Wednesday.

NHS is made up of six hospital sites serving 434,000 residents in Niagara, Ontario with goals to deploy service-related medical applications and secure access from multiple sites.

The organization opened a hospital in St. Catharines on March 24 to replace the old St. Catharines General and Ontario Street facilities.

Jeff Wilson, regional manager of ICT technical support at NHS, said HP’s networking solutions helped the doctors gain access to complex data and diagnostic technologies.

HP 12500 switch series provides open application to help reduce operational cost of deploying new services, HP said.

Meanwhile, the HP 8200 zl switch series offers platform technology, software, system management, integration and security to unify wireless networks.

HP’s intelligent management center helps NHS view its entire network and the technology consulting services enable the organization to integrate the new hospital with no downtime costs, the company said.
