HP's converged storage solutions has been selected by community health provider KishHealth System to improve patient care and accelerate medical record delivery in 13 facilities across Northern Illinois, HP said in a statement.
“Healthcare institutions seeking to improve patient care can't risk application performance decline and workflow disruptions with legacy data centers incapable of meeting digital medical record system capacity requirements,“ said Chris Riley, vice president, U.S. Storage at HP.
KishHealth has chosen to upgrade its infrastructure to increase performance, capacity utilization and availability of medical records and imaging applications.
“To ensure the highest-quality patient care, KishHealth needed a storage platform capable of maintaining maximum performance while scaling to accommodate our expanding digital medical records and communication requirements,“ said Patrick Yonke, senior systems administrator at KishHealth System.
HP converged storage includes:
· HP 3PAR StoreServ storage is meant to improve desktop computer performance and enhance data center control and security to accelerate patient medical record routing to more than 250 physicians and 1,300 employees.
· HP StoreOnce backup deduplication combined with HP partner BridgeHead's integrated serverless backup should increase workflow productivity by improving system performance and application availability, reducing EMR data backup time from six hours to just minutes.
· HP StoreAll storage attempts to increase storage capacity and flexibility while reducing costs for KishHealth's PACS medical imaging data.
Riley added that HP’s storage solution provides increased availability and application performance, which is meant to enable KishHealth to improve the quality as well as responsiveness of its patient care.
According to HP, its 3PAR Management Console will be used to administer and optimize the storage systems via a single window.
