Recently, the Saint Joseph Hospital Medical Center has successfully deployed a-IBM storage, server and software systems for integrated solutions to help medical centers of hospital patient care level, a significant reduction in hospital operating costs while improving health system performance and utilization . IBM offers solutions that support more than 2TB of seriously ill patients access to data and can provide solutions to five times higher than the original technology of storage capacity, this design can provide users with information and capacity on demand.
Headquartered in Syracuse, New York City, St. Joseph Hospital Medical Center has a leading hospital as a hospital network, by building support for implementation of digital X-rays and medical records storage infrastructure, IT investments completed its historic transformation. Through out the old EMC storage and server hardware devices integrated to build disaster recovery measures, Saint Joseph Hospital Medical Center has achieved a major technological transformation.
Saint Joseph Hospital Medical Center with IBM Global Services in close cooperation with the deployment, including IBM TotalStorage DS4100, DS4300 and ESS 800 systems infrastructure, including IBM TotalStorage, replacing the existing EMC storage hardware. Meanwhile, the medical center has also installed the IBM eServer p630 systems to help run the backup and recovery software IBM Tivoli Storage Manager. Now the new system can store up to 15TB of information, while the speed of medical records retrieved from the minutes down to seconds, efficiency is greatly enhanced.
Saint Joseph Hospital Medical Center Information Technology Manager Chris Ryan said: "The patient is the first for us, yet we are the original information infrastructure can not meet the growing technical needs of the hospital, such as the medical staff not to provide real-time digital The X-ray films and critical patient data. In order to solve this problem, IBM helped us to deploy the performance and capacity are much higher than the original system, the hospital's new solution will enable us to increase capacity on demand to help near real-time access to medical staff the patient records and digital X-rays, and thus significantly increase the level of patient care. "
Medical Center of IBM hardware technology to deploy environmental capacity is not only five times before the EMC platform, and a significant reduction of maintenance work, saving half the storage and technology costs. Meanwhile, the overall utilization of the infrastructure has improved markedly. To protect the hospital can access information on demand, medical centers can access critical patient data as needed, so as each year thousands of patients.
