Mohawk Valley Health System, Utica, N.Y.
Mohawk Valley Health Systems (MVHS) was created from the merger of two hospitals, resulting in four disparate electronic health record (EHR) systems. MVHS decided to implement a single EHR system from Epic, called Sonnet, with the HPE GreenLake Flex capacity model for infrastructure. The goals were to improve quality of care, manage costs and bolster clinical and operational efficiencies by:
Running a cloud-like experience on premises. Scaling server and storage capacity up or down as needed. Implementing a predictable cost model for hardware, software and support. The new Epic system and HPE infrastructure enabled MVHS to reduce capital spending and reach 100% uptime during one of the world’s most crucial times: “COVID-19 hit our organization very hard,” says Ed Hildreth, manager of distributed systems at MVHS. “But any additional features we needed to activate, we were able to do that without delays.”
Infrastructure performance improvements have allowed MVHS to deliver a better user experience by enabling patients to manage their health information online, while improving quality of care through real-time patient monitoring and information sharing, among other benefits.
As a hybrid cloud, consumption-based IT model, HPE GreenLake is helping organizations across all industries bring the cloud experience to applications and data wherever they are—the edge, colocations and the data center.
As an example, organizations in healthcare and the public sector have been able to improve services, gain control over IT budgets, strengthen business continuity and position their organizations for the future.
