2015 Winner Profile

Metro Health Hospital

Project Description:
Metro Health implemented an electronic medical records (EMR) system from Epic, but also wanted to provide a highly available, efficient and flexible desktop environment that would deliver EMR to caregivers and administrators -- whenever and wherever they needed it. So Metro Health's IT group implemented a virtual desktop solution that lets users log in (with security credentials) to quickly and reliably access applications and patient data. No patient information is kept on individual computers or hard drives. All the information is securely stored at two remote data centers, so physicians can provide fast, secure care and support to patients 24 hours a day from any location.
