Building a brand new, state-of-the-art medical campus from the ground up requires an I.T. infrastructure capable of supporting newer, more advanced healthcare applications and the massive volumes of digital data generated by these systems. While Metro Health's existing hospital had a simple PC-based network, the need to transition to a paperless/filmless environment was critical to ensuring top-quality medical services at every point of care (PoC) across the campus. Where does an I.T. department begin in the process to digitize an expansive "health village" that extends way beyond the four walls of a traditional facility? What technologies are required to assemble an end-to-end solution that must serve many masters — practitioners, patients and even visitors? This tall order would require careful selection of I.T. infrastructure components that could not only support Metro Health’s current PoC applications (EMR, PACS, digital signage), but sustain the future needs of an enterprise committed to innovation on every front.
