How UZ Leuven makes progress
When leading European hospital UZ Leuven decided to team up with several other healthcare providers to form the new group Nexus Health, it soon became clear that supporting this collaborative growth with efficient, accurate data sharing across seven facilities would require IT to scale existing infrastructure up to four times its current size. It was determined that this would require migrating one core application (the homemade EPR system, or electronic patient record system) and 200 small but important applications to the IBM DB2 database.
Read this white paper to learn how UZ Leuven was able to migrate its complex portfolio of applications without errors or downtime to a new foundation that provides seamless data sharing throughout the organization to help uphold its reputation for reliability and quality of care.
