In most use cases involving flash storage deployments, the business environment changes, driving a need for higher-performance storage. However, the case of Epic Systems Corporation software is the opposite—the storage requirements haven’t changed recently, but the options for addressing them have.
Epic, a privately-held company founded in 1979 and based in Verona,Wisconsin, makes applications for medical groups, hospitals and other healthcare organizations. Epic software typically exhibits high frequency,random storage accesses with stringent latency requirements. IBM has been working with Epic to develop host-side and storage-side solutions to meet these requirements. Extensive testing has demonstrated that the combination of IBM® POWER8™ servers and IBM FlashSystem™ storage more than meets the performance levels Epic recommends for the backend storage supporting its software implementations—at a cost point multiple times lower than other storage alternatives.

It’s no secret—healthcare is transforming. The transition to value-based care is well underway; healthcare players are feeling the impact and each has a role to play, including you! Moving to a value-driven model demands agility from every person, process and technology. These changes are generating more data than ever, there is a lot of data, in fact IDC Global Health Insights predicted that over the next 10 years, the amount of digital healthcare data created annually will grow 44 fold. Organizations that lead the pack and succeed will be those where clinicians, business leaders and patients are empowered with access to clean, safe and connected data.

In this case study, large health systems implement IBM Watson Health to surface improvement opportunities. Using this tool, they were able to cut costs, reduce patients’ length of stay, acquire actionable data, address number of readmissions and improve management of COPD and sepsis.
Advanced image analysis and computer vision are key components of today’s AI revolution and is becoming critical for a wide range of industry applications, including healthcare, where this technology is being used to detect anomalies and improve patient care. Due to a lack of integrated tools and experience with these cutting-edge technologies, however, deploying complete systems is difficult.
Applications that utilize deep learning approaches often require large amounts of highly parallel compute power, storage, and networking capabilities, along with performance optimizations for faster data analysis. The Intel and QNAP/IEI solution combines all these elements in one complete system for scalable data management for hospitals and clinics of all sizes.
Read more on Intel’s and QNAP/IEI’s real-world use case on macular degeneration analysis through high-performance computing, vision capabilities, storage, and networking in a single solution.
Often, a hospital’s revenue cycle is comprised of several departments that are managed and monitored separately. The lack of visibility of overall performance can impact cash flow and the patient experience. RelayHealth financial solutions offer a panoramic view of the revenue cycle while also providing the ability to drill down for microscopic focus on certain challenges. Using analytics to identify and prioritize improvement opportunities, financial executives can then implement RelayHealth’s other revenue cycle solutions to help solve problems and improve financial outcomes.
Florida Hospital Celebration Health has long recognized that nursing is a key factor in the efficient delivery of high quality patient care. Nursing also represents the hospital’s highest cost of labor. Given these factors, administrators at Celebration Health sought business intelligence tools to better understand current nursing performance and pinpoint opportunities for workflow improvements leading to higher patient and staff satisfaction.
Read this case study to learn more about how Florida Hospital Pioneers used RTLS and business intelligence to analyze and improve nursing workloads and workflows.
The shift to value-based care means that healthcare organizations should expand their concept of return on investment (ROI) to include the ability of solutions to increase efficiency and contain healthcare costs. Data analytics and automation capabilities have become important tools for providers aiming to maximize value-based payments. Learn from this whitepaper about the best ways for healthcare organizations to measure health IT ROI in the value-based environment, including specific examples of how certain providers are approaching this challenge.
This paper provides an introduction to server virtualization for hospitals and healthcare delivery organizations. It also offers best practices you can use to benefit from virtualization, while avoiding missteps that could affect the availability and performance of mission-critical healthcare IT.

At HP, we know that in retail and hospitality environments, customers expect a fast and simple way to find information or to complete a transaction. The physical point-of-sale experience must rise to meet the demands of retailers through high aesthetic value and peak performance.
From an elegant hotel to a small boutique, a quick-service restaurant to an outdoor garden center—all of these locations require a point-of-sale device that meets specific needs while appealing to any user.
My team at HP sought to elevate this experience by redefining the customer experience through a versatile, reliable, and beautiful point-of-sale system. For the new HP ElitePOS, we gained insights from everywhere—designers, technologists, retailers, and consumers—to create a product that is beautifully simple. It started as a sketch on a napkin, and is now part of an iconic portfolio that dissolves barriers during point-of-sale customer interactions.
