Attendees of this webinar will hear firsthand experiences gained from deploying and running an Epic Electronic Health Record (EHR) environment on highly available, virtualized infrastructure. Phil Wasson, President and CEO of TriRivers Health Partners, will discuss the challenges his organization faced with its previous environment. He will then outline how specific challenges were addressed by the current solution, which includes virtualization of Epic Windows Services, Caché database on Linux, and in the future, Epic Hyperspace on VMware Horizon View™ with VMware vCloud® Suite for Healthcare and Intel Xeon servers.
Mr. Wasson will be joined by healthcare experts, Tony Amaddio from VMware and Chris Gough from Intel. These technology strategists will describe the solution’s features, as well as the many benefits—such as reduced complexity, improved manageability, and high availability—that healthcare organizations can realize when they move their mission-critical applications from infrastructure silos to virtualized infrastructure.
Background: In 2012, Epic added Red Hat Enterprise Linux running on x86 servers to its list of target platforms. Previously, Epic only supported database software on UNIX servers. Recently, VMware achieved “Target Platform” status for Epic Hyperspace with VMware Horizon View.
During this webinar, you will understand the:
- Drivers behind moving to a cloud-based architecture using Intel and VMware technology
- Benefits of a virtualized Epic EHR solution to health systems and staff
- Organizational needs required to move toward a cloud-based architecture
- Risks and rewards of moving beyond infrastructure silos to virtual and cloud infrastructure
