UMC New Orleans Delivers Quality Healthcare Services With NetApp

Sapphire Health, CMA Technology, and NetApp build new infrastructure for New Orleans–based hospital system, speeding delivery of exceptional care to underserved communities in Louisiana

“University Medical Center [UMC] New Orleans, a public-private partnership with the State of Louisiana, was built and founded by the State and is the first of five hospitals in the LCMC Health system with Epic deployed as the EMR,” said Tanya Townsend, CIO of LCMC Health. “Sapphire Health’s understanding of our requirements, CMA Technology Solutions’ delivery of the core Epic infrastructure, and NetApp All Flash FAS enabled us to meet consolidation and integration requirements. We quickly built out two new data centers capable of delivering critical patient data to thousands of clinical users.”

LCMC Health is the parent corporation of Children’s Hospital, Touro Infirmary, UMC New Orleans, New Orleans East Hospital, and West Jefferson Medical Center. Ten years after Hurricane Katrina decimated two of Louisiana’s major teaching hospitals, the State of Louisiana and LCMC Health unveiled a new facility, University Medical Center (UMC) New Orleans, the largest teaching hospital in the state. Because of a tight launch schedule, UMC had only three months to deploy and test a state-of-the-art IT infrastructure before the hospital opened. The technology team sought to give physicians, clinicians, and radiologists rapid access to patient information through Epic electronic medical records (EMRs) and GE Centricity PACS applications using virtual desktops accessed from shared thin-client terminals.

    This design is incredible! You most certainly know how to keep a
    reader amused. Between your wit and your videos, I was almost moved to start my own blog (well, almost…HaHa!) Fantastic job.
    I really loved what you had to say, and more than that, how you presented it.
    Too cool!
