As hospitals prepare to demonstrate Meaningful Use, having the expertise and supporting infrastructure to properly deploy Healthcare Information Technology (HIT) investments become critical. Adoption of HIT is central to the delivery of healthcare, requiring hospitals to have ever increasing levels of IT sophistication. The majority, if not all, hospitals do not list IT services as a core competency. Data center hosting solutions offer hospitals access to cost effective, state-of-the-art tools and technologies that allow healthcare providers to focus on patient care.
Join Tanya Freeman, CIO for Central Maine Healthcare, and learn the decision-making process used by the hospital to determine if it should build, upgrade or partner to address its inadequate data center hosting environment. A review of the challenges and outcomes will be discussed.”
