The Internet of Things (IoT) and its billions of sensors promise to revolutionize the granularity and accuracy of patient conditions, enabling ever faster and more accurate assessments. However, the accompanying IoT application tsunami means countless IT demands arriving ahead of an infrastructure to support them.
Comprised of 140,000 codes for healthcare professionals to juggle, ICD-10 carries the promise of easier and more accurate diagnosis. Still, compliance can require quick access to information and ongoing training — access that can be impaired if network resources are overloaded. When improperly managed, some sources put the revenue impact of ICD-10 implementation at up to 70 percent.
While electronic record systems carry the ultimate promise of superior patient care and higher provider efficiency, poor design from the application to the infrastructure can turn the EMR/EHR landscape into a minefield of frustrations for security liabilities. Fluid flow of records between offices and even patients’ mobile devices depend on IT resources operating at optimal levels.
These and many other healthcare challenges, including the rising tide of demand for data analytics, are pushing industry IT deeper into virtualized infrastructure adoption. Virtualized server and desktop platforms can transform a health organization’s performance and effectiveness, but reaching that point requires eliminating network, storage, and compute bottlenecks throughout the data chain, particularly at the data center level. Application lag not only upsets the end-user experience, it may alter patient-doctor interactions and affect the patient’s health.

Hays Medical Center is a private, not-for-profit hospital maintaining a local market share of nearly 90% and staffing more than one thousand associates and physicians. Prior to Xangati, HaysMed was primarily relying on user feedback, network traffic, or application-level statistics to try to gain a comfort level. Their VMware VDI environment started small, but over the years the number of users started to grow quite rapidly and the complexity began to build. At one point, some quite serious performance issues began to arise. Performance issues in VDI can be extremely difficult to troubleshoot. But with Xangati, that all changed.
U.S. Army improves patient record access with VDI and Xangati Summary: To give its doctors more time to treat patients, the U.S. Army converted its desktop health care patient record application system to a virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) with Xangati VDI Performance Management Solution to assure high performance of the entire VDI environment allowing their doctors consistently fast access to patient record. Using VDI storage with solid-state and the Xangati VDI Performance Management Solution has reduced login times from 3-to-5 minutes to less than 30 seconds in early implementations.

MBSI was providing approximately 800 virtual desktops to their employees using VMware Horizon with View and 8 VMware ESXi hosts and they were running an additional 140 virtual servers using 5 VMware ESXi hosts – all on a Tegile Hybrid SAN.
MemorialCare is one of the largest not-for-profit health systems in the United States with hospitals across Southern California in Los Angeles and Orange County. MemorialCare has gained widespread recognition for its unique approach to health care, focusing on evidence-based, best practice medicine. Its physicians and other health care professionals study health care’s best practices and work to implement them at all MemorialCare Medical Centers.
