Value-based Care: Navigating the IT Challenges and Opportunities

By focusing on outcomes rather than actions, “value-based care" promises better patient outcomes at a lower cost. On the Healthcare IT Download podcast, senior healthcare strategist, Chris Logan, of VMware, spells out the challenges that providers face in moving toward this goal and how new technologies can make it happen, reliably and securely.

Healthcare Case Studies

Baystate Health Transforms into Modern Healthcare Center of Tomorrow with VMware NSX Network Virtualization

Baystate Health needed a new secure IT infrastructure that would ensure optimal application performance for doctors and staff, contain costs, and accommodate ever-increasing healthcare demand. With the VMware NSX(tm) network virtualization platform and a Software-Defined Data Center (SDDC), plus guidance from VMware Professional Services, Baystate seamlessly converged three physical data centers into a single, logical three site "active/active/active" data center. This strategy saved Baystate an estimated $3.5 million and laid a stable, yet flexible, foundation for future growth.

Interfaith Medical Center Protects Patient Information with VMware vCloud Air

"Virtualizing our servers with VMware saved us approximately $2.03 million over a seven-year period, and we achieved 100% payback on vSphere in half that time," says Christopher Frenz, Director of IT Infrastructure, Interfaith Medical Center. "Without VMware, we'd need a lot more manpower, a lot more electricity and cooling, and a much bigger data center. VMware also helps us be more agile in deploying new projects, which is quite useful in a healthcare environment. We recently upgraded to vSphere 6, which went very smoothly and gave us an even better management interface."
