1-855-739-3227 | " Navisite helps one of New York's largest hospital networks move its on-premises EPIC EHR and Infor ERP systems to AWS. CASE STUDY Challenged by EHR Modernization Like most digitally transforming healthcare providers, one of New York's largest non-profit teaching hospitals had deployed an electronic health records (EHR) system, EPIC, and an Infor Lawson enterprise resource planning (ERP) solution on-premises to help doctors better coordinate patient care. But in 2013, driven by HIPAA compliance requirements and the complexities of its own growth, the hospital had committed to deploying EPIC and Infor in an off-premises, hosted environment in just 10 months—and for many reasons, it decided the cloud was the best solution. "Just a few years ago, running EHR off- premises was unthinkable. Aside f rom the fear of storing PHI (protected health information) outside the brick-and-mortar environment, EHR vendors weren't supporting off-premises deployment," recalls the hospital's CIO. Moving its on-premises EHR system and ERP solution to a cloud-based environment would solve some of the hospital's biggest challenges, like f reeing up floor space occupied by its on-premises data center. The move to an off-premises environment also meant it could stop worrying about unplanned power outages that risked bringing its entire system offline. However, with such a short window to deploy its inf rastructure, the hospital's IT team realized it couldn't do it on its own. The hospital needed a partner with the expertise and scale to get it done right and on time. More importantly, according to the CIO, "We needed a partner that was culturally aligned with us to build a relationship of trust." We saw Navisite as a leader. They were also cost-competitive and brought an appreciation for the healthcare industry, as well as a deep understanding of compliance issues.
