Employing 12,000 people and serving more than one million patients a year, Baystate Health is among the largest healthcare systems in New England. Its facilities include an academic medical center, four community hospitals, a children’s hospital, numerous outpatient and primary-care facilities, a hospice, a health insurance company, and the only level-one trauma center in Western Massachusetts.
To offer the highest-quality care, Baystate Health must evolve continuously. So the organization embarked on an update of its entire IT infrastructure, deciding on a virtualized hyperconverged infrastructure environment with a dramatically reduced footprint.
The new IT infrastructure had to make it easier for medical staff to work on the go. “For our specialists to be where they need to be in real time, they need to smoothly transition from exam rooms to nursing stations to their office and bring along their desktop wherever they go,” says Joel Vengco, CIO of Baystate Health.
