CASE STUDY

Virtustream , an enterprise-class cloud company and Dell Technologies business , has announced that Seattle Children ’ s successfully unified two distinct Electronic Health Record ( EHR ) platforms into a single Epic system on the Virtustream Healthcare Cloud .

Dr Zafar Chaudry , Senior Vice President and CIO , Seattle Children ’ s , said : “ Now is the time for clinical systems to securely and efficiently run in the cloud . The Virtustream Healthcare Cloud enables Seattle Children ’ s to focus on our rapidly changing business needs and , most importantly , on our patient care priorities .
With expert support provided by Virtustream ’ s xStreamCare Services for EHR Platform , the newly unified system provides secure and easy access to patient data across the Epic platform for thousands of clinicians and staff members with increased efficiency and more predictable lower costs .
Seattle Children ’ s specializes in meeting the unique physical , emotional and developmental needs of children from infancy through young adulthood . It is one of the largest children ’ s hospitals in the US . and provides services throughout 46 locations in Washington , Alaska , Montana and Idaho .
“ Virtustream ’ s expertise and mission-critical cloud platform allow us to be more agile and scale faster in ways that traditionally took too long and were too expensive . Virtustream played a key role in our successful migration to Epic during a very hectic time for our healthcare system as we dealt with work-fromhome requirements and more pressing issues related to the pandemic , and I ’ ve come to greatly value our trusted partnership .”
Completed late last year , the EHR consolidation and migration project included a Cerner EHR application running in the Cerner cloud and the Epic Revenue
