A hospital’s network is the foundation for the critical applications that run on it, where most of those applications are related to the hospitals core businesses. The return on the investments made in EMR (electronic medical records), PACS (picture archiving and communication system), clinical imaging systems and workstations on wheels, can only be truly realized if those assets are always available to the people in need in a reliable, secure and highly optimized way, at a fixed location, or while mobile.

We convened top academic medical center leaders for our AMC Advisory Roundtable in October of 2013. We also conduct regular discussions with a wide array of health care executives, including leaders of health systems, medical groups, insurance companies, and academic institutions. This whitepaper shares some of the key themes that have emerged from those meetings.

The Internet of Things (IoT) has rapidly transformed the digital landscape and the world we live in. Intelligent devices and sensors connect smart cars, robotic manufacturing equipment, smart medical equipment, smart cities, industrial control systems, and much more in a way that improves lives and saves businesses billions of dollars. But along with its benefits, rapid IoT growth introduces a new dimension of security vulnerabilities that dramatically escalates the nature and seriousness of cybercrime risks.
In addition to traditional confidentiality cyber risks, IoT threats include attacks that can:
• Render smart appliances useless
• Shut down city power grids
• Threaten lives through hacked pacemakers and other medical devices.
Such security flaws not only endanger lives, frustrate customers, and disrupt business operations, but they create significant cost and public relations damage for IoT developers and manufacturers.
Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center, a nationally recognized fully integrated academic medical center and health system, is dedicated to improving patient care and advancing medical research. However, its aging legacy IT infrastructure had to be modernized in order to meet the requirements of the business.
Wake Forest Health turned to market-leading EMC Converged Infrastructure from VCE to simplify IT operations and drive business efficiency. In addition to multiple VCE Vblock® systems, the Vblock 540 with EMC XtremIO all-flash storage enabled significant improvements in application infrastructure performance and agility. After deploying the Vblock 540, Wake Forest experienced an overall 30 percent performance improvement to end
users and decreased the time needed for storage provisioning from 24 hours to less than an hour.

With the proliferation of health and fitness data due to personal fitness trackers, medical devices and other sensors that collect real-time information, cognitive computing is becoming more and more important. Cognitive computing systems, with the ability to understand, reason and learn while interacting with human-generated data, enable providers to find meaningful patterns in vast seas of information. IBM Watson Health is leveraging the power of cognitive computing to help providers make data-driven decisions to improve and save lives worldwide, while controlling healthcare costs. Read our whitepaper and learn about the new era of cognitive computing and how it can improve health outcomes, optimize care and engage individuals in making healthy choices.
Intel teamed up with Philips to show that servers powered by Intel® Xeon®
Scalable processors could be used to efficiently perform deep learning inference
on patients’ X-rays and computed tomography (CT) scans, without the need for
accelerators. The ultimate goal for Philips is to offer artificial intelligence (AI) to its
end customers without significantly increasing the cost of the customers’ systems
and without requiring modifications to the hardware deployed in the field.
For Japan’s largest medical equipment wholesaler, Mutoh, ensuring its 300,000 products reach hospitals, clinics and health-centres on time is an imperative. Someone’s life depends on it.
Without IT that wouldn’t be possible. But Mutoh’s IT infrastructure was unable to keep pace with the demands of the business. Every time an order came in, Mutoh had to pull data from different systems across multiple servers which was time-consuming.
It needed an IT infrastructure that was fast, high-performing, reliable, stable, and flexible.
Mutoh turned to Lenovo’s hyperconverged infrastructure that helped the company achieve:
• The ability to seamlessly extract data from different systems across multiple physical servers helped Mutoh respond to customer orders as quickly as possible, thereby saving lives
• A modular hyperconverged solution allowed Mutoh to invest on a need basis, improving ROI and addressing spikes in customer demand
