Services: Interim CTO Leadership, Enterprise Architecture & Technology Design Services, Project Management

The Challenge

TrustPoint assisted a large academic health system with the planning and implementation of an entirely new IT infrastructure. This included Disaster Recovery and staff re-organization in support of a new Electronic Medical Record system implementation. The current facility and base infrastructure were not capable of supporting the demands of the new systems.

Our Approach

TrustPoint worked closely with our client hospital to develop and implement a new organizational structure, data center and a disaster recovery plan to support the move to the new EMR.

Results

The result was the successful design and implementation of a new Epic EMR solution that included the planning and migration to a new data center with disaster recovery in support of over 1000 physicians and 6000 support staff. The TrustPoint team worked closely with the data center provider to ensure that it met all availability and scalability requirements of this medical center. The staffing model was reconciled to align with the requirements of the newly introduced clinical EMR while a new infrastructure platform was designed and implemented using the new staff.
