Providence Medical Center Selects Array Networks Application Delivery Controllers to Provide High Availability for eClinicalWorks Electronic Medical Record Applications

Healthcare organization benefits from virtual load balancing and optimization that assure high levels of application performance for medical personnel

Milpitas, CA – December 13, 2016 – Array Networks Inc., a global leader in application delivery networking, announces today that Providence Medical Center has selected Array’s vAPV virtual application delivery controller (ADC) to ensure high availability, optimized performance and enhanced security for mission-critical eClinicalWorks (eCW) electronic medical record (EMR) and patient management (PM) healthcare applications.

Providence Medical Center is a 400-bed acute care hospital and Level 4 Trauma Center in Kansas City that sees upwards of 35,000 emergency room visits per year. To reduce costs and errors as well as improve quality of care for patients, Providence Medical Center relies on a number of applications from eCW to power their EMR and PM portal infrastructure.

As a result of Providence’s recent decision to transition from a SaaS model, and bring EMR and PM applications in-house running in a private cloud, eCW recommended the use of an ADC to assure the same high levels of service as that of eCW’s cloud-hosted solutions. Based on a long and successful track record with Array, the APV Series is the only ADC eCW recommends for use with on-site deployments.

In keeping with their private cloud initiative, Providence selected Array vAPV virtual ADCs to provide high availability, security and optimization for eCW applications. The vAPV virtual appliance brings all of the features and capabilities of dedicated APV Series appliances to Providence’s VMware environment.

“The installation was simple and painless – we just downloaded the software, bought a license and applied the needed resources,” said Chad Pease, IT Manager at Providence Medical Center. “It’s been a very good experience, and we really appreciate that after the Array ADC was installed, we haven’t had to touch it since.”

“Providence Medical Center’s choice of Array is yet another example of our commitment to supporting the wide range of business applications essential to our customers’ success,” said Paul Andersen, director of marketing at Array Networks. “We are thrilled to have Array’s optimization capabilities for eCW applications playing a role in providing a superior experience for Providence’s patients and medical personnel.”
