When Speed Matters Most

by Robin Izsak 15. November 2013 05:22

We talk a lot about data around here. Particularly, how to make it perform better, how to make applications respond faster, how to solve some of IT's most formidable challenges around managing increasingly complex data centers.

But nothing compares to the importance of data performance when it comes to patient records and load times in a hospital ER, where every second spent waiting might be a second too long.

I recently spoke with Ryan Barker, Technology Specialist with Hancock Regional Hospital, hoping to get real insight into why speed matters—and I got exactly that. Ryan's users, which consist of ER doctors, nurses—any and all staff who touch the hospital's MEDITECH systems—were complaining of extremely slow load times and the inability to save records. Sometimes in dire situations, like a busy day in the ER.

Read the case study to learn how Hancock Regional used V-locity® VM™ to improve load times from 2 patient records every 7 seconds to 6 records in 4 seconds.
