The race to develop accurate testing and a vaccine for COVID-19 is just the latest example of the need for speed in healthcare. In this rapidly changing environment, healthcare organizations need to embrace innovative and agile data management technologies in order to improve the quality of patient care and reduce operational expenses. IIS has teamed up with Nutanix to deliver modernized data center services with a significantly reduced footprint, lower cost of ownership and faster time to market to healthcare organizations.

Nutanix is the leader in hyperconverged infrastructure (HCI) platforms for healthcare. Over 1,200 healthcare and life sciences enterprises around the world including hospitals and insurance providers, pharmaceutical companies and research labs, rehabilitation and assisted living facilities, visiting nurse and home healthcare/remote monitoring services employ Nutanix cloud-based software to access electronic medical records, images and other mission-critical data with reduced latency for better patient outcomes.

Nutanix leverages web-scale engineering and consumer-grade design to converge compute, virtualization and storage into a single resilient, software-defined solution. Its patented scale-out architecture delivers predictable cost and flexibility – customers pay for only what they use and upgrade as needed. Nutanix brings a broad range of capabilities with one-click application management and mobility to public, private and distributed clouds, and meets national healthcare security requirements such as HIPAA, HITECH, PIPEDA and GDPR.

Through Nutanix, IIS offers access to a rich and diverse partner eco-system, including certifications for Epic Hyperspace, MEDITECH HCIS, and eClinicalWorks EMR solutions, as well as Fujifilm, Sectra, Carestream and IBM Watson Health PACS applications. Two Nutanix offerings IIS is particularly excited about directly impact the speed of deployment for front-line healthcare users, wherever their responsibilities take them.

The FastTrack Program
