Orion Health selects HP Converged Cloud to support managed health services

Infotech Lead America: Orion Health, a New Zealand-based health information exchange (HIE) provider, has implemented HP Converged Cloud to support its global managed health services.

The solution allows providers quickly and securely access critical patient data in order to coordinate patient health and improve population health. These solutions need to be standardized to meet both compliance and regulatory requirements.

“Through a combination of HP Cloud Maps and Orion Health Managed Services, we will be able to quickly build a comprehensive catalogue of applications for simple deployment, reducing the time to deliver a new application,” said Paul Cunningham, chief technical architect, Orion Health.

“By selecting HP, Orion Health will have the flexibility to deliver cloud services that are tailored for each customer on demand, and will be more agile and efficient while maintaining industry compliance and security standards,” Cunningham added.

The implementation will benefit hundreds of thousands of clinicians to help facilitate care for tens of millions of patients across more than 35 countries. Orion Health facilitates data exchange between hospitals, health systems, HIEs, EHRs, and affiliated providers and medical devices.

Orion Health now benefits from a scalable and secure virtual infrastructure that is based on HP CloudSystem Matrix, an Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) for private and hybrid cloud environments. This enables customers to quickly provision their infrastructure for physical and virtual environments.

By implementing HP CloudSystem Solutions and HP Cloud Maps Solutions, Orion Health will have the flexibility to deliver cloud services that are tailored for each of its customers.

HP claims that its CloudSystem leverages OpenStack technology to enable support of KVM resource pools. This allows enterprises to tap external resources directly from HP CloudSystem for pay-as-you-go capacity.

Thanks to HP CloudSystem Matrix, Orion Health is able to increase performance through a scalable IaaS model that adjusts to dynamic business demands. It helps maintain compliance and regulatory requirements by hosting sensitive and private data on-site in a secure environment.

Orion Health will leverage HP’s global reach to provide its integrated solution around the world, enabling it to generate new revenue streams by enhancing its managed services IaaS offering.
