Transforming Epic TCO with Intel® Technologies

Epic TCO is an urgent concern for hospital systems and other healthcare organizations. With rising pressure to add services and reduce costs, hospital leaders are looking hard at ways to run their Epic electronic medical records and InterSystems Caché database on a more scalable, sustainable infrastructure than legacy RISC platforms provide.

In this video, IT leaders at the two-hospital ...University Health System in Shreveport, Louisiana, say those concerns led them to migrate to open standards-based platforms powered by the Intel® Xeon® processor E7 and E5 families. CIO Marcus Hobgood and Executive Director of IT Gregory Blanchard discuss their decision process. Hobgood and Blanchard also discuss the results they’ve achieved—from 50 percent reduction in acquisition costs to zero-downtime reliability.
