Crystal Run Healthcare Consolidates Monitoring Using Zyrion Monitoring Solution
Zyrion has announced that Crystal Run Healthcare has selected Zyrion’s enterprise monitoring software for their IT infrastructure.
Crystal Run Healthcare is a multi-specialty private practice offering fully accredited, all-digital radiology and laboratory services. They are a national leader in Healthcare Reform offering integrated, coordinated care for all patients, including those with common medical conditions like diabetes, high blood pressure, coronary artery disease, and congestive heart failure.
“We have a large number of locations and were spending a lot of time and resources with our legacy HPOV Insight Manager and other tools,” said Miguel Hernandez, Director of IT at Crystal Run Healthcare. “We were looking for a scalable, unified, end-to-end monitoring solution with low cost of maintenance and with enterprise features. Zyrion’s product offers all of these and their strong Service Container functionality directly impacts our service repair time and related costs,” he added.
Zyrion’s Traverse monitoring solution has already started to show benefits to Crystal Run since its deployment. The service container technology in Traverse presents a unified view of their application, servers & network for a service and gets a full perspective as opposed to looking at them separately. It provides Crystal Run with a much simpler and easier solution to implement and the data is presented in a way that is easy to read and meaningful to end business users.
Healthcare Cloud Computing (Clinical, EMR, SaaS, Private, Public, Hybrid) Market – Global Trends, Challenges, Opportunities & Forecasts (2012 – 2017)
Research and Markets has announced the addition of the “Healthcare Cloud Computing (Clinical, EMR, SaaS, Private, Public, Hybrid) Market – Global Trends, Challenges, Opportunities & Forecasts (2012 – 2017)”report to their offering.
Technologies in the healthcare IT industry are converging with time and are far outpacing the legacy systems used by hospitals and healthcare providers. Pronouncements by various countries such as American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (ARRA) laid down by the U.S. government are encouraging businesses in the healthcare industry to utilize certain applications of electronic records. Recently, cloud technology has started replacing these legacy systems and offers easier and faster access to this data as defined by the way it is stored i.e. public, private or hybrid.
Cloud computing offers significant benefits to the healthcare sector; Doctor’s clinics, hospitals, and health clinics require quick access to computing and large storage facilities which are not provided in the traditional settings, moreover healthcare data needs to be shared across various settings and geographies which further burdens the healthcare provider and the patient causing significant delay in treatment and loss of time. Cloud caters to all these requirements thus providing the healthcare organizations an incredible opportunity to improve services to their customers, the patients, to share information more easily than ever before, and improve operational efficiency at the same time. The flip side of this advantage is that healthcare data has specific requirements such as security, confidentiality, availability to authorized users, traceability of access, reversibility of data, and long-term preservation. Hence, cloud vendors need to account for all these while conforming to regulations such as HIPAA and Meaningful use.
All the above factors bring the market for cloud computing to grow at a CAGR of 20.5% from 2010 to 2017 in healthcare. Although cloud computing offers significant advantages to HCOs and other stakeholders, it has set of restraints. Security of patient information, interoperability and compliance with government regulations are some of the factors which are slowing down this market.

Two Arizona Hospitals Choose EHR from Healthcare Management Systems
Gilbert Hospital and Florence Hospital at Anthem, both southeast of Phoenix, have chosen the Healthcare Management Systems electronic health record.
The hospitals, along with their clinical and administrative hospital leaders, chose to partner with HMS because of its meaningful use track record and ability to rapidly implement its comprehensive EHR and emergency department information system (EDIS). The hospitals will also work with HMS’ EHR Initiatives Group for meaningful use consulting services to help accelerate the Stage 1 attestation process.
“It was clear from the beginning that HMS understood the needs of our facilities and the patients we serve because HMS has been fully committed to the project and helping us achieve our short- and long-term goals,” said Laurel Molloy, Chief Nursing Officer for Gilbert Hospital. “We are working hard to not only make emergency and traditional care more convenient, but we’re also focused on being more efficient and increasing patient care and safety, which HMS’ solutions will help us do.”
The hospitals’ aggressive growth plans will help ensure that local residents, and the area’s annual influx of winter visitors, have access to full-service and high-quality healthcare facilities, including state-of-the-art emergency departments. Gilbert Hospital and Florence Hospital at Anthem are the only facilities in the Valley to guarantee that emergency department patients will see a board-certified physician within 31 minutes. This approach was established at Gilbert Hospital, which experiences more than 40,000 emergency department visits each year; the facility’s “Door to Doc in 31 Minutes”™ promise is well known throughout the Phoenix area.
