Presented by

Eric Lester, Director of Network Services, Acadia Healthcare

About this talk

The Network Architect of Acadia Healthcare, shares his transformation journey across 100s of clinics. The main problems faced was an unreliable network that led to revenue loss at clinics. And the inability to roll out cloud-based EMR (Electronic Medical Record) systems on the traditional WAN. Learn how Acadia, one of the largest behavioral health clinic organization, went through the planning and implementation. The transformation has enabled the Acadia IT team to: ·  Migrate to cloud-based healthcare (EMR/EHR) applications ·  Ensure 100% network uptime of patient and administrative services ·  Transition to Hybrid WAN for Active/Active utilization and application based path selection ·  Achieve zero-touch IT capability while migrating the clinic footprint to the cloud ·  Rapidly enable services like guest WiFi, and cloud-based VoIP and medicinal dispensing This will also cover how healthcare service providers face major hurdles with their network infrastructure to deliver innovative cloud-based patient services. 15+ years of status quo has created a rigid infrastructure that cannot support modern cloud-based in-clinic services.
