Hospitals have a data problem. Advanced monitoring devices generate terabytes (TBs) of data; however, only a small fraction of that data can be stored by the typical electronic health record (EHR) system. Especially during widespread health crises, this lack of data access poses a significant barrier to implementing virtual care, providing remote monitoring to protect caregivers, and maintaining a high standard of care. What’s more, without data, patient-centric analytics and artificial intelligence (AI) are at a standstill.
The Sickbay™ platform, developed by Medical Informatics Corp. (MIC), features web-based applications that transform data into actionable information to help care teams make better, faster decisions. By breaking down the data silos from proprietary vendor formats, the Sickbay platform integrates high-fidelity waveform data and enables cross-device analytics that helps care teams save lives.
By deploying the Sickbay platform on Dell EMC VxRail hyperconverged infrastructure (HCI), hospitals can lower infrastructure costs, manage their data more effectively, and accelerate analytics. Intel® Xeon® Scalable processors feature built-in AI acceleration at the compute level. Intel® Optane™ technology enables faster data access, which means storing massive amounts of data closer to compute is no longer an issue. The consistent performance, low latency, and high endurance of Intel® Optane™ SSDs, combined with the high throughput of Intel® Optane™ persistent memory (PMem), help hospitals get the data they need, when they need it.
Solution benefits include:
- Versatile and affordable infrastructure with HCI, software-defined solutions, and high-performance Intel® Optane™ technology
- Flexible architecture that can scale to handle explosive data growth
- Fast analytics and research performance
- Simplified hospital architecture through the removal of single-point solutions
By taking advantage of joint engineering and innovation between Intel, MIC, Dell Technologies, and VMware, hospitals that deploy the Sickbay platform can differentiate themselves in the healthcare market. High-quality virtual care, remote monitoring, and data-driven research can lead to better patient outcomes. And with the low total costs of a hyperconverged solution, hospitals can direct more resources to staff training, analytics, and other activities that directly improve patient care.
