Situation: Due to rapid growth with practice acquisitions and surgery centers, Snead Eye Group needed to modernize their network infrastructure to better handle and optimize communication between locations. Additionally, patient care is of paramount importance and needed to remain unaffected. HIPAA security concerns also necessitated enhancement of security systems.
Solution: We installed server solutions to allow for instant failover in event of a hardware failure or lockup. This created high levels of uptime for all centers and ensured patient care would remain uninterrupted. In conjunction with Windstream, we also migrated their network to fiber connectivity and secure network appliances to both optimize network traffic and increase security with gateway protection. This solution facilitates secure internet and remote access while meeting HIPAA compliance.
