Virtustream’s Mission-Critical Healthcare Cloud Expertise on Display


in Events, Healthcare Cloud, Healthcare, HIMSS

Editor’s Note (3/10/20): With the HIMSS organization’s decision to cancel its conference this year due to an abundance of caution concerning the COVID-19 situation, Virtustream’s plans for the conference changed as well. While this post is no longer relevant for the conference itself, the information about our Healthcare Cloud and related services remains accurate, so we’ve maintained this post for the benefit of our visitors.

We’re looking forward to being back at HIMSS20 this year to share our latest Virtustream news and advancements, and showcase our expertise on the healthcare IT market’s latest trends and business challenges. 

We’ll have our top healthcare IT experts around to lead informative sessions, and discuss how we can help your organization migrate and manage your electronic healthcare records (EHR) workloads in the cloud. And if your organization is on the payer/insurance side of the market, we can also help you plan, migrate, optimize and manage your Epic Payer Platform on Virtustream’s mission-critical cloud. Our experts are also happy to walk through our recent successful migration of Franciscan Health’s Epic application to our cloud platform.

Headline News with Franciscan Health

As a mission-critical cloud company and a Dell Technologies business, Virtustream can help healthcare providers of all sizes do more with less. One example is Virtustream’s recent announcement regarding Franciscan Health’s migration of its Epic EHR application to the Virtustream Healthcare Cloud. The successful migration is an integral part of the healthcare organization’s long-term strategy to exit the data center business and expand its cloud strategy to focus more internal staff resources on patient care-focused IT initiatives.
