St. Luke’s delivers superior care by minimizing storage complexity

Hospital networks around the world depend on electronic health records (EHRs) to exchange patient information and deliver high-quality care. However, overly complex infrastructures can make working with massive amounts of data inefficient and frustrating for clinicians. St. Luke's University Health Network wanted to optimize its EHR application to improve performance, reliability, and security and create a better digital experience for its team.

As part of its digital transformation mission, St. Luke's migrated its entire EHR infrastructure to an Azure cloud-first computing model — and they partnered with NetApp to simplify the move. With Azure NetApp Files, St. Luke's gained advanced EHR architecture functionality and eliminated much of the complexity associated with its previous environment.

Better experiences, lower costs

The performance, reliability, and simplicity of Azure NetApp Files enables St. Luke's to maintain high standards of care while cutting costs. In addition to gaining greater computing capabilities, the move from an on-premises storage solution to Azure NetApp Files reduced costs by 25%.

With Azure NetApp Files, St. Luke's can run its most demanding file workloads while maintaining compliance and keeping sensitive EHR data secure. Clinicians can depend on the EHR application to deliver accurate, reliable patient information when they need it, reducing stress and contributing to better patient care.

Having the performance and reliability of Azure NetApp Files means we can better support our organization, providers, and patients.
