Dell Services Wins Aecus Innovation Award for Cloud Solutions in Healthcare
PLANO, Texas and LONDON, September 14, 2016 – Dell Services has been recognized for innovation in outsourcing with an award from Aecus, a European-based consulting firm. The Aecus Innovation Awards seek to identify “Innovation in Outsourcing” and celebrate the best examples of service providers, technology providers and their clients working together, in new ways that create value.
Dell Services was awarded for its cloud, mobility and managed services engagement with Locala Community Partnerships in the U.K.
“We’re honored to be recognized for our work with European healthcare leaders like Locala,” said Dan Allison, vice president and global general manager of Dell Services’ healthcare and life sciences (HCLS) division. “Our organization is dedicated to delivering insights and solutions that help hospitals, health plans, physicians and consumers around the world meet the challenges presented by the new digital healthcare model.”
Healthcare provider boosts care with the cloud
Locala Community Partnerships provides healthcare services primarily through health centers and home visits. Locala wanted to integrate technology to give patients in remote locations the option of virtual visits and boost caregiver access to real-time patient data while in the field. Dell proposed a platform to change the way Locala used technology to deliver healthcare services. They not only replaced laptops and mobile devices, but continue to manage and service them on an ongoing basis.
Dell Services designed a private cloud environment to keep patient and healthcare data highly accessible and secure at all times. Built on Dell enterprise hardware and networking solutions and hosted by Dell, the platform provides reliable access to clinical applications. Additionally, the new solution enables Locala to offer e-consultations to patients virtually.
“We’re using technology to offer residents great choice and flexibility in the way they receive treatment,” said Jim Barwick, executive director strategy, planning & partnerships at Locala Community Partnerships. “The big advantage of the private cloud solution from Dell is that we can focus on delivering healthcare services rather than IT. Dell designed the hardware platform for the cloud environment and took control of delivery and maintenance. The solution is reliable and performs well, enabling us to deliver better patient care.”
As one of the leading providers of end-to-end IT solutions for healthcare worldwide, Dell Services Healthcare and Life Sciences helps healthcare organizations simplify administration, coordinate and manage patient care, transition from episodic care to prevention and wellness management, and ultimately deliver more personalized medicine. For the seventh consecutive year, information technology research and advisory company, Gartner, ranked Dell Services as No. 1 in Global IT Services for Healthcare Providers based on 2015 revenue1.1 Gartner, Inc., Market Share: IT Services, 2015, Kathryn Hale et al, April 6, 2016
