The Brooklyn Hospital Center
170 year old hospital provides cutting-edge IT technology to clinicians.
The Brooklyn Hospital Center (TBHC) began caring for the community, especially its poorest and most vulnerable members, in 1845. Occupying the same 19th-century buildings of its early days, TBHC continues to provide compassionate, quality care to the underserved in Brooklyn and the surrounding New York City boroughs.
With more people than ever relying on TBHC, it must continually find ways to stretch Medicaid and Medicare dollars further while maintaining its standard of excellence. An advocate for the underserved, TBHC also wants to become more involved in national healthcare initiatives related to this cause.
To help achieve these objectives and broaden its mission of care, TNHC began investigating ways to make IT work harder, smarter, and more cost-efficiently for the hospital.
TBHC deployed its first FlexPod Datacenter solution at a temporary site while its primary data center site underwent structural, power, and cooling renovations. Up and running in two weeks, the solution includes a two-node NetApp FAS8040 storage cluster with NetApp Flash Cache™ and Flash Pool™ intelligent caching.
“With faster, more reliable access to patient records, our doctors and nurses can now spend more time treating patients,” says Moran “We already have a 92% clinician approval rating.”
About this Customer
History has it that TBHC was inspired by a man who broke his leg near Brooklyn City Hall. Unable to find local care, his only option was to go to the almshouse four miles away. Incorporated by the New York state legislature, TBHC began caring for the community, especially its poorest and most vulnerable members, in 1845. It also tended to sick and wounded soldiers returning from the Civil War, the Spanish-American War, and World War I and II.
