CHARLOTTE, N.C. (March 1, 2018) – Flexential, a hybrid IT infrastructure provider, announced today that it will exhibit at the HIMSS 2018 conference and present alongside one of its valued customers, Moffitt Cancer Center. Flexential, which recently rebranded from Peak 10 + ViaWest, will showcase its suite of hybrid IT solutions that enable healthcare organizations to better manage patient information and meet the increasing demands of regulatory requirements, while maintaining a core focus on improving patient care. HIMSS 2018 will take place March 5-9, 2018, at The Venetian Convention Center in Las Vegas.
In the modern healthcare landscape, organizations need a trusted data center partner to support rapidly-evolving processes for enhancing patient care, quality and safety. More than 400 healthcare organizations across the country rely on Flexential’s colocation, connectivity, cloud, disaster recovery and professional services solutions to meet stringent compliance requirements and carry out the most demanding IT initiatives, from big data programs to protecting EMRs and EHRs.
“As one of the largest cancer centers in the country, it is critical for our operations to run securely and smoothly. When we evaluate partners, we look for more than just a technology provider – we look for an extension of our team that aligns with our mission,” said Jennifer Greenman, vice president and chief information officer at Moffitt. “Flexential is a key partner in delivering crucial colocation services and support to further our mission of preventing, treating and curing cancer, and I look forward to educating HIMSS attendees about what we’ve accomplished together.”
Alongside the shift to value-based care, healthcare organizations also face other challenges that are best addressed with the right IT infrastructure strategies in place. As a leader in healthcare IT, Flexential works with healthcare organizations to deliver solutions and expertise to address these common challenges, which include:
- Disaster recovery for EHRs to ensure that patient data is always replicated, available and secure.
- EMR and EHR application management, often involving legacy applications not compatible with the cloud that require uptime, redundancy and security.
- Revenue cycle management applications to enable collaboration between business and clinical operations by securely housing applications and ePHI.
- Virtual desktops and mobile devices to reduce hardware and licensing costs and deliver versatile patient care with compliant, scalable, and cloud solutions that support mobility.
- Big data analytics to reduce treatment costs and improve overall care.
- Ecommerce solutions that aggregate and deliver actionable data to better manage vendors and reduce costs.
At HIMSS, Mr. Fuhrman and Ms. Greenman will present “Journey From The Basement: Data Management Within Colocation” on Wednesday, March 7 from 2:30 – 3:30 p.m. PST at The Venetian Convention Center. During their discussion, Fuhrman and Greenman will provide attendees with a deeper look into colocation and the benefits it offers healthcare organizations, as well as how to identify the best IT partner.
“We are at a turning point in healthcare technology, and with the shift to value-based care, healthcare organizations must assess their current IT infrastructure strategy to ensure it benefits their company’s operations,” said Mike Fuhrman, chief product officer at Flexential. “I look forward to attending HIMSS and engaging with like-minded individuals who embrace innovation to improve operations and outcomes within healthcare.”
Additionally, Jason Carolan, chief cloud officer at Flexential, will present “DR On-Demand: Ounce of Prevention + Pound of Cure” at 4 p.m. PST on Tuesday, March 6 at HIMSS.
