Implementing an EHR system is a complex undertaking, but Logicalis has been the trusted IT advisor and solutions integrator for healthcare organizations, including MultiCare and NorthShore, which have both received the prestigious HIMSS Nicholas E. Davies Award of Excellence in the implementation and value from health information technology, specifically EHR. NorthShore University HealthSystem is also one of only two healthcare organizations in the country to reach a Stage 7 EMR Health Systems status.
Customers are enthusiastic about Logicalis’ work. Logicalis designed and implemented disaster recovery so that NorthShore University HealthSystem could confidently support its fully electronic EHR systems.
Once you take away paper charts and all the records are electronic, people get very nervous about downtime. That’s why we needed a back-up plan we can bring up in a short period of time,” said Steve Foley, NorthShore University HealthSystem assistant vice president of technical services. Logicalis helped us make sure the plans we had for running the DR process were technically feasible.”
Logicalis and Avnet Technology Solutions work closely together to bring premier solutions to market for the healthcare industry,” said David Hutchinson, director of healthcare solutions, Avnet Technology Solutions, Americas. Healthcare IT managers can rest assured that Logicalis has both the healthcare industry experience and the technology infrastructure knowledge required to create a successful outcome for their customers.”
