The Station often wishes he had time to do more use-case stories here in this blog and in the pages of eWEEK. After all, these are the stories of people on the front lines of IT, talking about their experiences. What better lessons from which to learn, than from what's really happening.
Today we're doing a use case story about a health-care provider that has become a national leader on the records storage front. Geisinger Health System is that leader, and CommVault is its preferred storage system.
Geisinger, a large health-care system of hospitals and patient care services founded in 1915 in Pennsylvania but serving a large section of the Eastern Seaboard, is dedicated to health care, education, research and service spanning 43 counties, a massive 20,000 square miles and an even more impressive 2.6 million people.
And that equates to a lot of health records: documents, data and graphics. Nonetheless, this huge enterprise is also showing how it's done in pushing archaic medical records practices into the 21st century in serving all those patients.
