  • Dell Services gives Max Healthcare the ‘Cloud’ Advantage

    Published on September 2, 2010

    Dell Services and Max Healthcare  announced Dell Services has converted the information technology infrastructure of all eight Max Healthcare facilities into a private MPLS (Multi-Protocol Label Switching) cloud running remotely from Dell Services Data Centre in Noida. This cloud infrastructure deployment makes Max Healthcare one of the most technologically advanced Healthcare chains in India with a near plug ‘n’ play capability for information technology deployment as they add more hospitals/facilities to their network. Further, the private cloud improves the availability of their healthcare information systems and analytical tools and sets the stage for the rollout of Electronic Health Records (EHR) for enhanced patient care.

    In September 2009, Max Healthcare and Dell Services, formerly Perot Systems, entered into a 10-year agreement valued at USD 20 Million (Over INR 90 Crore) under which Dell Services provides infrastructure management and EHR implementation to Max Healthcare. Dell Services manages all IT operations for Max Healthcare, including infrastructure management, data hosting, applications portfolio management, project management office, service desk and clinical adoption of VistA EHR system (an EHR platform developed by the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs). Dell Services has completed the migration of the information technology infrastructure for the eight Max Healthcare hospitals to the Dell Services Data Centre in Noida. Max Healthcare’s Health Information System (HIS), which forms its business backbone as well as all other software applications are now operating on a private cloud.

    Benefits to Max Healthcare

    Dell Services has provided a robust cloud infrastructure to enable Max Healthcare to take on the load of EHR and Computerized Physician Order Entry. Max Healthcare hospitals are already experiencing an enhanced stability of the IT environment, better availability of HIS and data analytics tools. The private MPLS cloud allows Max Healthcare to set up its process and tools at new facilities easily, as these facilities would get access to Max’s HIS by just hooking up to the cloud. The private MPLS cloud will help Max Healthcare as it expands its capacities and footprint across India.
