A public university and health center is committed to delivering world class care to its customers.  ePlus plays a crucial role in helping the customer utilize technology as a business enabler to significantly enhance patient care. 

Business Challenge

  • CapEx and OpEx costs were unpredictable YoY and not aligned with the business.
  • IT has become an integral part of the patient-care contract. The customer needed to enable always-available access to electronic medical records (EMR), drive new sources of revenue and plan for declining reimbursements, and comply with industry regulations.
  • Time to value of technology adoption and remediation was too long, creating vulnerabilities to the business and the organization's intellectual property.
  • Exposed security vulnerabilities required public notice at a cost of $100M+.
  • Lengthy time to value of application deployment was threatening patient care.
