HP wins cloud deal Down Under

Orion Health picks HP's infrastructure as a service

By Jason Stamper

Orion Health, a New Zealand-based player in health information exchange (HIE), electronic health records (EHR) and healthcare integration solutions, has selected HP Converged Cloud to support its global managed health services.

HP said it is providing Orion Health with a scalable and secure virtual infrastructure that is based on HP CloudSystem Matrix, an Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) for private and hybrid cloud environments.

This enables customers to provision their infrastructure for physical and virtual environments. By implementing HP CloudSystem Solutions and HP Cloud Maps Solutions, Orion Health will have the flexibility to deliver cloud services that are tailored for each of its customers, the firms said.

"Through a combination of HP Cloud Maps and Orion Health Managed Services, we will be able to quickly build a comprehensive catalogue of applications for simple deployment, reducing the time to deliver a new application," said Paul Cunningham, chief technical architect, Orion Health. "By selecting HP, Orion Health will have the flexibility to deliver cloud services that are tailored for each customer on demand, and will be more agile and efficient while maintaining industry compliance and security standards."

Clinicians, provider facilities and original equipment manufacturing (OEM) partners rely on Orion Health to facilitate data exchange between hospitals, health systems, HIEs, EHRs, and affiliated providers and medical devices.

The firm said the HP cloud will help it increase performance and availability, while maintaining compliance and meeting regulatory requirements by hosting sensitive and private data on-site in a secure environment. It also said it should be able to lower administration costs by enabling individual administrators to manage both virtual and physical resources using the same set of tools.
