The Trust’s IT team is expected to use the platform to manage, monitor and support over 3,000 networked machines to ensure that the hospital staff have uninterrupted access to resources such as patient information, records and online services.
Trust said that, by using the Kaseya platform, IT tasks and procedures such as patch management, asset management and network upgrades will be planned, automated and analysed remotely, so they are completed without adversely impacting day-to-day operations.
The Kaseya IT automation platform is expected to play a key role in helping the Hospital comply with the hardware audits demanded by the NHS Infrastructure Maturity Model, which requires that hospitals know the location and status of all IT equipment and must report on this.
Phil Sansom, VP of sales in UK at Kaseya, said: “The initial Kaseya deployment at Liverpool Women’s Hospital significantly improved the level of service that the Trust could provide its users as engineers respond to problems in more strategic and efficient ways. To replicate this at Alder Hey not only means an even better service for patients, but also a more streamlined and cost effective IT function for the whole Trust.”
