Cisco ACI Ecosystem Brings Digital Innovation to Dutch Healthcare

Healthcare costs are rising globally and making it increasingly difficult for patients to get the care they need. In the Netherlands, one very specific non-profit organization, VECOZO, was founded to maintain cost control in the Dutch Healthcare sector. VECOZO operates the national portal for data exchange (entitlement check and billing and other services) between healthcare providers and insurers.

Challenge: Network Insight Needed to Meet New Demands

In 2016, VECOZO processed over two billion digital messages across 30 services with 42,000 connected health providers (118,000 users) and processed digital invoices totaling €69 billion. As customers across the care chain demanded more access, VECOZO ran into a steep rise in new application needs and increased network traffic. A new IT model was needed. Key requirements included faster time to market and 24/7 uptime.

“Building out infrastructure could take many weeks depending on our specialists’ availability,” explains team leader, André Beerendonk. “Our services must run with zero interruption, but we had no real network insight. That made it harder to ensure uptime and control the user experience due to mission critical applications running on top of its IT infrastructure.”

VECOZO needed a new infrastructure solution with minimal cost increase to maintain business continuity.

The Solution

To meet the growing demand for applications and the network loads in its data center, VECOZO chose to deploy a joint solution based on Cisco Application Centric Infrastructure (Cisco ACI™) and Citrix NetScaler as a next generation foundation. Spanning two data centers this joint solution combines Cisco and Citrix capabilities to enable rapid application deployment and services integration onto multi-tenant networks. Cisco ACI with Citrix NetScaler helped VECOZO boost application availability and performance through seamless integration of Citrix NetScaler’s programmable fabric with Cisco Application Policy Infrastructure Controller.
