Community Health Network Delivers Unprecedented Availability for Critical Healthcare Applications


Community Health Network (CHN) is one of the nation’s leading healthcare providers of an all-digital hospital.  Great idea, right?  Not having to wait around in an ER for less than stellar service from a stranger with an MD sounds incredibly appealing.  This type of healthcare combined with all the new medical technology advancements has data storage needs climbing faster than ever before.

CHN’s challenge was their reliance of their on-premises data servers.  Outages could cause major problems for effective patient care and that is unacceptable for CHN’s medical providers.  CHN wanted to be able to manage their storage, migrate data and implement new storage without any downtime – all without the option of the long weekend window.  Within the last 10 years, the volume of storage needed for each patient has grown significantly larger due to the increase of digital images associated with each person’s medical records.  And although CHN is a forerunner of healthcare innovation, they are not immune to HIPAA regulations. Every electronic medical record (EHR), Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI), and Computer Tomography (CT-scan) must be available to the provider in order for them to dispense the proper medical care for patients in a timely manner.  Since the need for medical attention and healthcare isn’t always convenient, CHN needed to scale their storage capacity considerably while simultaneously serving their patient’s needs 24/7/365.
