Kliniken Des Landkreises L?rrach Enhances Patient Care and Cuts Costs With SAP and IBM

Free registration required

Executive Summary

Kliniken des Landkreises L?rrach serves the local population with both in and outpatient general healthcare. The company wanted to improve both business and clinical efficiency. Users found that SAP applications were slow to respond to their requests, as the underlying database had reached its performance limit. The system could not be extended or developed, and the database had to be taken offline for maintenance. Healthcare legislation requires that records are retained for 30 years, and increasing data volumes presented an additional challenge. The hospital implemented the latest SAP applications and selected IBM DB2 running under Red Hat Enterprise Linux on the IBM BladeCenter platform. It also chose IBM System Storage and IBM System x hardware to support a new storage area network for clinical imaging.
