Executive Summary

The Greater Philadelphia health system recently selected HP for its converged medical infrastructure (CMI) platform and is using GE Healthcare's PACS and radiology information system (RIS). This report on that experience provides lessons learned and guidance for healthcare providers considering building a converged medical infrastructure.

  • The industry drivers and challenges leading healthcare providers to migrate to a converged medical infrastructure.
  • The benefits, both quantitative and qualitative, experienced by University of Pennsylvania Health System (Penn Medicine), a Philadelphia-based academic medical center, that invested in HP's and GE Healthcare's converged medical infrastructure solution.
  • Lessons learned and guidance for healthcare providers considering building a converged medical infrastructure (CMI).
CMI is defined as an integrated platform with multiple components that combine to provide efficiencies to the provider IT environment; storage, a key component of CMI, is the focus of this paper and the Penn Medicine case study. To meet these objectives, IDC Health Insights conducted an in-depth interview with the Deputy Director of Radiology Informatics at Penn Medicine.
