Electronic Medical Records and Data Centers

The Obama administration wants health care providers to transition to a paperless records system, which will force hospitals and doctor’s offices to assess whether their data centers are prepared for the demands of electronic medical records. Emerson Network Power worked with BayCare Health System, which operates nine hospitals in the Tampa Bay area, during the organization’s seven-year transition to electronic records. In this video, Peter Panfil, vice president and GM for Liebert AC Power Business, discusses how a shift to electronic records creates additional challenges and requirements in IT infrastructure. This video runs about 2 minutes, 45 seconds.
