Children's Mercy Hospital

Turns Digital Leader and Delivers World-Class Care with NetApp HCI

To deliver high-quality, compassionate pediatric care in the Midwest, and around the world, Children’s Mercy Hospital in Kansas City depends on NetApp® technology to make a life-saving difference. Because NetApp makes it easier for caregivers to access the latest healthcare information throughout the hospital, children and their parents receive world-class care.

David Chou, the hospital’s VP, CIO, and CDO, knows that the right technology can improve care and reduce costs. His vision included turning Children’s Mercy Hospital into a healthcare digital leader. He found exactly what he was looking for in NetApp HCI and the NetApp Data Fabric, which is NetApp’s strategy for simplifying and integrating the orchestration of data across hybrid multicloud environments.

NetApp HCI allows me the flexibility to scale. It allows me to increase performance, increase storage, based on my needs on demand. It allows me to adjust my technology solution based on the constantly changing needs of hospitals like ours.

Because hospitals handle and store ever-increasing amounts of data, one of the many reasons Chou selected NetApp HCI is that it can easily scale at a moment’s notice. NetApp HCI combined with the NetApp Data Fabric also makes it easy to switch workloads from on premises to the cloud without purchasing any additional software or hardware.

With more than 8,000 caregivers, Children’s Mercy Hospital makes sure that everyone associated with patient care can access the same information at the same time from anywhere on campus using a virtual desktop.
