As the only full-service acute-care hospital in Bellevue, Washington, 349-bed Overlake Medical Center serves a large and growing population with primary care, urgent care, specialty medical clinic, and a trauma center in the Puget Sound area. In 2013, Overlake made a major investment to modernize its electronic medical records (EMR) system, migrating from its existing system to Epic EMR.
With NetApp All Flash FAS, physicians, nursing staff, and other support staff will have much more immediate access to their data. This will enable them to get their documentation completed much faster. All of this adds up to more time they're able to spend with patients.

The Overlake Clinical Informatics team uses its Epic EMR system to create reports showing how physicians are executing specific performance measures. When analyzed effectively, the data available from an Epic EMR can reveal long-term trends, help clinicians identify patients who might develop complications, and pinpoint ways to ensure excellent care. The IT team was pleased with the NetApp technology it was using for its virtual desktop infrastructure, so the team looked to NetApp to support its new EMR.
NetApp All Flash FAS provides the infrastructure to simplify and automate IT operations and support the system, ensuring that physicians have real-time access to data and that business efficiency is improved.
