With the help of IBM and Advanced Technology Services Group (ATS), the hospital implemented a solution to enable compliance with stringent HIPPA regulations. The solution was created using a dual-site IT infrastructure that used IBM servers and IBM System Storage hardware. By allowing ATS to revamp its main data center and implement a business continuity and resiliency site, the hospital has dramatically improved its system availability, performance, responsiveness, and scalability. These improvements have enabled the Kings County Hospital Center to process and admit patients more quickly.
