HealthcareArrayeClinicalArray Networks has announced that eClinicalWorks, a company that specializes in ambulatory clinical systems, is now using its AppVelocity (APV) server load balancer and application delivery controller to support its medical record and management solutions for healthcare providers. According to Array, eClinicalWorks’ customers now benefit from increased productivity with a boost in customer response time for clinical tasks while providing secure, reliable 24×7 access for healthcare providers.

eClinicalWorks selected the Array APV platform to ensure a dependable solution for its cloud-hosted application infrastructure. Array Networks stated that eClinicalWorks’ customers are benefiting from an enhancement in medical practice productivity while reducing costs and keeping confidential patient records secure. Physicians, health centers and hospitals who are eClinicalWorks’ customers use the solution to manage patient records and maximize healthcare quality with the registry reporting and clinical support features. This cloud-hosted solution also enables physicians and other medical personnel to effectively access patient records anywhere to communicate with referring physicians or share consult notes and clinical data.

“We selected Array’s solution because it enhances our software offering and allows our customers to increase productivity without sacrificing patient care or security,” said Matthew Lewis, director of IT for eClinicalWorks.

Array Networks APV application delivery controllers provide constant, SSL-encrypted access to the eClinicalWorks software applications. The load balancing feature efficiently distributes web and application traffic for high availability and minimal downtime which results in reducing common query operations by 50 percent and decreasing server-side connections by as much as fifteen times. In addition, the APV product line exceeds HIPAA and Sarbanes-Oxley Standards.

“We are pleased to work with a company that provides such an important service to the healthcare industry,” said Sunil Cherian, vice president of product marketing for Array Networks. “After thorough testing in Dell Computer’s technology lab, the APV product received certification approval by eClinicalWorks — once again demonstrating our proven track record in enterprise secure application delivery.”
