Network Hardware Resale Upgrades Sansum Clinic's Network Infrastructure

Feb 24, 2012 (Close-Up Media via COMTEX) -- Network Hardware Resale (NHR), a provider of pre-owned and new networking equipment, announced that it is working with Sansum Clinic to support its network infrastructure.

Sansum Clinic is a non-profit, outpatient healthcare provider between the Los Angeles Basin and San Francisco Bay area, the Company noted.

Showcasing its IT/Networking expertise for the healthcare industry, Network Hardware Resale helped Sansum Clinic implement a new electronic health record (EHR) platform from EPIC called "Wave", which creates a single and continuously updated electronic chart for each patient. The highly secure platform enables records to be complete and accessible by healthcare providers from anywhere at any time. The resulting network strategy included migrating Sansum Clinic's older legacy network gear to Cisco, building a best-of-breed platform that could serve as the underlying technology to support the new EHR system.



Working with Network Hardware Resale, Sansum Clinic achieved: -Purchased pre-owned Cisco switches and routers, saving an estimated $1.1 million in hardware costs (over Cisco list price) since 2009 -With NHR's NetSure, Sansum Clinic is saving $57,000 annually in maintenance fees -The expertise, speed and agility of the Network Hardware Resale team enabled Sansum Clinic to achieve its migration goals faster than originally anticipated "Deep networking expertise, speed of service and product availability provided by Network Hardware Resale fueled our ability to rapidly migrate to our EHR platform and upgrade our IT infrastructure," said Donovan Wade, Manager of Technology Services, Sansum Clinic. "All in all, Network Hardware Resale has allowed us to move even faster to get to where we needed to go with reliable networking equipment." "Our work with Sansum Clinic is a great example of how we leverage the right resources to compose a network infrastructure that fits the needs of the customer while enabling them to adapt to changes and new organizational demands," said Mike Sheldon, president and CEO of Network Hardware Resale. "The cost savings realized by Sansum Clinic from using pre-owned networking equipment allowed it to focus on and prioritize other IT initiatives as well as speed up its EHR migration."
