After extensive evaluation, Goliath was selected to monitor and manage St. Luke’s EHR applications and the supporting infrastructure
BETHLEHEM, PA– July 15, 2014–Goliath Technologies, the leading provider of Proactive IT Operations solutions to monitor, analyze, report, and remediate performance issues in today’s complex virtual server, virtual desktop, and hybrid cloud infrastructures, announced today that St. Luke’s University Health Network selected Goliath’s performance monitoring solutions for their EHR application delivery infrastructure.
“Working with Goliath was refreshing. We challenged Goliath to prove their ‘Proactive IT Operations’ claims by resolving issues related to Citrix, McKesson, and AllScripts. They spared us their marketing rhetoric, installed their product within one day, began trending analysis, and quickly suggested fix actions. In approximately one week, support tickets dropped by 25% based on their suggested remediation actions,” said Chad Brisendine, VP/CIO at St. Luke’s University Health Network. “We are in the process of implementing Epic and as part of the rollout we intend to utilize Goliath to ensure that the Citrix application delivery infrastructure is functioning optimally for our go-live date.” Chad Brisendine will be the featured presenter on Goliath’s upcoming webinar: “CIO Insight: Aligning Citrix Delivery Infrastructure with EHR/EMR Applications”.
Brisendine will discuss his holistic IT philosophy that aligns the EHR/EMR applications with the supporting Citrix IT delivery infrastructure. He will also describe how he ensures a consistent end user experience with AllScripts, McKesson, and soon, Epic by stabilizing the IT infrastructure and structuring his IT group to support the health network’s business objectives.
