Cancer Treatment Centers deploy HP IT
Cancer Treatment Centers of America (CTCA), a network of U.S. hospitals providing cancer treatment, has upgraded its entire technology infrastructure to Hewlett Packard (HP) ProLiant servers.

CTCA depends on its technology infrastructure for operating its EMRs, specialized clinical programs, customer relationship management and enterprise resource planning applications. Its systems allow the organization to maintain all-digital operations with 100 percent uptime, according to the Palo Alto, Calif.-based company.

To date, CTCA has deployed more than 500 HP ProLiant servers, including 200 blade servers, in its production and disaster recovery sites. The CTCA environment runs on a combination of HP ProLiant DL580, DL380, DL560, BL460c, BL480c and BL260c servers.

The network also uses an HP Insight Control management console for a 24/7 view of its infrastructure. In addition to monitoring server health and performance, the console aids in deploying new servers.

CTCA serves patients with advanced cancer at facilities located in suburban Chicago, Philadelphia, Tulsa, Okla., and suburban Phoenix. The network said it plans to invest in additional HP servers in the coming years on a project-by-project basis.
