Valley Health provides healthcare services for residents in Virginia, West Virginia, and Maryland through six hospitals and related facilities. It wanted a reliable way to send 12-lead electrocardiogram (EKG) data between ambulances and hospitals to notify the catheterization lab before a patient’s arrival. This would enable Valley Health to treat patients sooner and minimize muscle damage during a heart attack.
Valley Health enabled wireless, two-way transmission of EKG data, electronic health records, and other lab tests using an IT architecture based on Dell PowerEdge* servers and Dell Latitude* tablets and laptops with Intel® vPro™ technology.
