Growing Doesn’t Have to be a Pain


A dermatology practice in Columbus, Georgia.

July 31, 2016


This dermatology practice had been doing it right since they first opened their doors. So right, in fact, that the clinic had plans to move to a newly-built facility. But the move also meant that the clinic had to expand its technology infrastructure with a new phone system, wireless access, and network assets configured to make sure critical medical data is always available.


To achieve these goals, SPINEN:

  • Deployed a Cisco UC560 Phone system with 50 phones using standard “wired” phones as well as phones that can use the secure wireless network for “anywhere in the building” functionality.
  • Configured Cisco “Clean Air” wireless access points featuring self healing wireless technology to prevent interference from devices such as Bluetooth, microwaves, and medical devices.
  • Set up a fully redundant medical records environment leveraging HP SAN (network storage) and VMware (virtualization).
  • Provided encrypted offsite backups to the SPINEN Data Center with failover capability to servers in the SPINEN Cloud.
  • Segmented the network to isolate video surveillance, HVAC systems, telephone, and data to meet HIPAA requirements and to maximize network security and performance.
  • Helped save on capital expenditure and ongoing management costs by using HP thin client solutions to run EMR software in exam rooms and nurse stations. The low cost of thin clients, together with the ability to make simultaneous updates to multiple machines remotely, help save the client time and money when configuration changes are needed.
