Shared IT and Amazon Web Services


Case Studies

Case Study: Renew ENT & Hearing Center

The Challenge

Renew ENT had been working with a traditional hosting facility to manage file sharing and applications support (including NextGen Healthcare software). Through various acquisitions the support and hosting fell below an acceptable level, while the cost skyrocketed. Renew ENT was left struggling with poor performance and support.

The Solution

Shared IT offered Renew ENT an alternative platform on AWS EC2 that removed the costs associated with traditional hosting. The first week after migrating to AWS, files were deleted, and Shared IT was able to recover them within minutes. Renew ENT has access from anywhere with scalability and flexibility. They have been able to upgrade to the latest version of Windows and abandon their dated servers during the transition. Reliability rose significantly to past 99.99%. Performance has improved by 10x - with page population loading in 2 seconds or less.

The Benefits

NextGen Software runs smoother which has enhanced the performance of the practice. AWS drives cost down by allowing the computing to be resized as needed and turned off at night. Security increased with the new AWS EC2 platform by creating private connections. Renew ENT now uses their enhanced work performance to focus on their core business: the patient.

Case Study: Carolina Asthma and Allergy Center

The Challenge

Carolina Asthma and Allergy Center needed a stable system. The computer hosting in place for their 13 locations was not sufficient. Multiple weekly outages resulted in downtime that impacted patient care.

The Solution

Shared IT put in place Amazon EC2 instances to power the applications that allow the client to care for patients. All 13 locations securely connect to the powerful, yet flexible, EC2 instances. Shared IT and Amazon EC2 provide 99.99% uptime, creating the stable platform that they require to serve patients.

The Benefits

Carolina Asthma and Allergy Center reduced employee downtime and patient inconvenience by having Shared IT power their technology through Amazon EC2. Providers can stay focused on care with no interruptions during office visits.
