Hackensack migrates EHR workloads to Google Cloud

Edison, N.J.-based Hackensack Meridian Health has moved its EHR playground workload from its on-premise environment to Google Cloud. 

The health system's EHR playground workload is a software environment that allows onboarding residents and nursing students to practice placing orders and writing patient notes without using patient data, according to an Oct. 9 news release from Google. 

The move, according to Google, will improve the clinician and patient experience, and allow Hackensack to access and analyze data from multiple sources.

"Now that we've moved significant data, applications workload, and other IT resources from on-premise to Google Cloud, we're seeing increased agility, improved reliability, and increased security," Kash Patel, executive vice president and chief digital information officer of the health system, said in the release. "Data is at the core of how we are modernizing healthcare, and having all of our EHR workloads and other significant data sources on Google Cloud will help enable us to gain more insights from our data, and introduce new services based on analytics and innovation."

The health system also plans to move its other EHR workloads to Google Cloud over the next three years.
