Mercy to offer healthcare cloud service to other hospitals

Saint Louis-based Mercy Technology Services, the IT arm of Aurora, Mo.-based Mercy health system, will launch a healthcare cloud service in spring 2018.

Mercy Technology Services, which provides and manages technology solutions for Mercy, plans to launch a cloud service powered by VMware's cloud infrastructure and management solutions. Mercy Technology Services said its cloud service is tailored to the healthcare industry and supported by its HIPAA-compliant data centers, where it hosts Mercy's estimated 1,200 healthcare applications, including its Epic EHR.

"Healthcare's tech leaders want to migrate to get the cloud's benefits without the cloud's risks, but a good solution has been hard to find," said Scott Richert, vice president of enterprise infrastructure at Mercy Technology Services. "This is the same equipment I'd buy for my enterprise data centers, with the same high service standard we hold for ourselves."
