The migration to Microsoft Azure could deliver millions in savings
Accenture will collaborate with New York City’s largest academic medical system to help devise and securely execute its strategic cloud migration of clinical applications, including its Epic electronic health records system. Microsoft will provide quality assurance throughout this landmark academic center’s Azure migration process. Accenture, together with Avanade, its joint venture with Microsoft, will help lead the development and implementation of the underlying Azure architecture on which the solution is being built.
In addition, Accenture will provide hybrid cloud managed services post migration. The managed services will include around-the-clock server management and support for migrated workloads; storage and backup operations; database support; and automation and analytics.
Mount Sinai is building on its ongoing innovation efforts using artificial intelligence within clinical care and research. For example, its Mount Sinai Clinical Intelligence Center is focused on finding ways to use digital tools to fight COVID-19. This strategic migration to Microsoft Azure will further expand MSHS’ continued mission to bring AI-enabled products from bench to bedside.
“Mount Sinai is a world-class academic medical system that continuously pushes the boundaries of innovation through education and research and modernizing its infrastructure on Microsoft Azure will expand its ability to enhance patient engagement, empower health team collaboration, improve clinical informatics and realize operational efficiencies all on our secure cloud,” said Patty Obermaier, vice president, US Health and Life Sciences, Microsoft. “We are honored to work with Mount Sinai, Accenture and Avanade to facilitate Mount Sinai’s migration to the cloud.”
