Mercy Technology Services (MTS), the IT backbone of one of the largest Catholic health systems in the nation, announced it has achieved “Cloud Verified” status from VMware, a global leader in cloud computing technology.
MTS is part of a global network of VMware Cloud Providers, a group of more than 4,500 organizations in over 120 countries who serve as third-party vendors for VMware cloud technology. MTS is one of only 50 members of this group to be Cloud Verified, and is the only health care provider to attain this certification.
With help from Mercy Technology Services (MTS), Tupelo-based North Mississippi Health Services (NMHS) successfully launched a new Epic electronic health record (EHR) last month, rolling the system out in NMHS’ ambulatory care locations. NMHS now uses Epic across its regional network of primary and specialty clinics and nursing homes, as well as for its telehealth services.
An early adopter of electronic health record (EHR) technology, St. Louis’ Mercy health system has collected a massive amount of clinical data over the past decade, drawn from more than 11.5 million patient records. Throughout that time, Mercy Technology Services (MTS) – Mercy’s IT backbone – has been developing new ways to analyze that data, helping drive decisions that improve patient care.
