Shields Health Solutions is a specialty pharmacy integrator and accelerator for hospital leaders who want to provide a specialty pharmacy program that provides fully integrated comprehensive on-site care.
With three on-staff Microsoft engineers serving more than 1,500 people, Shields Health Solutions needed a partner to increase the capacity of their IT team; especially after the company added 400 new hires and several new hospital system customers, all within five short months.
Because of their long-standing partnership with M3COM, they already had a plan in place.
“As a decision maker, I look for companies who don’t just offer a service, but who are partners with us,” says Derek Costa, Vice President of IT Infrastructure and CISO. “The way that M3COM engages with us isn’t typical of a solution provider. They are as invested in our success as our own employees.”
Shields Health Solutions leverages M3COM for IT infrastructure, which includes utilizing a VMware environment to stand up their virtual databases. They also take advantage of immutable backups, Zerto data replication, and a warm standby environment at M3COM’s Chicago data center.
