Tennessee Oncology Speeds Access to Critical Electronic Medical Records

Tennessee Oncology is one of the nation’s largest, community-based cancer care practices and leading clinical trial networks in the U.S. with more than 30 locations. Caring for cancer patients is at the core of everything they do, and that requires assured access to critical applications like electronic medical records (EMR) and practice management and scheduling systems. Therefore, Tennessee Oncology must have a rock-solid wide-area network (WAN), but it’s previous router-based approach had become too problematic to manage and provided almost no visibility. By deploying the Unity EdgeConnect SD-WAN edge platform, can easily classify EMR traffic to give it the high priority it needs. EdgeConnect also allowed Tennessee Oncology to shift from high-cost carrier circuits to commodity WAN circuits, retiring routers and gaining a much more resilient infrastructure for its users, eliminating WAN disruptions and helping the IT team sleep better at night.
