Using IBM Power Systems, software as a service health care provider CipherHealth has been able to better run its health care platform with improved data processing and lower costs.
“Companies can help minimize infrastructure cost by leveraging the performance and reliability of IBM Power Systems for data-rich workloads," IBM Systems Linux and Open Source Offering Manager Chuck Bryan said in a release.
CipherHealth’s platform is a tool for health care providers to better serve their patients and reduce re-admissions. It engages patients throughout their experience, beginning before hospitalization and continuing through post-discharge.
IBM Power Systems improves upon x86 processors with double the performance per core and four times the memory bandwidth and number of hardware threads. It has improved New York-based CipherHealth’s data processing times by nearly 90 percent.
“Our platform requires high reliability and accessibility at all times, which were hard to achieve through our existing x86-based hosted services,” CipherHealth co-founder Zach Silverzweig said in the release. “Since deploying the IBM solution, we’ve experienced two to three times the performance at half the price. More importantly, our Power Systems infrastructure is enabling us to focus on delivering innovative products to millions of patients across the U.S.”
