Kettering Medical Center Network
A major Ohio hospital network turned the need for HIPAA compliance into an opportunity to get a complete network security assessment from Symantec Consulting Services. As a result of this assessment, Kettering Medical Center Network implemented a broad suite of Symantec security solutions which has resulted in greatly enhanced security. The solution is also saving $218,000 annually in staff time for security monitoring and repairs, and has freed IT staff to develop an application that enables medical professionals to sign on to the network more simply wherever their patients are located This application will save as many as 1,500 staff hours per day, enabling these providers to provide more and higher quality care to patients.
