Here is Health Data Management’s weekly roundup of health IT contracts and deployments.

  • Moffitt Cancer Center is deploying a private enterprise network with packet optical technology from Ciena to improve collaboration between researchers and clinicians. The network will support electronic health records, medical imaging and molecular medicine modalities and will eliminate costs associated with multiple disparate networks. Connectivity between Moffitt locations and its two data centers is provided through dark fiber from FiberLight.

  • Children’s Mercy Kansas City has deployed 1 petabyte of new storage capacity to speed patient diagnosis and treatments while supporting pediatric whole genome sequencing. The vendor is DataDirect Networks. With more storage and accelerated sequencing technologies, the goal is to deliver genomic results to physicians within 26 hours.
  • The Department of Veterans Affairs has contracted with Underwriters Laboratories to improve the safety and security of beneficiaries through UL’s Cybersecurity Assurance Program. The vendor will work with VA’s Office of Information & Technology to refine existing and emerging standards, as well as practices related to connectable medical devices, medical device data systems and related health IT technologies.
  • Panorama Orthopedics & Spine Center in Golden, Colo., will use software from PinPointCare to manage its Medicare Bundled Payments program using a care coordination platform to risk-stratify patients prior to surgery and support the creation of personalized care plans. The software also enables care coordinators to identify and intervene when patients stray from the care plan.
