No Easy Way to Centralize Records

Skyline Urology relies on a Electronic Health Records system called UroChart. UroChart is accessed continually by up to 150 users a day across 25 different practices. Most locations ran their own server infrastructure meaning disparate support and no easy way to centralize records and data across the business. Performance varied significantly from practice to practice and overall satisfaction was low. UroChart had never been deployed into a cloud environment before. Over 3 million patient files needed to be stored securely under HIPAA compliance.

“The migration process was a positive experience for us. We felt like the situation was expertly and quickly handled and we were up and running in a short amount of time.”

Reducing the Current Server Footprint​

Estimates for non-cloud based solutions required $100,000 in upfront investment. Onica was able to propose a CAPEX free design within AWS significantly reducing the current server footprint. Onica rapidly provisioned the infrastructure, migrated data to the cloud and created a Microsoft Remote Application Publishing solution for UroChart. The new architecture has provided high availability and security. After Onica completed the cloud migration, Skyline Urology engaged with us for AWS Managed Services. As an audited AWS Managed Services Partner, Onica provides ongoing monthly AWS support for the UroChart environment to ensure its up and running 24/7.
