Presented by Radu Craioveanu, Director of Software Development, Clinical Systems, Fresenius Medical Care at MongoDB Evenings New England 2017.
resenius is a large healthcare enterprise, specializing in dialysis care. Fresenius' 40,000 clinicians and physicians deliver over 100,000 dialysis treatments per day, across 8 time zones. There is significant pressure to improve treatment outcomes, lower costs, expand the patient coverage, and overall become a Value Based Services provider, sharing the risk with the payers, the insurance companies. This pressures requires Fresenius to adapt, change, and leverage technologies and processes that can enable a rapid transformation to Value Based Care. </br></br>Using technologies and partnerships with players such as MongoDB, Red Hat, and others with a similar, open source innovative approach to progress, Fresenius has been able to implement a healthcare platform that is the foundation onto which the business can transform itself.
MongoDB has enabled Fresenius to achieve high availability of systems across multiple data centers, a data lake concept used for predictive analytics and reporting, enhanced messaging capabilities, fast, effective and distributed archiving, rapid application development via MEAN stacks, and Red Hat Open Shift Docker Container ready-to-use persistence.
