In South Florida, Gastro Health is known for providing patients with quality medical and preventative care in the field of gastroenterology. They are a group of
board-certified physicians, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, nutritionists, and technicians spread out across 35 locations.

THE NEED

  • Connections between Gastro Health’s central data center, backup facilities, and remote office locations to facilitate Electronic Medical Records (EMR) use.

  • Greater network access and reliability to support EMR and improve patient care.

  • Ease and flexibility to grow and expand their network into the future.

Crown Castle Fiber has helped us develop a vision for our growing network, and their network engineers have become an extension of our IT department. They genuinely cared about Gastro Health and its patients’ safety.

THE SOLUTION

  • We connected the main office with nine of their remote locations via a
    multi-point Switched Ethernet and Dedicated Internet Access (DIA) service.

  • The main office is equipped with 1Gbps Ethernet access and 100Mbps internet access, while the remote locations have various bandwidth options. All locations share the 100Mbps DIA circuit.

  • Each site has a GigE interface to accommodate future growth and demand.

THE IMPACT

  • With nine of Gastro Health’s sites currently connected through Crown Castle Fiber’s network, they are able to offer EMR hosting as a service.

  • Crown Castle Fiber’s intra-metro latency of sub 5ms allows Gastro Health to fully utilize their Committed Information Rate (CIR) and deliver superior service with minimal delay.

  • Gastro has the infrastructure in place to add more locations and increase bandwidth at a minimal cost—and without disruption to current locations.
