Building a Robust and Scalable IT Infrastructure for General Physician, PC

Introduction

General Physician, PC is a WNY based healthcare organization offering primary care and cancer care. With over 160 providers across 140 locations, General Physician employs over 2,000 individuals and is known for its rapid growth trajectory.

The Challenge

In addition to General Physician’s rapid growth, strict healthcare compliance requirements called for a strong and robust technological backbone that could easily cater to the healthcare organization’s expansion. The existing network lacked necessary design and capacity to handle both the physical and data growth. COVID-19 further exposed General Physician’s infrastructure as it was not equipped to service patients digitally. Additional challenges surrounding cybersecurity and risks associated with growing cyber attacks were also top of mind. MVP was called upon to address these challenges that had potential to stand in the way of the company’s growth.
