How CNOS Solves Healthcare IT Problems with Meraki

CNOS, the Center for Neurosciences, Orthopaedics, & Spine, is a multi-specialty clinic that serves nearly 500 patients per day in Iowa, Nebraska, and South Dakota. With an IT staff of three, CNOS had an aging infrastructure that could no longer handle the demands of their growing business. If changes weren’t made, more staff would need to be hired.

We combined Cisco Meraki and Cisco UCS + Nimble Storage solutions and effectively transformed the IT focus of CNOS, allowing them to focus on their desired business goals.

Outcomes included:

  • Moving IT from reactive to proactive
  • Ability to spot potential issues before they impact business
  • Faster, more reliable system for end users
  • Management gaining visibility into what is going on inside the network
