LYNX Medical Systems Expands Use of NTT America Enterprise Hosting Platform
New York, NY & Bellevue, WA — LYNX Medical Systems (LYNX), a leading provider of emergency medicine documentation and revenue management solutions, and NTT America (NTTA), a wholly owned U.S. subsidiary of NTT Communications Corporation and a global enterprise hosting infrastructure services provider, today announced an arrangement for expanded hosting of LYNX’s software on the NTTA enterprise hosting platform. This relationship allows LYNX to continue development of Emergency Department content, documentation and financial software, while leveraging the security, flexibility and scalability of the NTT America hosting environment.
LYNX software and data reside at the NTTA datacenter in Sterling, VA, thereby eliminating the need and expense of additional computer hardware for LYNX or its clients. The LYNX interface integrates seamlessly with the client hospital system to securely store patient data while providing immediate access for authorized hospital personnel. NTTA and LYNX developed and implemented this highly customized service arrangement for LYNX clients to ensure world-class performance, coupled with maximum data reliability, integrity and protection.
“As part of a comprehensive commitment to our clients, LYNX partnered with NTT America to establish a flexible remote hosting solution,” said Brian Meyers, LYNX director of Client Operations. “This arrangement provides LYNX and our clients with a stable, robust and highly secure remote hosting environment.”
“Software-as-a-service is one of the fastest growing sectors in the software industry. Its rapid growth has been fueled by solutions like those delivered by LYNX Medical Systems,” said Don Goodwin, NTT America vice president of Sales and Marketing, Enterprise Hosting. “We see a strong synergy between the LYNX business model and NTT America’s robust Hosting Infrastructure and Managed Service capabilities here in the U.S. and across the globe.”
