Boulder, Colo., February 22, 2012 - Circadence, a leading provider of WAN and network optimization solutions for commercial, healthcare and government customers, today announced that The Stern Cardiovascular Foundation (Stern) has implemented the Circadence MVO™ software solution to improve overall operations and enhance patient care.

Stern provides state-of-the-art diagnostics and treatment for all aspects of cardiovascular disease including congestive heart failure, hypertension and cardiac valve disorders. With 17 physicians and 170 employees spread across six locations, Stern offers in-patient and out-patient services in Tennessee and Mississippi.

Stern’s Munford, Tennessee office had a limited and often slow Internet connection causing delays in access to critical electronic medical records (EMRs). Stern evaluated several options, including upgrading its DSL connection, but ultimately turned to Circadence to address its network connectivity problems.

With the Circadence WAN and network optimization solution, staff can more quickly access patient medical records for scheduling, seeing patients and billing. As a result, patient wait time has dramatically decreased from 15 minutes to between seven and eight minutes, making it possible for the practice to accommodate three additional patients per day, shortening the crucial time between the call for an appointment and being seen by the cardiologist.

“Beyond cost and better connection speeds, we’ve seen a significant impact across the practice,” said Buddy Bigelow, director of Information Technology, Stern Cardiovascular. “After two-months, our staff noticed that immediate access to records actually gave staff and doctors more time to provide personal attention to patients and their families facilitating stellar patient care instead of waiting for information to download.”

As a next step, Stern Cardiovascular plans to expand the Circadence solution to its Southaven, Mississippi office and remote outreach clinics. The Munford office will also integrate its new medical imaging technology with Circadence, enabling quicker and secure medical image downloads.

“Healthcare organizations must access, manage and transfer critical patient data with expediency, safety and reliability,” said Michael Moniz, CEO of Circadence. “The Circadence WAN and network optimization solution enables facilities like Stern to extend the capabilities of their existing network infrastructure while improving patient data transport speed.”

Healthcare facilities, imaging centers and practitioners accessing data and imaging across multiple devices and locations with Circadence WAN optimization no longer worry about low-quality and intermittent Internet connections impacting transfer. In addition, Circadence MVO is the only WAN Optimization solution that does not impact security and HIPAA compliance solutions already in place. With 22 patents, Circadence MVO is the only device centric solution for Android, iOS and Windows clients.
