Canterbury credits cloud transformation for COVID resilience
Canterbury District Health Board's adoption of a hybrid cloud infrastructure has enabled it to roll out a number of applications in a hurry during the COVID-19 pandemic, including onboarding a number of new DHBs to the national ICNet infection control expansion program and using technologies such as Microsoft Teams to keep multidisciplinary meetings running remotely.
Canterbury DHB has worked with technology partners Microsoft, CCL and HPE on its cloud infrastructure to support electronic clinical information systems since the devastating earthquakes in 2011. It initially build a private cloud system with CCL before adopting a hybrid approach over the last few years, adding public cloud infrastructure as part of its hybrid cloud strategy.
