Amsterdam, 1 October 2019 – The Dutch National Healthcare Institute has decided to transfer its IT environment and virtual desktops to dedicated data centres of Solvinity. The transfer ensures the National Healthcare Institute of maximum control over IT processes in which a lot of sensitive data is handled, and guarantees the continuity of IT services.
The National Healthcare Institute is an independent administrative body that represents the interests of everyone who is entitled to healthcare in accordance with the Dutch Health Insurance Act (Zvw) and Long-Term Care Act (Wlz). With its statutory duties, the National Healthcare Institute makes an important contribution to maintaining the quality, accessibility and affordability of Dutch healthcare.
Considering the institute's growing responsibilities and the lightning-fast IT developments, the National Healthcare Institute looked for a reliable partner to outsource management of their IT environment and virtual workplaces. The National Healthcare Institute is not a completely new customer for Solvinity: web hosting had already been outcourced to Solvinity. After a careful selection procedure, in which various reputable providers were compared, the National Healthcare Institute decided to transfer these additional services to Solvinity.
Guido Scheenhart, project manager at the National Healthcare Institute: "For an organisation like the National Healthcare Institute, which handles a lot of highly sensitive personal data, reliability and security of IT-services is crucial. The solution Solvinity offered gives us maximum control and certainty. We are confident that with this, we have chosen the best possible solution for our customers, partners and employees.”
Hans van den Broek, CEO of Solvinity: “We are proud that the National Healthcare Institute, a government organisation with high social relevance, chose Solvinity based on the quality of our solutions. Our Managed Services are 'secure by design' and are highly valued by our customers for their high basic level of safety and reliability.”
Solvinity offers the National Healthcare Institute, among other things, dedicated storage in a dual data centre solution. Which means that the National Healthcare Institute not only fully complies with all legal requirements, but is also better able to withstand unforeseen circumstances and emergencies. The company builds a secure network infrastructure for the National Healthcare Institute in which more than hundred virtual machines will be provisioned. By default Solvinity supplies various management & control services including vulnerability-tests, contingency tests, logging, hardening and a clear (security) patch process . After completion of the transition, the applications will be managed by a dedicated National Healthcare Institute customer-team.
