A new, stand-alone ambulatory surgery center was being constructed by a large group of physicians. There were multiple software requirements, including arthroscopic image capture and storage, scheduling and workflow, case documentation, as well as back-office applications such as email, accounting and billing. QSE was hired as the "I.T. General Contractor," overseeing all of the non-medical IT system infrastructure, including cabling, server and redundant data storage, desktops and workstations, secure WiFi and broadband internet connectivity. The revenue dependency on the technology systems was upwards of $20,000 per day of delay, so the system had to be robust, well-designed and installed and configured on time.
Almost immediately QSE determined that no adequate space had been set aside within the facility for all of the technology systems, and we worked with the architects, developer and general contractor to help design and construct a secure space with sufficient power, cooling and security to house all the IT and telecom system hardware. All the IT systems came up working in 100% fashion, and the city's electrical inspectors commented that they had never seen such a big project be completed with no issues.
