Orchard Software has multiple hosting options available for its cloud services and is proud to
work with Amazon Web Services (AWS) as one of them. AWS is the world’s most
comprehensive and broadly adopted cloud platform, architected to be the most flexible and
secure cloud computing environment available. Data centers are globally located and
backed by extensive cloud security tools. AWS supports a multitude of security standards
and compliance certifications, as well as data encryption capabilities that can support
Orchard’s Harvest customers.
Orchard Software’s longtime client, Northwest Alabama Cancer Center (NWACC), has
transitioned to Orchard Cloud Services using AWS. Their cloud-hosted laboratory
information system will reduce the burden on laboratory staff for IT-related tasks, provide
enhanced security and reliability, and reduce fixed costs for their organization.
At NWACC, having their system’s security, disaster recovery, and maintenance handled by
Orchard Cloud Services frees the laboratory staff to focus on their overarching goal of
quality and compassionate patient care. Kristy McCabe, Laboratory Manager at NWACC,
says, “We have a long-standing, trusted relationship with Orchard Software. I consider
selecting Orchard Harvest one of the best decisions I have ever made for our practice. In my
experience, when working with Orchard, we know we are in good hands. Less IT headaches
are a welcome advantage of moving our LIS to Orchard Cloud Services.”
“Pairing 25-plus years of laboratory IT expertise with modern cloud technology and an
understanding of the importance of protecting patient data, Orchard Cloud Services provide
a flexible, cloud-based laboratory information system deployment that helps address the
specific challenges that laboratory IT faces,” says Billie Whitehurst, Orchard’s CEO.
