Wake Forest School of Medicine is comprised of a Level 1 trauma center which receives more than 100,000 emergency visits a year and an academic program with 40 residents and 25 faculty members. Wake Forest was using antiquated processes to make medical protocols and administrative information available to physicians which resulted in the loss of critical information. Additionally, these systems were not integrated with the physician’s mobile devices, resulting in vital exam time being lost as doctors were forced to leave the exam room to find a room with computer access to search for relevant information. Resident physician Illtifat Husain, who had used Box cloud-based storage as a medical student, suggested the cloud-based storage provider to James O’Neill, M.D., assistant professor, Wake Forest Baptist department of emergency medicine, as a possible solution. After testing by a select group of residents and faculty, Wake Forest chose Box for all its cloud-based storage needs. This Q&A with O’Neill and Box health advisor Missy Krasner looks into the reasons why Box was selected and the results Wake Forest experienced.
