3SO Case Study – NIST On-site Community Cloud

An example of this process is the adoption of Community Cloud models

3SO is a perfect example of a use case for the NIST Community Cloud Deployment Model, because they are a “shared services organization” for a number of Healthcare units.

A shared services organization is an example of the same community effect at the people and process level.

It exists when a number of partnering organizations identify common needs and functions that they each duplicate, such as payroll or procurement, and they maximize their own individual efficiencies by consolidating them into single, ‘shared departments’ that acts as a supplier to them all.

An example of this process is the adoption of Community Cloud models. This allows them to each consolidate their data-centre infrastructure costs and workload, to operate a single platform that runs the same software they all use.

In January 3SO published this RFP for services to build the in-house version, the ‘On-site’ version, of the Community Cloud.

This would utilize VMware vSphere to create a platform for running virtualized Microsoft Sharepoint & Dynamics to implement an iteration of the eHealth Ontario ‘RM&R‘ eReferal process, including:

• Development of a regional repository to securely share clinical documents
• Pilot development of web integration to tie the CDR content into portals
• Pilot integrations to hospital information systems in both LHIN’s
• Pilot integrations to primary care physician EMR’s in both LHIN’s

These capabilities would then be shared by the ‘LHIN’ members of the 3SO network. As such it sets the leading best practice for implementing the eReferal process via Cloud technologies.

Cloud Services Connector

With this being the On-Site version of the Community Cloud, one of the key question is therefore how and why might this be linked to public Cloud facilities.

The key trigger point for linking environment to the external Cloud is highlighted by one of 3SO’s future requirements. Their RFP states they will first deploy a new ActiveDirectory based authentication system, and that later this will need wired into Government federated Identity systems, like ‘ONE-ID‘.

This the type of requirement that VMware has in mind for their new Horizon App Manager product.

By incorporating the Horizon App Manager into Cloud services, hosting providers can offer the connection service to link this local installation to other partners within the eHealth Ontario network.

The Jevons Paradox suggests that when technological advances increase efficiency of a resource, it results in an overall increase in consumption. Writing on the increased use of coal as a result of technological improvements, 19th-century economist William Stanley Jevons found that these improvements led to the development of new ways to utilize coal. In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Mark Thiele, Chief Strategy Officer for Apcera, compared the Jevons Paradox to modern-day enterprise IT, examin...
