As the largest medical network in southwest Missouri with 5,000 employees, including more than 350 physicians on staff, Freeman Health System provides healthcare services representing more than 60 specialties. The Freeman Health System network is anchored by the flagship, 339-bed teaching hospital, Freeman Hospital West, affiliated with Kansas City University of Medicine and Biosciences. Freeman Health’s IT enterprise is complex, extensive, and distributed across many locations. The organization makes extensive use of IP-connected devices—the Internet of Things (IoT) and Internet of Medical Things (IoMT)—to run its facilities and to care for patients.
Freeman Health selected the Ordr Systems Control Engine (SCE) to transform its IoT security and business operations. The Ordr SCE enables the Security Team and CIO within Freeman Health to overcome challenges to ensure that devices are secure.
