Overview

Banner Health is one of the largest non-profit healthcare systems in the United States and provides a wide variety of services with clinical settings in six states. Headquartered in Phoenix Arizona, Banner Health is dedicated to making healthcare easier and life better. The demand for a patient-focused experience is driving the healthcare industry to transform their technology ecosystems. This transformation, however, has not been easy and faces broad, systemic challenges. Regulations, technology and culture all play a role in complexity, adding to the IT challenge mix. Facing these challenges, Banner Health partnered with MST Solutions, to implement new processes, upskill teams, and employ techniques to give Banner Health a jumpstart on a healthy and cross-organization minded architectural.

To meet these demands, new levels of integration (and thus collaboration across teams and organizations) are required.
