Building a Trusted Network with Portwell's CAR-3000 1U Rackmount Communication Appliance for Network Security

Version 2



    St. Joseph Health System is an integrated local healthcare system with facilities in the
    seven-county primary service area of the Brazos Valley, Texas. The majority of
    its health services are delivered at St. Joseph's main campus, the regional
    health center based out of Bryan, TX. This facility provides a range of
    inpatient, outpatient and surgical specialties and shares vital patient
    information with associated physicians' and doctors' offices, as well as
    critical access hospitals located in Brazos Valley. As St. Joseph Health System
    Network Specialist, Alan Williams is responsible for the secure, timely and
    accurate sharing of this vital patient information between his headquarters in
    Bryan and the county locations.


    Williams' networking group needed to run voice, data and some video down
    the communications tunnels set up between Bryan and its "remote sites" and
    ensure the patient information exchanged with these clients was secured and encrypted
    to comply with HIPAA guidelines and policies for privacy of patient information.
