Tech Challenges – “Until recently, we were always playing catch up and scrambling just to ‘make it work’ which was giving us much more tasks than needed. In the past few years, we've been able to successfully weed out the issues and develop plans for success. Unfortunately, one of the obstacles is our computer infrastructure. We easily lose 25% of our productivity potential due to waiting for computers to boot, log in, open programs and more. We had several old computers even a few with the originally Vista label/license stickers.”

Security winner – Lane Regional Medical Center
About – Lane Regional Medical Center values community and takes pride in their role they play as caregivers. They have served as the primary healthcare resource for more than 200,000 of their neighbors located throughout Zachary and the surrounding region of Baker, Central, Clinton, Jackson, St. Francisville, New Roads and North Baton Rouge.
Tech Challenges – “LRMC, like every other healthcare organization, has suffered great financial hardship due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The mandated suspension of all in-person clinic visits and non-urgent surgical procedures has drastically reduced revenues, while the treatment of COVID-19 patients has increased expenses. By receiving this makeover prize, LRMC would make a huge step forward in the removal of Windows® 7 and its vulnerabilities. This would also free up hospital funds to spend on other IT infrastructure in dire need of upgrade or replacement. The security of patient data would be improved, and the risk of healthcare providers not being able to leverage the EHR and other technology for treating patients would be lowered.”

TCO winner – Wine Warehouse

Tech Challenges – “This is an amazing contest. If we won this contest, it would allow us to upgrade many of our PCs and laptops, allowing us to reallocate more of our IT budget to server upgrades. During COVID-19 we had many remote users turn in their laptops, and only work off their iPad® devices in order to have an emergency plan for critical office workers to potentially work from home. Being able to return new laptops to the remote users would be a big moral boost for the remote workers who are out servicing restaurants and retail stores on a daily basis. Alternatively, being able to supply laptops and docking stations to the critical office workers would also allow us to have a more stable organization if and when emergencies arise.”
