"We’ve grown quite a bit fond of MQ and use it in a number of ways. At the end of day it’s people feeling better and getting through the day better." - Anders Jacobson, supervisor, UNIX System Administration, Visiting Nurse Service of New York

The Visiting Nurse Service of New York (VNSNY) is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to home and community-based healthcare. It was established in 1893 by Lillian D. Wald, the founder of public health nursing in the United States. The organization has approximately 18,000 employees, including nurses, rehabilitation therapists, home health aides, social workers and other clinical professionals serving New York City, Nassau County and parts of Westchester County.
VNSNY needed a way to securely move information between systems so that its employees could access systems from remote locations.
It implemented IBM® WebSphere® MQ software, which moves data across the network, and Avada Infrared360 software.
The solution helps staff access the organization's systems from virtually any location.
An enterprise messaging and monitoring system based on IBM WebSphere software positions staff to better serve patients.
