Successful technology solutions mean more than just a healthy bottom line – they mean protecting essential medical information, and making sure the organization and its staff are free to concentrate on saving lives.

When Saint Michael”s Medical Center – a 357-bed tertiary care, teaching, and research center in New Jersey – decided to switch PC-to-host and Web-to-host terminal emulators, they chose HostExplorer, offered through enterprise content management (ECM) provider Open Text.
