SHERIDAN, Wyo. and MELVILLE, N.Y., April 9, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- IDG's
Computerworld Honors Program today announces Ptolemy Data Systems as a 2013
Laureate. The annual award program honors visionary applications of
information technology promoting positive social, economic and educational
"Technology continues to play a pivotal role in transforming how business and
society functions. For the past 25 years the Computerworld Honors Program has
had the privilege of celebrating innovative IT achievements," said John Amato,
vice president & publisher, Computerworld. "Computerworld is honored to
recognize the outstanding accomplishments of the 2013 class of Laureates and
to share their work. These projects demonstrate how IT can advance
organizations' ability to compete, innovate, communicate and prosper."
"Being named a Computerworld Honors Laureate recognizes everyone at Ptolemy
Data Systems for our successful implementation of a statewide telemedicine
network that delivers high-quality medical and psychiatric care to underserved
populations in Wyoming," said Ryan Mulholland, president and CEO of Ptolemy
Data Systems. "I hope that Ptolemy's participation in the Computerworld Honors
Program will bring awareness to how advanced networking and communications
technology can solve the problem of equal access to medical care and enhance
the quality of life for residents of remote communities."
As a provider of comprehensive managed IT services, Ptolemy Data Systems
delivers a broad range of technology solutions, including IT consulting,
hosted IT services, business continuity, data storage and telehealth services.
Ptolemy deployed FalconStor Software's suite of storage virtualization and
data protection solutions at the core of its data center to facilitate the
virtual storage, business continuity, disaster recovery and hosted application
services for its customers.
Due to Ptolemy's expertise in data center management, networking and
telecommunications, the Wyoming Telepsychiatry Project engaged the firm to
create a statewide telemedicine network to bring much-needed medical and
psychiatric care to isolated communities. Recently, the Wyoming Department of
Health awarded Ptolemy a contract to expand its support of telehealth services
for all state-funded healthcare facilities and public health offices.
Rural states such as Montana and Wyoming suffer from a lack of adequate access
to medical and mental healthcare providers. Telehealth services, which
Ptolemy's data center and networking infrastructure enables, offer
critical-care access to rural communities and cost-saving opportunities for
providers and payers alike. Telehealth networks permit communication between
patients and medical staff as well as the secure transmission of medical,
imaging and health informatics data from one site to another.
The Computerworld Honors Program awards will be presented at the Gala Evening
and Awards Ceremony on June 3, 2013 at the Andrew W. Mellon Auditorium in
