Major updates to the Connected Health Platform guidance and tools

Some of you may have noticed already that we have made a major updates to the Microsoft Connected Health Platform (CHP) area on the Health ICT Resource Center.  The update affected the main CHP Silverlight based navigation UI and the guidance, tools and solution accelerator navigation page.  The main CHP (Silverlight) page allows you to look at challenges, concerns, or issues from the perspective of a CEO, a CIO (or ICT Director) and a Care Professional.  The UI will help you navigate to specific offerings (architecture, design and deployment guidance, tools or solution accelerators) that ICT departments in health organizations or partners can use today to build an Optimized Health ICT Infrastructure for the organization they serve.


These CHP offerings are built on top of a solid foundation of the Microsoft Infrastructure Optimization models and tools and further specialized for the health domain.  They have also been used and validated in many solutions and deployments by our customers and partners worldwide.


The updates include various upgrades to existing guidance documents and tools and the following new guidance documents:

  • Microsoft Office Communications Server Design Guide
  • System Center Configuration Manager 2007 (SCCM) – To replace the guidance we had on Systems Management Server 2003
    • Deployment Guide
    • Software Distribution guidance
    • Software Update Management guidance
    • Operating System Deployment Guide
  • System Center Operations Manager 2007 R2 Guide

The following table provides detailed view of the changes included in this update:
