Meditech partners with Commvault on EHR systems
The provider of electronic health records has certified Commvault’s data management software for its EHR platform.
MEDITECH has announced that it has certified Commvault's data protection and recovery platform for its electronic heath record (EHR) system with Hewlett Packard Enterprise's (HPE) 3PAR Storage Arrays.
As a result healthcare providers will be able to access a fully integrated data management package. In addition to managing MEDITECH applications, the platform will enable end-users to access MEDITECH's network of technology integrators and hosting service providers, via the cloud.
The added data protection from Commvault's software will aid organisations running MEDITECCH EHR to mitigate costs associated with maintaining legacy applications, while also allowing end-users to move data to the cloud and share across their infrastructure.
Chris Bokis, director of systems development, MEDITECH, said: "Having now certified that our customers can depend on Commvault to backup and recover their MEDITECH environment, we expect that many of them will want to consider how its diverse set of capabilities can help them address some of their most challenging enterprise data management problems."
Additional benefits of the certification for Commvault include the ability to deliver integrated backup and discovery through its IntelliSnap technology. This allows administrations to create data snapshots that can be accessed at any point and quickly back up a variety of MEDITECH's data storage mediums.
Judy Hanover, IDC research director, shared: "While EHR applications have been in use and widely adopted for quite some time now, EHR data management, as well as management of clinical, analytics, patient engagement and CRM data, continues to represent a significant challenge for healthcare providers."
"Customers are looking for more open systems for their complex data management requirements and they are trying to break down data silos and unify data management processes."
