"After working with Commvault to fully integrate their data management solution into MEDITECH EHR, we tested the solution and it passed all our tests with flying colors," said Chris Bokis, Director of Systems Development, MEDITECH. "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, including centralization of data management activities and data protection for cloud-based MEDITECH deployments."
Through its certification with MEDITECH EHR, Commvault is able to provide customers integrated backup and disaster recovery using Commvault's IntelliSnap technology to create consistent data snapshots, which administrators can quickly access for data recovery and to back up MEDITECH's MAGIC, Client/Server 5.x, and 6.x platforms data to disk, tape, or cloud storage. As a result, this data protection model can be used to protect data in MEDITECH EHR and MEDITECH's Scanning and Archiving (SCA) solution.
Furthermore, Commvault's Software and the Commvault Data Platform are hardware-agnostic, enabling customers to back up data on MEDITECH certified storage arrays, as well as other data storage solutions utilized by healthcare providers for their clinical and business applications along with all other unstructured data. HPE 3PAR is the first storage array to receive certification while various other arrays are currently going through validation and are on schedule to receive certification in the near future.
"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 customer relationship management (CRM) data, continues to represent a significant challenge for healthcare providers, particularly as they attempt to move applications and data off premise and to the cloud," said IDC Research Director Judy Hanover. "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. This includes archiving and backup, and the ability to protect and recover data in on-premise or cloud-based implementations of healthcare applications like MEDITECH, while allowing providers to lower their Total Cost of Ownership (TCO), streamline operations and even improve clinical decision making."
An Emerging Leader in Healthcare Data Management
The MEDITECH certification comes on the heels of other initiatives that have strengthened Commvault's position as a leader in the growing healthcare data management market. In December, Commvault entered a strategic partnership with Laitek Inc., a pioneer in rapid data migration and storage services, for decommissioning legacy picture archiving and communication systems (PACS). In March, in partnership with Laitek, the company launched Commvault Clinical Archive to modernize the way healthcare organizations manage, migrate and share clinical data. Today, some of the most well-respected healthcare providers and hospitals in the world are using Commvault Software to manage and protect business and clinical data, including Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, Royal Cornwall Hospitals, vRad, University of Rochester Medical Center, and Salem Health.
"Commvault has brought modern data management to both sides the healthcare industry – business and clinical -- and MEDITECH's certification on HP 3PAR and many storage arrays to follow is another indication of our success," said N. Robert Hammer, Chairman, President and CEO, Commvault. "As hospitals and healthcare providers seek new ways to improve patient care while reducing IT spend, they are increasingly discovering that Commvault's unified approach to data management enables them to cost-effectively handle growing volumes of data, meet compliance requirements and improve their ability to deliver high quality care to their patients."
