Children’s Hospital Central California, a not-for-profit children’s hospital located in Madera, California, has deployed BridgeHead Software’s health data management (HDM) platform for swift recovery of MEDITECH data.

BridgeHead’s HDM integrates with Children’s NetApp storage environment, backup and archive with single data repository to ensure optimised protection and recovery for all hospital data.

It also protects MEDITECH with integrated capabilities to ensure coherent data capture across MEDITECH’s complex, multi-server environment.

According to the company, the hospital’s IT staff were impressed with BridgeHead’s integrated capabilities for NetApp, which orchestrate data capture using the MEDITECH Backup Facility (MBF) API and NetApp’s snapshot technologies.

Children’s Hospital Central California senior network engineer Brian Welch described BridgeHead as the backup traffic cop and the glue that holds the hospital’s data management platform together.

"Since our DR copy is stored to disk, Children’s has positioned itself for a rapid recovery of MEDITECH data obtained with lowered administrative burden and disk storage cost," Welch added.
