The University of Rochester Medical Center (URMC) in the US state of New York has installed CommVault Simpana 9’s singular information management technology to improve patient care.
Simpana software will help the facility centralise the management of electronic medical records and research data across the university. It is expected to help the hospital cut the silo-based backup and recovery solutions, as well as drive increased visibility into data across its multiple sites to support its budget, critical industry compliance and retention requirements.
The software will also accelerate backup and recovery of 180 TBs of data for hundreds of clinical applications, including an Epic-based electronic medical record system GE FlowCast, McKessonHBOC Star and Allscripts.
URMC infrastructure director Rick Haverty said Simpana 9 software allows the hospital to fully protect 42 clinical applications that are essential to patient care, along with hundreds of others that are also important in running its operations.
"Equally important was noting that CommVault offered edge protection functionality," Haverty said. "Since our desktops and laptops hold a lot of valuable research data, the opportunity to extend the same high level of data protection to these dispersed systems was appealing."
Simpana software’s granular recovery options have helped the university improve data restores, according to the URMC.
The centre is one of the main campuses of the university and includes primary medical education, research and patient care facilities.
