Upper Allegheny Health System (UAHS), which operates Bradford Regional Medical Center in Pennsylvania and Olean General Hospital in New York, US, has selected BridgeHead software to protect its enterprise data.
The health system has implemented BridgeHead Healthcare Data Management (HDM) platform with Meditech Integrated Serverless Backup (ISB) and Integrated Disaster Recovery (IDR) backup for its EMR system.
UAHS system administrator Joseph Leo said the organisation can now work with one data management platform for all hospital applications and data, supported by one company.
"That’s a substantial benefit and time-saver. BridgeHead has provided excellent support and has always given us help when we needed it," Leo added.
UAHS opted to consolidate on the Meditech EMR for both its hospitals with BridgeHead Meditech ISB and IDR for backup.
Meditech has certified ISB/IDR protocol as critical for ensuring the recovery of accurate patient data, by orchestrating the protection of that data from multiple Meditech File Servers.
UAHS has also implemented BridgeHead HDM to protect and recover enterprise data, including hospital financial and back-office information.
The benefits that the health system observed while working with the BridgeHead HDM platform include cost savings from unified backup systems, reduced administrative burden, and assured coherent data at time of recovery.
BridgeHead Software North America senior vice president Mike Ball said, "BridgeHead Software and MEDITECH have a long tradition of working closely and leveraging our unique partnership, to help organisations like Upper Allegheny Health System adopt assured, coherent, streamlined data protection for their EMR and HIS."
