It goes without saying that reliable data is vital to the delivery of quality healthcare. Access to critical patient data -- test results, drug allergies, treatment history, and prescriptions -- allows medical professionals to administer care and make potentially life-saving decisions. When seconds count, hospital staff needs to be able to count on their data.
So what happens when access to data is interrupted? With today’s Electronic Medical Records (EMRs) stored in a healthcare information system (HCIS) database, such as MEDITECH, disaster recovery planning is a necessity. In fact, with the latest version of MEDITECH, monthly scheduled maintenance downtime can last for several hours.
Data Continuity provides reliable data access at all times to ensure continuous patient care during planned or unplanned downtime, scheduled maintenance, data migration or a network outage.
“We saw an immediate positive impact where a manual process that averaged 21 hours was reduced to about an hour, with full auditing and reporting automatically produced in the end.”
