HUMBER RIVER HOSPITAL EXTENDS DATA PROTECTION WITH BRIDGEHEAD TO MEDITECH SCA

BridgeHead Healthcare Data Management (HDM) solution offers hospitals working with MEDITECH the ability to bring scanning and archiving images under recovery protection for the first time

WOBURN, Mass.BridgeHead Software today announced that Toronto’s Humber River Hospital, one of Canada’s largest regional acute care hospitals and a long-time customer of BridgeHead, has deployed BridgeHead’s Healthcare Data Management (HDM) solution for MEDITECH Scanning and Archiving (SCA). By adding SCA to its existing HCIS and EMR backup, BridgeHead HDM has enabled Humber River to create a single, centrally managed and fully protected archive for all its MEDITECH application data.

“We have a variety of storage equipment all working together in our environment with the capability for different brands of storage to provide recovery of MEDITECH data,” notes senior technical analyst at Humber River, Othman Khan. “BridgeHead’s single HDM platform for backup, archive and disaster recovery makes this possible and has reduced our costs while providing flexible recovery. Integrated archive is particularly critical, as it provides us with a true healthcare data archive with quick backup and comprehensive recovery.”

At Humber River, MEDITECH SCA images are protected along with MEDITECH 6.0 data, using the integrated backup and archive capabilities provided by BridgeHead HDM. In addition, corporate enterprise servers are also protected, which eliminates the need for other backup software, along with the associated maintenance contracts and training. In this project, Humber River has standardized protection using the following BridgeHead products:

  • BridgeHead Integrated Serverless Backup (ISB)
  • BridgeHead Integrated Disaster Recovery (IDR)
  • BridgeHead HDM Solution for MEDITECH SCA
