New partnership establishes a comprehensive content and storage management solution specifically for healthcare.
Clark, NJ, USA, Oct. 12, 2010 –/NewsWire/– DB Technology, premier provider of document management and workflow automation solutions, and BridgeHead Software, the Healthcare Storage Virtualization Company, today announced a strategic partnership to provide North American healthcare organizations with a full offering for the management of clinical and administrative data.
From document capture, process, access and distribution through document management, storage and protection, the combined solution empowers healthcare IT to build a comprehensive data repository that underpins the Electronic Health Record (EHR) and takes control of the entire content lifecycle.
â€œIn the wake of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (and the HITECH provision therein), healthcare organizations throughout the country are rushing to implement and/or demonstrate meaningful use as it applies to the Electronic Health Record (EHR),â€ said Charles Wilson, CEO of DB Technology. â€œAs more EHR systems come online, hospitals are shifting from paper-based to paperless operations.â€
â€œFor more than a decade, BridgeHead has been helping healthcare organizations worldwide manage and protect their critical data,â€ said Tony Cotterill, CEO of BridgeHead Software. â€œBut the amount of that data has been increasing exponentially as paper charts are being replaced by electronic charts, moving the patientâ€™s Legal Medical Record online.â€
Wilson concurs. â€œDocumentation collected at registration, during treatment, and at discharge is being scanned and archived as part of the patientâ€™s complete Electronic Health Record. And more aggressive organizations are engaged in retroactive scanning, digitizing years of historical medical records.â€ The result is terabytes of digital documents that must be retained securely and economically for many years to meet regulatory and compliance mandates.
Hospitals can manage the complete healthcare data lifecycle with solutions from DB Technology and BridgeHead. RASi, the document imaging component in DB Technologyâ€™s RAS platform, scans and manages electronic and hard copy patient accounting and clinical reports and documents from disparate systems and stores that information in an electronic patient folder (EPF) for easy retrieval and distribution. BH FileStore EHR from BridgeHead secures those EPFs on the most appropriate storage device, employing its advanced policy engine to manage the data across storage tiers and locations. It maximizes efficient use of expensive primary storage by ensuring only the most relevant data is stored there.
â€œBridgeHead Software is the data and storage management solution at over 1000 healthcare organizations worldwide,â€ notes Wilson. â€œWhen looking for a partner we could trust to securely manage and protect our customersâ€™ critical data, BridgeHead rose to the top.â€
â€œWe are pleased to be able to offer this joint solution with DB technology,â€ continues Cotterill. â€œOver their many years in business, DB Technologyâ€™s solutions seem well tuned to the needs of the healthcare market which is our chosen vertical.â€
