Children’s Hospital Central California is a not-for-profit, state-of-the-art children’s hospital located on a 50-acre campus in Madera, CA. Its medical staff of 550 physicians treats more inpatient cases than any pediatric hospital in California making it the busiest children’s hospital in the state. With 356 licensed beds, Children’s Hospital Central California is one of the 10 largest hospitals of its type in the nation.

BridgeHead enables efficient protection for MEDITECH with integrated capabilities to ensure coherent data capture across MEDITECH’s complex, multi-server environment. In addition, the IT administrators at Children’s were impressed with BridgeHead’s integrated capabilities for NetApp, which orchestrate data capture using the MEDITECH Backup Facility (MBF) API and NetApp’s snapshot technologies.

“BridgeHead is the backup traffic cop and the glue that holds our Children’s Hospital’s data management platform all together,” said Brian Welch, Senior Network Engineer, Children’s Hospital Central California. “Since our DR copy is stored to disk, Children’s has positioned itself for a rapid recovery of MEDITECH data obtained with lowered administrative burden and disk storage cost.”

“We are pleased to work with BridgeHead Software to deliver this solution to Children’s Hospital Central California,” said Charles Mallio, Strategic Alliances Manager for Healthcare, NetApp. “BridgeHead’s integration with the MEDITECH API and our operating system Data ONTAP makes it an ideal data management solution for MEDITECH customers running on NetApp. By using the BridgeHead solution, Children’s Hospital Central California is able to take full advantage of NetApp’s data and storage management features while ensuring application-consistent recovery points for their MEDITECH data.”
