SIOS DataKeeper® Cluster Edition and Deployment Services Protect Carroll Hospital Center’s Electronic Medical Records System
Case Study: Carroll Hospital — SIOS DataKeeper Cluster Edition
Carroll Hospital Center set out to ensure Continuous Availability and Disaster Protection for their Critical Applications and Data. The organisation wanted to configure a comprehensive disaster recovery solution. They were looking for something to meet their rapid failover and data replication needs.
Carroll Hospital Center relies heavily on the availability of its electronic medical records (EMR) system. It is managed by an application from McKesson called Horizon Patient Folder. The Center had only one primary data processing system. Carroll Hospital Center needed a reliable, comprehensive disaster recovery solution to ensure the availability of its EMR system in the event of a site-wide disaster. And at the same time, ensure Continuous Availability and Disaster Protection.
However, most of the available options were not robust enough to meet their data replication requirements. The solutions could not integrate with its back- end applications. The healthcare provider’s IT partner recommended SIOS DataKeeper Cluster Edition. The Hospital Center wanted a comprehensive disaster recovery solution that delivered both high availability and data replication.
Continuous Availability and Disaster Protection With SIOS
“SIOS is the only provider that meets this need. They could deliver a superior disaster recovery technology and unsurpassed business continuity expertise,” said Christine Mirosavich, CAS Severn account executive for Carroll Hospital Center.
Carroll Hospital Center now has a comprehensive DR solution that that keeps mission-critical applications such as its EMR always available. Unlike the hospital’s previous standalone EMR system, the IT team no longer waste hours performing a manual failover and reconfigure the clients. Instead, their failover time is automatic. It takes less than a minute in the event of system failure or a disaster. SIOS DataKeeper provides continuous real-time, host-based, block level replication delivering continuous access to patient records.
SIOS DataKeeper Cluster Edition met Carroll Hospital Center’s need to failover from one site to another without requiring a large investment in overhead and resources. This ensures that critical patient electronic medical records are always accessible and maintained in the event of a disaster. With continuous Availability and Disaster Protection, the hospital can continue providing the highest quality of care for its patients.
