Electronic health records provider Meditech has accredited NetApp’s data storage products for health organizations to use in electronic health records systems as they manage electronic patient information.
NetApp, a partner of Children’s Hospital of Central California and Albemarle Hospital of North Carolina, aims to help healthcare institutions store and gain access to patient data through its its FAS storage architecture, NetApp said Monday.
Healthcare organizations aim to protect their backup and disaster recovery systems from disruptions as they rely on EHRs, NetApp said.
“Healthcare providers today are looking for increased agility in terms of how they store, process, and manage the explosion of electronic patient data,” said Dave Nesvisky, NetApp senior director of healthcare.
NetApp has teamed up with BridgeHead Software, a Meditech partner, to combine their data management and storage products as they aim to help clients protect electronic patient data.
“They need the ability to access this data anytime and anywhere, and it must be well protected,” Nesviski added.
