MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., March 6, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Pure Storage (NYSE: PSTG), the market-leading independent all-flash data platform vendor, today announced the company achieved certification of its data platform for use with MEDITECH, a leading provider of electronic health records (EHR). Pure Storage is also now jointly certified by MEDITECH with Commvault's EHR Data Protection solution. Pure and Commvault's technology ensures healthcare organizations always have quick access to sensitive clinical data. These certifications were achieved after extensive testing of the Pure Storage platform by MEDITECH's integration partner CloudWave. Pure Storage will be at HIMSS18 in Las Vegas from March 6-8, 2018 in booth #8119 demoing its platform and highlighting its integration and support for the EHR provider ecosystem.
Providing an Optimal Storage Solution for EHR Applications
"We collaborated with Pure Storage to test its data platform solution with MEDITECH EHR and the solution both met our guidelines and exceeded our expectations," said Chris Bokis, Director of Systems Development, MEDITECH. "This certification delivers our customers further peace of mind that they can depend on Pure Storage to run and support their MEDITECH environments, which are critical for the patient experience when seconds matter and can influence health outcomes."
In today's fast-paced healthcare environment, organizations need agile, scalable solutions that meet clinical needs. MEDITECH's certification of Pure Storage provides healthcare providers with a new option for high performance, high availability access to their EHR, as well as related administrative systems, analytics, virtualization and other workloads. With MEDITECH on Pure, organizations can deliver a secure clinical desktop enabling providers to make decisions in real time.
Healthcare Providers Rely on Modern Data Platforms to Support Patient Data
MEDITECH customer Salinas Valley Memorial Health System (SVMHS), located in central California, was an early adopter of MEDITECH on Pure. SVMHS had an urgent need for a new storage platform to support its MEDITECH environment.
"We learned that certification of MEDITECH on Pure Storage was imminent, and we felt Pure was a vendor we should consider," said Audrey Parks, CIO of Salinas Valley Memorial Health System. SVMHS implemented Pure in late 2016. "The performance is rock-solid, and my technical teams have nothing but good things to say about the technology. We know that faster storage will make a big difference to our IT staff and clinicians," said Parks.
SVMHS also took advantage of the joint certification with Commvault's EHR Data Protection solution to update its backup and disaster recovery capabilities. "We selected Commvault and Pure Storage as the best solution, because it was a good fit not just for MEDITECH, but also for our enterprise applications," said Parks. "The close integration between Commvault and Pure Storage is a real benefit."
"The certification of Pure Storage with Commvault's backup and disaster recovery solution for MEDITECH represents a leap forward in performance for customers," said Ananth Balasubramanian, General Manager of Commvault's Healthcare Solutions Group, Commvault. "Commvault and Pure's joint health system customers will have state-of-the art data management solutions that ensure they are well prepared for the future and the ever growing amount of patient data."
Moreover, Pure Storage has delivered healthcare organizations continuous innovation with the 2017 introduction of the first 100 percent NVMe all-flash enterprise flash array in the industry. Additionally, the company also enables organizations to achieve the highest levels of business continuity with ActiveCluster while enjoying proven 99.9999% availability and completely non-disruptive operations. This technology innovation combined with Pure's differentiated Evergreen Storage subscription delivers customers the advantage they need to enhance their infrastructures and support the healthcare data revolution.
"Pure Storage provides customers the technology solutions required to support mission-critical EHR environments that demand performance and availability; clinical applications can't afford any downtime," said Mike Celetti, Global Healthcare Solutions Lead, Pure Storage. "The MEDITECH certification provides our customers an added level of confidence that we have taken the right steps to ensure their critical infrastructure will always be up and running."
