WOBURN, MA and ASHTEAD, UK: BridgeHead Software has announced its Data Protection Suite for InterSystems Caché® databases, a backup and recovery solution that fully integrates with Caché to provide rapid and reliable management of hospital data. InterSystems Caché ® is an advanced object database at the heart of many hospital applications, including Electronic Medical Records (EMR) applications from Allscripts, Epic Systems, GE Healthcare, McKesson, Siemens, as well as InterSystems themselves. The US Dept of Veterans Affairs has also used Caché as the basis for their award-winning hospital system, called Veterans Health Information Systems and Technology Architecture (VistA).

 

BridgeHead identified a gap in the market where there was no standard product available to manage the backup and recovery of the Caché database, critical for the protection of many hospital applications. BridgeHead’s new Data Protection Suite for Caché now offers the only “out of the box” solution in the market with this capability – making the safeguarding of data within Caché environments significantly easier.

Of particular interest in the United Kingdom, this solution introduction is expected to help position BridgeHead to support the much talked about VA VistA solution currently under review by NHS England. BridgeHead describes the impact of its new product for UK users in its blog, “A Promising Backup Solution for NHS VistA”.

BridgeHead Data Protection Suite for Caché provides two backup agents, supporting two alternative backup modes, designed to provide best-fit approaches for both small and large hospital environments depending on the storage in place at the facility. The solution also offers flexible options for working with Caché’s own protection capabilities, operating in concert at local and remote sites to extend protection to disaster recovery locations. Selecting the BridgeHead solution enables hospitals to meet the protection guidelines specified by vendors of hospital applications which embed Caché, such as the guidelines from Epic.

Joseph Martins, Managing Director, Data Mobility Group said: “BridgeHead Data Protection Suite for Caché delivers an integrated standard-product solution which, to our knowledge, is the only standard product available that is designed for hospital EMR applications. BridgeHead’s break-through approach, which leverages backup and SAN technologies built into their Data Protection Suite for Caché, is purpose-built to help hospitals meet their unique requirements and constraints. Data Mobility Group applauds BridgeHead’s continued laser focus on providing data management solutions that integrate backup and archive practices specifically designed to protect hospital environments.”

Jim Beagle, CEO BridgeHead Software: “Recently, there has been a developing interest in the Caché database from the UK healthcare sector. This is primarily down to the recent selection of Epic Systems and InterSystems as providers of PAS under the London Framework agreement, both of which offer healthcare applications that are underpinned by Caché. Additionally, there are a wide range of applications deployed across the NHS that utilise the Caché database, InterSystems Trakcare for one. Furthermore, NHS England is currently investigating the viability of implementing ‘NHS VistA’ – a version of the US Veterans Health Association’s open source electronic medical record system, VA VistA – that also uses the Caché database.”
