Wasatch Pediatrics Selects Revinetix Data Storage Solutions to Support Its Transition to Electronic Medical Records

SALT LAKE CITY, UT--(Marketwire - January 2, 2008) - As electronic health records (EMRs) continue to grow in acceptance, secure and reliable archiving and storage are gaining in importance for healthcare organizations. To support its transition to EMRs and enhance its archiving system, Wasatch Pediatrics recently selected Revinetix' Disk2Disk2Disk™ solution to replace its legacy tape system. The contract was facilitated by Valcom, a Revinetix Value-Added Reseller (VAR) with locations in Boise, Idaho and Salt Lake City, Utah.

Prior to deploying a Revinetix system, Wasatch Pediatrics used a tape system running daily backups of its patient information, Exchange server, voicemail, business applications and financial data which was then taken offsite for storage.

"Having had the experience of using tape backup and understanding the limitations of tape, being that tape is what it is, we researched alternatives and determined that a disk backup solution provided the accessibility, reliability and security we needed," said Brock Morris, director of information technology at Wasatch Pediatrics.

After reviewing bids from several data storage providers, it was the flexibility and lower cost of ownership offered through the product's site license model that contributed to the decision to select Revinetix. Pediatric physician salaries, by comparison to other physicians, fall at the lower end of the salary scale so an affordable solution was enticing to a physician-owned practice.

"An additional determining factor that stood out about Revinetix was the reliability of its technology," added Morris. "Bottom line, tapes stretch and data can be lost, disks are proven to be dependable, data is very easy to access and, when necessary, easy to restore."

Revinetix' support for Microsoft Exchange was also a key determinant. During the practice's transition from a tape-based system to disk, a member of the administration staff accidentally deleted the entire contents of their email. With the tape system, recoveries of this type took on average three days. With the disk system and its software that supports Microsoft® Exchange Server 2007, the recovery of emails took only five minutes.

A contributor to the quick recovery was Revinetix' easy-to-use product interface that enables users to browse and restore any file quickly and easily.

Today, the Revinetix Disk2Disk2Disk system is scheduled to perform daily automatic backups. The switch to EMRs is still in process, but plans are for the disk archive to be used to store all patient data and payment history.

"We are pleased to have earned the confidence of Wasatch Pediatrics; that our data storage solutions and services can support them as they work toward enhancing the sophistication of all of their business systems," said Thomas Hogan, CEO, Revinetix.
