Why Is HealthStore Important?
Healthcare policy is driving the requirement for a unified patient record. Providing clinicians with a holistic view of the patient at the point of care enables better decision making and clinical outcomes as well as improving the overall patient experience. BridgeHead’s HealthStore is an enabling technology to help hospitals achieve this goal.
In summary, with BridgeHead’s HealthStore, hospitals can:
Enhance The EPR
Allowing easier access to a wide range of content from one location using a single search interface. This is especially useful where hospitals are trying to improve their EPR applications or implement portals that provide access to a more complete patient record.
Improve Data Quality
By establishing a ‘clean’ data environment that enforces standards, the quality of data is taken to the next level End Migration Nightmares As applications are upgraded or ‘swapped-out’, the physical data remains in the repository. The meta-data in the archive ensures that the objects can be made available to the new application or portal with minimal disruption.

HealthStore has an inbuilt self-protection capability to ensure all ingested data is properly safeguarded and quickly recoverable in the case of loss, corruption, outages or disasters. This data can, therefore, be removed from the standard backup cycle thereby optimising existing Disaster Recovery strategy.
Provides a searchable, intelligent and secure store for content from legacy applications that are being retired or taken permanently offline, fulfilling compliance and governance commitments.
Solves the fragmented approach to purchasing storage hardware as HealthStore manages all tiers of storage, as well as full Information Lifecycle Management (ILM), needed to create a cost effective archive for a hospital’s clinical and non-clinical data.
Removes the burden of analytics and secondary use (e.g. research) from primary applications; with more data types being securely available through one interface, analytics and big data are more efficiently achieved and managed.
