As a MEDITECH hospital, your patients and staff rely on you to make HCIS data available at all times - even during unforeseen disasters, system failures, and data corruption events. While there is some flexibility re-establishing normal operations during the unexpected, you need to know that a reliable, recent copy of all your data can be easily brought back into live production quickly and predictably.

BridgeHead Software has enjoyed a unique relationship with MEDITECH® for the past ten years, first teaming up in 2001 to create Integrated Serverless Backup (ISB), which was followed up in short order by Integrated Disaster Recovery (IDR). To this day BridgeHead is still the only vendor offering data protection software that works on every MEDITECH-certified SAN. In fact, MEDITECH is so confident in BridgeHead's solutions that they use them for their own data management.

To help you achieve that goal, BridgeHead's MEDITECH ISB and IDR Backup Agents provide a comprehensive solution for the backup and disaster recovery of your HCIS. By using a unique method for automatically creating consistent point-in-time copies of MEDITECH data, BridgeHead's MEDITECH ISB and IDR Backup Agents can either backed up HCIS data or replicate it to secondary storage.
