Book Call

Imagine this. Your EHR goes down. You have backups but restoring them is going to take a while. And your clinical staff now have to contend with no access to critical patient data! How can they be expected to provide the high level of care expected of them without the information they need while you wait for tapes to come back from your offsite store?

Now, imagine the same situation. But, this time you can immediately start restoring either from the local deduplication appliance or, if the local storage is completely damaged, from the Cloud. No more waiting hours for tapes to be delivered. And your backups no longer fail because you ran out of scratch tapes.

Cloud Backup as a Service (CBaaS)

A service offering a range of solutions to enable healthcare organizations to leverage the Cloud for the safe and efficient offsite storage of backups.

BridgeHead’s Cloud-Backup as a Service (CBaaS) offers a seamlessly integrated, two-tier solution for safeguarding your mission critical EHR data.

CBaaS, an option within BridgeHead’s RAPid™ Data Protection solutions, leverages the latest in deduplication technology, low cost Cloud storage, and proven data backup software. Should your EHR go down, due to ransomware, unexpected system outage, or natural disaster; BridgeHead’s support services can get to work – immediately identifying which systems need to be recovered, restoring your systems and/or data quickly, monitoring the restores so any issues can be efficiently resolved (allowing you to concentrate on the bigger picture), as well as investigating how the problem arose in the first place in order to prevent the situation reoccurring.
