Creating Database Models for Healthcare Organizations

Watch the Replay >

Nearly every industry today is grappling with the IT issues surrounding the ever expanding volume of data, the numerous applications and databases that use data, as well as the regulations governing how that data is shared. But the healthcare industry faces a unique set of challenges in modernizing its infrastructure. Healthcare IT executives are being tasked with developing and operating solutions that integrate data from a range of patient, clinical, and back office systems to healthcare providers, patients, payers, technology and pharmaceutical companies. Federal regulations mandate that data and systems are interoperable and can be used for electronic health records (EHR) and health information exchanges (HIE) while meeting the requirements of ICD-10 and HIPAA 5010.

As healthcare companies tackle these projects, the IT project teams will first need to ensure they have the right tools in place to support the complex infrastructure required to design, build and run these 24x7 applications, and, most critically, the databases and data that they run on.

Unparalleled Performance for Health IT Applications

A myriad of problems can arise when developing or in production with an EHR or HIE system. From the time these applications are being designed, through to production, the IT team is responsible for its performance. Underpinning the performance of these 24x7 applications are the data and databases. Embarcadero provides the tools needed in every phase of your implementation to design, build and run your health IT databases and applications. Our tools accelerate sharing data, increase visibility into data growth, pinpoint and fix database performance issues to ensure 24x7 uptime.

Embarcadero provides you with the tools to:

  • Accelerate data integration and understanding of data sources from disparate applications and systems.
  • Increase visibility into data growth patterns with storage and object growth tracking facilities to reactively resolve problems.
  • Maximize database performance with diagnostics to proactively pinpoint, diagnose, and optimize poorly performing SQL code.
  • Ensure 24x7 uptime with database monitoring and alert notification solutions.
