BridgeHead Software has been pioneering Healthcare Data Management solutions for almost 30 years. Trusted by over 1,200 hospitals worldwide, BridgeHead offers innovative, scalable and future-proof software and services to help healthcare organisations to consolidate, store, protect, and share one of their most valuable assets – patient, clinical and administrative data.
BridgeHead’s RAPid™ Data Protection suite offers backup, disaster recovery, and archiving solutions to safeguard mission critical systems and data across the healthcare enterprise, whether on-premise or in the Cloud. Increasingly, BridgeHead’s customers are outsourcing the running of their RAPid environments to our team of data protection experts. This provides health IT departments with ‘peace of mind’ safe in the knowledge that their applications and data are not only fully protected, but that the RAPid team is on standby to recover systems and data should they fall foul to a cyberattack, system/application failure, or data loss/corruption/deletion.
BridgeHead’s HealthStore® is a unique enterprise-wide, cross-department, clinical data repository and registry that can consolidate, store, protect, and provide access to a combination of documents, medical images, and/or discrete data; all in one place! HealthStore is helping NHS and private healthcare organisations to manage data from legacy applications. As newer systems are introduced, legacy applications are left behind (such as old EPRs, LIMS, PACS, or even homegrown systems). Over time, these legacy systems become a security threat, increasing clinical, operational, financial, and reputational risk. BridgeHead’s HealthStore eliminates these risks by extracting all of the data from your legacy applications; storing and protecting it within HealthStore; and making it available as part of the patient record (via integration with your EPR). The source applications can then be retired – saving time, money, and resources; all whilst reducing security vulnerabilities and associated risks.
