Allegiance Health transfers patient records to the cloud


Allegiance Health has stored confidential patient data in the cloud with the help of Seven10 Select’s Storfirst Gateway.

Since 1918, Allegiance Health has offered advanced healthcare services and promoted a progressive philosophy of overall wellness.

The collaborative solution was delivered through the longstanding EMC and Seven10 Select technology connect partnership. Seven10 Storage Software is a developer of seamless data migration and cloud-based Information Lifecycle Management (ILM) software.

Seven10's Storfirst Gateway software migrates, protects and manages records in full compliance with HIPAA regulations while providing a seamless transition from legacy storage platforms.

"We recognized our organization's IT infrastructure must easily adapt to rapid innovation within the storage layer. At the same time, we were facing reliability concerns due to a change of control with our existing NetApp StorageGRID platform. As a result, Allegiance Health turned to Seven10," said Allegiance Health's information systems vice president and chief information officer Aaron Wootton.

The Seven10 solution of software migration plus data management eliminated the need for professional services while instituting a simplified, converged storage strategy with management that reduces complexities, cost, risk and overhead while adhering to healthcare privacy requirements.

"The combined offering from EMC and Seven10 provides Allegiance Health with an easy and safe migration solution for moving and protecting our critical patient data. Seven10's Storfirst migration and management software is very robust, allowing us to quickly and easily adopt the EMC cloud storage platform," said Wootton.

Bobby Moulton, president and chief executive officer, Seven10 Storage Software, added: "Traditional IT upgrades are time consuming, exhaustive and cost prohibitive. Seven10 understands there needs to be a better way to transition from legacy storage to next generation technology.

“We designed Storfirst to change how the healthcare industry approaches storage refresh projects so as to eliminate any interruptions in the patient care process. Putting an end to storage obsolescence means Allegiance Health spends far less time worrying about data migration efforts and more time on what matters most - patient care."
