Logicalis, a global high-performance technology provider, has formed a partnership with BridgeHead Software, a provider of enterprise data management services, with the objective of providing expertise and technology to support critical healthcare IT environments.
The partnership is intended to help IT professionals at healthcare organizations worldwide, who must maintain a high level of data availability to assure patient care, while dealing with the exponential growth of electronic patient medical records and high-resolution medical imaging.
The two companies will provide a consultative resource and a software platform to support these requirements, as well as addressing the growing requirements related to retaining, securing and protecting patient records in compliance with regional regulations such as the US’ health insurance portability and accountability act, Europe’s EC 95/46 Directive, and Japan’s HPB 517.
Ryan Witt, senior vice president of sales and marketing at BridgeHead Software, said: Partnering with Logicalis will give us an edge in our goal of capturing an even bigger slice of the current healthcare opportunity. Success in healthcare, more than any other, depends on having an intimate understanding of customer needs and preferences and how the market functions. Logicalis has nurtured this market knowledge through trained division that sells into the sector and combines this with international reach and resources.
