Critical Access Hospital in rural Montgomery County, Iowa, reduces costs, lowers risks and increases services

Modern data management preserves 70 TBs of clinical, patient and operational data

Unified, hybrid virtual protection speeds creation of population health center

Tinton Falls, N.J. — April 26, 2017— Commvault (NASDAQ: CVLT), a global leader in enterprise backup, recovery, archive and the cloud, today announced that Montgomery County Memorial Hospital (MCMH) in Red Oak, Iowa, has successfully deployed the Commvault Data Platform to simplify data management and drive continued investment in progressive healthcare services. With Commvault, MCMH has streamlined back-end processes, enabling the rural community hospital to take on a broader role as a center for population health.

Classified as a Critical Access Hospital (CAH), MCMH receives federal funding to ensure the continual delivery of emergency services as the next closest hospital is more than 35 miles away. By replacing its legacy IBM Tivoli Storage Manager (TSM) platform with Commvault, the hospital dramatically improved data protection performance and reliability. As the weak link in its back-end operations, TSM required inordinate administration as a full-time resource and was tasked with troubleshooting problems with nightly backups.

By switching to Commvault, MCMH realized major gains in data protection performance while dramatically lowering backup and recovery costs, risks and administrative overhead. Managing backup and recovery operations now takes about 15 minutes each day, which frees a full-time resource to focus on more strategic initiatives. Moreover, unified virtual protection of the hospital’s VMware and Microsoft Hyper-V environments enables safeguarding and proper preservation of 70 TBs of vital clinical applications, patient medical records and healthcare reimbursement data.

“Commvault’s modern data management is a healthcare enabler, as we now can invest in new services without worrying about how to protect and preserve data,” said Terry Koppa, network administrator for Montgomery County Memorial Hospital. “It’s much more than just backup; Commvault is a major component of our infrastructure that allows us to excel in every aspect of being a progressive healthcare services provider.”

Commvault’s intuitive user interface, automated operation and comprehensive reporting has streamlined data management while boosting the hospital’s ability to comply with CAH, HIPAA, the HITECH Act, ICD-10, Meaningful Use and Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act. As a result, MCMH has begun offering advanced healthcare services, enticing specialists and surgeons to travel from Omaha, Nebraska, and other big cities to perform complex procedures and surgeries at MCMH.

“We are delighted with the successful deployment of Commvault software at Montgomery County Memorial Hospital and take great pride in helping them achieve their strategic IT and business goals through streamlined data management and protection,” said Ananth Balasubramanian, general manager of Worldwide Healthcare Business at Commvault. “We look forward to continuing our work together as we expand the breadth of the Commvault Data Platform across all of their business initiatives to reduce costs, increase IT outcomes and gain new levels of operational efficiencies.”

Thanks to Commvault, MCMH has newfound time and confidence in data protection to deploy new and expanded healthcare services, including a mobile health clinic and an online digital ECG management system. The organization also participates in a regional health information exchange that provides physicians with secure, private access to medical information from anywhere in the country. Moreover, MCMH is making major progress in rolling out a new population health service, called Life Science Technology, which provides patients with devices for monitoring blood pressure, blood sugar, weight and other variables that impact health.
