HIMSS17, Orlando, Fla. and Tinton Falls, N.J. – February 21, 2017 - Commvault (NASDAQ: CVLT), a global leader in enterprise backup, recovery, archive and the cloud for the healthcare market, today announced a technology collaboration with Harmony Healthcare IT, a leading provider of services and solutions that safeguard patient information, ensure cash flow, and increase productivity. Through the integration of the Commvault Data Platform with Harmony Healthcare IT’s archiving solution, Health Data Archiver, healthcare customers can manage the complicated process of decommissioning legacy applicationsby retiring Electronic Healthcare Records (EHR) and Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) systems while enabling them to access and protect important clinical and business data. Today’s announcement was made at HIMSS 2017, being held Feb. 19 – Feb. 23, in Orlando.

In addition to data management and protection, customers using the Commvault Data Platform with Heath Data Archiver gain increased analytics capabilities by having data from decommissioned applications available for indexing and reporting through Commvault Software, as well as expanded eDiscovery and search functionality.

“We are pleased to team up with Commvault to empower healthcare providers to embrace holistic data management strategies that modernize the way they manage, migrate and share clinical data,” said Tom Liddell, CEO, Harmony Healthcare IT. “With the addition of our product and services, Commvault Clinical Archive give customers the power to derive the most value out of all data, regardless of whether it’s in production use or from decommissioned applications.”

The collaboration between Commvault and Harmony Healthcare IT, extends Commvault’s data management portfolio and archiving capabilities in EHR and ERP application decommissioning. In tandem with Commvault Clinical Archive, announced at HIMSS last year, Commvault is transforming the way healthcare providers are managing, migrating and retiring EHR, and other legacy applications. As a result, customers are breaking down data silos, reducing storage costs and complexity, enable better data sharing, and eliminating the burden of maintaining and supporting legacy applications.

“As healthcare providers recognize the tremendous operational and financial benefits in decommissioning outdated legacy applications, data from those systems will still need to be accessed, managed and protected since it often needs to be retained for business, compliance and regulatory reasons,” said Ananth Balasubramanian, General Manager of Commvault's Healthcare Solutions Group. “With customers now able to use Health Data Archiver to decommission legacy applications, they can optimize healthcare IT operations, reducing maintenance application costs, while accessing and managing critical clinical and business data.”
