Each time a patient engages with the medical system, data is generated. A visit to a physician, a confinement, a diagnostic procedure or a prescription all generate data. This is collected for administrative, billing or claims purposes and can be used to improve the healthcare services and benefits themselves. Data like this usually comprises a large number of small file. These files are used as long as the patient is engaged with the medical system, but are archived when the patient is not. This requires a complicated filesystem with reliable storage that can automatically tier files in various storage layers based on frequency of use.
To answer all above data storage requirements in a single purchasing decision, the decision must not only be based on size, capacity or price. The solution must have the future in mind, use modern technologies and have great performance and expandability. It must create a union between cutting edge technologies and endless limits while maintaining compatibility and usability. For that specific reason VFusion Vortex has been created.
