CareFinity Business Continuity & Disaster Recovery

EHR Business Continuity & Archiving Solution

EHRis and eMedApps have teamed up to provide a comprehensive business continuity and archiving solution for today's modern practice. 

Every healthcare organization needs a comprehensive business continuity plan. Relying on paper during unplanned outages from severe weather, software transitions, or network downtime is not a safe nor secure option. With no access to patient records, schedules, documents, images, and notes, it’s nearly impossible to run a clinic or health system. Even planned outages, upgrades, and conversions require access to a comprehensive patient record.

An efficient business continuity solution will save your healthcare organization from the lost revenue and damaged reputation caused by short-term EHR and health IT system outages.

CareFinity for Groups with One Location 

Patient data is copied from the EHR to CareFinity every 15-30 minutes. CareFinity copies can be located at your main site or hosted off-site at our data center. Users access patient information using the CareFinity icon on their desktop, or through their mobile device. The application is always up and ready to use so you can continue to see patients with their entire chart history at your fingertips.

Keep Your Practice Running

Our CareFinity business continuity solution syncs a copy of pertinent patient data and schedules every 15 minutes ensuring accurate, up-to-date patient records and schedules are available anytime, whether your EHR is available or not.

Unlike some other PDF/Print based solutions on the market, CareFinity is a versatile application that brings the data to your fingertips and allows you to document your visit without resorting to paper. Our browser-based application allows clinicians, schedulers, and administrative staff to securely access stored patient information from any device – including mobile devices – whenever and wherever they need it.

How CareFinity Works
Every 15 to 30 minutes, CareFinity copies all changes made to patient data in your EHR to one or more “clone” servers. If the EHR is unavailable, users simply click on the CareFinity icon from their desktop or mobile device, log in, and view their current appointment schedule or patient search screen.

Simply choose a patient from the schedule or search for the desired patient and CareFinity will deliver all the data, images, results, notes, and documents you need.

Document Your Visits With CareFinity While the EHR Is Down
With CareFinity, you can document your visit in real time and the system will put the note back into the patient’s chart in the EHR when it becomes available.

CareFinity with Remote Locations or Hosted EHR Application

CareFinity can be installed at select remote locations. If connection to the main EHR is lost, remote clinics can access their local CareFinity copy. This configuration also works well for hosted EHRs. If your Internet connection to the EHR goes down, you can access your local CareFinity copy and continue to see patients.

Flexible Configuration to Solve Your Unique Downtime Worries

Each clinic has its own downtime concerns. If your EHR is hosted by a third party, you may be concerned about your Internet connection. If your EHR is housed in your own data center, then hardware failure or natural disasters may worry you. If you have multiple locations, you may be worried about outages when your main EHR site is unreachable.

Our CareFinity solution can be configured to handle all these concerns and any others you may have. We will work with you to configure the best solution for your unique needs.
