Legacy Data Access (LDA), the leading turnkey archival solution for hospitals and health systems, today announced that it has joined the Active Archive Alliance, a non-profit consortium of business organizations committed to providing end users with technical expertise and guidance to design and implement modern active archive strategies.
Eleven years since the passage of the 2009 Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health (HITECH) Act, healthcare data has undergone exponential growth. Researchers estimated in 2019 that as much as 30% of the entire world’s stored data is health-related, and the World Economic Forum estimates that by 2025, 463 exabytes of data will be created each day globally.
LDA’s participation in the Active Archive Alliance will strengthen the company’s resources and expand its professional network, ensuring LDA’s healthcare system and hospital clients have access to the most advanced, world-class archiving standards and solutions.
Active archives enable reliable, online, and cost-effective access to data throughout its lifecycle, so providers can migrate their legacy healthcare data — from EHRs, revenue cycle management systems, ERPs, and even mainframes — to more flexible, cloud-based interfaces.
“Healthcare leaders are in need of intelligent data management solutions to help them transition into the future,” said Dan Richards, Chief Revenue Officer of LDA. “With new regulations pertaining to patient access and interoperability, as well increasing concerns over cybersecurity and protected health information (PHI), being part of the Active Archive Alliance will enable us to better serve clients and meet all of their legacy archiving needs, from migrating mainframe data to ensuring patient clinical data can be accessed securely and easily.”
“Exponential data growth across many industries, including healthcare, is spurring fundamental change in computing, storage and analytics and driving increased interest in active archive solutions,” said Betsy Doughty, vice president of corporate marketing, Spectra Logic, and co-chairperson of the Active Archive Alliance. “We are pleased to welcome Legacy Data Access to the Active Archive Alliance.”
