Wolters Kluwer Health :Supporting Data Growth and Faster Processing of Mission-Critical Data with GigaSpaces' XAP MemoeyXtend
Date: March 10, 2015

Wolters Kluwer Health provides near real-time clinical content, clinical decision support and drug information for use by front-line clinicians at hundreds of hospitals and other healthcare organizations worldwide. The systems relied upon to provide this information must be highly performant, reliable, and scalable.

Challenge: Sentri7® is Wolters Kluwer Health’s flagship patient surveillance offering, used by clinicians and pharmacy staff in hospitals for clinical decision support. Sentri7 uses a high performance rules engine combined with an in-memory data grid based on XAP for surveillance, intervention, documentation, and reporting.

Whenever IT maintenance on Sentri7 is required, it is necessary to restart the grids, often taking anywhere from 30 minutes to over an hour to complete the process. With GigaSpaces XAP MemoryXtend, this process can be done 20 times faster.
