Sentry Data Systems Announces Cloud Computing Platform for Healthcare

Datanex healthcare focused cloud computing platform released for independent solution providers

Sentry Data Systems announced the availability of the Datanex Platform to independent solution providers. The Datanex Platform is a healthcare focused cloud computing platform that allows solution providers to construct rich healthcare business intelligence applications and securely transport data across a comprehensive healthcare data infrastructure.

Datanex is a high performance electronic healthcare infrastructure and transaction processing fabric, which collects data from hundreds of disparate systems and data sources. The Datanex Platform is host to Sentry's current suite of products and reportedly serves hundreds of locations, millions of patients, thousands of providers across thirty states and currently processes millions of healthcare transactions each day.

The Datanex Platform includes security and privacy features, which protect the movement of data and constrain permissions to the respective owners of any Protected Healthcare Information.

The Datanex Platform provides five critical components, allowing ISVs to focus on their products and services:

  • Datanex GRID - a high security, highly scalable, on-demand virtual server infrastructure that can host client applications and interact with the other components of the Datanex platform.
  • Datanex QDC - the Quantum Data Construct, a proprietary, high performance, scalable distributed database with a shared-nothing architecture. Datanex QDC is built for storing and retrieving Health Record Units (HRU) across multi-million populations of patients and providers involving petabytes of associated information.
  • Datanex ETL - an Extract, Transform and Load infrastructure and associated service provided by Sentry which focuses on quickly extracting healthcare data formats and standards, with an emphasis on grading the quality of data and alerting when certain error thresholds are breached.
  • Datanex API - the Application Programming Interface that interfaces between Datanex QDC, the Datanex GRID, and applications. The Datanex API provides rich a rich toolkit to developers who need to access and utilize healthcare data, while not worrying about the underlying details.
  • Datanex NET - a secure Network Transport and Interoperability layer that brokers healthcare transactions between Datanex Platform instances and serves as a digital highway for platform subscribers.

The platform is currently available to a select group of enterprise application developers and healthcare entities.
