As part of our continuing podcast series, Dana Gardner, president and principal analyst for Interarbor Solutions, recently conducted an interview with Greg Gootee, product manager at MZI HealthCare. MZI HealthCare develops and provides sophisticated software solutions that are flexible, reliable, cost effective, and help reduce the complexities of the healthcare industry.
In a post on ZDNet, Dana shares some of the highlights from his podcast with Greg Gootee:
Doctors make informed decisions from their experience and the data that they have. So it’s critical that they can actually see all the information that’s available to them.
The other critical thing was speed, being able to deliver high-end analytics at the point of care, instead of two or three months later, and Vertica really produced. In fact, we did a proof of concept with them. It was almost unbelievable some of the queries that ran and the speed at which that data came back to us.
The ability to expand and scale the Vertica system along with the scalability that we get with the Amazon allows us to deliver that information. No matter what type of queries we’re getting, we can expand that automatically. We can grow that need, and it really makes a large difference in how we could be competitive in the marketplace.
