Eliminate Downtime Risks and Double MEDITECH Performance

More hospitals use MEDITECH-approved Condusiv I/O reduction software than any other software to remediate the File Attribute List (FAL) growth issue, prevent file fragmentation from occurring, and boost electronic health record performance.

The MEDITECH EMR application can experience fragmentation that lends itself to two problems (1) Sluggish EMR performance (2) risk of application failure or critical downtime as soon as the FAL reaches its size limit, a Windows File system limitation. As such, MEDITECH requires users to have a fragmentation remediation plan.

Not Just a "Defrag"



Condusiv's fragmentation prevention and DRAM caching software contains an additional engine called "MediWrite" that optimizes behavior specific to the MEDITECH platform. MediWrite monitors files for extreme cases of NTFS file fragmentation that could severely impact server and storage performance once the FAL reaches its maximum size limit and causes unnecessary downtime to resolve. MediWrite takes special action on these files to mitigate the problem and, more importantly, proactively prevents extreme cases of fragmentation from occurring in the first place. MediWrite is unique from all other defragmenters in handling the FAL fragmentation. Because of restrictions in the Windows file system, all other defragmenters can actually make the FAL size grow when they defragment a file. Condusiv’s MediWrite technology can defragment without growing the FAL size, the only defragmenter to do this and why we are the recommended solution.

MEDITECH Speaks Out on Fragmentation and Condusiv Software

With Condusiv software, MEDITECH customers get two really important benefits – first, they avoid downtime; second, they boost application performance because instead of getting a bunch of small, tiny, random writes and reads, they’re getting nice, clean contiguous writes that deliver more payload with every I/O operation.

From our Customers


CHRISTUS Health Doubles Electronic Health Record Performance

"Facing a $2 million storage purchase to solve our performance issues didn’t sit well with any of us. We heard what V-locity I/O reduction software had done to help other MEDITECH hospitals, so we were eager to try it for ourselves. After deploying V-locity and conducting a before/after performance analysis, we found that V-locity doubled the speed of our patient records. V-locity provided enough speed to meet our application SLAs, so there was no longer a need to make a $2 million storage purchase for increased performance." Tom Swearingen, Infrastructure Services

Community Medical Center (CMC) Speeds EHR and SQL Applications

"Regarding cost savings, the value we receive from V-locity in not having to worry about our MEDITECH systems crashing due to FAL growth is invaluable. It doesn't take long for downtime to accumulate into hundreds of thousands in lost revenue. However, the real surprise was the performance gains on our heaviest workloads.

"There's no way we would have achieved a 5 year lifecycle on our storage system without V-locity offloading so much I/O traffic from that subsystem. We had no idea how many I/O operations from virtual server to storage were essentially wasted activity due to Windows write inefficiencies chewing up IOPS or hot data that is more effectively served from available DRAM." Joe Buckminster, IT Director

Hancock Regional Hospital Deploys V-locity for MEDITECH on Virtual Servers to Solve Critical Perormance Issues

"I started looking at the SAN, then heard about the problem of excessive split I/Os generated by the Windows® OS, which is magnified in I/O intensive applications like MEDITECH. I was coming in early every month to reboot everything, just to gain more speed during end-of-month reporting. This isn't a workable long-term solution, particularly for our users, who were experiencing the worst of it.

"Compiling a list of 16 patients took 13 seconds. With V-locity it now takes only five seconds to load 19. That's a major improvement when you're talking about a busy day in the ER.

"Across all 60 servers, we're seeing an average increase in IOPS of 225% and response time improvement of 67%." Ryan Barker, Technology Specialist
