Wire Data Analytics Provider Continues to See Fast-Paced Adoption Among Healthcare Delivery Organizations and Solutions Providers

CHICAGO, IL – HIMSS – April 13, 2015 - ExtraHop, the global leader in real-time wire data analytics for IT intelligence and business operations, today announced rapid adoption of its wire data analytics platform in the healthcare vertical over the past year. New customers include IASIS, University of North Carolina Health Care System, Virginia Commonwealth University Health System (VCU Health), and Premise Health, among others. These organizations join a roster of healthcare delivery organizations (HDOs) and healthcare IT solutions providers already using ExtraHop, including Seattle Children's Hospital, Steward Health, McKesson, MedHost, Middlesex Hospital, and Portsmouth NHS Trust.

"Today's healthcare IT environments are incredibly complex and dynamic. At the same time, the repercussions of service disruptions, application slow-downs, and security and compliance issues can be significant for our facilities, clinicians, and patients," said David Hoffman, Assistant Vice President of Technology at IASIS. "With ExtraHop, we have the end-to-end visibility we need to ensure the performance, availability, and security of critical systems and applications, including Citrix and McKesson, throughout the IASIS health network."

Last September, in response to growing demand from the healthcare industry, ExtraHop introduced the ExtraHop Healthcare Edition, the first and only IT Operations Analytics (ITOA) solution with the ability to provide heterogeneous, real-time visibility into all HL7 transactions within a healthcare environment. Using Healthcare Edition, Healthcare IT and business leaders can now proactively discover and map HL7 communications across interfaces, analyze the performance and effectiveness of clinical workflows, and derive a wide range of valuable operational and business insights.

"With ExtraHop, application performance data into which we previously had no insight is now clearly visible and presented in ways that can be read by all those that provide support. Problems that might otherwise take days of troubleshooting can often be identified in minutes," said Brian Barltrop, Network Specialist at VCU Health.

"The rapid adoption by healthcare organizations validates the power of the ExtraHop platform to deliver value to both IT and business stakeholders," said Jesse Rothstein, CEO, ExtraHop. "Our users are leveraging real-time wire data analytics for a wide range of use cases, including tracking patient admissions, monitoring ER wait times, ensuring HIPAA compliance, and auditing ICD-10 migrations."
