NEW ORLEANS, March 4, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --  CommVault (NASDAQ: CVLT) – HIMSS 13, Booth #4755 –

CommVault today announced at HIMSS 13 the results of its 2013 Health IT Survey, which reveals the various measures organizations are taking to improve the management and protection of all forms of electronic medical records (EMRs) and address HITECH, Meaningful Use and HIPAA compliance requirements.

The survey, which was conducted by HIMSS Media and commissioned by CommVault, polled 416 healthcare professionals who work in healthcare systems, multi-hospital systems, stand-alone hospitals, outpatient and other related healthcare providers or organizations to determine the most significant drivers behind their investments in data management technology. According to those polled, regulatory compliance continues to be the most important driver in IT spending, followed by the need to improve operational efficiency and provide better support for new applications and systems across clinical, operational, virtual and increasingly mobile environments.

The HIMSS Media survey also asked participants to identify the applications and business needs driving the most growth in their organizations and to list their top infrastructure investments for this year. EMRs and Picture Archiving and Communications Systems (PACS) were cited as the biggest contributors to data growth. Additionally, top areas of infrastructure investment include:

  • Electronic health records
  • Healthcare data warehousing
  • Health information exchanges
  • Information governance
  • Disaster recovery/continuity planning

Increased Demands to Protect, Manage & Access Critical Healthcare Information 

The impact of healthcare reform has resulted in a rapid surge in data creation, which intensifies the need to properly secure, protect, index and retain all types of information and patient records to comply with regulatory requirements. U.S. medical imaging data, for example, is growing exponentially as advancements in PACS technology are leading to the production of more and larger image files.
