ELLKAY Joins the Active Archive Alliance

Healthcare IT Company Brings Innovative Active Archive Solutions to Solve Modern Data Growth Challenges

BOULDER, Colo. June 23, 2021 – The Active Archive Alliance today announced that ELLKAY, a leader in healthcare connectivity, has joined the organization. ELLKAY joins a growing number of industry-leading storage and IT vendors that together support the use of active archive solutions for data lifecycle management.

“Active archiving is becoming a vital strategy for the healthcare industry due to rapid digital transformation, swelling data collections, and usage and retention requirements,” said Rich Gadomski, co-chairman of the Active Archive Alliance and head of tape evangelism at FUJIFILM Recording Media, USA, Inc. “Active archiving has become integral to successful data management solutions, and its prominence as a best practice is driving significant growth of the Alliance. We’re pleased to welcome ELLKAY to the Active Archive Alliance.”

The opportunity to derive benefit, insight, and value from the vast volumes of data being created is making active archives an increasingly important part of organizations’ data management roadmaps across a wide variety of industries, including healthcare, media and entertainment, telecommunications, utilities, financial, security and life sciences. An active archive manages data for rapid search, retrieval, and analytics – both efficiently and cost-effectively. It leverages an intelligent data management layer that enables online access to data throughout its lifecycle.

ELLKAY’s active archiving and data conversion solutions address the needs of growing hospitals, health systems, and practices that are upgrading technology, integrating multiple systems, connecting providers, and migrating newly acquired practices to enterprise EHR systems. “Healthcare organizations have accumulated years of important legacy data stored in disparate legacy systems,” said Ajay Kapare, ELLKAY’s chief strategy and marketing officer and CHIME Foundation board member. “Our LKArchive solution enables organizations to decommission legacy systems and provide data from multiple disparate systems within a single cloud-based archive solution that supports interoperability and data accessibility to deliver better patient care.”
