Pure Storage has achieved High Comfort status for use with all Epic applications! If you’re already using Pure, you know how great it is, but now it’s official! If you’re not already using Pure, read on.

The Storage Product and Technology Status Guide is the tool Epic provides its customers and prospects who are selecting healthcare infrastructure – with the goal of keeping their critical clinical apps running at top performance, and ensuring proper resilience in customer data centers. Customers also have benchmarks they need to achieve to be placed on Epic’s “honor roll.”

The Storage Product and Technology Status Guide presents options for configuration and assigns high, medium, low and experimental “comfort levels” for leading storage products that may be under consideration for adoption by customers. “Comfort levels” are defined by evaluating the customer’s long term success with the product, as well as a rigorous process of testing and measuring customer adoption and feedback.

The product’s real-world operational benefits, the number of customers, and ability to meet application needs, as well as the vendor’s customer service organization are also taken into account. All of these things together help to determine where a technology company’s products will be recommended for use in a technology ecosystem, and at which comfort level. We were delighted to learn that Pure moved from medium to high comfort in the December 2017 edition of the guide!

Many of the largest U.S. healthcare systems are Pure customers. By the way, you should be aware that Pure is certified or field tested with most other EHRs, as well as clinical, business, IT and analytics apps.
