AHCS is the leading provider of technology enabled dispensing solutions for workers compensation providers and patients with location in 36 states including Hawaii and Alaska

AHCS has developed a powerful, next generation claims management technology platform, called ezDispense for point of care medication dispensing which is web based and can be accessed anywhere internet is available

The platform enables the Company to remove many of the traditional barriers associated with physician dispensing, while virtually eliminating reimbursement risk and ensuring patients receive their medication

The AHCS model is a guaranteed program so all our information must be accurate, secure and in real time without interruption or delay

Our providers require live on-demand critical life saving data like allergy and drug interaction information as well as refill to soon and other safety information

The AHCS platform reports to all state and government entities the dispensing information of all providers dispensing controlled medicationsWhat we do at AHCS

Storage NeedsAHCS needed to acquire a storage solution which would allow us to give the highest SLA possible to its providers without the need for Maintenance Windows

We needed to know that our data integrity would be safe and secure

We needed reliability with survivability under multiple failure scenarios without impact on software delivery

We needed to scale up in horsepower, not just storage as we grew

Wanted to get away from controller/shelf methodology

Why SolidFireAbility to perform upgrades, expansions and patches during production hours without the need for maintenance windows

Distance ourselves from traditional RAID methodology with extensive rebuild times

As nodes are added (during production hours even) we are able to add performance resources as well as storage (IOPS)

No single point of failure, we can lose half our stack and still remain 100% up without impact on performance

Ability to guarantee bandwidth at the application level

ESG Labs analysis predicted that SolidFire automation could help lower operating expenses by as much as 67%. Because the SolidFire deployment consisted of a single system, contained no management silos, and was designed to automate the most time-consuming administrative tasks, the benefits of automation were clearly evident for nearly all of the storage tasks that were modeled.
