Run and manage your healthcare applications autonomously on Kubernetes

Deliver reliable healthcare apps that work anywhere, all the time with NoSQL

Today’s healthcare leaders have to capture and share health data across patients, providers, insurers, pharmacies, and medical technology companies all while keeping up with changing medical regulations around HIPAA, the FDA, and more. These rising consumer, patient, and health provider expectations, coupled with competitive pressures, are creating new requirements for applications that relational technologies can’t address. For healthcare companies who are looking to keep up with this staggering pace of requirements, Couchbase provides the database that brings the scale, high performance, flexibility, and high reliability today’s healthcare applications demand.

BD’s Briight offers an always-on diabetes companion using Couchbase, moving the point of care closer to the patient and improving long-term disease management.

Why Couchbase NoSQL for healthcare

Availability: Built-in high availability and disaster recovery

Healthcare applications and services need to be available 24/7. Couchbase provides five-nines availability with built-in high availability and includes powerful cross datacenter replication (XDCR) capabilities to support disaster recovery and data locality requirements. With Couchbase, you have full control over the topology – unidirectional, bidirectional, or any configuration you need.

Mobile: Integrated mobile capabilities support connected health devices

Couchbase is the only NoSQL database that supports interactions online, in person (like the doctor’s office, a patient’s home, or the hospital), or on the go. Couchbase Mobile extends Couchbase Server to the edge with an embedded NoSQL database (Couchbase Lite) and a web gateway (Sync Gateway), to enable apps to work offline regardless of network availability, power the Internet of Medical Things (IoMT) at the edge and in the cloud, and support peer-to-peer replication.

Performance: Better performance and availability than any other database

While other NoSQL databases like MongoDB™ require a third-party cache – adding to both cost and complexity – Couchbase has a fully integrated read-through and write-through caching layer. Couchbase’s memory- and network-centric architecture consistently delivers the sub-millisecond responsiveness that today’s patients and caregivers expect.

Flexibility: Lower costs and faster time to market

Couchbase drives the flexibility and increased operational efficiency you need to not only get your healthcare applications deployed quickly, but to keep up with constantly changing data in those applications. Couchbase’s powerful query language allows developers to easily query JSON data using familiar, SQL-like expressions. Tightly integrated full-text search, real-time analytics, and powerful eventing services make it easy to add new features to your application on the fly without moving data into and managing dozens of database technologies, finally putting an end to database sprawl.

Secure: Meets the medical industry privacy regulations

Couchbase ensures HIPAA compliance with enterprise-level security throughout the entire platform including encryption, role-based access control, auditing, and more. Today’s leading medical and healthcare companies choose Couchbase to power mission-critical applications that meet these security and privacy regulations.

Scale: Easier, more affordable scalability

Couchbase’s network-centric architecture with a high-performance replication backbone allows the database to be easily extended while maintaining performance at scale. Unlike relational databases like Oracle and MySQL or NoSQL database MongoDB™, Couchbase scales (in, out, up, or down) easily and without disruption to meet these demands.

Healthcare applications with Couchbase

Health device management
Arrow

Health device management

Manage data collected from different sources and devices, push that data out to the edge, and make sure that data is always available, both online and offline. Cochlear, a leading provider of implantable medical devices, uses Couchbase to store its users’ custom device profile to provide analysis and real-time diagnosis. BD helps diabetic patients monitor their glucose levels with a platform built on Couchbase.

On-demand patient care
Arrow

On-demand patient care

Leading healthcare providers rely on Couchbase to provide always-available, on-demand experiences for caregivers providing medical assistance to patients. Applications always work, regardless of network availability – including in a patient’s home, at the hospital, or in a doctor’s office.

Health activity logging
Arrow

Health activity logging

Consumer-facing health applications that run on Couchbase get the advantage of being always available, all of the time, regardless of network connection or availability. This means that users can routinely input health information, see application data, and more.

Medical record management
Arrow

Medical record management

AEDES digitizes medical records for hospitals in the Democratic Republic of Congo and relies on Couchbase to be the data store behind those records. Couchbase powers the mobile apps that are used to collect the administrative and medical data at hospitals that typically have little to no network connection.

Mainframe offload
Arrow

Mainframe offload

By caching frequently used data, response times are improved and costs are substantially lowered through reduced workloads. If your app runs on a relational database like Oracle which requires costly hardware in order to scale, or a mainframe like Db2 which charges you by the MIP, a scale-out cache that runs on low-cost servers is more cost-effective.
