R-1 is a centralized, high-level, one-to-many file distribution system, engineered to perform in complex and dynamic IP networks (LAN, WAN, Internet, eCDN, satellite based, via Unicast and/or Multicast), is used by Focus Infomatics to improve WAN mirroring of audio files between Dictation Service Centers in the US and India.

RepliWeb, Inc., a leader in Enterprise Content Deployment Software Solutions, today announced that Focus Infomatics of Waltham, Mass., has selected RepliWeb's R-1 Distribution Manager to mirror audio files to Dictation Service Centers in the US and India.

Focus Infomatics provides Medical Transcription Services to a large and growing network of North American healthcare providers. The highly competitive Dictation and Transcription market mandates Focus Infomatics to distinguish itself by providing superior medical transcription services on a rapid delivery basis. The company’s services allow clients to reduce bill hold days, improve their revenue cycle, and meet HIPAA, JCAHO, and CMS compliance requirements.

Operating Transcription Service Centers in the U.S. and India, Focus Infomatics sought to automate, streamline and guarantee the delivery of dictation audio files (some 5000 files a day) from locations in North America to its Transcription Service Centers in the US and India.

“Right from the start, we noticed a significant difference in quality and reliability of the links connecting our production environments in North American and India. The line quality and necessary bandwidth were simply not there,” said Dayashankara, N.S. Director of Operations. “This gap in quality impeded our business processes and required us to dedicate IT staff to managing the transfer operations of the audio files. In order to meet our stringent Service Level Agreements, we identified two options 1) invest a significant amount of money upgrading our WAN links, 2) or identify new technologies that will improve the reliability and performance of our WAN-based file mirroring and subdirectory synchronization.

After extensive market analysis and testing, the Company selected RepliWeb’s R-1 Solution for Content Mirroring and Application Deployment. Since installation a year ago, R-1 has enabled Focus Infomatics to flawlessly mirror and deploy on a daily basis up to a 2 GB of audio content, consisting of over 5000 individual files, in an international 24x7, real-time operational environment.

“Focus Infomatics is a perfect example of a cutting edge, performance driven company that has implemented RepliWeb technology to meet stringent service level agreements and ultimately save on cost.” commented Garrick Herrmann, VP of RepliWeb. R-1’s capabilities enabled Focus Infomatics to fulfill business requirements and satisfying stringent HIPAA security requirements. We continue to help companies such as FI drive productivity and realize improved operating margins.”

Focus Infomatics reports the following reasons for picking RepliWeb’s R-1:

  • Exceptional WAN and LAN transport capabilities
  • User and Administrator friendly application, with very minimal learning curve and footprint
  • Extensive logging, auditing and alerting capabilities
  • State of the art security model that completely adheres to our existing corporate-wide security policies, thus required no amendment to our existing HIPPA compliant policies
