Practice Fusion, the largest cloud-based electronic health records (EHR) system in the US, used by more than 100,000 health care providers managing over 100 million patient medical records, faced the need to move their four terabyte HIPAA audit reporting system off of a relational database. Practice Fusion selected MongoDB for their new HIPAA audit reporting system. Learn how the team designed and implemented a highly scalable system for storing protected health information in the cloud. This case study covers the move from a relational database to a document database; data modeling in JSON; sharding strategies; indexing; sharded cluster design supporting high availability and disaster recovery; performance testing; and data migration of billions of historical audit records.
