Bookmark and Share

FAIR Health has chosen the Oracle Exadata Database Machine with a cluster of Oracle’s Sun ZFS Storage 7420 appliances for backup to support its database of more than 15 billion claims. An additional Sun ZFS Storage Appliance supports remote disaster recovery and development.

FAIR Health, which is an independent not-for-profit corporation committed to bringing transparency to healthcare costs and out-of-network reimbursement, sought a solution to streamline performance and eliminate the storage bottlenecks in its existing environment. With Oracle Exadata, the organization achieved substantial performance improvements, including a 5x reduction in claims processing time and a 10x faster average performance improvement in applying complex statistical methodologies.

FAIR Health’s data is used by insurance carriers, third-party administrators, healthcare providers, employers, researchers and consumers to process claims, provide information for pricing models, offer cost transparency and to help understand geographic variation in cost and utilization.

According to Oracle, FAIR Health needed a solution to streamline performance and eliminate the storage bottlenecks in its existing environment. With Oracle Exadata, FAIR Health tested its existing code and achieved significant performance improvements, including a 5x reduction in claims processing time and a 10x faster average performance improvement in applying complex statistical methodologies. In addition, using Oracle Exadata’s Hybrid Columnar Compression technology combined with the Sun ZFS Storage Appliance, FAIR Health achieved an average of 14x reduction in physical storage space for its primary Oracle Database storage, database backups, and disaster recovery site.
