Press release: New CGM solution ensures highly available IT infrastructure


With the extension, doctors and dentists can access their practice and patient data at any time, even in the event of technical faults. CGM PROFESSIONAL LINE HA is particularly suitable for small to medium-sized medical and dental practices. Highly secure IT solutions are therefore no longer a cost-intensive privilege for large companies.

In the daily practice routine of doctors’ and dentists’ surgeries, the availability of practice IT has become increasingly decisive in recent years. Especially server failures quickly bring the practice to a standstill. Such breakdowns mean a loss of time and money for the practice. At the same time, delays in the process and waiting times have a negative effect on patient satisfaction and employee motivation. We are therefore looking for solutions that can guarantee the secure and consistent use of IT systems. CGM PROFESSIONAL LINE HA is one such solution. The new IT high-availability solution from CompuGroup Medical (CGM) combines servers from its own hardware line CGM PROFESSIONAL LINE with the V-Med solution from Collax GmbH. The result is an intelligent server virtualization and mirroring that detects technical defects and can thus prevent imminent downtimes of the practice IT. A permanent, real-time synchronization of all data also ensures the integrity of the practice data on two identical server systems at all times. If one of the servers fails, this virtualization allows work to continue without restriction or delay.

CGM PROFESSIONAL LINE HA is backed by CGM, the renowned German companies Collax GmbH and bluechip Computer AG. Both partners stand for security Made in Germany! Thanks to the cooperation with CGM, professional IT technology is now also available to doctors’ and dentists’ practices. “The CGM PROFESSIONAL LINE HA was specially developed to meet the requirements of doctors’ and dentists’ practices and guarantees a high level of IT reliability,” explains Wolfgang Stauch, General Manager of CGM subsidiary CGM IT Solutions und Services GmbH. “By combining our CGM PROFESSIONAL hardware line with Collax software, we can now offer doctors’ and dentists’ surgeries a highly professional security solution at a price that can also be implemented with the operating budget of a small to medium-sized practice. Access to professional high-availability and virtualization solutions is no longer reserved for large enterprises.”

Doctors and dentists can obtain the CGM PROFESSIONAL LINE HA from all authorized CGM sales partners (including Gotthardt Informationssysteme GmbH, K-LINE PRAXISLÖSUNGEN GmbH, CoSi medical IT GmbH, TURBOMED Vertriebs- und Service GmbH).
