Silk Enables OptaFi to Migrate and Modernize Their Customers’ Electronic Healthcare Records in the Public Cloud

Needham, MA – May 31, 2023 – Silk announces that OptaFi is now leveraging the Silk Data Virtualization Platform to help migrate and modernize their customers’ Electronic Health Records (EHR) in the public cloud.

With Silk, OptaFi helps their customers meet their cloud migration goals by enabling a predictable end user experience while keeping projects under budget and on time.

“EHR are notoriously difficult to migrate to the cloud given they require a high level of performance,” said Scott Mayo, GM/COO of OptaFi. “Introducing Silk into our solution stack allows our healthcare customers to realize the performance EHR workloads demand and increases scalability while controlling costs.

“The future of EHR is in the cloud. The cloud makes it possible to provide a better patient experience, improve faster access to data, enhance security, and increase scalability for times of greater patient activity,” said Itay Shoshani, COO, Silk. “Silk has a strong history of helping the healthcare industry migrate and modernize EHR. We are excited to be partnering with OptaFi to help their customers achieve the true promise of the cloud.”
