Transitioning a 4 TB Health Care Security Auditing System to MongoDB

Presented by Michael Poremba, Director of Data Architecture, Practice Fusion

Michael will share technical insights and key lessons learned by the Practice Fusion audit team, which can be leveraged for your own MongoDB projects. Key topics include: security, schema design, scalability, data migration, disaster recovery, and organizing the team of technical experts.

Practice Fusion decided to move the primary audit system for their Electronic Health Record (EHR) from SQL Server to MongoDB. The goal was to provide a scale-out data store for a system that was under IO pressure. The project required moving 4 TB of production data from a traditional database schema into a document data store while the system was in operation with a peak transaction throughput of up to 1,000 writes per second. The audit system is a tier-1 component mandated by law, and any interruption in the availability of the audit system would result in a system outage.
