Our team made their first foray into Solr building out Chart Search, an offering on top of Cerner's primary EMR to help make search over a patient's chart smarter and easier. After bringing on over 100 client hospitals and indexing many tens of billions of clinical documents and discrete results we've (thankfully) learned a couple of things.
The traditional hashed document ID over many shards and no easily accessible source of truth doesn't make for a flexible index.
Learn the finer points of the strategy where we shifted our source of truth to HBase. How we deploy new indexes with the click of a button, take an existing index and expand the number of shards on the fly, and several other fancy features we enabled.
