Dell's Unified Clinical Archive has set the standard for enterprise-wide management of medical images and related information
MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., Sept. 6, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Based on its recent analysis of the enterprise imaging informatics market, Frost & Sullivan recognizes Dell Healthcare and Life Sciences with the 2012 North American Frost & Sullivan Company of the Year Award. The company leverages decades of experience and collaborates with the right type of companies to improve its value proposition in the medical imaging market. Dell's ability to manage a wide variety of imaging data through its Unified Clinical Archive (UCA) solution remains unmatched in the industry.
As consolidation and normalization of imaging data is a pre-requisite for efficient collaboration and image exchange across the enterprise, Dell's UCA offers an easy-to-deploy, scalable and cost-effective solution to the Big Data imaging challenge.
Dell's UCA offers the widest scope of application for enterprise medical imaging in the industry. The technology has been honed to meet the specific needs of radiology, cardiology, pathology and a multitude of other image-using and image-producing departments across the enterprise. Its tight integration of Digital Imaging and Communications in Medicine (DICOM) and non-DICOM medical images, fixed content, and variable content data objects is a powerful enabler for enterprise imaging integration.
Through focused R&D efforts, acquisitions and strategic relationships with partners, Dell provides imaging customers with industry-leading vendor-neutral archive (VNA) and enterprise content management (ECM) capabilities. Further, the cloud-based model it innovated is now being validated by the broader IT industry.
"In addition to operating the industry's largest public cloud for medical imaging, Dell is also ideally positioned for the implementation of private clouds within multisite hospital and imaging center networks," said Frost & Sullivan Principal Analyst Nadim Daher. "Frost & Sullivan is confident that Dell Healthcare and Life Sciences' industry innovation, experience, and expertise have positioned it at the vanguard of new trends in the medical imaging informatics market."
Unlike other solutions that merely provide a file-based archiving approach, Dell's solution actually understands and processes the data under its umbrella. These capabilities aid more intelligent management of the data, which, in turn, empowers customers to develop more advanced clinical and business intelligence capabilities.
Dell's solution also succeeds in enabling enterprise-wide collaboration and image exchange between medical imaging enterprise stakeholders. Its clinical collaboration portal within the UCA framework, delivers on its promise to improve efficiency and productivity in medical imaging, and illustrates the power of next-generation imaging informatics. Therefore, it comes as no surprise that Dell Healthcare and Life Sciences has been experiencing the highest momentum in the enterprise medical imaging informatics marketplace in the last couple of years.
"The successful business model of the UCA has accelerated Dell's growth in the medical imaging marketplace, where more facilities are partnering more closely with the company for their online image management and offsite archiving needs," noted Daher. "By building trust and strong credentials in the imaging community, Dell has been able to raise its service levels from simply offering disaster recovery solutions to providing full-fledged online business continuity solutions."

This award signifies the company's identification of a unique and revolutionary product solution with significant market potential. Additionally, it certifies the company's marketing strategy as sound and poised for success.
