- Four billion diagnostic imaging objects now under cloud management
- Momentum highlights benefits and cost efficiencies of cloud-based archiving in healthcare
ROUND ROCK, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Dell InSite One is now managing more than four billion diagnostic imaging objects and associated reports with its managed cloud enterprise archive. This makes Dell one of the largest healthcare cloud computing service providers in the industry. By consolidating and moving long-term medical archiving to the cloud, hospital staffs simplify their infrastructure and can reduce storage and retention costs. They also can free financial and personnel resources for critical business objectives and longer-term accountable care reimbursement.
Dell’s archiving-as-a–service capability, acquired through a cloud-based medical archiving leader InSite One, is increasingly attractive to healthcare organizations contending with medical imaging data that is projected to increase from 28 percent of all data in 2010 to 35 percent of all data in 20151 and needing to simplify image sharing within their organizations. New customers, such as Saint Barnabas Healthcare System and MedStar Health, are driving Dell InSite One cloud-based medical archiving to record levels. In March, healthcare organizations archived 1.4 million new studies in the cloud with Dell, surpassing an average of 1.2 million studies in previous months.
Cloud-based archiving is a feature of Dell’s Unified Clinical Archive (UCA) solution -- a secure, scalable, unified medical archive solution that helps eliminate the silos of image information created when hospitals use multiple Picture Archiving and Communication Systems (PACS). UCA combines vendor-neutral DICOM software with object-based storage and services to simplify archiving for IT professionals and access to images for medical professionals.
“This milestone demonstrates the value and increasing acceptance of the Dell InSite One cloud archiving and storage management service model,” said Jim Champagne, Executive Director, Dell Healthcare Services. “With the emphasis today on medical information-sharing with better informed medical decision-making, Dell’s archiving services and cloud delivery platform address the dynamics of this market’s needs.”
