Simplifies data retention and allows medical professionals access and share images regardless of the technology employed
Dell has announced its intent to acquire cloud-based medical archiving provider InSite One, to facilitate healthcare organisations simplify retention of healthcare data.
The InSite One offering helps customers reduce costs associated with long-term data storage and migration and eliminates the shortcoming of lack of sharing of images between medical professionals in the diagnosis and treatment of disease.
The company said that the combination of InSite One’s cloud-based, vendor-neutral archive software and storage services with its Unified Clinical Archive offering will simplify data retention and let medical professionals access and share images regardless of the technology employed.
In addition, InSite One will give Dell a storage-as-a-service platform to archive digital content for companies in other industries on a subscription or pay-as-you-go basis.
Dell said that through this acquisition it plans to provide customers with open and scalable offerings with deployment options that reduce the complexity and cost of storage and data management.
Further, Dell and InSite One will also provide healthcare customers with a secure, scalable, cloud-based, unified medical archive offering that supports HIPAA compliance and eliminates the silos of image information created when hospitals use multiple PACS.
Dell healthcare and life sciences services vice president Berk Smith said as the first company to bring cloud technology to the medical archive space, InSite One will help Dell’s healthcare customers take advantage of the economics and scalability of the cloud for medical archiving and retention.
"And looking beyond archiving, the cloud will also be a valuable tool for information exchange which is foundational to the transformation of healthcare," Smith said.
