Acuo Technologies, a developer of enterprise-wide collaborative asset management services, has signed a contract with Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia for a new archiving system for the hospital’s medical image management platform.
The company said that the integrated medical imaging system allows the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) to gain control of more than 60Tb of medical data such as x-rays, cardiology images and pathology slides, giving the hospital an automated service that will provide business continuity and result in a lower total cost of ownership.
According to the company, the system selected by CHOP is designed to allow all medical images to be stored on CHOP’s infrastructure, allowing the hospital’s electronic medical record portal to have one location to retrieve patient images, instead of multiple integrations and locations. The system will also ensure that all patient studies are safely stored, protected and can be accessed from any CHOP location in a consistent and reliable fashion.
Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia will be using the Acuo Dicom Assisted Migration to move data from the existing proprietary archive into the Acuo vendor neutral archive, ensuring that CHOP will be able to gain control of their data.
Jeff Timbrook, CEO of Acuo Technologies, said: We are extremely pleased to consummate this new relationship with one of the most prestigious Children’s Hospital’s in the world today. The lifecycle of clinical content for Children’s Hospitals is significantly longer than traditional healthcare providers. CHOP will certainly enjoy the many attributes and features of Dicom Services Grid as they make medical imaging content readily available at the point of need for all clinicians and patients in their delivery system.
