HealthAlliance Hospital has implemented the IBM grid medical archive solution to make patient records available to clinicians anytime, anywhere.
With the help of IBM grid medical archive solution (GMAS), a cross-IBM offering comprised of storage, software, servers and services, HealthAlliance is now able to make all of their data, including PACS images, available instantly.
The GMAS solution provides hospitals, clinics, research institutions and pharmaceutical companies with an automated and resilient enterprise storage archive for delivering medical images, patient records and other critical healthcare reference information on demand.
Rick Mohnk, vice president and CIO of HealthAlliance, said: Fast, easy access to diagnostic images is a priority. The IBM GMAS has helped us stay competitive and offer the leading edge technology that attracts top physicians to our staff and keeps patients feeling comfortable and well cared for.
Hernan Vega, vice president of healthcare and life sciences at IBM’s system and technology group, said: Our GMAS solution enables clients of all sizes, from community hospitals to large integrated delivery networks and research institutions, to start out small and easily expand their archive over time.
