Siemens Cloud Solution Optimizes Image Management, Workflow
In a strategic alliance with Dell, Siemens will deliver a cloud-based vendor-agnostic image sharing and archiving (ISA) solution. The ISA offering will be primarily hosted out of Siemens Healthcare Cloud Computing Center (HCCC), using Dell’s clinical data management software. Additionally, Siemens and Dell will securely federate their respective healthcare clouds, providing customers an additional form of redundancy for this key clinical content. The solution will help healthcare providers reduce the ongoing capital expenditure of maintaining on-site image archives.
With Siemens ISA, healthcare organizations can reduce ongoing capital expenditure that is typically incurred from the maintenance of local, on-site image archiving hardware. Modern imaging modalities generate tremendous volumes of data that can quickly outpace the growth rate of on-site storage. ISA provides the scalability to change in accordance with a facility’s needs, and peace of mind with an efficient disaster recovery strategy. Additionally, the ISA solution stores imaging content in a vendor-neutral format, enabling imaging department administrators to realize a simpler data migration plan when switching to a different picture archiving and communications system (PACS) solution. Finally, the offering enables hospitals to share imaging data across specialties and departments in the enterprise – putting the images in the hands of referring physicians faster. Customers who choose the ISA solution can begin using their vendor neutral archive (VNA) within three to six months of signing.
