June 24, 2011 — AT&T announced that Baptist Health System and Henry Ford Health System have signed agreements to pilot its new cloud-based Medical Imaging and Information Management service. Doctors will be able to quickly connect to patients' medical images, regardless of which device originally took the image, allowing them to offer faster treatment. The service will help lower costs in an industry where it can take multiple and unconnected systems and devices to transmit a single image.

Two Major Healthcare Systems Pilot Cloud-Based Solution

Baptist Health System, one of the largest healthcare systems in Alabama and one of the state's largest employers, has first-hand experience with increasing storage and management requirements given its scale, vendor complexity and forecasted growth. Baptist Health System has accumulated more than 2 million images and creates about 30,000 new images per month, or 350,000 annually, that it would like to share throughout its physician community.

Henry Ford Health System, based in Michigan, plans to use the service to store new cardiology medical imaging studies and to move other cardiology studies from its existing solution to the AT&T solution. It expects to gain efficiencies from consolidated expandable storage, providing cloud-based access to cardiologists in various heart centers.

The solution helps providers to store, access, view and share patient medical images and information inside hospital systems and outside with referring physicians and other authorized facilities over a highly secure infrastructure.

AT&T Medical Imaging and Information Management is a vendor-neutral, cloud-based service that combines AT&T Synaptic Storage as a Service with Acuo Technologies Universal Clinical Platform. The service provides access, viewing, storage and sharing of medical images from disparate picture archive communications systems (PACS) sold on an as-needed, pay-as-you-go model.
