BridgeHead Opens the Door to its PACStore at HIMSS

March 30, 2009 - Bridgehead Software announced the latest version of PACStore, a long-term archiving solution that consolidates data from disparate PACS systems, enabling it to be centrally managed and accessed while providing powerful federated search facilities.

PACStore is designed to improve clinician access to imaging data, enhance business continuity and reduce the IT storage and management burden of retaining imaging data over the long term.

By incorporating a fully featured industry DICOM storage class server and HL7 interface, PACStore software fully integrates into existing healthcare IT infrastructures. It creates a central repository for imaging data with a single point of access. Data in the repository is automatically repositioned between different IT storage tiers during its lifetime to minimize storage costs. And because multiple copies of the data can be maintained in multiple geographic locations, the system improves business continuity and allows web-based access to DICOM images even when primary PACS systems are unavailable.

PACStore’s DICOM Storage Server is at the heart of the new software. DICOM is a medical imaging industry standard, so any modality or PACS that can transmit DICOM can send data to PACStore. Additionally, clinical workstations can access data from PACStore via the DICOM protocol.

The product’s support of the HL7 messaging interface, the standard for electronic health information exchange, enables the PACStore repository to be automatically updated with changes to patient data on the hospitals’ Health Care Information System / Radiology Information System (HCIS/RIS).
