May 30, 2007 - Carestream Health Inc. and Hitachi Data Systems have entered into an agreement to co-market a data management solution that will enable healthcare organizations to efficiently archive clinically relevant information from multiple systems in their facilities.
The solution combines Carestream Health’s Versatile Intelligent Patient Archive (VIParchive) and the newly enhanced Hitachi Content Archive Platform in a single footprint that is reportedly easy to install.
Carestream Health’s VIParchive is a software platform that can take clinical information from multiple healthcare sources and consolidate this information in an archive. VIParchive is reportedly a proven, scalable software solution that can benefit small hospitals and imaging centers, as well as large medical centers and huge regional healthcare systems.
The Hitachi Content Archive Platform is an active archive solution that is said to allow organizations to satisfy regulatory and corporate governance mandates and provide rapid access to archived data when needed. The solution strives to deliver automated policy management to ensure content authenticity, retention and integrity while also supporting advanced discovery capabilities through integrated indexing, search and retrieval features.
