ClearDATA to Provide TeraMedica VNA Solution as Part of Medical Image Cloud Management Solution

November 2, 2012 — TeraMedica Inc. announced that ClearDATA Networks Inc. is offering TeraMedica’s Evercore Enterprise Software Suite for cloud-based clinical image archiving. The distribution agreement will enable healthcare organizations to significantly enhance their image lifecycle management and greatly reduce operating costs through this cloud storage solution.

“There is a strong paradigm shift occurring now relative to clinical image management, and it’s being driven by the increasing need for connectivity and clinical content exchange,” said Del Coufal, TeraMedica vice president of marketing.  “Whether it’s due to HIEs [health information exchanges], meaningful use, ACOs [accountable care organizations] or all of the above, image storage and exchange is optimally addressed by vendor neutral solutions. Data must be made fluid and secure, instead of confined to a particular PACS [picture archiving and communication system] vendor. We are excited that ClearDATA has chosen TeraMedica and HP to address this growing opportunity in the most cost effective manner.”

“Cloud storage is rapidly changing the way the healthcare industry views, distributes, backs up and hosts DICOM and non-DICOM images,” said Darin Brannan, CEO of ClearDATA Networks Inc.  “Currently, storing medical images is cumbersome, storage intensive and requires a significant amount of equipment on the floor. The ClearDATA Cloud VNA solution will significantly reduce hardware expenses, support and maintenance costs for healthcare organizations and HIEs by moving those services to the cloud.”

TeraMedica’s patented Smartstore module intelligently manages the total image lifecycle of all clinical images throughout 24 healthcare departments. Smartstore provides shared enterprise infrastructure for managing clinical content based on business policies, specifically tailored to meet the needs of individual hospitals and/or departments.

Medical image storage has become one of the largest and fastest growing IT budget expenses for healthcare providers. “The old way of managing clinical content is simply not a practical solution moving forward — either from an economic sense or a clinical workflow perspective,” said Jim Prekop, TeraMedica president and CEO. “TeraMedica has installations that add a million images a year from as many as 9 different PACS systems. Different times demand different approaches.”
