Hospital Finds Replacement PACS to Host 700,000 Exams

March 17, 2010 - Clarian Health is Indiana's most comprehensive academic medical center and one of the busiest health systems in the United States. Recently it replaced its legacy PACS with a fully virtualized system and a complete disaster recovery/business continuance system serving five hospitals and nine outpatient imaging centers in the Indianapolis metropolitan area.

Comprised of multiple hospitals and health centers throughout Indiana, it maintains a strong partnership with the Indiana University School of Medicine. Fujifilm replaced more than 80 legacy servers with six virtualized servers to run Synapse PACS for all of these facilities. Currently about 700,000 yearly exams are being hosted with capacity for up to one million exams that will require no additional investment or modification since it is a fully scalable solution.

By reducing the amount of physical servers that need to be procured and maintained, Clarian can realize cost savings as well as green advantages like reduced power and cooling requirements that are critical to Clarian’s long-term goals. All of Clarian’s hospitals reported significantly reductions in report turnaround times from one to five hours.

Since completing the rollout of the new PACS, Clarian reported it reduced overall costs, while documenting increased efficiencies across the health system that are enabling improved patient care.
