IBM Releases Interoperable Medical Imaging, Patient Data Archiving Solution

December 5, 2008 - At RSNA 2008, IBM unveiled a new combination of advanced imaging and information archiving technologies designed to provide healthcare and research organizations with complete and timely access to critical imaging and diagnostic information at the point of care – regardless of the source, age or location of the information.

IBM’s new Healthcare Image and Information Grid (HIIG) framework is built on open standards and enables physicians to make better decisions based on more complete information at the precise moment it is needed for a patient’s care.

The current enterprise-imaging environment has escalated demand for a scalable archive environment, robust imaging application architecture, and the ability to access image studies base on a patient-centered view of data. Further, imaging itself has moved far beyond the domain of radiology, becoming pervasive across the entire healthcare industry. Up until now, however, healthcare-delivery organizations have been challenged to fully integrate emerging technologies with their diverse, existing systems to improve patient care. IBM’s HIIG framework answers that challenge.

HIIG is a services-oriented solution built on open standards and interoperable services that provide healthcare organizations with integrated tools as well as a roadmap for the development of enterprise-wide image enabled medical archives. HIIG aims to provide clients with the ability to achieve this goal in today’s heterogeneous healthcare environment. HIIG is built on IBM’s Grid Medical Archive Solution (GMAS) used to protect and share critical medical and research data.
