November 22, 2010 – Intuitive Imaging, a picture archive and communication system (PACS) provider, and Allied Telesis, a network equipment manufacturer, have formed a strategic partnership.
“’The network is the computer’ was a motto from the early days,” said J. Martin Pfaff, Ph.D., and president of Intuitive. “Today, in healthcare, it’s appropriately paraphrased as, ‘The network is the PACS.’”
Allied provides secure network design and support services. Intuitive Imaging has offered customer service and workflow customization to its PACS clients for more than two decades.
"The ever-growing healthcare sector has an insatiable need for large amounts of data to be transmitted, distributed and stored," said Chris Mangrum, Allied Telesis vice president of global healthcare IT solutions and architecture. "Allied Telesis networking technology solutions are uniquely optimized to support PACS requirements and to economically provide performance, reliability, and security. We are excited to be partnering with Intuitive Imaging Informatics and its broad-reaching capabilities in this dynamic market."
Being able to present a unified medical imaging solution not only creates a more reliable healthcare solution, but provides an improved customer experience. All types of clients – from smaller rural hospitals to multi-site imaging centers - can benefit from the seamless, symbiotic nature of the integration of a PACS with a network.
