The new Digital Record Center is a disaster recovery and long-term archiving service powered by the HP Medical Archive solution (MAS).
As a managed service, the Digital Record Center for Medical Images works to provide secure, offsite, back-up protection reportedly without requiring hospitals and imaging centers to set aside storage systems, data center space, staff and capital investments. This aims to help medical institutions to reduce their storage costs and allows them to redirect resources to clinical operations.
Powering Iron Mountain’s latest storage service is HP MAS, an industry-specific solution for long-term archival storage of medical fixed content, consisting of factory-integrated HP disk storage and servers, as well as indexing and policy management software. HP recently made significant enhancements to HP MAS (3.0) to help healthcare providers improve patient care; facilitate regulatory compliance; increase storage flexibility; lower storage costs; and improve operational efficiencies. HP MAS is currently installed at more than 175 healthcare institutions in 15 countries.
