Bridgehead Software’s PACStore v2 is a long-term archiving solution that consolidates data from disparate PACS systems, enabling it to be centrally managed and accessed while providing reportedly powerful federated search facilities.
PACStore improves clinician access to imaging data, enhances business continuity and reduces the IT storage and management burden of retaining imaging data over the long term. By incorporating a fully featured industry standard Digital Imaging and Communications in Medicine (DICOM) storage class server and Health Level Seven (HL7) interface, PACStore software fully integrates into existing healthcare IT infrastructures. It creates a central repository for imaging data with a single point of access. Data in the repository is automatically repositioned between different IT storage tiers during its lifetime to minimize storage costs. And because multiple copies of the data can be maintained in multiple geographic locations, the system improves business continuity and allows web based access to DICOM images even when primary PACS systems are unavailable.
