Siemens Healthcare, Harris Offer Solutions for PACS Disaster Recovery Solutions

April 6, 2009 – The Image and Knowledge Management (IKM) business unit of Siemens Healthcare and Harris Corp. are joining forces to offer healthcare providers reportedly affordable solutions critical for PACS disaster recovery to support business continuity.

Siemens IKM business unit and Harris created an initiative that will help make PACS disaster recovery easily attainable and affordable. This collaboration is intended to provide customers with the synergetic competencies acquired by decades of combined experience in healthcare and network technologies. The greatest benefit to the customer is fast and secure recovery in the event data is lost in a natural or human-induced disaster, according to Siemens. The solution provides access to dedicated fiber-optic, microwave, satellite communications, and landlines that are part of the Harris Wide Area Network, which will connect the local PACS deployments to the disaster recovery capabilities at the Harris network operations facilities.

Because this offering is based mainly on the infrastructure and resources available from Harris, and leverages the hardware and software within the customer's existing PACS solution, the customer is not required to make any major upfront capital investment. In addition, the managed disaster recovery services that come with this solution make recovery easily attainable.

As a provider of innovative solutions for imaging IT, Siemens IKM business unit supports imaging workflow processes to achieve greater efficiency and accuracy while reducing costs. Siemens IKM offerings encompass products and solutions for radiology information systems (RIS), PACS, Cardiovascular PACS, as well as, advanced imaging applications and computer-aided detection (CAD).
