Telemis Rolls Out Cloud Computing PACS Data Storage Service

Medical-Quality Cloud Computing Provides Cost-Effective Storage That Meets Healthcare-Data Standards

May 23, 2012 — Telemis announced it has added cloud data storage, offering increased flexibility, convenience and cost effectiveness for customers of its picture archiving and communication system (PACS). The Telemis cloud technology provides secure storage and access to data such as positron emission tomography/computed tomography (PET/CT) scans, and meets all patient-data handling requirements imposed by local or national authorities.

Telemis is considering successful deployments at reference sites throughout Belgium, France, Switzerland and elsewhere, meeting all locally applicable laws covering patient data storage. Typically legislation may call for partnerships with accredited data centers located within the same country. Telemis has put in place all the medical layers, in terms of software and services, to ensure legal compliance as well as enhancing patient support.

“Our reference sites are among the early adopters of cloud technology in the healthcare sector, and are reaping the benefits of increased flexibility and cost effectiveness ahead of the curve,” said Stephane Ketelaer, CEO of the Telemis group. “Telemis is positioned to offer the expertise and resources needed to support rapid, widespread adoption going forward.”

Among the applications making up the service, Telemis’ TM-Publisher provides a Web interface enabling hospital consultants as well as patients and their general practitioners (GPs) to access data securely via the Internet. Two pass-codes are associated with individual patient records, enabling authorized access to data at any time without bandwidth limitations. This helps overcome the problems GPs often experience accessing traditional hospital-based servers, if large numbers of doctors demand service. Patients also can access their own records online. Images can be stored in either DICOM (digital imaging and communications in medicine) or .jpg format, eliminating reliance on paper, films or CD-ROM. The Web interface also provides tools such as zoom, rotate and measure, assisting analysis.

Another option is for public or private health organizations to migrate archives from on-site storage such as a NAS or SAN to the cloud, without requiring their own managers to perform specific configuration tasks. Optimal data confidentiality is maintained throughout the migration.

Telemis is presenting the first demonstration of its cloud technology during the Health Information Technologies exhibition and conference, taking place May 22-25 in Paris.
