Wallingford, CT, December 3, 2009 – InSite One, Inc. the market leader in imaging data archiving and content management services, announced today that MedStar Health, a nine facility hospital system in Maryland and Washington, DC, has selected its InDex® Enterprise Archive for enterprise-wide medical data storage. The flagship InSite One solution will eliminate departmental data silos and streamlines information access by integrating imaging information across multiple locations into a single standards-based, application-neutral archive.
At MedStar, InSite One was instrumental in the migration and integration of archived data from multiple vendors’ PACS systems into the InSite One’s InDex Enterprise Archive. The MedStar project involves data migration of more than 150 terabytes of imaging data. This archive will support enhanced PACS workflow with advanced features like enterprise exam pre-fetching which includes body part filtering.
MedStar hospitals recently decided to standardize the PACS platform from four different vendors to a single vendor. Along with that objective was the need to standardize the archiving strategy and disaster recovery plans across all of the hospitals. This required a standards-based, vendor-neutral archive. “For the first time there is a consolidated vendor-neutral archive with all of the hospital’s imaging data,” explained Denis Dionne, assistant vice president of Imaging for MedStar Health. “The solution provides cost-savings over the current distributed archiving system while achieving enhanced performance and workflow efficiencies utilizing a standards-based open architecture. By using
InSite One’s InDex solution, we have a safety net for future vendor-neutral PACS requirements. MedStar has benefited from InSite One’s expertise in the intricacies of long-term multi-modality data storage in the past and this new solution will provide the infrastructure necessary for a centralized archive that enables seamless sharing of imaging data throughout our multi-hospital system.” Mr. Dionne concluded.
