HIMSS10 – March 1, 2010 – Venyu, a leader in commercial solutions for data protection, availability and recovery and InSite One, the market leader in medical data archiving, exchange, and business continuance solutions, today announced a joint partnership aimed at helping healthcare institutions and providers manage soaring amounts of electronic medical data. Venyu, a PHNS subsidiary, also brings expansion opportunity to the partnership through geographically-diverse, SAS70 qualified, datacenters.
In the last five years, the amount of picture archiving and communications systems (PACS) imaging and traditional electronic data generated in the healthcare industry has grown exponentially. In addition, HIPPA regulations have ushered in new regulations governing how data must be protected and accessed in the event of a human or natural disaster.
“Advances in medical imaging technology, electronic medical records (EMR) and online medical collaboration between doctors, departments and specialists have created unique challenges for healthcare IT departments struggling to protect ever-growing amounts of electronic data,” said Venyu CEO Scott Thompson. “The Venyu and InSite One partnership will give hospitals and healthcare providers a powerful solution to tackle current and future data protection challenges with minimal disruption to existing environments.”
Venyu’s data protection and recovery solution is fully automated and maintains the highest industry standards for security, regulatory compliance, and recoverability. The Venyu Virtual Disaster Recovery platform enables rapid availability and recovery by virtualizing production servers and negating the need for duplicated hardware or unreliable – and often inaccessible – tape backup systems.
“InSite One together with Venyu will deliver to the healthcare market necessary and demonstrated data protection and data delivery with the InDex vendor-neutral enterprise archive that ensures on-demand access to archived studies from any authorized application,” comments Jim Champagne, InSite One’s President and CEO. “The blending of our companies technologies offers a uniquely qualified and cost-effective toolset that protects digital healthcare data from imaging to the elements of electronic medical records.”
InSite One services have become the de facto standard for the diagnostic imaging industry, in use at hundreds of hospitals, radiology departments, imaging centers, and physician group practices around the country. Clients vary considerably in size and complexity, and include Good Samaritan (CA), Washington Hospital Center (Washington, D.C.), Hartford Hospital (CT), InSight Health (CA), and Arizona Breastnet .
