Dell to acquire Insite One

Dec. 23, 2010

ROUND ROCK, Texas, Dec. 22, 2010  Dell today announced its intent to acquire cloud-based medical archiving company InSite One to help healthcare organizations simplify retention of healthcare data. The InSite One solution helps customers reduce costs associated with long-term data storage and migration and eliminates one of the biggest shortcomings in healthcare today—the lack of sharing of images between medical professionals in the diagnosis and treatment of disease.

The combination of InSite One’s cloud-based, vendor-neutral archive software and storage services with Dell’s Unified Clinical Archive solution will simplify data retention and let medical professionals access and share images regardless of the technology employed.

InSite One Industry Leadership

InSite One, headquartered in Wallingford, Conn., currently manages nearly 55 million clinical studies, more than 3.6 billion medical images and supports almost 800 clinical sites. It has become the preferred archiving platform for the diagnostic imaging industry. InSite One’s secure, scalable cloud infrastructure supports all PACS, data sources and modalities. Its patented tools along with expert services simplify the transition of medical information archiving to the cloud and address long-standing data management and retention challenges.

InSite One and Dell Capabilities

InSite One will give Dell a storage-as-a-service platform to archive digital content for companies in other industries on a subscription or pay-as-you-go basis. Dell’s strategy is to provide customers best-in-class, open and scalable solutions with deployment options that dramatically reduce the complexity and cost of storage and data management.

Dell and InSite One will provide healthcare customers with a secure, scalable, cloud-based, unified medical archive solution that supports HIPAA compliance and eliminates the silos of image information created when hospitals use multiple PACS. InSite One extends Dell’s Unified Clinical Archive solution and complements existing PACS environments. It combines vendor-neutral archive software with object-based storage to simplify archiving for IT staff and improves access to images for medical professionals. By moving archiving to the cloud, Dell can further reduce the overall cost of data storage and retention for hospitals, freeing up resources for critical business objectives and for improving the delivery of healthcare. InSite One’s data migration and recovery/backup services will also simplify the transition to the cloud for customers and ensure that information is managed safely and securely.

Terms of the transaction, which is subject to customary closing conditions, were not disclosed.
