Dell will provide two hospitals a system to help it manage the more than 233,000 medical images the hospitals generate per year, the company announced Monday.

Centegra will store images long-term in Dell’s cloud clinical archive and maintain five years' worth of images on-site for access.

The cloud archive stores two copies of every image at geographically separate locations.

“The ever-growing volume of clinical imaging procedures is demanding more storage on multiple systems, and hospitals require technology solutions that can do more than simply store electronic patient data,“ said James Coffin, Dell vice president and general manager of healthcare and life sciences.

Dell said Centegra, an Illinois-based two-hospital system with several clinics, needed to consolidate existing picture archiving and communications systems for cardiology and radiology and wanted to add hardware to meet growing storage capacity demands.

Dell’s cloud clinical archive manages more than 78 million clinical studies and more than 5.4 billion diagnostic imaging objects, and supports more than 800 clinical sites in its cloud-based, vendor-neutral medical image archive.
