Dell to Store Teaching Hospital's Clinical Images in Cloud; August Calhoun Comments - top government contractors - best government contracting event

Dell_LogoDell has won a contract to archive a 10-center teaching hospital’s clinical images in its cloud-based storage system, intending to help the healthcare organizations recover from disruptions.

Trinitas Regional Medical Center will store its more than 113,000 radiology and cardiology studies in Dell's unified clinical archive platform for on-site access, Dell said Wednesday.

The company built the archive to store two copies of every image at physically distant sites to support health information exchanges.

“As hospitals strive to improve care and meet ever-changing regulatory requirements, they shouldn't also have to be experts in data storage and management,“ said August Calhoun, Dell vice president and general manager of healthcare and life sciences.

Trinitas also intends to unify images with its electronic medical records system in an effort to comply with Stage 2 Meaningful Use requirements.

The hospital is based in central New Jersey and a member of Jersey Health Connect, a health information exchange covering 10 counties in the state.
