HIPAA-compliant DICOM storage system provides cost-effective and secure archival storage of medical images, patient data and business files
CHICAGO, Nov. 30 /PRNewswire/ -- RSNA 2008 -- ProStor Systems, the leading developer of removable disk storage systems, will unveil its ProStor InfiniVault(R)-DICOM storage system to the healthcare community at this fall's RSNA 2008 Conference in Chicago, from Nov. 30 to Dec. 5. ProStor will showcase ProStor InfiniVault-DICOM with their partner, Rorke Data, in Rorke Booth #7513.
ProStor InfiniVault-DICOM is an intelligent long-term storage solution that addresses the need for expanded storage capacity in organizations that are creating an increasing number of images and retaining them for longer periods of time. The system is also ideal for replacing obsolete deep archive technologies including tape and optical storage. In addition to DICOM images, ProStor InfiniVault-DICOM stores and properly retains electronic medical records and business files. The scalable and affordable system manages DICOM objects over the network for modalities, RIS, HIS and PACS systems. Patients, doctors, technicians and healthcare administrators alike benefit from this cost-effective system that easily drops into existing environments with DICOM 3.0 conformance and HIPAA compliance.
Unlike other disk-based storage systems, ProStor InfiniVault-DICOM integrates industry leading RDX(R) removable disk cartridges to provide the performance of online storage with the economics of offline storage. The system simplifies the management of data by enabling secure local and remote access to images, automatically making multiple copies of data for offsite archival and disaster recovery. ProStor InfiniVault-DICOM also automates data retention with HIPAA compliance, including the disposition of images and data.
The ProStor InfiniVault-DICOM Model 100 System is capable of managing more than 1 billion studies in DICOM format. Each 500 GB removable disk cartridge employed by ProStor InfiniVault can store 500 multi-slice CT scans, 2,500 MRIs or 10,000 X-rays at a time. With up to 100 RDX cartridges online and an infinite number offline, ProStor InfiniVault-DICOM can manage all DICOM image and file needs of an organization.
"We're pleased to partner with ProStor to provide to the healthcare community the best archive storage for CT scans, MRIs, digitized X-rays and EMR files," said Joe Rorke, vice president of marketing and business development of Rorke Data. "We chose ProStor InfiniVault-DICOM because it is a scalable, secure and affordable solution for PACS DICOM image archiving and can also be used for the storage of HIS, RIS, patient records and business data."
Buzz Walker, vice president of marketing for ProStor Systems, agreed, "Imaging labs, regional clinics and hospitals looking for a DICOM-compliant system to address their growing capacity needs will find that ProStor InfiniVault-DICOM is a superior cost-effective alternative to traditional disk, tape or optical archive solutions and provides protection from technology obsolescence and migration."
Attendees who stop by the Rorke booth will get the chance to win a 42" LCD HDTV and view a demo of the new product.
