Enabling Picture Archiving Communications Systems with EMC Automated Networked Storage Solutions
This white paper describes EMC Automated Networked Storage solutions in the context of Picture Archiving and Communications Systems (PACS). Emphasis is placed on EMC's unique ability to respond to demanding performance, efficiency, and scalability requirements as PACS transitions into the complete Electronic Patient Record (EPR). To increase clinical staff productivity, patient information within the healthcare organization needs to be online and immediately accessible to be of value in clinical decision-making. With EMC Centera content addressed storage, EMC offers an affordable solution to healthcare organizations seeking to place entire patient histories online.
Consolidation strategies across the healthcare organization also are described, including PACS, Radiology and Hospital Information Systems, Clinical Information Systems, Billing, and other departmental data storage networks centralized to an integrated, automated, online EPR solution. The paper also discusses the value of networking towards advancing the core goals of PACS: to control medical imaging costs, improve patient care, and integrate the healthcare enterprise.
