Managing Medical Image Data
Continued growth in medical image data placed an increasing strain on Rockford memorial Hospital's - nationally ranked for quality patient care - tape archiving system. What’s more, the tape-based system stored only a single copy of each medical image, escalating concerns about the hospital’s ability to recover information in the event of a disaster.
The hospital system needed a solution for storing medical images that could address security, privacy and disaster recovery requirements, while keeping costs manageable and system performance high. This case study demonstrates how Rockford Health was able to provide their care givers with ready access to patient data while safely archiving medical images and protecting them offsite in the event of a disaster.
