It is estimated that medical imaging data is responsible for one-third of the total global storage market and is the equivalent of 1.2 billion average hard drives.
Data retention policies, coupled with the growth in the number of patients moving through the healthcare system (which is larger than it has ever been), is resulting in an unparalleled increase in data volumes. In order to manage the cost and complexity of this growing data, healthcare IT leaders will increasingly look for intelligent, vendor neutral data and storage management solutions.
The joint solution from BridgeHead and Forcare enables hospitals to efficiently and cost-effectively provide a data management infrastructure that enables the storing, protecting and sharing of all patient information, from medical images to clinical reports; scanned patient documents to back office files, across the healthcare landscape. The solution will have particular appeal to healthcare environments looking to facilitate data sharing across sites, organisations and/or regions, helping to provide a centrally-accessible and secured registry and repository and ensuring patient data is available to the people that need it, when they need it, for improved care delivery. The solution allows doctors, nurses, pharmacists, other health care providers and patients to appropriately access and securely share a patient's vital medical information electronically - improving the speed, quality, safety and cost of patient care.
