Medical imaging archive

Faster data access improves patient outcomes

Medical Imaging Archive

Accelerate time-to-diagnosis while lowering costs

Medical imaging studies (PACS and Vendor Neutral Archives) make up 70% of all data stored by healthcare organizations. Mandates require organizations to keep data an average of seven years, further straining IT infrastructure. Less than 10% of images are retrieved after 60 days, however, they still need to be online 24x7.

Scality offers safe, fast, always-on access to critical data for long-term retention. Compliance with HIPAA and protections from nefarious attacks are built-in. You'll gain worry-free, lower-cost storage capacity upwards of hundreds of petabytes.

  • “Today our data archive is unified, secure, and easily accessible. Researchers can now analyze older data sets more readily to support their work toward personalized medicine, and doctors can view older, point-in-time patient data to make better diagnoses.”
