RAPID DATA GROWTH IN Healthcare. Solved.

Data management, storage and cloud readiness for
medical imageS and other unstructured data.

Nowhere is data more critical than in healthcare. And it’s growing at ever-accelerating rates, currently 50% per year, growth that’s fueled by regulatory retention requirements, ever-improving medical imaging technology, the ubiquity of Electronic Health Records (EHR), enhanced treatment technologies, surveillance video and even aging populations.

SECURITY, SHARING AND SILOS

This data explosion in healthcare comes with a host of security and privacy concerns, limited flexibility, shadow IT and intense cost-savings pressure. Departmental PACS and storage silos make consistent data management, security and availability a huge challenge. Health Information Exchanges (HIEs) are still on the horizon, and hospitals are looking to public clouds for their services and remote and global access. 

ADDING VALUE

Having the right patient health information storage in place affects both individual patient care and institutional efficiency. Scality delivers, providing superior data management and storage that maintains the integrity of data and keeps it on-line and readily available, guaranteed. All that, and a low TCO. 

Technology’s PRESSURE ON  DIGITAL MEDICINE

EXPLOSIVE GROWTH, REGULATION & COMPLEXITY

DATA GROWTH

In 2016, US Hospitals managed one Exabyte of imaging data. That data is now growing at 50% per year.

MANAGING COSTS

Imaging costs amount to more than $100 billion per year. Currently 7.5-10% of total costs, imaging is one of the fastest growing components of medical costs.

DATA PRIVACY

Regulatory oversight is strong, with national and regional rules governing retention, availability, privacy and security. And for good reason: breaches are increasing every quarter; 4.39 million medical records were exposed in Q3 2018.

CLOUD INITIATIVES

Hospitals want the services and cost advantages of cloud computing & storage, but cloud, and its integration into the healthcare workflow, needs to be simple, secure and manageable.

VALUE OF DATA

The fact that health, wellbeing and even lives depend on these images is clear, but 80% of healthcare providers don’t yet have a data management strategy.

ACCESS IS CRITICAL

Uptime and 100% availability are critical to patient care and clinician satisfaction.

WHERE SCALITY FITS IN THE HEALTHCARE LANDSCAPE

DATA MANAGEMENT & STORAGE

Unstructured data (including images, videos, documents, data backups, logs, IoT data and more) is the fastest growing part of data overall; IDC estimates that it will amount to 160 Zettabytes by 2025.  Medical images – the data stored in radiology, cardiology, pathology, dermatology and other departmental PACS, makes up the greatest portion of a hospital’s unstructured data.  Keeping those images intact and available is paramount.  Scality does just that for our medium-to-large (250+ bed) hospitals, specialty groups & research university hospital customers.

Scality is a specialist in storing, protecting and managing massive amounts of unstructured data, both on-premises and in public clouds.

ENTERPRISE IMAGE MANAGEMENT

A patient-centric imaging infrastructure that manages imaging data from across the ‘ologies’, eliminating departmental silos.

VNA – Asset Management

25% of hospitals will purchase a VNA this year.

Genomic Archiving

Hospitals now acquiring sequencers for clinical usage.

Protection of Medical Records & Images

Target for EMR backup through leading solutions (Veeam, Commvault, Veritas NBU).
Long-term archiving for compliance & research analytics.
Protection of stored data from ransomware attacks.
