The Texas Regional Medical Center (TRMC) in the US has deployed Iron Mountain’s vendor neutral archive (VNA) and cloud storage solution to manage its CT scans, MRIs, X-rays and other diagnostic imaging equipment.
The archiving platform will help TRMC address its medical imaging data growth; it will also protect its records in the event of disaster by moving the information offsite. The solution is expected to help the Dallas-based hospital lower overall medical data storage costs and provide staff at the facility with access to images.
Texas Regional Medical Center CIO Rob McDonald said: "Our technology investments must provide efficiency and cost-savings, solving our current and future needs while also helping to ensure a higher quality of patient care. Iron Mountain fits perfectly as a partner with the capability and expertise to help us bridge the gap between now and the future.
"Their solution solves our storage and compliance needs, while ensuring we have the most cost-effective and efficient solution that frees up our staff to focus on patient care."
The new tool will help TRMC to minimise the cost of managing the data and meet Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) compliance requirements for disaster recovery and business continuity.
