Dell solution supports US forces
21 December 2012
The United States Navy Medical Logistics Command and the United States Army Integrated Clinical Systems PMO has chosen Dell to implement their Unified Clinical Archive (UCA) solution to a range of healthcare facilities.
The task was assigned as part of Dell’s Digital Imaging Network Picture Archiving Communications System III (DIN-PACS III) contract and the solution will be implemented in partnership with BRIT Systems and Acuo Technologies.
As a part of this $45 million task order, Dell and its partners will help the Army and Navy share Picture Archiving and Communications Systems (PACS) images between military bases and branches worldwide through an archive that will simplify the access and sharing of medical images for 49 hospitals.
Under this contract, Dell and its partners will provide the Army and Navy with an on-premise, vendor-neutral archiving system that will have a very positive impact on the quality of care for military families. This solution will give medical providers electronic access to patient imaging records in a timely and seamless manner that enables better coordination of patient care regardless of where the patient’s duty station might be and also addresses both healthcare and Department of Defence (DOD) security and continuity of operations requirements
This is a perfect example of the broad cross-section of solutions we offer to our government and military customers and with the continued organic and inorganic expansion of our services and solutions
vice president and general manager, Dell Federal “As mobile and diverse as the members of our nation’s military are and with the costs of healthcare booming, the federal government has more to gain from efficiency and reduced costs of healthcare than any other organisation in the world," said Troy West, vice president and general manager, Dell Federal. "With Deltek estimating DoD healthcare costs to have increased from $18 billion in 2001 to $40 billion today and the VA’s up from $20 billion to $40 billion in that time, our military needs more modern and innovative healthcare solutions to enable better and more flexible care,”
“This is a perfect example of the broad cross-section of solutions we offer to our government and military customers and with the continued organic and inorganic expansion of our services and solutions offering," he added,"we’ll continue to find ways to better serve these important customers.”
Dell’s UCA solution enables hospitals to simplify the management and sharing of medical images between disparate PACS used in radiology, cardiology, neurosurgery, endoscopy, mammography, digital pathology and a variety of other clinical specialties, and manage the proliferation of imaging data in patient care.
The cloud-based UCA solutions address the cost and access challenges of image data with a vendor-neutral archive, object-based storage and services that provide seamless integration between the leading PACS systems.
