San Jose, Calif.-based Allied Telesis Inc., a global provider of secure IP/Ethernet switching solutions and a deployer of converged multi-play networks, and Wellington, Fla.-based Hosted PACS Solutions, an application service provider (ASP) of digital radiology software, announced a technology alliance offering managed cloud-based Picture Archiving and Communications Systems (PACS) services to enable the seamless and secure transfer and storage of bandwidth-intensive imaging and diagnostic studies. Leveraging its hospital-grade infrastructure, equipped with managed networking gear from Allied Telesis, Hosted PACS Solutions ensures the timely, reliable, and secure delivery of teleradiology information – across diverse geographies – to help healthcare organizations lower capital expenditures accrued, as compared with implementing a high-cost, complex onsite PACS system.
Hosted PACS Solutions works with the GE Healthcare Centricity PACS-IW Web-based software solution for all modalities and healthcare environments to help the continuum of healthcare professionals, from radiologists and referring physicians to authorized clinical users, increase their workflow efficiency. The Allied Telesis-Hosted PACS Solutions partnership marks the first-of-its-kind cloud-based PACS service, hosting this software platform.
Hosted PACS Solutions and Allied Telesis will offer a completely managed PACS solution, including network design, implementation, configuration, and access to Hosted PAC Solutions’ HIPAA compliant data centers, as well as maintenance, remote management and monitoring, and 24/7 support. By employing a managed PACS approach, healthcare organizations can focus on serving patients and complying with research needs instead of spending time and resources in on-site management of IT equipment and staff.
