Bridgehead Software, Inc., Woburn, Mass. and Dell, Inc., Round Rock, Texas, have launched a Medical Archive solution, offering hospitals a way to store their medical and administrative data in a centralized repository within an enterprise storage environment. The companies say the product creates a “holistic and fully interoperable” enterprise solution for hospitals looking to take control of their digital patient and administrative information. It is aimed at allowing hospitals to cope with the upsurge in healthcare data resulting primarily from the increasing volume of medical images as well as the adoption of the electronic medical records and the move to a paperless environment.

According to BridgeHead, the Medical Archive integrates the data from disparate clinical and administrative systems into a central, scalable repository that wholly understands healthcare data types and standards. It maintains this makes interoperability easier across hospital applications while simplifying the protection and security of digital information. Furthermore, hospitals can reduce the data management burden in terms of both resource and cost, according to the company. The underlying technology for the joint solution consists BH MediStore and BH OfficeStore from BridgeHead and the DX6000 Object Storage Platform from Dell.
