The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) has selected Royal Philips' (Netherlands) iSite to provide disaster recovery services.

According to Phillips, iSite picture archiving and communications system (PACS) delivers medical images and reports to physicians throughout the hospital using iSyntax, a transmission technology. In addition, Phillips contends it will manage and host VA's disaster recovery services, providing automated backup of all Philips iSite radiology image data.

In the case of a disaster where the iSite information is lost, that institution's entire radiology electronic image data set can be restored from the VA Disaster Recovery site, with an initial restoration designed to begin within 96 hours, says the company.
