The Problem

Healthcare applications are generating digital content in increasing amounts. X-rays, CAT scans and other vital patient records are often required to be available not only at one location, but now globally. With the HIPAA statute coming into effect, requirements for protecting patient records and privacy are necessitating the need for effective storage solutions which provide an additional layer of tamper-proof functionality.

The Solution

DISC storage systems allow medical institutions to archive a patient’s entire medical history by using one of the most reliable storage technologies ever created. With NAS and SAN connectivity options, multi-terabyte storage archives are made available anywhere across the globe. Optional Write Once Read Many (WORM) recording technology protects patient information against unauthorized tampering.

    • Store high-resolution, digital files
    • Access to a patient’s entire medical history    
    • Centralized medical record repository    
    • Write Once Read Many (WORM) recording option
    • Satisfy HIPAA requirements for patient record
privacy and accessibility
