InSiteOne shows new data migration program, supports breast cancer detection
InSiteOne announced a disaster recovery data migration program at HIMSS07 in New Orleans that will provide easy, affordable data protection without tapping into capital dollars. This program allows healthcare clients without any data protection or older archive systems to take advantage of InSiteOne’s proven InDex Recovery technology solutions.  

Smaller organizations often struggle with the cost of data migration but InSiteOne’s new disaster recovery data migration program lets organizations take advantage of low cost migration and zero percent financing.
People are looking at outsourcing archiving to save money, said Johanna Schaefer, marketing communications. PACS has a cache but doesn’t look to the future, she said. InSiteOne doesn’t charge for equipment maintenance and upgrades and its offering are infinitely scalable, she said. “The more images stored, the most cost-effective we are.”

Beyond the inherent cost advantages of this program, users will also benefit from the interchangeable levels of service in the patented InDex solution. At the core of all services is InDex Recovery which features an on-site gateway with a single copy of the data off-site on spinning disk. This data is verified every 90 days for full integrity. Accessing the data incurs no charges for declared event, maintenance or technical support.

The company’s InDex is an efficient, pay-as-you-go service that includes both online and nearline image storage and access. InDex allows hospitals to leverage digital imaging technologies while reducing capital costs for equipment maintenance, storage and personnel. InDex's open architecture integrates with any DICOM-compliant PACS component as well as hospital networks and information systems. InDex provides on-demand access to images residing either locally or at a storage facility linked via the Internet or Virtual Private Network to a hospital's network.

“The real news is that we’re going beyond DICOM” with mammography, cardiology and CT, said Schaefer. Using a common interest file system (CIFS) lets users pull record together for archiving.

When InSiteOne was founded in 2001, it stored 35 million images. Today, the company stores more than 10 million studies and more than one billion images.

The company also showcased IndexWeb, a new, user-friendly web service for digital diagnostic imaging. The system lets users pull prior exams off hours to help with better workflow for the next day’s patient schedule.

InSiteOne also launched a special philanthropic program with their mammography clients in support of the American Breast Cancer Foundation’s Key To Life Breast Cancer Screening Assistance Program and breast cancer research.

For every mammogram archived with InSiteOne from facilities performing mammography, InSiteOne will contribute to the American Breast Cancer Foundation. The ultimate goal of this program, in addition to raising funds, is to increase awareness for the early detection of breast cancer. Each client and the patients they serve will be a contributor.
