Royal Philips Electronics announced an agreement with the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) to provide disaster recovery services that are dedicated to VA users with Philips iSite. Managed and hosted by Philips, the VA disaster recovery services will provide automated backup of all Philips iSite Radiology image data.

“The  disaster recovery services add an advanced level of security for all VA clients and their patients, electronically protecting radiology image data in the VA’s secure environment,” said Matt Long, general manager of Healthcare Informatics, for Philips Medical Systems.

In the case of a total disaster where the iSite information at any VA site 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.
