Dell and Siemens Healthcare Enable Pomona Valley Hospital Medical Center to Meet Growing Demand for 3D Mammography

Pomona Valley (Calif.) Hospital Medical Center (PVHMC) has selected Dell and Siemens Healthcare to provide diagnostic image archiving and sharing services to address long-term data storage needs and reduce the complexity of managing medical images. The move provides the hospital with a scalable and cost-effective storage and archival strategy for its new 3D breast imaging services. PVHMC will be using the archiving solution not just for 3D breast images but also for all other images, including cardiac, orthopedic and oncology clinical data.

Siemens Image Sharing & Archiving (ISA) solution, supported by Dell, provides a cloud-based, vendor-neutral image archive for storing and sharing radiology images and related clinical data. Siemens has incorporated Dell’s clinical data management software into its ISA, and the Dell Cloud Clinical Archive provides redundant archiving support for Siemens Healthcare Computing Center.

PVHMC, a 453-bed, acute-care hospital serving eastern Los Angeles and western San Bernardino counties, determined last year to make 3D breast imaging with tomosynthesis available “to every woman, every time.” Using 3D images, breast tomosynthesis allows radiologists a new way to see the size, shape and location of irregularities, which can potentially help them detect small tumors. However, with data storage needs up to 20 times higher than traditional full-field digital mammography (FFDM), tomosynthesis is creating new challenges for mammography providers around data management and long-term storage.

The Dell-Siemens solution allows for rapid scalability without the overhead of maintaining and upgrading an ever-expanding storage infrastructure. It offers a reliable disaster recovery strategy with a pay-per-study pricing model, leading to significant cost-savings and risk mitigation long term.

The Dell Cloud Clinical Archive is now managing more than 78 million clinical studies, more than 5.4 billion imaging objects and supporting more than 800 clinical sites in one of the world’s largest cloud-based, vendor-neutral medical image archives. For more information, visit www.dell.com/UnifiedClinicalArchive.

Siemens ISA replicates imaging data in three separate locations, including the Siemens Healthcare Computing Center (HCC) a leading cloud service that processes more than 238 million daily healthcare transactions and that hosts more than 4,300 servers. Image data can be accessed by DICOM query within the enterprise or by authorized external users via common industry integration profiles. More information about ISA is available at www.usa.siemens.com/ISA.

“The Dell-Siemens solution is a much more efficient way to manage clinical data going forward,” said Kent Hoyos, PVHMC’s chief information officer. “By moving our data center from the hospital’s basement to the cloud, we will realize significant long-term cost savings while continuing to offer state-of-the-art diagnostic services for not just our 3D mammography images but for all of our patients’ images.”

“Breast tomosynthesis is going to revolutionize mammography screening and, more importantly, it’s going to save lives,” said Johnson Lightfoote, M.D., medical director of Radiology at PVHMC. “Partnering with Dell and Siemens will allow PVHMC’s radiologists and support staff to focus solely on the woman and her 3D breast images and not concern ourselves with the storage of those images. This partnership assures us that the images stored in the cloud will be readily available when needed.”

“Healthcare providers shouldn’t have to be experts in data storage and management,” said James Coffin, Ph.D., vice president and general manager of Dell Healthcare and Life Sciences. “With Dell and Siemens, providers such as Pomona Valley Hospital Medical Center can focus on what they do best while allowing trusted partners to manage their ongoing data center needs.”

The world is at a tipping point where the technology, the device and global adoption are converging to such a point that we will see an explosion of a world where smartphone devices not only allow us to talk to each other, but allow for communication between everything – serving as a central hub from which we control our world – MediaTek is at the heart of both driving this and allowing the markets to drive this reality forward themselves. The next wave of consumer gadgets is here – smart, connected, and small. If your ambitions are big, so are ours. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Jack Hu, D...
17th Cloud Expo, taking place Nov 3-5, 2015, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA, will feature technical sessions from a rock star conference faculty and the leading industry players in the world. Cloud computing is now being embraced by a majority of enterprises of all sizes. Yesterday's debate about public vs. private has transformed into the reality of hybrid cloud: a recent survey shows that 74% of enterprises have a hybrid cloud strategy. Meanwhile, 94% of enterprises are using some form of XaaS – software, platform, and infrastructure as a service.
The recent trends like cloud computing, social, mobile and Internet of Things are forcing enterprises to modernize in order to compete in the competitive globalized markets. However, enterprises are approaching newer technologies with a more silo-ed way, gaining only sub optimal benefits. The Modern Enterprise model is presented as a newer way to think of enterprise IT, which takes a more holistic approach to embracing modern technologies.
The true value of the Internet of Things (IoT) lies not just in the data, but through the services that protect the data, perform the analysis and present findings in a usable way. With many IoT elements rooted in traditional IT components, Big Data and IoT isn’t just a play for enterprise. In fact, the IoT presents SMBs with the prospect of launching entirely new activities and exploring innovative areas. CompTIA research identifies several areas where IoT is expected to have the greatest impact.
There's no doubt that the Internet of Things is driving the next wave of innovation. Google has spent billions over the past few months vacuuming up companies that specialize in smart appliances and machine learning. Already, Philips light bulbs, Audi automobiles, and Samsung washers and dryers can communicate with and be controlled from mobile devices. To take advantage of the opportunities the Internet of Things brings to your business, you'll want to start preparing now.
P2P RTC will impact the landscape of communications, shifting from traditional telephony style communications models to OTT (Over-The-Top) cloud assisted & PaaS (Platform as a Service) communication services. The P2P shift will impact many areas of our lives, from mobile communication, human interactive web services, RTC and telephony infrastructure, user federation, security and privacy implications, business costs, and scalability. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Robin Raymond, Chief Architect at Hookflash, will walk through the shifting landscape of traditional telephone and voice services ...
Explosive growth in connected devices. Enormous amounts of data for collection and analysis. Critical use of data for split-second decision making and actionable information.

We’re entering a new era of computing technology that many are calling the Internet of Things (IoT). Machine to machine, machine to infrastructure, machine to environment, the Internet of Everything, the Internet of Intelligent Things, intelligent systems – call it what you want, but it’s happening, and its potential is huge. IoT is comprised of smart machines interacting and communicating with other machines, objects, environments and infrastructures. As a result, huge volumes of data are being generated, and that data is being processed into useful actions that can “command and control” thi...
