BridgeHead Tool Unifies PACS Data

WOBURN, Mass. -- BridgeHead Software is launching its new PACStore archiving product to help healthcare organizations reduce the accelerating storage hardware and management burden imposed by the long term retention and protection of PACS (Picture Archiving and Communications Systems) medical image data.

The new product also effectively unifies PACS data by enabling clinicians to search across stored medical images from different proprietary PACS systems using a search facility based on the DICOM (Digital Imaging and Communications in Medicine) standard used by most PACS vendors.

With PACS image studies getting bigger and more sophisticated, there’s mounting pressure on the resources required to store and protect the underlying data. Our PACStore software brings relief by making sure storage resources are used in the most optimal way,” said Charles Mallio, Director of Business Development - Healthcare Sector, for BridgeHead Software which is a specialist in enterprise data backup and archiving. BridgeHead’s Enterprise Data Backup system is already in common use in over 350 hospitals, some of which are already amongst the early adopters of PACStore.
