What would happen if your data centre was not available due to a flood, earthquake or electrical fire?
How quickly could you recover and be back to "business as normal"?
McKesson's Hosted Storage solution, powered by Iron Mountain, offers a fully managed service model that provides disaster recovery with archiving in a single solution and helps you:
Shift the cost and management of image archiving to an operating expense where the hardware and infrastructure footprint is reduced to a secure offsite location
Eliminate any ramp-up cost and hardware capital purchases associated with automated offsite backup and archival
Pay for what you use, when you use it (transparent pricing model 100% utilisation. No special licensing)
Eliminate capital purchase expenses for new storage, on-going administration costs, and hardware obsolescence
We offer experienced staffing options for key positions to support your picture archiving and communication systems (PACS) in situations where you may not have the resources or team experience to deliver on the critical project deadlines.
Our staff augmentation service allows your expert staff to be freed from routine duties during project implementations. McKesson experts fill your knowledge and resource gaps, including:
Radiology and Cardiology Administrators in situations where you may have lost the PACS administrator, where there are new systems to install, or extra resources are required for IT projects
Implementation Specialists to fill the knowledge and training gaps with new system integrations
Technical Field Service Managers to improve technical output, fill gaps in expertise during new system or integration activities
Qualified resources for staff shortages or ramp ups to new systems allowing your expert staff to be freed from routine duties
With the growth of today's replacement market for both RIS/PACS and cardiology vascular information systems (CVIS), facilities of all sizes require continued access to historical patient data in order to provide quality patient care. They cannot afford a disruption to information access nor afford the cost of running duplicate systems during a system replacement.
We are your single-source provider with the experience and knowledge to accurately, efficiently and quickly migrate all your patient images and corresponding data. Data migration presents numerous opportunities for a healthcare facility to:
- Bring disparate data from one or more legacy system(s) together into a single database/archive for efficient access and distribution
- Data cleansing to drive the continuity of care for patients with accurate and relative healthcare information
- Reduce overall administrative and operational costs incurred from running multiple solutions or maintaining older, unsupported hardware and software
- Utilise more cost-effective, scalable storage media that can grow with a facility's medical imaging business
- Simplify compliance to regulatory requirements such as HIPAA
McKesson has been performing data migrations since 2001 and has demonstrated experience with many PACS/CPACS having migrated data to and from virtually every major manufacturer in the market. We use a proven data migration methodology coupled with extensive data cleansing experience to manage the success of the entire migration project, including services, hardware and software.
