Scalable Storage and Disaster Recovery Infrastructure for Medical Images

4:30pm - 5:30pm Thursday, March 8
Las Vegas - Venetian Convention Center
Palazzo G

Description

Protecting patient images from disaster events, ransomware, and providing HIPAA compliant backup is an ongoing challenge when your image repositories are growing at 20-30% a year. Along with growth, a multi-site health services clinic and hospital in Nebraska and a multi-site radiology clinic in Texas have had to confront the problems of tornado alley, and national ransomware attacks. This session details how they solved these problems by first realizing they would not go away. The speakers will share their unstructured data protection and long term retention strategies. You’ll learn how business requirements are steering one organization to deploying cloud solutions to highly specific areas, while the other is moving rapidly to the cloud for all computing and storage requirements.

Learning Objectives: 

  • Classify unstructured data by type, importance to patient care, retention goals, and frequency of access requirements
  • Evaluate multiple options including cloud-based and non-cloud-based, as part of putting together a comprehensive solution
  • Compare approaches in terms of how they meet your organization's budget and service needs, and their ability to adapt to changing technology and unpredictable events
