Mach7 Technologies, a company specializing in innovative medical imaging data management solutions for healthcare providers, has announced the successful go-live of its Picture Archiving and Communications System (PACS) Modernization project for Sentara Healthcare.
The project is powered by Mach7’s Enterprise Imaging Platform (VNA) and Diagnostic Studio in conjunction with Client Outlook’s eUnity diagnostic viewer.
The project marks the first cloud-based deployment of the complete Mach7 solution at a customer site. The solution, which is a public cloud deployment utilizing the Microsoft Azure framework, covers more than two million images per year across the Sentara Healthcare network. In addition to storing data for Sentara’s radiology departments, the Mach7 VNA stores images and image data for their cardiology departments, which provides a greater degree of infrastructure consolidation and integration.
Trent Conwell, Sentara Healthcare’s IT Director, said, “As organizations are making decisions on how best to deliver IT infrastructure in a clinically and fiscally responsible way, it is imperative to evaluate each software vendor’s infrastructure capabilities. Sentara partnered with Mach7 to provide a standardized diagnostic imaging solution that provides the infrastructure flexibility that we needed. Moving to a centralized cloud infrastructure means the days of keeping up to seven copies of diagnostic studies are gone. All studies are centralized and available diagnostically to interpreting physicians across the Sentara enterprise.” Mike Lampron, CEO of Mach7 Technologies, said, “Mach7 is excited to announce the successful go-live of Sentara’s PACS Modernization project. Our vendor-neutral solution will give Sentara unparalleled flexibility and cost savings, with a foundation they will be able to build on for years to come. We are confident the joint Mach7-Client Outlook solution will meet the needs of their organization and we look forward to our continued partnership.”
