Securely storing and archiving healthcare data is a fundamental requirement, however with many different data types and possible approaches,
designing optimum solutions requires a in-depth understanding
of the clinical needs and a high level of expertise in the technology. Reliability is critical as immediate access is often required to a range of data from patient records to MRI scans and reports.
Centriq designs, deploys and supports storage solutions for critical healthcare data that support and improve patient care and clinical workflow.
Healthcare-wide data storage solutions
- Fast access/short-term and slower access/long term storage
- High availability systems
- Virtualised solutions
- Radiology, Radiotherapy and non-Radiology solutions
- Web-based access such as PACS IW
- Secure, resilient archives
- Mirrored solutions, auto-failover
- Disaster recovery and multiple levels of storage
Centriq has wide ranging experience of many storage technologies including SAN, NAS and hosted data storage solutions. Virtualised storage and archive solutions are offering significant advantages in terms of efficiency,
resilience and fail-over protection and Centriq has experience designing and implementing these in demanding healthcare institutions.
An in-depth knowledge of Mirroring, Auto fail-over, DICOM based solutions, 10Gbit networks,
fibre channel and iSCSI technology means we are well placed to offer the best, cost
effective solutions. Working closely with key vendors such as Dell, EMC,
HP and VMware ensures we are versed in the latest technologies and aware of potential issues such as split brain/double header, so we can select the
Design and Independence
Centriq's independence and experience means we first listen carefully to the client's requirements, understand the issues and we can then brief them on the latest technology which could suit their needs.
We then design optimum solutions selecting the best mix of technology and cost from a number of key vendors to ensure all the requirements are met. From small clinics to complete new build hospitals,
we build and support leading edge healthcare storage and archive solutions.
Integration with our clients' existing IT networks is a fundamental part of the design and deployment. Centrq's IT networking experience is invaluable in designing storage and archive solutions to ensure
complete, smooth integration from large scale enterprises to small clinics' systems. We also work with data migration from existing and legacy systems to offer a full service solution, taking
responsibility for the successful competition of the project. Centriq can
also provide proactive monitoring services continuously monitor performance and aid preventative maintenance of healthcare storage and archive solutions.
Some example projects for storage and archiving include the Sports Surgery Clinic in Dublin, The Beatson Cancer centre in Glasgow and an imaging centre in Harley Street London.
