Unified Clinical Archive

The Dell Unified Clinical Archive (UCA) offers intelligent, scalable and affordable storage and facilitates clinical collaboration

The capacity required to store medical image is increasing, as is the demand for accessing, sharing and protecting these images. To further complicate matters, today’s medical archiving systems are inefficient and lack scalability and interoperability. Protecting patient privacy and controlling costs are crucial. The Dell Unified Clinical Archive (UCA) addresses these challenges with affordable, efficient and scalable storage that protects privacy and facilitates sharing and integration.

The Dell UCA integrates with leading PACS systems. If you are a PACS vendor, our enterprise solutions are found here.

This customized solution has three components. First, the vendor-neutral Clinical Data Management layer aggregates patient data from all PACS, HIS and specialized imaging applications. It standardizes the various proprietary formats and allows you to consolidate a variety of clinical data. This eliminates proprietary silos and the need for expensive data migrations that disrupt clinical workflow. We offer software from multiple VNA partners to best meet your needs.

The Clinical Archival layer features on-premise and cloud archiving options that can be used independently or as a hybrid. Adding the cloud option (Dell Cloud Clinical Archive: DCCA) ensures business continuity, disaster recovery and instant scalability, with a one-time per-study fee that tracks with your workload and revenue stream.

Finally, the Clinical Collaboration Portal layer allows easy access, secure sharing and integration of clinical data across a variety of platforms in a patient-centric repository. This facilitates both image integration in electronic medical records and image sharing through a Health Information Exchange (HIE).

The Dell Unified Clinical Archive is ISO 13485:2003 certified. In the 2013 KLAS Performance Study1, “Image Archive 2013: Finding Out What is in Store for VNA”, the Dell Unified Clinical Archive earned the highest overall performance score among vendor-neutral archive companies. Dell also earned the KLAS 2013 Category Leader award for VNA/Image Archive2 and the Frost and Sullivan 2012 North American Company of the Year Award in Enterprise Imaging Informatics3.
