Vendor Neutral Archive Solutions – A Better Way to Archive, Manage and Deliver Your Imaging Data

Conserus™ Image Repository is a vendor neutral archive solution that provides a better way to archive, manage and deliver your imaging data without requiring a lot of resources and without locking you into a specific PACS system. We want you to be able to leverage and choose whichever workflow makes sense for radiology, cardiology and the other 'ology departments at your organization, so we’ve built a storage platform that has scalable, open architecture with off-the-shelf hardware. We also apply a standards-based approach to DICOM imaging to create true neutrality between disparate systems.

Designed to reduce the complexity of integrations and interfaces across the enterprise, it helps to simplify enterprise-wide access to imaging information and facilitates enhanced clinical collaborations. With a single point of distribution and Electronic Medical Record (EMR) integration for imaging data, including a zero footprint viewer, you gain a single view of patient image data across the enterprise through reconciliation of patient records across multiple ordering systems. Ultimately, with the evolution of healthcare collaboration as a critical element of quality patient care, Conserus Image Repository enables image data sharing between disparate healthcare enterprises or systems, where such sharing is legally permitted.

Though access and information sharing is a key benefit of Conserus Image Repository, these benefits should not overshadow the obvious financial benefits. This vendor neutral archive solutions reduces the escalating, image management related expenditures including hardware and operating costs through system consolidation:

  • Centralized management of enterprise medical imaging data, optimizing the number of individual systems that need to be maintained
  • Economies of scale by investing in a single larger storage platform for all image data
  • Savings from never needing to migrate PACS data again

Conserus Image Repository System Dashboard

System DashboardSystem Dashboard is a native application of Conserus Image Repository. It helps to provide more visibility and control of the Conserus Image Repository system through a remotely accessible web-based medical imaging archiving solution dashboard, enabling hospital administrators to pro-actively monitor the status of system components in four key areas to help increase user confidence and adoption via better system health:

  • Connectivity & Bandwidth
  • Process & Interface Health
  • Archive Storage Capacity
  • Cache Storage Capacity

Conserus Image Repository Retention Management™

Retention Management is a chargeable add-on feature of Conserus Image Repository that helps you to manage legal liability while enabling a reduction in radiology PACS storage costs. The add-on vendor neutral archive solutions removes data according to user-defined retention rules that reflect your retention policies. Retention Management helps facilitate the deletion of legacy radiology studies by allowing you, as a hospital administrator, to:

  • Create retention/purge rules that are in line with official hospital retention policies and that may be set per facility according to jurisdictional requirements
  • Help protect patient data for legal cases
  • Allows you to determine which studies to delete using multi-phase review and delete cycle
