Nexsan and GE Healthcare IT to Provide Image Storage Systems for Hospitals

Nexsan, a provider of energy-efficient long-term storage systems, and GE Healthcare IT, a provider of healthcare information technology, have partnered to provide systems for capturing, processing, storing and archiving images in hospitals and other healthcare facilities.

As part of the agreement, GE Healthcare IT has certified Nexsan's green storage solutions with its Centricity PACS-IW imaging solution. PACS stands for Picture Archiving and Communication Systems, a storage and management system for high-resolution images. The certified Nexsan products include the company's SATA line of high-density storage solutions and Nexsan Assureon, a long-term archiving product.

The company said its Assureon is a secure, intelligent archive storage solution that combines patent-pending security features with high availability, scalability and performance into a single, fully integrated disk-based storage solution.

Philip Black, president and CEO of Nexsan, said: "When used with the secure, scalable and high-performance Nexsan Assureon, this solution gives providers fast access to critical information that can meaningfully improve patient care."
