eMix Medical Info Exchange Built on VMware Virtualization Software


2/3/2011 11:25:16 AM

SAN DIEGO - Behind the data center infrastructure of eMix™, the leading cloud computing service for sharing medical imaging studies and reports, is an alliance between the largest independent PACS company and the world's leading virtualization and cloud infrastructure company.

In developing this new electronic medical imaging exchange service, the eMix technology team selected an infrastructure solution from VMware. The choice was based on VMware's ability to quickly deliver a comprehensive solution for cloud computing.

The result: Using VMware's comprehensive portfolio cloud computing technologies, eMix accelerated the reliable delivery of its medical exam-sharing service. eMix also achieved greater infrastructure flexibility and lowered its IT, energy and real estate costs.

eMix, a business venture incubated by DR Systems, enables rapid, secure sharing of images and reports between disparate institutions and physicians via the Internet. It can also facilitate associating patient images to electronic medical records (EMRs) and patients' personal health records (PHRs). This interoperable technology eliminates the need for the provider facility to burn CDs, print films, and fax reports.

VMware and eMix have a shared vision for cloud computing as the future of healthcare enterprise IT infrastructure. Cloud computing is a virtual IT infrastructure that combines the controls and security of today's data center with the agility and security required for eMix's exam-sharing innovation, at substantially lower costs.

"We are pleased to expand our partnership with eMix," said Frank Nydam, Director of Healthcare Solutions for VMware. "This business alliance is leveraging our industry-leading cloud infrastructure technologies to deliver the cloud platform for eMix - helping them achieve greater levels of reliability and agility in an environment with the highest possible requirements for data security and availability."
