BridgeHead and ClearDATA Offer Their Medical Archive in the Cloud

BridgeHead's Unique Capabilities Enable ClearDATA to Provide Medical Archive That Supports Both DICOM and Non-DICOM Data in the Cloud

WOBURN, MA and PHOENIX, AZ -- (Marketwire) -- 03/04/13 -- BridgeHead Software, the Healthcare Data Management company, today announced a partnership with ClearDATA Networks, the leading healthcare cloud computing platform and service provider, to bring comprehensive vendor neutral archive (VNA) and general Medical Archive services to the company's HealthDATA cloud solution. BridgeHead's unique capabilities to support DICOM and non-DICOM data will allow hospitals worldwide to store, protect and share both clinical and administrative data in the cloud.

"The partnership with BridgeHead is symbiotic as the company shares ClearDATA's dedicated focus on supporting the healthcare environment," said Darin Brannan, CEO of ClearDATA Networks. "BridgeHead's unique Healthcare Data Management (HDM) Solution allows hospitals to efficiently and effectively manage all of their data. This, combined with our expertise in delivering cloud solutions, enables us to collectively offer a comprehensive solution to our customers. In addition, we hope to leverage BridgeHead's significant presence in the healthcare market to increase cloud adoption by hospitals, clearly a priority for this unique collaboration."

The HealthDATA solution comprises an ultra-secure, HIPAA-compliant, highly reliable and scalable cloud computing platform and hosting services designed exclusively for the healthcare market. As part of the ClearDATA family, BridgeHead's Medical Archive, incorporating a Vendor Neutral Archive (VNA), provides an environment equipped to manage the full range of data within a hospital. From the clinical side this includes (but is not limited to) DICOM images from radiology departments or scanned patient information. Additionally, the solution manages more generic, unstructured file data such as emails, documents and spreadsheets found across the healthcare enterprise.

"ClearDATA occupies a unique position in the market as a healthcare-specific cloud provider. As a result, they recognize that healthcare has particular governance, compliance and data issues that need to be adhered to," said Tony Cotterill, chief product officer and founder of BridgeHead. "We look forward to working with ClearDATA to bring the critical capabilities of cloud-based Healthcare Data Management to hospitals."

Based on hardware from HP, a long-standing partner of both BridgeHead and ClearDATA, the new Medical Archive solution will offer a variety of options for healthcare organizations to archive clinical and administrative data in the cloud, depending on the specific level of service, availability and failover required by hospitals. For example, a customer can choose to simply store healthcare data in the cloud, or deploy a high availability gateway on site. BridgeHead's Healthcare Data Management (HDM) Solution is well suited for both of these applications.
