Dell to Acquire Medical Archiving Solutions Provider InSite One

Acquisition Adds Cloud-Based Medical Archiving, Storage and Disaster-Recovery Capabilities to Dell’s Portfolio

Acquisition Adds Cloud-Based Medical Archiving, Storage and Disaster-Recovery Capabilities to Dell’s Portfolio

Dell announced it would acquire cloud-based medical archiving firm InSite One, Inc. today. Wallingford, Connecticut based InSite One helps healthcare organizations simplify retention of healthcare data and reduce costs associated with long-term data storage and migration. The company also helps address the lack of image sharing capabilities between medical professionals in the diagnosis and treatment of disease.

Government and industry retention requirements, new modalities and the increasing resolution of medical images are creating unprecedented demand for storage among healthcare organizations. According to ESG Research, medical image data in North America is projected to grow more than 35 percent annually to reach nearly 2.6 million terabytes by 2014. The potential proliferation of disconnected information repositories presents an additional challenge.

The combination of InSite One’s cloud-based, vendor-neutral archive software and storage services with Dell’s Unified Clinical Archive solution will simplify data retention and let medical professionals access and share images regardless of the technology employed.

The acquisition will give Dell a storage-as-a-service platform to archive digital content for companies in other industries on a subscription or pay-as-you-go basis. Dell and InSite One will provide healthcare customers with a secure, scalable, cloud-based, unified medical archive solution that supports HIPAA compliance and eliminates the silos of image information created when hospitals use multiple PACS.

“Our customers have told us that managing the growing demands of both digital images and patient records is one of their greatest concerns,” said James Coffin, Ph.D., vice president of Dell Healthcare and Life Sciences. “We are dramatically simplifying archiving and retention of clinical data, both medical images and electronic medical records. This will allow our customers to improve care and support medical innovation through the efficient use of IT, and we’re doing it in a way that actually simplifies access to the information when it’s needed by clinicians.”

Terms of the transaction were not disclosed.

Earlier this month Dell agreed to acquire Compellent Technologies, a provider of highly-virtualized storage solutions that help organizations manage and move data, after failing in its efforts to acquire storage provider 3PAR despite a $1.8 bid this past summer.
