Merge eFilm has completed the integration of its PACSbuilder technology with EMC's Centera content addressed storage. Quantum Diagnostic Imaging of Dallas will be the first to implement the integrated system. PACSbuilder is designed to optimize workflow throughout the healthcare enterprise, integrating database, image storage, and workflow capabilities. EMC's Centera supports archiving functions with a new software-driven storage architecture. The combination of PACSbuilder and Centera should provide an unprecedented amount of disk-based networked storage for rapid access to all types of radiological images, improving speed, performance, and efficiency, according to Merge eFilm.
