The TeraStack® Solution helps medical companies reduce costs by an average of 97%

Medical applications and data size needs continue to grow at an exponential rate. Hie Electronics provides a secure and reliable way to store data, electronic medical records, images and video. Various types of medical records are being saved for the patient’s lifetime. These include but are not limited to general medical data storage, 3D images, MRIs, CAT Scans, X-rays, ECGs and patient test data. This type of data is getting larger in size and becoming more of a problem to store given current resources and capabilities. Long-term retention of this data is crucial to the care given to anyone requiring medical assistance as technologies and advancements in medicine are discovered in future years to come.

Another problem with the ever-expanding amount of data is the security and privacy issues that go along with managing this information for long periods of time. Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) requires that patient data be permanently stored in a retrievable manner.

Because electronic medical records must be kept for the lifetime of a patient, Hie Electronics uses Blu-ray technology to allow for this patient data to be kept for decades on a non-volatile media in a secure manner.

Medical applications can benefit from the TeraStack Solution and its many key attributes including high data integrity (50-100 years), lack of the need for multiple data migrations and ease of use.
