Digital Medics GmbH Answers the Demands of Its Distributed Medical Imaging Solution With IBM Technology
Headquartered in Dortmund, Germany, Digital Medics GmbH develops innovative solutions in the field of medical image processing and visualization for medical imaging. Digital Medics created an end-to-end high-resolution medical imaging system, which is a major advancement on current solutions that can only handle scaled-down versions of large data sets. The new solution called for a scalable IT infrastructure that could cope with the increased demand in storage and processing power. They chose IBM to overcome these challenges. Digital Medics and IBM created an elastic private cloud, which can be easily scaled to handle very high peaks in workload. The IBM infrastructure contributes to impressive cost savings for clinicians, with one hospital client estimating savings of up to 300,000 EURO a year.
