Laitek Project Profile #5: Novant Health

INSTITUTION TYPE:   Hospital System (13 hospitals)
LOCATION:   U. S. Southeast
Legacy PACS:   Siemens MagicStore PACS / Sun SAM-FS Archive
Target PACS:   McKesson HMI PACS
VOLUME:   2,700,000 Studies

Challenge:
Decommissioning Siemens PACS as soon as possible to alleviate costs and other resources demanded by the Siemens system.

Outcome:

  • Transferred more than 1 TB of data per day
  • LAITEK demonstrated flexibility in adjusting to the changing project needs, i.e. close monitoring and throttling of daily throughput avoided straining the archiving process, which required, at times, pauses and daily ‘storage health’ email updates from the Target PACS vendor.
  • LAITEK presented Novant Health with useful interfaces, clarity into the migration process, and distinctively rapid migration capabilities, completing migration in one-fifth of the time required for conventional migration.
  • Migrated 2.7 Million studies from Siemens PACS to McKesson PACS

Customer Comment:
“Your team has been great to work with during this process.   Angela has recommended your services to another project manager at Novant as well.  Also, if you need a reference, please feel free to have them contact Angela and I.  We will be more than happy to spread the good word.”

-Hu Smith, IT Project Manager
