With the new Data Center, the medical imaging tests from 31 interconnected hospitals are now being permanently stored in cloud infrastructure. In this way:
- Direct online access to the certified medical staff is ensured.
- Storage problem is solved.
- Important reduction in the operational costs of the hospitals, both in equipment and in consumable supplies, is achieved.
- Medical imaging tests are available in every interconnected hospital via cloud, without the need for extra filing.
The new Data Center installed in a building provided by the University of Crete, is interconnected via optic fibers with 31 hospitals, in 8 regions across the country. The medical imaging tests of the interconnected hospitals are collected and stored automatically via a specialized archiving system for large scale imaging data (HARMONI). Access is allowed only to authorized medical and nursing staff via the local PACS (Picture Archiving and Communication Systems), thus ensuring the safety of the content over time.
