CloudWave enables hospitals and healthcare companies to transfer essential IT services such as medical imaging to the multi-cloud public, hybrid, and private safe, performant, and highly available platforms.

FREMONT, CA: CloudWave, a healthcare cloud and managed services provider, and Vital Images, a Canon Group Company and the leader in enterprise imaging solutions in the healthcare market have announced a partnership to provide secure, cloud-based enterprise imaging solutions to healthcare.

Mark Middleton, Vice President of Cloud Services at CloudWave, comments, “Our vision for CloudWave’sOpSus Cloud has always been focused on providing solutions that hospitals need to deliver the best care possible to their communities.  Working with Vital Images, we are solving for the imaging challenges faced by healthcare organizations today by offering interoperability, reduced complexity, and reliable systems performance.  The Vital Enterprise Imaging service gives hospitals control over their imaging platform, with operations and management delivered from the cloud to meet stringent service level agreements.”

CloudWave enables hospitals and healthcare companies to transfer essential IT services such as medical imaging to the multi-cloud public, hybrid, and private safe, performant, and highly available platforms. With seamless, fully managed platforms that use Edge Cloud, Private Cloud, and Public Cloud resources, CloudWave’sOpSus Healthcare Cloud runs both old healthcare applications and native SaaS apps.

Enterprise imaging solutions from Vital are designed to access, examine, analyze, and share data across applications and departments. The Vitrea Organization Imaging system from Vital focuses on interoperability, allowing data to be accessed across the enterprise at any time, from any location, and in any standardized format.

CloudWave and Vital will collaborate to offer Enterprise Imaging as a cloud-based service, with choices for fully-hosted, multi-cloud, and local cloud edge installations and OpSus Healthcare Cloud-based systems management, replication disaster recovery, and data security.

“Diagnostic real-time patient centric applications such as imaging services are much different than the traditional applications in the cloud,” says Larry Sitka, VP and CSIO at Vital Images. “Latency of 30ms matters to the physicians that use our applications.” Sitka explains that these highly skilled and trained physicians are able to capture an image in their brain that exemplifies an anomaly of some sort–anomaly detection. If latency or a frameskip occurs, these physicians are unable to create clear 3D images to detect anomalies. “Together, with CloudWave, we have identified these sync challenges and have solved this problem as healthcare organizations go to the cloud and enable their physicians,” continues Sitka.

“Partnering with CloudWave meant added security and expertise, but most importantly, a cloud solution that comes with real people. Not only are they able to monitor the solution, but they also have the capacity to fix workflow issues, altogether resulting in better patient care and a better physician experience,” says Sitka.

“We built our OpSus Cloud Services to be the healthcare cloud delivered by healthcare people,” says Jim Fitzgerald, Chief Strategy Officer, and CloudWave founder. “Vital’s leading enterprise imaging solution, combined with CloudWave’s expert federation and delivery, will provide the cost-effective tool hospitals need to store, analyze, and share medical images.”
