BURLINGTON, Vt., June 1, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Two leaders in the healthcare IT industry have brought cloud storage and sophisticated routing capabilities to healthcare IT professionals, empowering them to own, share, and access their critical medical imaging data across their patients' continuum of care. Mach 7 Technologies (M7T, www.mach7t.com), a leading provider of enterprise clinical image management solutions, has signed an agreement with Logicalis, an international IT solutions and managed services provider (www.us.logicalis.com), to co-market offerings, vendor neutral archiving and cloud archiving solutions respectively, to the global healthcare IT market. With the new agreement, M7T expands the functionality of its Keystone Suite Enterprise Clinical Imaging Platform with Logicalis's Enterprise Cloud solution.
As a VNA partner, M7T helps healthcare enterprises worldwide resolve complex integration issues between PACS vendors, consolidate DICOM and non-DICOM image data, reduce the time it takes to bring new PACS live with an intelligent migration, and save money with the capabilities of Keystone Suite.
The partnership with Logicalis provides more flexible options for customers, allowing them to store their medical imaging data in a cloud infrastructure, while still having the routing and lifecycle management workflow from Keystone Suite.
The Logicalis Enterprise Cloud solution is a multi-tiered cloud infrastructure with SAS70-ii best management practices and HIPAA-compliant data handling, and is designed for complete redundancy. The solution is designed to deliver scalable enterprise-class computing and advanced enterprise services.

"Both M7T and Logicalis have experience in the challenges of managing medical images; together we can show healthcare systems how to lower costs and provide better patient care.
