AT&T's Medical Imaging and Information management service is a pay as you go, cloud based solution. It provides a secure and reliable way of accessing, viewing, sharing and storing medical images from PACS.
It is a centralized solution that runs on AT&T's Synaptic Storage as a Service, which offers great flexibility and scalability to grow your archive as needed.
Your medical images and patient information are strongly encrypted, and the customer defined data management allows you to control the life-cycle (retention, access and deletion). Data is compressed based on American College of Radiology (ACR) standards and encrypted prior to transit from the facility. The compression of the data sets allows for faster transmission to the data-center. The encryption secures the data in transit regardless of mode of transmission - public or private.
Information Life-cycle Management (ILM) allows customers to set policies on data retention and data deletion. New HL7 order messages sent from a requesting location to the data center are processed by a synonym list to determine relevant priors that will be sent from the data center to the local cache at the requesting location. This process is known as pre-fetching.

This is not the only medical imaging solution offered by AT&T. In 2011 they partnered with Accenture and launched a new medical imaging solution that will enhance the capabilities of health professionals and radiologists to electronically share, review and store medical images, such as X-rays and CT or MRI scans, through AT&T technologies.
The Accenture Medical Imaging Solution can help medical professionals review patient images almost instantly, allow radiologists to see more patients and improve long-term technology costs and profitability. The solution can also enable national hospital networks to centrally manage medical images and collaborate efficiently with other institutions, physicians and radiologists.
The Accenture Medical Imaging Solution will be offered to U.S. hospitals and support the following capabilities:
- Workflow Analysis and Enablement – The Accenture benefit assessment and optimization analysis is a process that helps hospitals and other care providers connected by this solution to share their capacity for storing medical images and information. The offer includes features that can help hospitals efficiently manage radiology services.
- Teleradiology Exchange – The Accenture exchange will help to match supply and demand of radiology facilities and services. This can provide community-based hospitals with access to radiology services from medical centers, enabled by AT&T’s network and cloud hosting capabilities.
- Long-Term Image Management – The AT&T Medical Imaging and Information Management solution, a vendor-neutral, cloud-based service, helps providers to store, access, view and share patient medical images from virtually anywhere over a highly-secure infrastructure. The pay-as-you-go storage pricing helps providers to store medical images easily and avoid costly capital investment in storage infrastructure.
Medical imaging management is one of the health industry’s biggest challenges, and providers increasingly are turning to cloud-based solutions. Roughly 73 percent of healthcare organizations plan to shift imaging data storage to the cloud, in some capacity, while 32 percent actively use some form of cloud solutions today, according to an Accenture study. The shift from analog to digital images has resulted in exponential growth in the amount of data that must be stored.
