Migratek Announces New PACS Data Migration Projects

Houston, TX -- December 06, 2005 -- Migratek, the leader in Rapid PACS Data Migration, announces two, in progress, migration projects.

A migration project is currently underway at Meridian Regional Imaging in Mundelein, Illinois to migrate over 100,000 studies from a DR Systems PACS to a Merge-eMed Matrix PACS. In this case the Migratek dicomBLAST™ appliance has been configured to read over 1000 CD’s, and perform a patient demographic information transformation to update all of the studies to include a common format medical record number.

“Our timeline for the PACS implementation was very compressed so we needed a migration solution that could handle the migration as fast as possible. Additionally, we needed a solution to automate the Medical Record Update to eliminate the need for the staff to manually update over 100,000 studies. We chose Migratek because they were able to meet our requirements in both areas. We are very happy with the service that Migratek has provided.” said Larry Ranahan, CEO of Meridian Regional Imaging,

In another project, Migratek’s Rapid Migration Services are being used to perform a Kodak (Cemax-Icon) to Emageon migration of 16TB of data, stored on 220 DLT tapes. When the project is complete over 650,000 studies will be migrated. Migratek was selected because of their expert knowledge of the migration requirements and because the customer needed to quickly perform the migration in order to retire their legacy system and discontinue costly support payments. The exceptionally high transfer rate that can be achieved using Migratek’s dicomBLAST™ Appliance was a key factor in the selection of Migratek for this project.
