MessageSolution showcases medical image archiving for a unified healthcare archiving, eDiscovery and storage
management solution, enhancing its model of controlled self-serve eDiscovery, mitigated legal risk, solution reliability

Chicago, IL (April 13, 2015) and Silicon Valley, CA – MessageSolution, an industry leader in enterprise-class
archiving and eDiscovery, will showcase its MessageSolution Medical Image Archive, its VNA solution, the most
recent addition to its award-winning HIPAA-compliance enterprise archiving eDiscovery platform at HIMSS 2015.
“The integration with Microsoft SharePoint and Azure Cloud Storage enables our VNA medical image archiving
system to be flexibly available both on-premise and in the cloud to significantly reduce storage costs and to
streamline the PACS upgrade process,” states MessageSolution Global Marketing Strategist Kevin McInerney. “The
addition of Medical Image Archive to MessageSolution’s already robust enterprise information archiving and
eDiscovery platform is a game-changer that will significantly improve interoperability for healthcare organizations.”
Available as on-premise and cloud-based solutions, the MessageSolution Medical Image Archive is a DICOM
standard based and vendor neutral archive (VNA) solution. It enables centralized image sharing for remote viewing
cross-country, drastically lowers storage costs of medical image archiving, reduces picture archive communication
system (PACS) upgrade costs and manages image retention. The integration with Microsoft SharePoint viewing
capability helps organizations to leverage their ROI in SharePoint to quickly deploy MessageSolution Medical Image
Archive and allows users to view archived medical image studies seamlessly from SharePoint or EMR, accessible
from desktop, laptop, tablets, and other mobile devices.
Today the storage of PACS is increasing by 20 to 40% annually with healthcare organizations facing the challenges
of ever-rising cost for the storage for medical images. The MessageSolution Medical Image Archive acts as a hub for
centralized medical image sharing and seamlessly integrates with SharePoint. It significantly improves interoperability
for hospitals and healthcare providers. Doctors and healthcare professionals from all departments can locate, access
and retrieve X-ray study, PET scans, MRIs, etc. within seconds. Healthcare providers can also securely share
images and reports online with non-affiliated hospitals or healthcare organizations, to reduce costs of physically
shipping. MessageSolution also saves organizations thousands of dollars by reducing the cost on upgrading their
MessageSolution also leverages its unique in-process data compression and single-instance-storage (SIS) to reduce
storage requirements by up to 75% on the archiving server, variant upon file formats, which represents significant
cost savings. After compression, data is stored in an easy-to-maintain and secure format (including immutable
storage). Data can be offloaded from primary storage banks to inexpensive archiving storage. Organizations can
granularly manage medical image retention through the creation of hierarchical retention policies to optimize storage
use, improve interoperability, and maintain compliance.
MessageSolution provides a complete solution that allows each organization to customize file archiving, retention and
privacy policies to achieve comprehensive compliance while supporting Exchange environments. Multi-tiered policy
capabilities also allow organizations to balance record retention with data storage optimization and mitigate
unnecessary legal risk.
For the organizations moving to cloud environment such as Microsoft Office 365 or other vendor-hosted platforms,
MessageSolution can help from step one – migration to Office 365. MessageSolution Platform delivers turnkey
solutions that allow each healthcare organization to customize the data migration process, enterprise information
archiving, retention and privacy policies to achieve HIPAA compliance and provide access in Azure Cloud Network. It
serves as a centralized, auditable data store for email, SharePoint and file system data. Data is archived in real-time
and is automatically retained or (permanently) deleted in accordance with configured retention policies.
MessageSolution delivers highly controlled archive access with multi-tiered access permissions, to protect
institutional and patient privacy. Policy-based data redaction can also be configured to protect sensitive information
such as patient IDs, credit card numbers, social security numbers, etc. for HIPAA or PCI compliance. Detailed logs
and configurable reports track archive access, search history, data retrieval, etc. Archived data can also be stored in
immutable formats such as Blu-Ray. MessageSolution is also one of the few solution providers to offer compliance
monitoring features to assess compliance governance.
MessageSolution will be showcasing its enterprise and cloud-based solutions for enterprise information archiving and
eDiscovery at HIMSS 2015 at McCormick Place in Chicago, IL on April 12-16, 2015 at booth #4490. For product
