Dell Technologies at Pathology Visions 2019!

Here at Dell Technologies, we are thrilled to be attending the Digital Pathology Associations’ show, Pathology Visions, in Orlando, Florida next week. This year, Dell Technologies is a Platinum Sponsor. You may be wondering, what is a technology company doing at a healthcare/pathology show? Well, I’m glad you asked.

Dell Technologies is a key player and a trusted partner by over 8K hospitals worldwide[1]. Today, over 65% of storage infrastructure in US hospitals runs on our storage arrays[1]. Dell EMC is not new to the digital pathology ecosystem. In fact, our Unstructured Data Solutions (UDS) are ideal for all medical imaging and archive workloads.

Together with our healthcare technology partners, we can deliver a true digital pathology solution for your hospital or research facility. Dell EMC has strategic relationships with a wide range of whole-slide imaging (WSI) scanner companies, such as Fujifilm, Huron Digital Pathology, Inspirata, Leica BioSystems, Phillips, Proscia, Sectra, and others. By leveraging our unstructured storage like Dell EMC Isilon, customers can quickly get their scanned samples to storage for viewing, analysis, and diagnosis.

When the All-Flash Isilon is paired with GPU powered servers, customers can run artificial intelligence algorithms against slide images for things such as pattern recognition among samples. With the help of AI, pathologists can quickly analyze and identify cancers and other diagnostic intensive diseases. In turn, this allows for improved patient care with an accelerated time to treatment. Isilon, with its multi-cloud connectivity, also allows for worldwide sharing of WSIs. This enables collaboration from experts around the globe, leading to better diagnosis and treatment options.

When it comes to patient data, we know there are security and archive requirements set in place by both the institution and local and federal governments. Therefore, Isilon offers replication, and data at rest encryption with self-encrypting drives, all to keep patient data protected and secure. These requirements typically mean long term retention of said patient data. Dell EMC offers Isilon architected for archive, Dell EMC ECS for on-prem or off-prem long term storage, or customers can leverage the cloud for cost effective archive.

There is obviously so much more to say about digital pathology, Dell Technologies’ role in healthcare, and the strategic and trusted partner we can be to you. So, stop by and see us at Pathology Visions 2019 in Booth 104.
