aycan store is a scalable, high performance DICOM archiving and distribution system that can be accessed on-site or optionally through our off-site data center. From simple to complex workflows in imaging centers, hospitals, and Teleradiology service companies, aycan store can improve the workflow in any environment.
aycan store is available with hardware designed specifically for WORM storage. View the animation on the right to see how you can easily scale an aycan store solution.
aycanstore is at home in any environment. It seamlessly integrates with RIS and other patient management systems. The Import Module assures reliable legacy data migration and its open architecture makes it compatible with most 3rd party vendors. aycanstore supports most radiology compatibility standards, so it can seamlessly integrate into your current environment and with all your DICOM nodes. Once integrated, you’ll stay in control of your data as it is all stored in a vendor neutral DICOM format.
aycanstore‘s unique features allow you to improve productivity without compromising security. Configuring aycanstore‘s auto-routing feature will streamline your workflow by automatically transferring your DICOM data to any desired location. And, with industry-standard VPN encryption methods, aycan store keeps your data traffic secure at all times. aycan also offers optional off-site data storage, so you can safely backup your data for disaster recovery and other applications.
aycanstore‘s RAID system is engineered for performance and scalability, so no matter how quickly your data grows, aycanstore can grow with you and provide the performance you need. With aycanstore, there is no need to migrate your data when you are ready to expand. And with native JPEG-lossless compression, you get end-to-end speed, without the wait.
Standard Features and Options to Streamline Your Workflow
The modular aycan store PACS solution is ready for your current and future needs. In addition to basic DICOM archiving, various options can be added at any time to help you streamline your workflow.
With aycanstore’s versatile auto-routing engine (included), incoming study images can automatically be forwarded to destinations on your network. It’s configurable based on the content of DICOM tags, down to the image level. Routing rules can even be scheduled for specific times of the day or even days of the week for custom overnight or specialty reading.
aycan store offers a Query/Retrieve Filter (option) that can provide a way to allow DICOM Query/Retrieve capability for specific users, without giving full access to your archive. This is ideal for creating departmental or site views of the archive. It’s also been used as a way to limit the view for 3rd party radiologists providing vacation coverage.
Don’t spend time looking for misspelled patient names within the PACS system. Keep your data consistent and current within the RIS and PACS system by IHE scenario using aycanstore’s Patient Information Reconciliation (PIR) function (option). Necessary changes to patient data within the RIS are automatically taken over by the PACS system.
Do you still have DICOM data on old optical, MO, or other legacy magnetic media? Consider migrating that data to a PACS server before they become unreadable using aycan Data Migration Services (option).
Use your storage space and network bandwidth efficiently by storing and transferring your DICOM data with lossless compression (option). Should one of the devices you use not be able to handle compressed data, aycanstore will automatically switch to an ‘uncompressed” mode and transfer the data without compression. With lossless compression you will be able to archive double the amount of image data without having to upgrade your hardware.
In the case of erroneous patient data such as a typo, the Metadata Editor (option) allows you to correct the error in the PACS system. Changes can then easily be sent to update diagnostic workstations.
Does your RIS or HIS not support DICOM Modality Worklist? aycanstore‘s Modality Worklist Module (option) can fill the gap to eliminate patient detail typos. Your RIS, HIS, or even patient scheduling system can feed data direct to aycanstore, which will provide your modalities with auto-populated patient demographics.
Need to have certain DICOM tag values copied to other tags? Need to prefix a site code for specific sending sites? Want CD imports to have a special identifier? aycan store can automatically modify DICOM metadata on arrival based on a rule-set using the Automatic DICOM Header Modification (option).
When a Radiology Information Systems (RIS)/Hospital Information System (HIS) is acquired, or standards and volume needs change, radiology departments are often forced to go with a new PACS as well — with aycanstore, you don’t have to. Vendor neutral aycan store can integrate with just about any current RIS or HIS system with migratable data. And, as aycan store is easily upgradeable, it can meet current and future standards (such as DICOM) and volume needs.
From simple to complex workflows in imaging centers, hospitals, and Teleradiology service companies, aycan store can improve the workflow in any environment.
aycan store can serve as a key element in a Deconstructed PACS, which aycan has been designing, integrating and servicing for over 15 years, helping customers achieve improved system performance and cost efficiencies. aycan offers an archive and viewer, as well as suitable workflows for unique customer needs.
