Compliant archiving
for the healthcare sector

Archive and protect sensitive patient data

Die Archivierung medizinischer Daten können Krankenhäuser mit dem PSM gut umsetzen.

Electronic archiving of medical documents requires special care. At the same time, it poses major challenges for the IT departments of hospitals and healthcare facilities.


Medical doctors, laboratories and clinics thus face special challenges with regard to the archiving of medical data. A solid and optimized software solution for archiving medical documents is much needed. In this respect, the demands on archiving software for the healthcare sector are very high.

Electronic archiving in the healthcare sector: A solution approach

Institutions need a resilient and future-proof storage solution to guarantee compliance with legal requirements and to archive sensitive documents in a legally compliant and audit-proof manner.


The combination of hierarchical storage management, information lifecycle management and hybrid storage infrastructure creates an efficient and scalable archive platform. This type of platform meets the requirements of legally compliant archiving in the healthcare sector.

Software solutions for archiving patient data
