Acuo Technologies is the world leader in clinical content management and data migration technology. Acuo Universal Clinical Platform (UCP) is an enterprise solution built on a next-generation vendor-neutral archive (VNA). UCP helps healthcare organizations achieve full interoperability across multiple disparate systems by consolidating long-term data management. UCP unlocks clinical content held captive in departmental systems, providing extreme data liquidity that eliminates migration headaches and accelerates patient data to the point of need. With VNA implementation experience that spans all major PACS vendors and storage providers, Acuo is focused on making all components of a healthcare ecosystem work better together.
Acuo Universal Clinical Platform offers superior image management, archiving, and migration solutions that are extensible and collaborative, delivering a set of applications that extend and virtualize storage, network, and application resources. The UCP architecture scales up and out to create either very large centralized repositories or fully distributed DICOM storage grids that offer superior integration, lower total cost of ownership, bandwidth control, speed of deployment and ease of management. UCP was built with the primary purpose of archiving medical images for healthcare enterprises in a highly interoperable fashion. Instead of modifying existing solutions, UCP serves as easily scalable, peer-aware, standards based middleware that is capable of being deployed as a small instance, acting as an intelligent content- based router as well as supporting an entire country's medical imaging archive.
UCP supports standards such as DICOM, HL7, and IHE profiles, including XDS through an XDS-I imaging document source. The database schema allows for fast, portable databases which reduce maintenance and enable rational segregation and efficient aggregation. The database strategy avoids the performance failures experienced by most large systems. The ability to manage the entire distributed system via the management console sets Acuo Universal Clinical Platform apart as a user-configurable and managed software solution, not a restricted vendor-controlled implementation.
