Peake Healthcare Innovations Announces New Approach to Medical Image Management

Peake Healthcare Innovations, the result of a joint venture between two companies, Harris Corporation and Johns Hopkins Medicine, recently announced a new approach to medical image management. Through the PeakeSecure cloud archiving platform, the company provides comprehensive managed service solutions from the cloud to help healthcare providers manage the extremely tough task of storing and handling medical images and other concerned healthcare information.

This joint venture was set up in March 2011 and brings together the positive points of Harris, a global communications and information technology company, and Johns Hopkins Medicine. Peake has made use of both companies’ expertise to create a cross-enterprise image archiving system that hosts viewing and workflow applications.

In a release, Adam Zaricki, CEO, Peake Healthcare Innovations, said, “Peake is combining the clinical and healthcare IT expertise of Johns Hopkins Medicine with the secure technologies of Harris to bring a unique and disruptive image management solution to the market. Through the strength of our joint venture along with our exceptional technology partners, we are the first to bring a trusted cloud solution that addresses the complex challenges faced by healthcare providers in managing the growing volumes of imaging data.”

Peake’s solutions can host clinical viewing tools thereby helping both hospitals and health care systems to virtualize their clinical desktop at the point of care. PeakeSecure works as the base on which third party applications can be placed for diagnostic workflow, enterprise clinical viewing as well as advanced visualization, analytics and research among other vital systems integrations. With Peake’s cross-enterprise solutions, one will be able to help the inclusion of medical images in Health Information Exchanges (HIEs).
