From Connected Planet: AT&T and Accenture have partnered to create a cloud-based medical imaging solution designed to enable radiologists and other healthcare professionals to electronically share, review and store medical images such as X-rays or MRI scans.

The Accenture Medical Imaging Solution also aims to enable national hospital networks to centrally manage medical images and collaborate efficiently with other institutions.

Healthcare organizations opting to use Accenture Medical Imaging Solution will use network connectivity from AT&T to securely access software developed by Accenture running on servers in two AT&T data centers.

AT&T will manage the data center infrastructure underlying the offering through a managed hosting environment and will also be able to support a hybrid cloud approach for those customers who want to also operate the Accenture software from their own data centers.
