ROUND ROCK, Texas -- May 15, 2013

Trinitas Regional Medical Center has selected Dell’s Unified Clinical Archive
(UCA) solution to manage its rapidly growing archive of clinical images.

Trinitas, a teaching hospital serving central New Jersey, needed a scalable
and application-neutral storage solution for the more than 113,000 radiology
and cardiology studies it generates each year. The hospital had outgrown its
existing storage capacity and needed a secure disaster recovery and business
continuity solution that didn’t rely on time-intensive tape backups. Also, as
part of its effort to meet Stage 2 Meaningful Use requirements, Trinitas plans
to integrate images with its electronic medical records (EMR) system.

Dell’s flexible and vendor-neutral UCA solution allows Trinitas to store
images long-term in the Dell Cloud Clinical Archive while maintaining five
years’ worth of images on-site for instant access. The cloud archive stores
two copies of every image at geographically separate locations, providing an
efficient disaster recovery strategy without the need to maintain and manage a
second data center.

Trinitas is a member of Jersey Health Connect, a 10-county New Jersey-based
health information exchange (HIE) that is committed to sharing information
among participating providers to improve care delivery and empower patients.
Moving clinical images to a single cloud archive that supports industry
standards for interoperability and exchange will facilitate EMR integration
and, ultimately, enable image-sharing across the HIE.

The hospital also benefits from Dell’s pay-per-study pricing model for
cloud-based archiving, which eliminates the need for any upfront capital
investment. “Dell’s operational pricing model allows Trinitas to stay focused
on its mission of providing healthcare services to the area’s most poor and
vulnerable,” said Judy Comitto, vice president of information services and
chief information officer for Trinitas Regional Medical Center.

The Dell Cloud Clinical Archive is managing more than 86 million clinical
studies and more than 6 billion diagnostic imaging objects, and supporting
more than 800 clinical sites in the industry’s largest vendor-neutral hybrid
cloud for medical imaging. The cloud is designed to meet the HIPAA Security
Rule standards.

Based on its analysis of the enterprise imaging informatics market, Frost &
Sullivan recognized Dell Healthcare and Life Sciences with its 2012 North
American Company of the Year Award, noting that “Dell's Unified Clinical
Archive has set the standard for cloud-based  enterprise-wide management of
medical images.”

“Our existing storage was not at all scalable, and Dell brought us a solution
that will grow with our needs and provide the security and disaster recovery
capabilities we require,” said Judy Comitto, vice president of information
services and chief information officer for Trinitas Regional Medical Center.
“This cloud-based approach provides our physicians with faster access to
images, facilitates sharing and lowers our long-term costs.”

“As hospitals strive to improve care and meet ever-changing regulatory
requirements, they shouldn’t also have to be experts in data storage and
management,” said August Calhoun, Ph.D., vice president and general manager of
Dell Healthcare and Life Sciences. “Dell is pleased to be working with
Trinitas to create a secure, cloud-based hybrid solution that meets their
storage needs and fosters better collaboration among caregivers.”
