Linking Hospitals to In-Cloud Services

Case Study by David Brossard from BT at VordelWorld

Medical processing is a very good use case for Cloud Computing, since it requires significant processing power. It also has clear and obvious governance requirements, concerning secure access to information. David Brossard from BT is speaking at VordelWorld on the solution which his team has put together using Vordel and Axiomatics products to link hospitals to in-Cloud services for radiotherapy processing.

Here is the abstract from the VordelWorld Conference site:

David will illustrate how secure access to computer resources has been achieved by innovating on top of products form Vordel and Axiomatics. He will use the RadioptherapyGrid pilot as an example. RadiotherapyGrid is a solution that enables a group of hospitals to securely access in-Cloud services for radiotherapy processing that utilise Grid Computing technology in order to plan the best possible radio therapy treatment for cancer patients.

This service offers two core functions: verification of plans using accurate, but computationally expensive, techniques and searching for the optimal treatments. These tools improve the efficiency and effectiveness of planned treatments as well as reducing the overall cost of treatment planning.RadioptherapyGrid is on of the 25 business pilots delivered by the BEinGRID project, which cover most sectors of the European market Financial Services and Media to eHealth and eScience, and include all key stakeholders in their respective value chains.

BEinGRID is the largest collaborative research investment on ICT for business funded by the European Commission to date. It delivers business studies in commercial applications of Grid and Cloud Computing and technical innovation in the areas ranging from Identity and Access Management to Data Management and Virtual Hosting.
