Improving the scaling and efficiency of healthcare image processing

Faster image processing and the ability to share critical data through real-time collaboration can lead to quicker and more accurate diagnoses, helping to improve patient outcomes. Boston Children's Hospital and the Massachusetts Open Cloud (MOC) are democratizing medical image processing with a system called Children's Research Integration System (ChRIS).

In this webinar, we'll take a deep dive into how ChRIS benefits from the MOC and its use of Red Hat® technologies. Topics will include how Boston Children's Hospital:

  • Made it easier to build, deploy, and scale applications for imaging, analytics, and diagnostics with Linux® containers and Kubernetes using Red Hat OpenShift® Container Platform.
  • Created an agile cloud infrastructure for scalable compute notes and accelerated graphics processing unit (GPU) computing while adhering to security standards with Red Hat OpenStack® Platform.
  • Improved the scale and efficiency of their healthcare image processing applications with other technologies like Red Hat Ansible® Automation and Red Hat Ceph® Storage.
