Distributed Systems for Medical Ultrasound

Process Control & Optimization (PCO)

As a large distributed system scales, the ability to simultaneously maintain or enhance performance and reliability creates its own set of unique challenges. How do you address the distributed future, ensure you learn from your past experiences and build on the investments customers have already made? The challenges are real, and in the process of overcoming them BK Medical is building healthcare systems that are more cost effective, and provide greater integration into the patient care systems to facilitate improved decision making for doctors.

BK Medical is devoted to building healthcare systems that are more cost effective, and provide greater integration into the patient care systems to facilitate improved decision making for doctors.

BK Medical settled on RTI Connext DDS as the best foundation for the BK Medical Global Data Bus. Because each distributed system is modular and potentially independently developed, BK Medical needed a mechanism that focused on data to ensure a loose-coupling between system elements. They opted to use a global data bus and a data-centric design approach that includes management tools for performance, reliability and other system attributes. As a result, they would not only decouple applications from each other, but also decouples applications from the need to understand or know anything about underlying physical delivery media or network topology.

IT
Emerging (technology has been on the market for > 2 years)

Independent Application Development - Due to the flexibility DDS offers, features can be developed independently of the need to integrate security into future releases.

Plus and Play - Implement and assess proprietary and commercial hardware architectures rapidly.

Real-time Response and Action - DDS readily addresses the challenge of mixing real-time communications with IT infrastructure, an essential requirement for BK Medical ultrasound systems.
