Project Scope -
• To procure a single shared PACs or VNA imaging repository for University of Otago researchers (across the Dunedin, Christchurch and Wellington campuses), with fine-grained comprehensive security, and the ability to handle the modalities run by the University.
• To design, install, configure and commission the new solution and enable data flows from a representative sample of the modalities run by the University in partnership with the successful vendor.
• To obtain documentation outlining the final as-built state of the system.
• To put in place adequate support for the solution and to understand the operate model and vendor escalation procedures.
• To prove that the solution works end to end.
• To facilitate the secure storage, archiving, reuse and retention of imaging data for staff and postgraduate students across the main University of Otago campuses.
• To support hands-on training and teaching requirements for groups of post graduate health sciences students.
• To define and store rich metadata describing all imaging data, that would in turn enable better data searching, reuse, analysis, and future research proposals.
• To help support the work of the University ethics and research committees.
• To enable better reporting on all imaging related research activity.
• To ensure that imaging data is handled securely; and that all access is logged/authenticated/authorised and linked to the University Identity Management System.
• To enable better IT support for imaging related research – a Research PACs would become an IT research service offering, fully supported and maintained for the common good.
• To ensure that all imaging metadata and data is highly available on all University campuses, such that critical research and teaching activities can reasonably continue in the event of a major disaster.
