Re: Those poor data stores
I wonder how it will deal with data images produced by doctors/hospitals that are nor serviced by Nuance? Sounds like some kind of universal key, a way to seach everywhere that these types of huge datafiles might be stored. One thing that might make the whole process a bit easier is that, by computer network standards, data retrieval can be a bit pokey. It's not like you need it to be virtually instantaneous, as in video communication.

Re: Those poor data stores
You're right, those files are scary big, and I understand something like a CT scan can consist of many image slices, each one a multi-gig file.

Those poor data stores
I personally love seeing how cloud is helping to advance healthcare by simplifying the way data is processed and stored.  I'd be curious to see how Nuance deals with the large files stores that come from working with such a medium as radiology images, as when you figure how many patients and the sheer size of the data generated by each one, the back end system must be quite robust!
