Healthcare applications require absolute reliability. Medical equipment is often used to diagnose infirmities and examine and treat patients. Medical records must be kept secure and accurate as they deal with matters of life and death. Data security is also a prerequisite given the need to keep patients’ health records confidential.
Operating reliably and stably
Transcend’s memory solutions offer many approaches to data reliability and device durability. When it comes to medical treatment, mistakes are unacceptable. Memory products with built-in Error Correcting Code (ECC) can automatically detect and correct transfer errors, thus increasing reliability. Bad Block Management, Wear Leveling, and Garbage Collection technologies manage data stored on NAND flash and re-organize available space, therefore enhancing overall transfer efficiency and extending product durability. Wide Temperature technology and Thermal Sensors ensure that devices can withstand and operate reliably in extreme temperatures. Moreover, when the power supply is unstable, Transcend’s Intelligent Power Shield enhances data transfer reliability in the event of a sudden power outage.
Keeping medical records safe and secure
Patients’ medical records are highly confidential and their handling should enjoy the utmost security. Transcend’s products equipped with hardware-based AES encryption ensure that data is encrypted before being stored on NAND Flash; these products are also compliant with TCG Opal 2.0 Specifications, offering superior data protection and performance.
