    Chris, 
    That’s all very interesting.  I think it will save money, but I have to ask, how do you “know” which data isn’t being used? Radiologists will want to look at priors, that may have been acquired years before.  Just because a study may be 30 days old doesn’t mean it’s not “being used’.  Do you use any predictive algorithms to determine which priors for which types of patients need to remain on the “closer” tier than the others?  For example, with mammo, a patient may have been getting their yearly screening for the past 10 years.  Then, when there’s a finding in the current screener,  a radiologist may want to compare it with and view the baseline, that was performed 10 years go, along with the most recent couple of years.  My point being that just because something is “older” doesn’t mean it’s being used.  How does AWS account for that?
    Thank you for the response it was very informative.
