DICOM Grid Debuts Next Generation Clinical Viewer for Enhanced Mobile Image Access
Remote viewing system offers physicians HIPAA compliant vehicle for securely accessing patient images on mobile devices.
Jan. 15, 2013– DICOM Grid, a global provider of cloud-based medical image exchange solutions, recently launched its next generation clinical viewer. This latest release enables the easy access and viewing of complex medical imaging data and associated reporting from any browser-based device or iPad.
DICOM Grid’s proprietary technology allows doctors to exchange and view images without the geographic or institutional boundaries that limit the traditional methods for sharing medical images. Specifically designed to improve collaboration amongst physicians across a variety of mobile platforms, the mobile viewer boosts an intuitive interface that is simple to use and enhances a physician’s natural workflow.
Mobile viewing enables doctors to streamline collaboration with patients. Pulling up data on a tablet during the care decision process is the ideal visual aid, resulting in increased involvement and patient engagement. The viewer comes equipped with a variety of interactive tools used for measuring, annotating, and manipulating images. It can even be optimized for low bandwidth environments.
“The availability of user-friendly and cost-effective technology is resulting in the rapid adoption of mobile devices in the health arena,” stated Morris Panner, CEO of DICOM Grid. According to Mobile Health News, 25 percent of health care providers use tablets at their practice, while another 21 percent expect to do so in the next 12 months. “The intersection of cloud data storage, secure-mobile networks, and sleek viewing applications has spawned a new era in healthcare technologies, specifically for tablet users.”
DICOM Grid’s mobile viewer sets the bar high with several patent-pending technologies that make storage and retrieval of images fast and reliable. The solution is also the only proven big-data medical imaging management and mobility viewing solution that can be integrated into third party systems.
The viewer is part of DICOM Grid’s complete suite of medical image exchange features used by leading healthcare organizations to acquire, manage, distribute, and store imaging data.
DICOM Grid will be rolling out the new viewer to clients this month, with a full launch slated for Jan. 30, 2013.
