Cloud Technology Used to Store, Access, Share Medical Images Globally

myMedImage DICOM PACS Store Cloud Images Remote Viewing Systems
January 24, 2014 — myMedImage has launched a $200,000 crowd funding campaign on IndieGogo to provide free access to a DICOM compliant PACS system through which physicians can store, share and access medical images from around the world. 
 
The digital imaging project endeavors to limit the more than 30 percent annual waste of medical images, as reported by the World Health Organization (WHO). myMedImage directly links supported patients to primary care and specialty physicians through its medical imaging sharing and consultative network. The model maintains the patient-physician contract.
 
“We asked ourselves ‘how could we solve the real world problem of sharing, storing and managing medical images for those who are remote, or lack access to specialists, or who live in places without established healthcare infrastructures?’” said Christopher Hancock, radiologist, CEO of myMedImage. “We came up with a solution that does all that and more, including access to the specialty care so many worldwide desperately need.”
 
The myMedImage system allows diagnostic images to be seen in a full-featured online cloud-based medical image viewer using internally developed vendor-neutral uploading software and storage, accessible through virtually any internet-enabled device. 
 
The telemedical service is available to individuals, physicians, caregivers, hospitals and governments globally in an effort to streamline medical image viewing and prevent unnecessary, wasted and duplicate medical imaging.

While electronic medical record systems have helped consolidate most patient data into one location, medical imaging IT systems has proved to be more difficult to replicate by large EMR vendors. This has made room in the market for third-party radiology IT vendors that allow easy integration with the larger EMRs like Epic and Cerner. This image shows Agfa's enterprise imaging system, leveraging its ability to be accessed anywhere with internet connection and pull images from radiology and surgery.
