December 2, 2013 — Brit Systems Inc., an image management and IT solutions company, announced it is partnering with Radiolopolis, a global, online community for radiology professionals, to image enable the launch of Consult Me, a peer review consultation capability on the Radiolopolis Radiology Network. As part of the partnership, Radiolopolis will utilize Brit’s Roentgen Cloud and WebWorks viewer as the infrastructure to facilitate image viewing and sharing on the Consult Me consultation platform.
“With the launch of our new consultation platform, Radiolopolis will help expand the peer review capabilities of our members by securely sharing their reading expertise that resides across our community,” said Roland Talanow, M.D., Ph.D., president, radiolopolis.com and radiologist, InnoMed LLC. “It is our hope that by image enabling Consult Me with Roentgen Cloud that we can break down the barriers across borders to peer consultation and communication and help radiologists collaborate and support each other.”
Similar to other social networking sites, such as Facebook or LinkedIn, Radiolopolis has a community of over 13,000 radiologists and healthcare providers who offer or are affiliated with medical imaging services.
The new consultation platform will provide radiologists with an opportunity to obtain virtual peer review of difficult cases or provide other consultation as needed. It will also include search options to help users find specialists or other members by name, location, specialty/expertise and other relevant criteria. Brit’s Roentgen Cloud provides an encrypted, secure method for sharing patient data; no data is saved on the recipient’s computer or workstation hard drive. Both Roentgen Cloud and Brit’s WebWorks viewer are 100 percent browser-based, FDA-cleared and HIPAA-compliant.
