Children's Hospital Colorado to Manage Medical Images Via the Cloud With Nucleus.io Platform

July 30, 2018 — NucleusHealth and Children’s Hospital Colorado’s (Children’s Colorado) Center for Innovation have formed a strategic partnership to improve patient and provider access to medical images using the Nucleus.io platform. The partnership will allow Children’s Colorado to utilize the cloud-based enterprise viewer and medical image management solution to consolidate disparate medical imaging data across their entire organization for improved image availability.

Providing Children’s Colorado with quick and secure enterprise-wide access to patient medical images from any web-enabled device will improve physician satisfaction and will help their clinicians develop quicker diagnoses and treatment plans. It also has the potential to allow patients and their caregivers to play a more active role in their own healthcare by giving them the ability to view and share medical images remotely in the cloud in future versions.

Built on the Microsoft Azure cloud computing platform, Nucleus.io enables web-based medical image uploads, access, archiving and diagnostic-quality image viewing using modern web browser and Microsoft Azure technologies, without the delays commonly experienced with other cloud or enterprise-based solutions. As the first pediatric hospital to partner with NucleusHealth in implementing Nucleus.io, Children’s Colorado will serve as a co-development partner by creating a clinical feedback loop between physicians and engineers to ensure the development of innovative new solutions that solve practical clinical workflows to improve patient and provider satisfaction.

“Our new, exciting collaboration with NucleusHealth, an effort spearheaded at Children’s Colorado by John Strain, M.D., has the potential to usher in a new era of medical image storage, viewing and transmission for not only Children’s Colorado, but the entire field of pediatric medicine,” said Nicholas Stence, M.D., director of pediatric neuroradiology at Children’s Colorado. “By storing medical images on the Azure cloud, we are not only enabling healthcare providers to access high-quality images securely from almost any location, including their mobile phones; we are also ensuring those images are not vulnerable to the same threats as images stored via enterprise-based solutions, such as damage due to flooding or other natural disasters. At the same time, storing images in the cloud like this will allow for easier sharing and collaboration – for both diagnostic and research purposes.”

A major concern within pediatric facilities is the need for storage of digital medical images for decades or longer. Nucleus.io and Azure technologies allow for scalable image archiving within Azure’s secure cloud platform. Patients’ images can be easily accessed using the streaming technologies built into Nucleus.io. These technologies allow physicians to access exam results from virtually anywhere within seconds instead of hours or days.

The Nucleus.io solution will allow for new levels of collaboration between pediatric specialists and possibly foster global discoveries. In future versions of the software, clinicians from around the world will be able to collaborate with peers, access and view imaging exams, and extract greater value from their imaging data through advanced analytics and machine learning using the cloud.
