Cloud Hosting Services Gives Data Management a Lift

December 2, 2009 - New cloud-hosted data services are creating a paradigm shift in the way the medical imaging community exchanges and shares information with referring physicians, specialists, surgeons and Health Information Exchanges (HIEs). Cloud hosted services provides radiologists, referring physicians, and patients with real-time access to diagnostic images and reports with just the click of a button.

The structure can improve workflow and eliminate the costly method of sharing images through CDs and DVDs. It also can revitalize the revenue-building potential of imaging practices.

The Candelis Cloud can receive images and reports from a hospital or imaging center PACS and act as the universal access point for referring physicians, simultaneously alleviating load on the enterprise PACS infrastructure and addressing HIPAA requirements for the maintenance of redundant copies of imagery. Referring physicians are automatically notified when studies and reports are available, which they can then review with provided toolsets. Hospitals and imaging centers are routinely faced with risks associated with accepting and importing patient studies into their PACS systems, as doing so may expose their networks to viruses, inconsistent patient metadata and other dangers. In these instances, the cloud can be exploited as a secondary repository of patient studies from other facilities.
