Diagnostic Imaging Completes the EMR

November 20, 2009 - Because an electronic medical record (EMR) is incomplete without diagnostic images, new platforms that provide a standards-based cross-enterprise image sharing for health information exchange (HIE) are on a growth track.

Imagery from prior exams provides historic and baseline information that is valuable to healthcare providers in formulating a diagnosis and monitoring the condition of the patient. When they do not have access to prior scans, they often order rescans, which wastes money and resources.

Fast, ubiquitous access to medical images through an EHR system connected to an HIE enables convenient usage of healthcare information collected outside the boundaries of the healthcare enterprise.

One solution on display at RSNA 2009 is the AccuRad ImageShare Platform, which leverages standards-based JPEG2000 compression and JPIP streaming technology to enable users in constrained networks across multiple enterprises fast access to diagnostic quality images.

AccuRad ImageShare Platform by Aware Inc. is a standards-based solution for fast and efficient compression, streaming, and viewing of medical images for cross-enterprise health information exchange systems. It achieves interoperability and performance by utilizing DICOM, WADO, the Web services advantages of the IHE’s XDS-I.b Profile, and the advanced features of JPEG2000 compression and JPIP streaming. AccuRad ImageShare Platform is comprised of AccuRad ImageShare Workstation and AccuRad ImageShare Server, which can each be used independently, or together as a comprehensive, turnkey client/server solution. It is built upon Aware’s established AccuRad SDKs, including J2KSuite, and JPIPStream.

Aware Inc. will pariticipate with its new AccuRad ImageShare Platform in the Integrating the Healthcare Enterprise (IHE) Image Sharing Demonstration at RSNA.
