July 8, 2010 – Users of eMix’s cloud-based sharing technology now have the ability to preview exams from any Web browser or smart phone, thanks to a new feature called eMix Preview. Any authenticated users can now preview the reports and images of any eMix exam package and save them directly into their electronic medical record (EMR).
The preview images and reports can be accessed via any Web browser without downloading viewing software or the exam file. They can also be accessed on mobile phones or any other Web-enabled device such as the iPhone or iPad. Users can then elect to convert the files to PDF for saving to an EMR, hospital information system (HIS), or local computer.
Other benefits of eMix Preview:
• It allows a provider to dramatically speed up delivery of diagnostic results to virtually any other institution, physician or patient, no matter where the recipient is located or what HIS or EMR they use.
• eMix Preview does not require a software download, allowing referring physicians at a hospital without download privileges to quickly view diagnostic information.
• Recipients can use eMix Preview to immediately make results available in their EMR. eMix, which stands for Electronic Medical Information Exchange, enables secure sharing of images and reports among disparate institutions and physicians via the Internet.
eMix, a new business venture from DR Systems, is a cloud-based, hosted service, so users do not need to purchase or maintain any additional hardware or software. The vendor-neutral technology also eliminates the need for provider facilities to burn CDs, print films or fax reports.
