eMix Announces 250th Customer for Medical Image-Sharing

August 19, 2011 – eMix, a business venture incubated by DR Systems, announced that 250 facilities are now using its cloud-based service for sharing medical imaging studies and reports. The 250th customer is Oregon State University Student Health Services in Corvallis, Ore.

The announcement comes less than five months after eMix announced its 150th customer in March 2011. The service debuted in early 2010, when members of Image Movement of Montana (IMOM), a grassroots organization composed of Montana healthcare facilities, became the first institutions to go live with the service.

Since then, eMix has been adopted by facilities as diverse as large urban urgent-care medical centers, rural hospitals, teaching hospitals, community hospitals, radiology practices and imaging centers.

eMix, which stands for Electronic Medical Information Exchange, enables secure sharing of images and reports among disparate institutions and physicians via the Internet. As a vendor-neutral, cloud-based technology, eMix makes possible the near-instantaneous transfer of imaging and other medical data, even between information technology systems that do not normally "talk to each other."

eMix provides eight layers of security to protect healthcare institutions' patient data. The eMix security architecture enables institutions to comply with requirements of the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), as well as enforce strict security policies of their own.

Using eMix is as simple as using email. The technology eliminates the need for provider facilities to burn CDs, print films or fax reports. Because eMix is a hosted service, hospitals and other healthcare providers do not need to purchase or maintain any additional hardware or software or maintain virtual private networks (VPNs).

eMix utilizes infrastructure solutions from EMC and data center virtualization technology from VMware.

Cloud computing is a virtual IT infrastructure that combines the controls and security of today's data center with the agility required for eMix's innovative approach to exam-sharing, while substantially reducing costs.

New features recently added to eMix include:

     -Automated report delivery to EMR inbox – eMix EMRconnect enables a reading facility to set up its referring physicians to receive reports automatically into their EMR inbox.

    -Auto-upload and auto-address – enables users to upload an exam and address it to the recipient with one click.
