November 22, 2013 — Etiam Corp. will present the Etiam-Connect along with its Nexus 4.2 update, which features a smoother client interface, at the 2013 annual meeting of the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA). Etiam will also allow attendees to test its video conferencing solution in real time as well as see the management capabilities of the new ETIAM-Connect 4.2 software.
Etiam provides hospitals and institutions with a solution that allows doctors to eliminate the use of CDs and move to a completely digital platform. The platform, Etiam-Connect, gives physicians the power to view and open CDs that come in from an outside institution, share and review studies and images that are stored within the CD, and send them to referring physicians and upload to the picture archiving and communication system (PACS). Professionals can also convert the image formats into the popular DICOM (digital imaging and communication in medicine) format instantly in the platform.
Additionally, Etiam has partnered with Vidyo, a videoconferencing company that bring an additional telecommunication aspect to the platform. This new feature incorporates a video conferencing session right in the platform for physicians and referring doctors to collaborate on studies receive second opinions.
“Our goal of integrating HD video teleconsultation into our highly regarded Etiam-Connect service is to provide a comprehensive solution for telemedicine that includes the ability to electronically exchange medical cases, share medical images and perform real-time video conferencing,” said Eric Le Bihan, CEO of Etiam. “To date, Etiam-Connect is the only solution on the market offering both advanced medical image exchange workflow, as well as teleconsultation services. These two services are required for handling telemedicine expertise where access to radiological images and a remote view of the patient are prerequisites to perform an accurate diagnosis, as is the case for stroke patients, for example.”
