November 21, 2013 — Etiam Corp. will demonstrate and launch its Nexus 4.2, the core digital imaging and communications in medicine (DICOM) router of Etiam-Connect services, Dec. 1-6 at the upcoming Radiological Society of North America Annual Meeting  (RSNA 2013) in Chicago. At the conference, Etiam will provide attendees with a full test drive of the software during the conference.
 
The Nexus 4.2, which is the workflow engine behind Etiam-Connect, is an intelligent DICOM router, which allows for the secure and instant exchange of medical files between institutions. Installed within a healthcare institution, Etiam Nexus 4.2 connects to the local picture archiving and communication system (PACS), or any local imaging modality, and allows clinicians to submit opinion requests to remote experts by exchanging both imaging and clinical data securely over the internet using encrypted data exchange services operated by Etiam.
 
“When a hospital utilizes Etiam-Connect, they need not worry about hackers stealing valuable patient data from a remote cloud,” said Ron Chabot, general manager, Etiam Corp. “With Etiam-Connect, no patient information is stored on the cloud. Without storing patient data in the cloud, medical professionals and hospitals can be assured that patient data is secured.”
 
The new release of Etiam Nexus 4.2 has a redesigned user interface, optimized for quick and intuitive handling by all medical staff including emergency physicians, radiologists and surgeons. The platform is entirely Web-based, making it accessible from any computer, mobile device or tablet using a Web browser. Based on the latest Web technology, Etiam Nexus 4.2 contains a new HTML5 Web viewer making it possible to view medical images without having to install browser add-ons, further addressing the concerns of information security with patient data.
 
Etiam Nexus 4.2 also supports various structured forms that allow healthcare professionals to quickly upload relevant clinical information along with images when collaborating with remote experts. The ability to handle multiple medical forms makes it possible to use Etiam-Connect for needs such as stroke, second advice requests, teleradiolody and teledermatology.
 
To date, several hundred institutions worldwide are using Etiam-Connect, and more than 100 million medical images are exchanged monthly.
