September 8, 2011 — EVOCS has released a cloud-based medical image sharing platform to enhance image management, distribution and data exchanges between referring physicians and hospitals, regardless of geographical location. Fysicon was one of the first to create this picture archive solution and has since gone on to control 85 percent of the Dutch market. More than 60 million images have been exchanged via the EVOCS image sharing technology.
The 2011 EVOCS Advanced Webviewer is an XDS, XDE, and HL7 compliant cloud-based platform for document exchange medical imaging management application. It is the first that allows reports to become embedded with the Dicom image. Consultants can communicate directly, share information and images simultaneously via the built-in video conferencing facility.
This technology greatly increases quality of care and patient safety, improves referrals, and aids business continuity between hospitals and consultants. It improves service and promotes tighter integration between referring medical institutions.
EVOCS eliminates the need for CDs and traditional radiology film because authorized facilities can now easily and instantly transmit images either in-house or externally faster than any conventional hospital VPN.
All users can send/receive, DICOM Query/Retrieve regardless of the size of hospital, number of picture archiving and communication system (PACS) vendor servers or consultant radiologists. EVOCS can compress and transmit all modality images, including magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), mammograms and computed tomography (CT) scans via the clinical application.
The image sharing capability accelerates diagnosis and treatment and helps avoid unnecessary imaging rescanning. Images can now arrive at the emergency center well ahead of a referred; this allows studies to be read and clinicians to be prepped and ready as soon as patients come through the doors.
