Global Medical Network Offers Secure Data Sharing and Collaboration

April 12, 2011 – A new online network for physicians has gone live. Quentry, from Brainlab, provides the freedom to access, control and share diagnostic imaging from anywhere within a secure clinical platform.

The network debuted that the AANS Annual Scientific Meeting in Denver, Colo.

Clinicians can employ the now consumerized online sharing mentality to disseminate expert knowledge and enhance patient care. For a limited time, neurosurgeons may sign up for Quentry and take advantage of a free trial phase.

It connects users via cloud computing technology, which enables access from any fixed connection within a secure network without having to download special or specific software. Functionality includes secure uploading, sharing, viewing and consulting with clinical members around the world. The system eliminates time-consuming and costly CD production and increases security by eliminating misplacement of medical data CDs. Additionally, it provides applications from centralized servers and operates in highly secure and robust datacenters.

The system is the only PACS-independent online network for moderating clinical best practices combined with the ability to share and discuss medical images with an advanced Web-based DICOM viewer. Members can freely upload and access diagnostic patient images, harness on-demand tools to visualize data, consult colleagues and synchronize work. The network capability allows surgeons to invite colleagues to join their network, consult on a case and moderate best practices, all with the goal of providing the best care possible.

It can connect all the people in the care path – patient, referring physician and specialist – with the goal of streamlining the planning and treatment process and decreasing patient travel where possible. The online transfer of data sets means that treatment plans can be prepared before the patient arrives at the hospital and that referring physicians can be directly involved in the treatment. Post-treatment follow-up between clinical specialists is streamlined and the patient reaps the benefits of the interconnectivity.

Significant upgrades in the coming months will connect Quentry with all Brainlab devices and applications such as iPlan treatment planning software and will make it an accessible archive of clinical data. Soon, it will offer direct Web access to its intelligent software and computational power allowing clinicians to filter, enrich, visualize and leverage digital data.

Services are scalable, ranging from free user login to a full-featured premium subscription version. The site ensures compliance with HIPAA privacy and security rules, safeguarding patient confidentiality.
