Harris Corp. Enters Healthcare Market with Image, Data Transfer Technology

February 7, 2008 – The Harris Corp., a $4.2 billion technology provider to the government, military and intelligence communities, will officially enter the healthcare IT market at the 2008 HIMSS Conference in Orlando, FL later this month.

The company says it will provide the ability to view and manipulate high-definition images, such as digital pathology samples, at file sizes 1,000 times larger than what is possible today. It will also provide the ability to share terabyte-size images with specialists across the globe in real-time to collaborate and make quicker and more informed decisions about treatment. It will also provide rapid searches of archived video, voice, text, and other data formats at the point-of-care to reliably access critical medical information, thereby supporting better decisions.

Harris brought U.S. Intelligence into the digital world by overcoming the technical barriers of managing and manipulating very large satellite images. These sophisticated imaging capabilities will allow for procedures, such as pathology sample analysis, to be conducted in a digital format, so the sample can be viewed, manipulated, preserved and distributed. Harris offers a broad multi-range display processor portfolio in the broadcast industry. These same high-definition systems are being transplanted into healthcare so surgeons can gain situational awareness and intelligence in the operating room. With this Multiviewer technology, surgeons don’t have to scrub in and out just to view a pathology sample or check patient information. They can view a patient’s vital signs, manipulate digital pathology samples, and access the EMR all at once on one monitor from within the OR. A demo of digital pathology and its remote collaboration capabilities, as well as a demo of Harris’ Multiviewer technology will be on display in Harris booth at HIMSS.

Harris processes, archives, preserves and delivers mission-critical information, including video, at multiple security levels every day. Its ability to associate voice, imagery, text and symbols in a searchable format provides for rapid video archiving searches, giving clinicians the ability to scour archives in real-time. For example, a surgeon who has not previously operated on a particular patient can search for specific attributes, such as “lesion” or “polyp” while in the OR, and the technology will identify, extract and visually display data, including video segments, relating to the attribute. Harris’ goal is empower caregivers with ready access to critical information so they can make more informed decisions about treatment.
