Company will be one of eight imaging technology providers to join program encouraging standardization of image sharing capabilities

August 23, 2016 — Lexmark International announced in late July that Lexmark Healthcare will participate in the Image Share Validation Program, sponsored by the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) in collaboration with The Sequoia Project. Lexmark is one of eight imaging technology providers selected to participate. 

The Image Share Validation Program was created to encourage adoption of image-sharing capabilities by imaging vendors and radiology sites, expanding access to medical images and reports. Image sharing improves physician and patient communication and helps engage patients in their own healthcare. Improved access to imaging records enables better collaboration and decision making among physicians involved in a patient’s care, leading to more efficient utilization of imaging systems and improved patient safety and care by eliminating redundant imaging procedures.

The Image Share Validation Program will test the compliance of Lexmark Healthcare and other vendors’ systems using quality standards determined most effective for accurate and efficient exchange of medical images, including those used in the RSNA Image Share Network. Validation provides a number of benefits to providers and patients, including enhanced quality of care, improved efficiency, reduced costs and standards-based interoperability to spur innovation. Vendors that successfully pass the testing program will be awarded the right to use the RSNA Image Share Validation mark to convey to purchasers that their products have achieved compliance with the capabilities tested in the program.

“The RSNA Image Share Validation program in partnership with The Sequoia Project is sending a message,” said David S. Mendelson, M.D., FACR, vice chair of radiology IT at the Mount Sinai Health System in New York, N.Y. “To promote the best interest and care of our patients, the world of imaging is ready to rapidly advance standards-based solutions for imaging interoperability. These are standards employed elsewhere in the world and present a solution that can evolve as new technologies arise. We are pleased to have Lexmark Healthcare participate in this important initiative.”
