March 26, 2014 — Medweb has announced new enhancements to its core image exchange and cloud-based archiving services that enables users to integrate in real time teleradiology events into an electronic medical record (EMR) using standard HL7 and digital imaging and communications in medicine (DICOM) standards. Medweb Exchange uses existing teleradiology consult implementations to create infinitely scalable systems so facilities will also be able to share teleradiology consults across multiple enterprises using industry standards. Medweb Cloud picture archive communications systems (PACS) service extends certified IHE-compliant image archiving to all sizes of medical practices.
Medweb Exchange utilizes the Medweb Clouds offering, which is now available as an integrated storage service giving clinicians a single resource that links to all image sources in their community. In many cases, users will also be able to take advantage of DICOM message types such as IAN (Instance availability notification) to show how telemedicine consults can generate an automated billing event that is accepted by the hospital or clinic billing system.
