New Portable Interface System Delivers Images, EMRs

October 13, 2010 — The new Virtual Viewbox (patent-pending) gives physicians access to real-time radiology services virtually anywhere, anytime. It is a portable interface system that delivers images, electronic medical records (EMR) and specialist consultation to physicians using any internet-ready device. Virtual Viewbox ensures HIPAA and HITECH compliance in transmitting patient information and offers a timely solution to the newly activated federal incentive for physicians to implement EMR.

While existing technologies offer teleradiology services for facilities or hospital systems, Virtual Viewbox is designed specifically for physicians. It streamlines the process of sharing patient information by collating old and new patient records created by any picture archiving and communications systems (PACS) into a single listing. It also enables physicians to conduct virtual side-by-side consultations with a master radiologist.

Musculoskeletal Imaging Consultants (MSKIC) and its partner, Salt Lake MRI (SLMRI), launched their proprietary Virtual Viewbox at the Utah State Orthopaedic Society's annual meeting in September.

Virtual Viewbox is available at no cost to physicians. Physicians can access the Virtual Viewbox system using any internet-ready device, such as personal computers and smartphones. Reports reside on the Virtual Viewbox server. Physicians can use Virtual Viewbox by asking their imaging centers to send reports to MSKIC for reading.
