February 28, 2008 — eHealth Global Technologies debuted at HIMSS the eHealthLoader, a new service for migrating film or paper into a digital format designed to assist facilities with the transfer of patient images and medical records from an analog format or legacy IT solution into an electronic information management system, such as PACS, EMRs or other clinical information systems (CIS).
Through the use of industry standards, such as DICOM and HL7, along with the latest digitizing technology, eHealthLoader provides a solution for facilities seeking to capture historical paper or film-based medical records electronically. The service also reportedly interfaces with a healthcare facility’s existing IT systems and uploads the data for use by clinicians. Additionally, the service is said to be able to provide a “digital bridge” to migrate data from one digital system to another.
All digitized information is said to be sent to a facility’s internal systems over a virtual private network (VPN) in encrypted files for patient privacy and data security.
