March 21, 2018 — Cloud-based medical image management and teleradiology company NucleusHealth recently announced the commercial licensing of its Platform-as-a-Service (Nucleus PaaS) that was showcased within the Microsoft booth at the Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS) Conference, March 5-9 in Las Vegas. Nucleus PaaS provides integration partners, across every facet of the healthcare industry, with medical imaging data at the speed and scalability of next-generation cloud technology, allowing third parties to deliver medical images through their own tools and specialty workflows.
"Many healthcare systems and companies have either developed or acquired clinical applications to deliver patient data to caregivers while they're remote or mobile," said President and Chief Operating Officer Claude Hooton. "However, the key data missing in these applications are current and prior diagnostic medical images (i.e. DICOM), which are critical for delivering superior patient care, enhancing various workflows, and even for creating new revenue opportunities," said Hooton.
Others in the healthcare industry also have a need to consume medical imaging data in areas such as planning applications for medical devices, for custom manufacturing of implants, for clinical research and tracking of clinical outcomes, and for product development. Nucleus PaaS enables cloud-based medical imaging integration to current clinical systems and to the third-party applications.
By leveraging Microsoft Azure, Nucleus PaaS can empower care teams and unleash new capabilities for the entire imaging ecosystem ranging from providers, medical device manufacturers, pharmaceutical companies and clinical SaaS application developers, to payors. Developers can take full advantage of the platform through a robust layer of RESTful application programming interface (APIs) to support clinical workflows and build custom web-based medical imaging applications much faster and easier. The solution also provides a means to extract greater value from data through advanced analytics and machine learning. Using Nucleus PaaS allows developers to create, test, manage, automate and update their unique apps without having to spend years building their web-based platform.
The Nucleus.io platform powers a complete suite of cloud-based imaging applications built on Nucleus PaaS, each developed to optimize interactions with medical images end-to-end, including diagnostic reading, archiving, image sharing and clinical viewing. Nucleus.io is scalable and enables secure remote access to any internet-enabled device, made possible with patented StatStream technology for immediate access to even the largest of medical images. Nucleus.io's client-side rendering techniques solve for latency with instant load times and a responsive user experience without loss of performance or image quality.
