November 18, 2011 — PACSgear announced it will introduce its PACSgear Enterprise Imaging Platform at RSNA 2011. The EIP is a suite of solutions designed to capture, cache, stream and integrate photographic images and medical videos throughout the enterprise.
The company will demonstrate MDR 7.0, an MPEG2/MPEG4-compliant video capture solution, and the PACSgear Media Server for video caching and streaming. The platform supports the company’s recently announced PACS 2.0 initiative, the evolution of medical image connectivity to include integration with electronic health records (EHRs).
“With EHRs coming online, hospitals are quickly finding that some image documentation, such as thermal paper-based images and videotape is not compatible with digital workflow,” said Eli Rapaich, PACSgear’s CEO. “In other cases, digital camera images from dermatology or endoscopic video clips from surgery circulate locally, but cannot be viewed outside their respective departments. By introducing the PACSgear Enterprise Imaging Platform, facilities can easily and affordably capture, cache, stream and integrate high resolution video and other images in a way that complements their existing PACS and EHR investments.”
The platform will be highlighted at the company’s booth during RSNA 2011.
