PatientKeeper Uses ScImage PICOM Web Platform to Access Images on iPads

March 5, 2012 — PatientKeeper Inc. announced a partnership with ScImage under which PatientKeeper will use ScImage's PICOM web platform to make medical images available to physicians within the PatientKeeper physician workflow environment running on Apple iPads.

For PatientKeeper, the new partnership offers a proven technical solution for integrating images from traditional digital imaging and communications in medicine (DICOM) sources, along with non-DICOM objects, from any vendor's picture archive and communications system (PACS) into the PatientKeeper mobile platform. PatientKeeper provides physicians a single, integrated digital environment to streamline their clinical and administrative workflow, which can be accessed from any web-connected computer, as well as on smartphones and tablets.

For ScImage, the partnership with PatientKeeper added a new distribution channel for its platform. At the center of ScImage's technology is PICOM, a web service technology that works independently of data types, modalities and departments to seamlessly deliver multi-modality image and information management, multi-PACS archiving, Cloud PACS services, offsite disaster recovery and telemedicine functionality.

"With the growing use of tablets by physicians in clinical settings, it's important that we offer flexible solutions for viewing patients' images," said Paul Brient, PatientKeeper's president and CEO. "PatientKeeper and ScImage share an overall philosophy to give physicians the best user experience possible in support of their workflow."
