November 8, 2013 — Paxeramed, a medical imaging solution developer based in Boston, has launched the industry's first medical imaging sharing module to social media.
The image-sharing module anonymizes selected computed tomography (CT), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and X-ray images and allows users to share it to social-media platforms from their reading workstations or dedicated viewing apps. Platforms like Facebook and Twitter allow the shared images to be uploaded to private healthcare and hospital social media groups in a secure and HIPAA-compliant manner.
"Paxeramed image sharing module allows radiologists to share images to social media for second opinion or interactive teaching purposes,” said Mohamed Shoura, Ph.D., managaing direct, Paxeramed. “Patients can also post their medical images from their patient healthcare portal (PHR) via Paxera image sharing module.”
"The tool grants easy access for radiologists to share anonymized images and allows users to interact with peers, referring physicians and students for a more proactive and meaningful experience,” Shoura added. “By utilizing a powerful resource like Facebook, we empower the radiology community to access millions of medical images on the Facebook network. Radiologists can instantly learn peers' feedback by consulting an image through social media’s likes, shares and comments.”
The security-focused module incorporates a preview mode to validate that images are anonymized before being posted. The tool delivers enterprise-grade security control through enabling or disabling the feature based on administrator-configured retention policy.
The tool is 510(k)-cleared and is set to be a breakthrough in leveraging radiology training and lifelong teaching.
