August 23, 2016 — Purview announced in late July the launch of its new medical image CD burning solution, Purview Publisher.
The company said Purview Publisher offers a unique way for patients to coordinate their medical records by allowing physicians to print a proprietary QR code directly onto a CD, which synchronizes patients’ medical imaging to their health records. Patients are thus able to leave a healthcare provider with both a physical hard copy of their X-rays, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and computed tomography (CT) scans, and ultrasounds in CD form as well as mobile access to view, share and coordinate their records.
“Coordination of medical information is of paramount importance to patients today,” said Mark Baganz, M.D., of Chesapeake Medical Imaging (CMI). “As the region’s premier medical imaging facility, we provide radiological reads for over 400 patients a day. We are seeing that more and more patients are frustrated with their scattered medical records and are demanding the ability to have more control.”
Up until recently, CMI, based in Annapolis, Md., used a product to publish disks that often malfunctioned, requiring substantial IT maintenance and delaying patients’ access to their critical medical information.
By syncing with electronic access to medical imaging, Purview Publisher enables patients to be the stewards of their own medical records. Purview Publisher integrates with the company’s flagship product, Purview ViVA, which currently provides cloud-based DICOM image access to physicians for over one million patients globally.
“We have been thrilled with the success of the Purview Publisher in providing critical diagnostic information to patients and referring physicians in a coordinated fashion. We will be converting all eleven of our facilities over to Purview Publishers before the end of the year,” said Baganz.
