Software Company Expects Increased Demand for Mobile Applications

January 24, 2011 – A medical picture archiving and communication system (PACS) is now compatible with Apple’s smart phones, portable tablets and other devices. The system, by New Mexico Software, is available on the Apple App Store.

It is part of the company’s effort to engineer mobile medical applications for Apple’s iOS and Google’s Android “Honeycomb” operating systems.

"We are seeing increasing interest from our customers to use our software on smart phones and tablets to make them more productive,” said Rafael Rubio, vice president of product development.

The company’s XR-EXpress PACS software can integrate with an existing hospital PACS to add iPad access for doctors without any major IT changes. Doctors can use this new interface so that they have the latest patient information including notes, images and complete patient files.

A recent article from AuntMinnie.com cited a new study that shows that Italian radiologists reviewing CT and MR images on smart phones were as accurate as those reading images from PACS workstations. However, it noted that reading from the smaller screen smart phones produced greater eye strain, indicating that the devices are probably best used for consulting rather than primary interpretation.
