August 28, 2013 — Sorna Corp. released the SDS (Secure DICOM Share), a new and innovative feature of the eXpedo software suite. eXpedo with SDS enables healthcare facilities to send DICOM (digital imaging and communications in medicine) studies and reports directly from one site to another through eXpedo, utilizing the DICOM TLS Secure Transport Connection Profile.
“Hospitals can now securely send studies and reports straight to their referring base,” says Cyrus Samari, Sorna vice president of sales and marketing. “Additionally, sending sites can safely and rapidly distribute studies to partner institutions, reducing delays in receipt of time-sensitive information.”
Cost efficiency is a key benefit of eXpedo with SDS. The feature establishes a secure, direct connection with the receiving site, eliminating expenses associated with VPN hardware, setup and maintenance incurred by referring physicians. Also, the support of DICOM TLS by the OsiriX software for Apple computers ensures compatibility with eXpedo with SDS, thereby reducing the need for additional investments.
“With this feature added, facilities can utilize eXpedo to automatically share medical images and reports using any combination of CD production, cloud sharing, and/or Secure DICOM Share,” continues Samari. “eXpedo with SDS will submit jobs to any CD burner on your network, so your existing investment is protected.”
