Vendor Offers Free Digital Transfer Service for Archive X-Rays

February 5, 2014 — Bayland Digital offers free film digitizing of X-rays, CTs, MRIs, ultrasounds, mammograms and other medical films. This process can save money while also freeing up space for other hospital resources and preserving medical imagery. 
"Bayland's free film scanning and digitizing service is beneficial for everyone involved," said Rudy NematZadeh, founder of Bayland Digital. "Patients enjoy having access to high-quality, digital images of all prior X-rays and scans, and doctors enjoy being able to give their patients a new level of convenience in the form of instantly available imagery. Meanwhile, hospitals save money when they don't have to produce and subsequently archive traditional medical film.
"X-ray films, for instance, releases significant toxins when left to decompose in a landfill. We strip out the polyester and silver from medical film to make for recycling purposes," NematZadeh said about the ecological aspect digitizing film. 
Bayland Digital arranges for any volume of film to be packed and shipped. 
Bayland Digital uses only U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved Vidar medical film scanners, and adheres to HIPPA guidelines when handling of sensitive information. The company shreds all paper records associated with each set of film, unless the client requests otherwise. Scanned files are created in a searchable DICOM format and given to clients in fully licensed PACS storage servers that are guaranteed to work with any PACS or EMR system. 
"Everything we're doing is part of an effort to support the conversion from analog to digital while reducing needless expenditures for our clients, their patients and everyone else who is affected by the physical, logistical, administrative, HR and financial deadweight associated with outdated or traditional archiving," NematZadeh said. "Our solution eliminates the need for film storage, retrieval service fees, per-scan costs and more."
