November 18, 2014 — Vital Images Inc. announced enhancements in image management to its VitreaView enterprise viewer with VioStream software. Today, many healthcare organizations are challenged to unify access to imaging content, often spread across a number of departmental picture archive and communication systems (PACS) and distributed locations. Vital is now offering building blocks which will enable full image access through electronic health records (EHRs).
VioStream is a server-side software product enabling a Web-based medical imaging viewer to connect to a variety of existing digital imaging and communications in medicine (DICOM) archives, convert DICOM data to Web-friendly formats, and view images at a substantially reduced time to first image. Traditional enterprise viewers require users to wait for a full query/retrieve to begin interacting with a study. VioStream eliminates obstacles toward accessing full imaging history of a patient, providing a longitudinal view of a patient's healthcare journey.
