With the growing use of tablets by physicians in clinical settings, it’s important that we offer flexible solutions for viewing patients’ images.
Waltham, MA & Los Altos, CA (PRWEB) February 23, 2012
PatientKeeper® Inc., the leading provider of physician healthcare information systems, today announced a partnership with ScImage®, Inc., the enterprise imaging company, under which PatientKeeper will use ScImage’s PICOM™ Web platform to make medical images available to physicians within the PatientKeeper physician workflow environment running on Apple® iPads®.
For PatientKeeper, the new partnership offers a proven technical solution for integrating images from traditional DICOM sources, along with non-DICOM objects, from any vendor’s PACS into the PatientKeeper mobile platform. PatientKeeper provides physicians a single, integrated digital environment to streamline their clinical and administrative workflow, which can be accessed from any computer, as well as on popular smartphones and tablets.
For ScImage, the partnership with PatientKeeper adds a new distribution channel for its platform. At the center of ScImage's technology is PICOM, a web service technology that works independent of data types, modalities and departments to seamlessly deliver multi-modality image and information management, multi-PACS archiving, Cloud PACS services, offsite disaster recovery and telemedicine functionality.
“With the growing use of tablets by physicians in clinical settings, it’s important that we offer flexible solutions for viewing patients’ images,” said Paul Brient, PatientKeeper’s president and CEO. “PatientKeeper and ScImage share an overall philosophy to give physicians the best user experience possible in support of their workflow.”
“We are excited to work with PatientKeeper in setting a new standard to seamlessly deliver enterprise class data intensive imaging to various computing form factors,” said Sai Raya, Ph.D., founder and CEO of ScImage, Inc.
PatientKeeper demonstrated the integrated PACS viewing solution for physicians on the Apple iPad at its exhibit at HIMSS12 (booth #1045) in Las Vegas, Feb. 21-23.
