NucleusHealth™, advancing clinical practice and patient care through innovative medical image management and interpretation, has received U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) 510(k) clearance for its Nucleus.io technology.
Nucleus.io is a web-based, scalable and secure cloud platform for medical image management. At the core is patented streaming technology that provides diagnostic workstation performance in a web browser. Nucleus.io can improve collaboration and patient care via fast access to images, reduce IT overhead, is optimized for machine learning, and provides flexibility and customization through numerous RESTful APIs.
“We’re excited to bring our latest advance to today’s increasingly complex and demanding medical image management environment, where real-time provider access to medical images is critical,” said Claude Hooton, NucleusHealth President and Chief Operating Officer. “Nucleus.io redefines the entire imaging ecosystem and improves medical image workflow in a highly secure, accessible and reliable fashion – from ingesting, delivering, and viewing medical images to interpretation and storage.”
NucleusHealth plans to commercialize the new technology in Software as a Service (SaaS) modules and a Platform as a Service (PaaS) to allow the health care industry to take full advantage of cloud and streaming technologies without having to simultaneously decommission their current enterprise image management solutions. Initial modules include: cost-effective cloud storage of images with fast web retrieval of the data; seamless exchange of imaging studies between health systems, caregivers and patients; and a fully diagnostic, browser-based workstation for integration with EMR systems. In addition to the preliminary SaaS modules, if health systems or health care companies have clinical applications requiring the integration of medical images, they can benefit from deploying their applications on the Nucleus.io PaaS. NucleusHealth also plans to launch a fully cloud-based image management SaaS solution for health systems seeking to replace their aging picture archiving and communication system (PACS).
“Traditional enterprise medical image management systems can be problematic for hospitals, administrators and providers due to access, latency and cost,” said NucleusHealth Chief Technology Officer Chris Hafey. “The future of medical imaging is in the cloud, and the ability to access and manage images in a safe, secure, cloud-hosted environment is key to improving patient care and clinical workflow, and will be fundamental to reducing the escalating cost of delivering health care.”
NucleusHealth is advancing patient care through innovation in cloud-based medical image management, facilitating a global image exchange accessible by patients, physicians and health care networks. NucleusHealth licenses its software as a service (SaaS) and web-scale platform as a service (PaaS) technologies to health care organizations and companies across the globe.
