Medical Image Management | iConnect Share

By: Efilm  09-12-2011

Patient images are critical to the care process, for both diagnosis and long-term treatment. Currently, images are most commonly transmitted via patient-borne CDs, which are often unreadable, leading to duplicate studies, delays in care, unnecessary radiation, and increased medical costs. The challenges of eradicating CDs are high. Each receiving department and facility may use different imaging systems, which can lead to DICOM compatibility issues that prevent specialists from being able to read the image.

As a component of the iConnect suite, Merge iConnect Share is an image gateway that enables VPN-free exchange of images across enterprises and referral networks, eliminating the need for patient-borne CDs. Used by referring physicians as well as in-house specialists, iConnect Share enables outside studies to be selectively viewed and stored in a local environment, regardless of the source system, location or format.

Merge iConnect Share provides seamless receipt of images across a referral network and enables organizations to access current and historical images, provide faster time to treatment, increase referrals and leverage existing investments.
