Healthcare Imaging Strategies Not Exactly a Snap



Most healthcare providers are just in the early stages of forming a vendor-neutral enterprise imaging strategy that will handle everything from radiology DICOM images to photos, pathology slides, and ophthalmology images.

We anticipate being able to move beyond the Beta testing stage of our CapSure Cloud service in a few months. Once it is available, clinicians will be able to save any visible or non-visible light image to an EMR PACS. Digital images, whether captured by an x-ray or examination camera, are saved in DICOM format as well as MRIs, CT scans and ultrasounds within one integrated system. The beauty of our system is that as soon as images are uploaded to the PACS, an email is sent to a physician's smartphone alerting him or her that patient images are ready for viewing. If away from the office, the doctor can use a smartphone, iPad or Android tablet to access the images from a secure Web site.
