At ATA2011, watch GlobalMedia’s Image Automation System acquire patient images and save them to a Picture Archiving and Communications System with CONi Services
SCOTTSDALE, Ariz.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Taking visible light patient images and saving them to an enterprise-wide Picture Archiving and Communications System (PACS) often requires a lengthy process that is fraught with opportunities to violate HIPAA compliance. GlobalMedia’s CapSure® Image Automation System, teamed with its CONi™ Services application, reduces the required steps to just three. To prove it, GlobalMedia staff will perform live demonstrations in Booth #717 at the 2011 American Telemedicine Associations (ATA) Annual Conference in Tampa, Florida, May 1-3.
Visitors can watch as a “patient” session is opened, an image is acquired and then saved to a PACS to show just how simple and secure the process can be. See a preview video by clicking here. Demonstrations will be conducted at various times throughout the three-day show to be held at the International Meeting and Exposition at the Tampa Convention Center.
The CapSure Image Automation System is GlobalMedia’s answer to “store and forward” software. It allows providers to acquire high-resolution digital images and share them live and/or save them for review or consultation at a later date. Using CapSure, clinicians have the ability to annotate images, measure areas in images down to millimeters and draw on them. Whatever is added to the image, including Location and Time/Date Stamp, is saved in Digital Imaging and Communications in Medicine (DICOM) format with its own unique filename when using CONi Services. At the end of a patient session, this intelligent application preserves selected images in a PACS, and then automatically removes all data and image remnants from the originating computer for security and HIPAA compliance.
“By reducing unnecessary processes in the acquisition of visible light images, Pathology, Dermatology, ear nose and throat, the CapSure and CONi solutions increase patient safety and the clinician’s workflow,” said Joel E. Barthelemy, Managing Director of GlobalMedia. He added, “This is a good example of what healthcare reform can look like.”
