CONi from GlobalMed makes images accessible to iPads, Android tablets and smartphones

LAS VEGAS--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- GlobalMed – the industry leader in real-time healthcare delivery systems – is introducing CONi™, an enterprise-wide cloud solution that delivers visible and invisible light medical images to any computer, tablet or smartphone wherever there is Internet connectivity. GlobalMed’s ground-breaking new service will be unveiled today at the HIMSS 2012 Conference and Exhibition in Las Vegas.

“This is the kind of access clinicians have been waiting for,” said GlobalMed Managing Director Joel E. Barthelemy. “Now, physicians will be able to view their patients’ medical images whenever and wherever they are, as soon as they become available.”

“CONi represents freedom,” said Richard L. Nevins, M.D., FAAFP, GlobalMed Chief Medical Director. “It allows content to be accessed remotely on handheld devices for clinical decision-making in a timely manner.”

Once the DICOM format images are uploaded to the cloud, CONi can notify a clinician’s smartphone that they are ready for viewing. After connecting to the CONi Picture Archiving Communication System (PACS) and selecting a study, the CONi Viewer allows the physician to zoom in or zoom out, brighten or darken the image, increase or decrease contrast, even play a series of images. This can be done with finger-pinch, swipe and other touchscreen controls on an iPad or iPhone.

CONi allows a physician to enter a SOAP Report that can be saved for later modification or “Finished” and placed into the patient’s medical record. Once finished, the doctor’s notes cannot be altered or deleted.

Patients and their guests can be given passcode access to their medical images with a limited amount of information. The images are never resident on computers or mobile devices for security and patient confidentiality.
