    The Future of Big Data

    Ask ten people what big data means and you get ten different answers. Nearly all will agree that it includes data sets that are so large in volume (terabytes to petabytes) or complex in nature that traditional data processing applications can’t be used. The one thing nearly everyone in healthcare will agree on is that...

    The Future of the Connected Healthcare System

    The future of connected healthcare is here today. End users evaluating a system want to know that they are taking a step forward, not backward, and that a system that works with everyone using standards to interconnect is the only way healthcare can meet its stated goals. Connected healthcare dates back to the late 1960’s...

    Improving Data Transfer & Viewing Experiences

    The fundamental image entry point into a medical imaging ecosystem must use a small footprint with efficient communication capabilities. Images need to be packaged and moved to their destination securely and quickly, leveraging the available bandwidth. When these images arrive, there can be no lag in unpacking and processing the data. Users need ac...

    DICOM Image Streaming – Perfected

    Interactive streaming of DICOM image objects into viewers is the fundamental operation driving a quality user experience in diagnostic image interpretation. Unintelligent sequential downloading of images one-by-one is the norm with most current PACS solutions. Physicians are forced and trained to live with sub-optimal performance. Consider CT/MR ty...

    A Decade of PICOM BrickStore™ – Cloud Storage Perfected

    Zero hardware failures and five nines of uptime after several millions of imaging exams and after several hundred terabytes of storage – it is a nice proof statement for the ingenuous architecture of BrickStore™ storage, developed and implemented by ScImage, at the PicomOnline (www.picomonline.com) Cloud PACS and healthcare image interoperability p...

    Critical Alerts Workflow Perfected with Hybrid Cloud

    Critical alerts workflow requires disseminating alerts via text messaging and email distribution and running a clinical imaging web portal that is exposed to users outside the firewall. Most institutions with IT departments do have proper infrastructure for text messaging and email distribution but are subjected to local domain and security restric...

    Cloud PACS Perfected

    Modern PACS is not just an independent imaging box anymore that can only do acquisition, storage and distribution of images. It needs to coexist and stay connected with rest of the workflow components of imaging service. The workflow starts with an ordering system, goes through various clinical components and activities and ends with result distrib...

    Adaptive MPI Translation For Multi-Site Image Exchange

    Patients visiting multiple specialists at multiple institutions are a common occurrence throughout the healthcare ecosystem that needs some special consideration from an information exchange perspective. When it comes to exchanging data, on the surface and under ideal conditions things may appear simple and straightforward. Institutions, however, f...

    The Power of Image Pointers in EMR

    A picture is worth a thousand words. Image pointers bring richness to EMR content. Whether it is physician to patient consultation or physician to physician consultation, images elevate comprehension to a higher level. Insertion of image pointers into an EMR may be a luxury for now but is fast becoming a necessity. In many institutions,...

    There’s More To Imaging Than Meets The Eye

    The modern healthcare paradigm demands location independence to bring imaging from anywhere, to radiologists at anyplace. New reimbursement models encourage “care teams” that share images and reports. Reimbursement reductions are forcing practices to extend service boundaries. Rethink your imaging strategy! PACS interoperability is the key to servi...

    Cardiology Imaging Strategy – For The CIO

    Imagine the backstage of a high school symphonic band concert, ten minutes before the start. This is how imaging modalities are playing together in many cardiology departments today. Interestingly, the larger the institution, the greater the fragmentation and chaos. Your experience sitting in the audience once the concert starts is much different. ...

    Do You Need A Black-Box VNA?

    that depends… If you are managing a larger institution, already invested in multiple imaging workflow solutions, it makes sense to invest in a single platform to store all your data. PICOM365 is an excellent option that provides VNA with built-in universal viewing. If you are managing a smaller institution, why waste money on a silo...

    Vendor Neutral ECG Management

    The healthcare IT community, in general, associates the notion of Vendor Neutral Archive (VNA) to imaging procedures with radiology imaging taking the center stage. What about ECG management? The number of ECG exams done are not much fewer when compared to the number of X-Ray exams begin completed. Like radiology exams, ECGs need to be acquired, in...
