Universal Viewer Allows Access to EMRs), HIE
Vital Images' VitreaView is a new universal viewer providing uniform access to all images within patient imaging. It is designed for access through the electronic medical record (EMR), electronic health record (EHR) and health information exchange (HIE). Vital Images is a Toshiba Medical Systems Group company.
The software utilizes next generation technology for image distribution through a zero-footprint and zero download viewing solution. Users can employ Web-enabled devices, including Windows or Mac-based systems, for review of DICOM and non-DICOM medical images. This gives clinicians’ unrestricted access through the EMR, EHR or HIE to all patient imaging.
Additionally, IT administrators can leverage virtualization for deployment along with VitreaView’s ability to manage access to multiple databases, thus providing a universal imaging layer at an enterprise level.
The system is also designed to eliminate the need to integrate disparate image viewing portals, substituting a single, standardized imaging layer for referring clinicians. This allows administrators to move away from managing disparate departmental imaging solutions and provide access through a consolidated universal viewer.
The system received 510(k) clearance from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in August 2011.
