March 26, 2012 — ScImage Inc. launched a new cloud electrocardiogram (ECG) management service as an extension of its PicomCloud cloud picture archiving and communications system (PACS) at the American College of Cardiology's (ACC) 61st Annual Scientific Session in Chicago.
ECG management is commonly deployed as an independent application in a client/server environment or in a self-contained Web server. For many facilities and private practices, the cost of implementing an ECG management system is difficult to justify based on modest reimbursement levels.
With PicomCloud, health care providers can have access to a full-featured ECG management system, including seven years of replicated storage, professional ECG editing tools and Web access for subsequent review for primary care providers, using a low-cost but predictable fee per ECG.
Rather than using typical PDF documents for Web distribution, ScImage has developed a platform independent foundation that renders ECG waveforms on the fly. This technology provides interactive investigation of rhythm and morphology with gain, speed, pan and caliper controls.
The company’s PICOM trademark denotes patient information and communication in medicine, which expands on the DICOM concept of digital imaging and communication in medicine.
