April 1, 2016 — ScImage will launch PicomSentry, a preconfigured appliance that enables users to utilize ScImage’s PICOM365 Enterprise PACS (picture archiving and communication system) with plug-and-play convenience, at the 2016 American College of Cardiology (ACC) annual scientific session, April 2-4 in Chicago.
Once connected to the customer’s internal network, PicomSentry can be remotely configured by ScImage’s technical implementation team and replaces traditional server or gateway hardware. Enabling the secure acquisition and transfer of DICOM and non-DICOM objects, patient studies, reports and HL7 messaging can be securely transferred to and from Picom365 Cloud PACS and the local site using PicomSentry.
Offering efficient interoperability for tele-cardiology reading capabilities, PicomSentry supports all diagnostic disciplines including echo, obstetrics, orthopedics, electrocardiograms (ECG), vascular, radiology and other -ologies.
ScImage employs a variety of security technologies and procedures to help customers protect their data from unauthorized access. ScImage utilizes secure proprietary communication protocols, and data transferred to and from PicomCloud is secured with AES 1024-bit encryption. Additionally, PicomSentry is protected with BitLocker hard drive encryption to prevent the data from being compromised if the device is lost or stolen.
“PicomSentry is a miniature security appliance for the Picom365 Cloud PACS infrastructure, designed to help small to medium practices with limited IT resources by removing the need for customers to supply and configure hardware. Providing full PACS functionality, PicomSentry gives plug and play access to an image enabled EMR to safely manage imaging procedures and provide efficient diagnostic reporting and report dissemination. PicomSentry can also be used in a secure hospital environment to simplify the process of posting studies to Picom365 for image sharing and archiving,” said ScImage’s founder, Sai Raya, Ph.D.
