February 13, 2017 — Vital Images Inc. announced that it will be demonstrating new image sharing capabilities for current Vital customers at the 2017 annual meeting of the Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS), Feb. 19-23 in Orlando, Fla. The solution allows users to share images from different types of media between providers, hospitals and patients.
“Image sharing capability is becoming a core expectation of an enterprise imaging architecture,” said Tim Dawson, vice president of technology at Vital Images. “The inefficient workflows tied to patients carrying CDs or clinicians having to physically go to different workstations are simply no longer acceptable. Too many studies are still being repeated due to missing or unavailable images at time of treatment, leading to added expense and radiation dose. “
Dawson said Vital’s DICOMweb-driven Vitrea Enterprise Viewer allows viewing of these image sets in almost any setting, and on any device.
