SeeMyRadiology.com introduces at the Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS) conference this week an extended Web API (application programming interface) for its popular Internet-based, real time medical image sharing platform. The first of its kind in the healthcare IT industry, the new interface provides secure access to all functionality and data within the site and offers third party developers broad possibilities to integrate and leverage the power of SeeMyRadiology.coms image management and sharing capabilities within their applications.
From uploading and archiving image files and related data to exam viewing and sharingall advanced SeeMyRadiology.com functionalities can now be integrated seamlessly into other server- or cloud-based systems. For example, a full range of features can be embedded in an electronic health record (EHR) or patient health record (PHR) to enable image viewing or sharing with authorized users over the Internet. A hospital system or health information exchange (HIE) can integrate the technology into disparate PACS solutions to facilitate image communications across all member facilities.
Individual imaging sites also can integrate the technology with other radiology management tools to share exams on-the-fly as needed–for example for trauma transfer cases. Any medical facility can easily enable secure patient image access. In fact some of the most widely used patient health record (PHR) platforms have already integrated SeeMyRadiology.com to deliver a more complete image-enabled health record.
SeeMyRadiology.com is already deployed throughout the U.S. as a platform for image exchange among medical facilities, physicians and patients and demonstrates the value of cloud computing in these applications, said Arman Sharafshahi, President of Accelarad. With this new sophisticated and complete API, other vendors can now easily integrate imaging technology to round out their own functionality and enable image sharing throughout their solutions. Moreover, he notes, hospital IT staff can be confident that our platform will support integration with existing and future healthcare IT systems.
SeeMyRadiology.com is a unique web portal that enables doctors as well as patients, wherever located, to upload images to a cloud environment and grant immediate access to these studies to any user on-the-fly. Images may be downloaded into the receiving facilitys PACS, if desired, or simply managed in the cloud. SeeMyRadiology.com is robust, affordable, flexible and easy-to-use and is setting the standard for Internet-based image sharing today.
SeeMyRadiology.com, an Accelarad venture, is an online community for medical image exchange that is revolutionizing how imaging facilities, physicians, and patients store, share, and access medical images and reports. Via a cloud computing platform, SeeMyRadiology.com allows for easy collaboration and communication among health care providers and patients, dramatically improving access, costs, speed, and mobility of medical image exchange throughout the continuum of care.
