TeraMedica Lauded in KLAS Enterprise Imaging Report…

Vendor Neutral Imaging Leader Named ‘Pioneer in the VNA Market’ (July 10th, 2012 - MILWAUKEE, WI) TeraMedica, Inc., the leader in vendor neutral enterprise image management, has been recognized as a significant player in the Vendor Neutral Archive space by KLAS (www.KLASresearch.com).  KLAS’ report, Enterprise Imaging 2012: Provider Strategies and Insights, was released in June. KLAS provides this reasoning behind the need for a VNA (as given by a provider who responded to the survey): “We cannot continue to just store our images on PACS products. The risk is too great. Vendor neutral archiving must be done. We must manage the images, not just store them.” KLAS cites TeraMedica as “one of the pioneers in the VNA market.”  According to the report, TeraMedica is one of the few vendors that offer VNA functionality that has been shown to work well with many different imaging solutions.  In addition, early trends hint toward favorable enterprise DICOM management, with several clients also starting to leverage the ability to store other clinical content in its native format. With the growing number of PACS replacements, the utilization of a VNA as a strategy is picking up steam.  Twenty-seven percent of the providers interviewed indicated that a VNA would be central to their enterprise imaging strategy, especially for hospitals over 500 beds. The Enterprise Imaging2012: Provider Strategies and Insights report also notes that TeraMedica’s “technology enables customers to predict and manage storage costs… [with the ability] to store DICOM and non-DICOM data in native formats.” “As one of the founders of the Vendor Neutral archive space, TeraMedica is honored to be named as a ‘pioneer in the VNA market’ by KLAS,” said Jim Prekop, President of TeraMedica.  “Our technology has been around since 2001, when it was developed by clinicians and physicians at the Mayo Clinic.  Our VNA is scalable, flexible and adaptable for any clinical department.” TeraMedica was among the top 2 vendors regarding KLAS verified storage numbers (in terabytes) for both average and peak storage among all healthcare provider respondents (per Figure 6 of report). About TeraMedica,® Inc. TeraMedica, Inc., a global healthcare informatics company based in Milwaukee, is the leading provider of vendor neutral, enterprise-wide solutions for unrestricted medical image management.  The company was launched in 2001 with the successful development of a cross-departmental, patient-centric clinical image archive for the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, MN.  To date, TeraMedica has over 600 customer-driven deployments on six continents.  Such flexibility can be achieved only by an organization that is committed to exceeding customer expectations using a technology platform that has been designed for adaptation.  For more information, visit www.TeraMedica.com.

ETIAM Reaches 80 Million Image Mark…

Secure Medical Networking Technology Facilitates Landmark Number of Image Exchanges ETIAM, Cambridge, MA – May 30, 2012 – ETIAM, the medical image connectivity company, this month reached an important milestone with 80 million images exchanged worldwide using its Secure Medical Networking technology.  The ETIAM network enables exchange of 40,000 studies per year between institutions and transmission of 100,000 studies each year to radiologists working at home. “Our 80 million figure represents only images actually communicated to recipient sites and not those simply sent to cloud storage,” notes Antoine Samson, Director of Operations at ETIAM.  “ETIAM ultra-secure image storage architecture bypasses the cloud with no need for external image storage.” The company has recently achieved additional notable statistics, including 1.5 million CDs imported to PACS using the ETIAM technology during the past five years or an average of about 450,000 CDs annually.  It also now counts more than 100 hospitals worldwide using its advanced technology to share images, documents, reports and related healthcare data. ETIAM solutions are deployed in more than 2,000 healthcare enterprises worldwide including such prestigious institutions as Johns Hopkins, Cleveland Clinic, Duke, Mayo Clinic, UCSF and Yale. “These numbers reflect the growing recognition of how important the ability to share images and other information rapidly and efficiently across healthcare boundaries has become in the modern healthcare age,” says Bernard Hervault, Vice President of Teleimaging for ETIAM.   “When seconds count in an emergency medical procedure, all the benefits of today’s advanced medical expertise and technologies depend on how fast diagnostic information reaches the point of care.  Additionally, remote consults, second opinions and collaboration on cases are playing increasingly important roles in healthcare and images must be sent efficiently and securely to facilitate this.” ETIAM‘s Secure Medical Networking technology, which accomplishes this, encompasses a range of products.  The newest offering, ETIAM-Connect, is the fastest solution for electronically sharing medical images and associated clinical data among institutions securely over the internet.  It is based on ETIAM’s Secure Medical Networking technology which has been deployed for three years in various configurations.  To use the system, images are uploaded to a Web Gateway and transmitted over a secure point-to-point connection, bypassing the ordinary cloud.  Within the hospital, images are automatically routed right to the point of care. ETIAM-Connect automatically identifies exam type, directs information to the appropriate department, enables viewing of any image format and reconciles patient data with in-house identifiers. ETIAM also offers a range of related products designed to manage studies from beyond the enterprise as well as to communicate internal information to other facilities. According to Georges Le Goualher, Vice President of Marketing for ETIAM, one of the major uses for ETIAM-Connect is emergency department transfers, and transfers of stroke patients in particular. “Using ETIAM-Connect, images arrive at the operating room (OR) well in advance of the patients so that preparations can begin well before the transfer occurs,” he says.  “Alternatively, images would be sent on CD along with the patient, delaying an emergency procedure.” Sharing expertise across the enterprise through tele-consultations is another major benefit of the system. ETIAM technology is frequently relied upon for consultations on oncology and stroke cases, as well as electro-encephalography with associated video of premature infants and care of the elderly.   It also is used for second opinions, following the results of therapy delivered at another institution. Exemplifying the use of ETIAM technology is a new national healthcare project underway in France, the Infant Santé or Children’s Good Health program.  For this program, ETIAM will create a national DICOM internet network allowing imaging data to be transmitted among imaging departments of the centers involved in pediatric cancer management. “Children’s cancers are relatively rare diseases and therefore frequently require expert opinions at regional, national and even sometimes international levels,” explains Eric Le Bihan, President of ETIAM Group.  “The sharing of medical images has become mandatory to provide specialized expertise and the highest level of care.  ETIAM provides the secured networks that are needed to accomplish this efficiently, affordably and safely.” ETIAM Corp.

Sectra First Out in The UK With XDS-Based Sharing …

May 15 - Cross-enterprise sharing of images and information that is independent of radiology IT solution (RIS/PACS) and enabled by an XDS framework, has now become a reality for hospitals in Northern Ireland. This is the first XDS solution to be deployed and now live in the UK. Accordingly, patient-related radiology data will always be available at the point of care, irrespective of patient location, thus further improving quality of care.
