USA, October 31, 2013—Ridgefield, CT—CoActiv Medical, the enterprise image and data management company, has been awarded a U.S. patent for its EXAM-SENDER® technology, which automatically transmits medical images, voice clips, reports and other patient information over the Internet to authorized users on remote PCs.
A specialized component of CoActiv’s EXAM-PACS® enterprise PACS, EXAM-SENDER shares data in full diagnostic quality without manual intervention and digitally alerts recipients when data has arrived.
The system is ideal for use with referring and consulting physicians as well as radiologists in offsite locations.
Its innovative technology is now covered under U.S. patent 8,510,169.
Taking advantage of state-of-the-art technology, EXAM-SENDER utilizes secure socket HTTPS web protocols and Department of Defense 256bit data encryption to assure data privacy and security.
It seamlessly integrates with CoActiv EXAM-PACS and is also available separately for integration into any existing PACS solution and also supports automatic, secure and encrypted transmission of non-radiology medical information.
EXAM-SENDER utilizes a proprietary technology to publish lossless, full-resolution images to a hospital’s CoActiv EXAM-SERVER™.
Files are then automatically delivered to the doctor’s remote desktop, eliminating the need for virtual private network (VPN) connectivity.
“CoActiv has long been in the vanguard of digital imaging technology,” says Frank Baker, CoActiv General Manager.
“Our new patent is just one more example of the company’s industry leadership.
EXAM-SENDER is part of a range of complementary leading edge exam sharing offerings.
CoActiv will maintain its industry leadership by introducing a broad spectrum of new features in its release of EXAM-PACS 3.0, which will debut shortly at RSNA 2013.”
