Infinitt North America, a PACS company, has launched Infinitt Smart-NET, an application service provider (ASP) version of PACS that allows physician practices to go filmless.
The Infinitt-hosted ASP solution includes an unlimited user license, so images can be distributed to referring doctors without additional cost to the specialist or surgeon, and the referrer only needs a web portal, according to the Phillipsburg, N.J.-based company.
"We provide an Infinitt Smart-NET Relay Station that enables modality connectivity and transmission of images over the internet. The Smart-NET Relay provides data encryption and fast image compression that allows images to be uploaded quickly,” said David Smarro, president and CEO of Infinitt.
The company said the system can also include:
- An interface to a RIS, HIS, EMR or practice management system;
- Embedded capabilities such as dictation, transcription and CD burning; and
- An optional caching server for local storage.
