InSite One, a provider of managed medical archiving, storage and disaster recovery patented services for the medical imaging market, releases new features for their patented InDex suite of services for DICOM and non-DICOM data at the 2008 HIMSS conference in Orlando, Fla.
The results are tools within InDex that facilitate managing the long-term storage and archive requirements for DICOM and non-DICOM objects for the EMR/EHR, according to the Wallingford, Conn.-based company. Core to these enhancements is the pathway to patient-centric object libraries and clinical information lifecycle management in a digital framework. Working within the IHE and its XDS-I definitions, the service provides for long-term storage of fixed data and protection for variable content file types, InSite One said.
Among the developments being highlighted by InSite One at HIMSS08 is the release of InDex 5.0 featuring:
- JPEG 2000 support allowing for compatibility and improved performance with third-party view stations;
- An enhanced transport layer that increases bandwidth utilization and reduces the effects of network latency; and
- Rapid recovery capabilities for faster return-to-operations.
“This newest set of tools reinforces the core benefit of the managed, patented InDex services and offers enhanced patient-centric methods for current and future data management needs,” said Paul Dandrow, executive vice president and chief operating officer of InSite One.
