MDexchange has signed a licensing agreement to embed California-based RealTimeImage's iPACS DICOM viewer and Web-based image streaming technology into MDexchange's software.
With main headquarters in Centerbrook, Conn., MDexchange develops software that gives clinicians access to patient information, while protecting patient confidentiality and proprietary clinical data. The agreement extends the products' capability to incorporate images into electronic medical records.
"Images are an important part of any medical record. To ensure performance, MDexchange needed a web-based viewer that could deliver high-quality images at an ultra-fast speed, whatever bandwidth the connection," said MDexchange CEO Brian Stone.
iPACS links any DICOM modality archive to any PC or DICOM workstation in the enterprise. Users also have secure access to global patient images at any time with an ordinary PC or internet connection.
