eMed(R) Technologies Announces Affordable Wide Area PACS

Apr 24, 2001, 01:00 ET from eMed Technologies

    LEXINGTON, Mass., April 24 /PRNewswire Interactive News Release/ --
 eMed Technologies, a leader in medical image management and distribution
 systems, today announced the release of eMed Ideal Image Management (I.M.)
 version 5.1.1.  This software release gives radiologists the flexibility to
 access diagnostic and clinical information wherever their schedules take them.
     This new version features eMed Ideal WIDE Access(TM) that gives
 radiologists on-demand workflow with LAN-like performance over low bandwidth
 wide area network (WAN) circuits, including the Internet.  eMed's unique WIDE
 Access technology gives radiologists a seamless work environment across the
 business enterprise without compromising performance or requiring expensive
 networks or duplicate servers.
     To achieve system performance with most on-demand PACS solutions,
 radiologists have typically been confined to the high-bandwidth, local area
 network (LAN) of the hospital campus. "When you consider the workflow reality
 of most busy radiology groups, radiology services must span beyond hospital
 walls," comments eMed CEO Caren Mason, "Radiology staffing shortages are
 reaching critical levels. More than ever, radiology groups need smart
 solutions to better leverage the talent they have."
     eMed Ideal I.M. version 5.0 has offered an On-Demand PACS architecture to
 give radiologists instant access to all studies from any workstation in the
 enterprise. Now, the release of version 5.1.1 offers radiology groups this
 same workflow benefit at their remote locations as well. Whether radiologists
 are on-site at a hospital facility, or reading from a remote workstation, they
 are working on a single seamless system.  Both local and remote users are
 simultaneously accessing a centralized study list -- with immediate access to
 prior studies and reports -- and locking studies for workload sharing.
     "eMed is a PACS industry leader in the area of wide area and web-based
 communications expertise,"  Ms. Mason continues, "We are very excited to
 launch technology that makes Wide Area PACS a reality,  helping radiologists
 get out into the departments, outpatient facilities, and imaging centers where
 they are needed."
