CHICAGO, Nov. 30, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Nautilus Medical Inc. today announced worldwide availability of MatrixRay, its next-generation Radiology Image Management platform (www.matrixray.com). The release of MatrixRay to the entire medical healthcare market was announced from RSNA 2015 (Radiology Society North America) in Chicago - the largest Radiology conference in the U.S.
MatrixRay is the first device-independent radiology platform that enables access to radiology studies worldwide via a peer-to-peer exchange network of physicians and other clinicians. The MatrixRay platform is the first true clean-slate design for the modern era of radiology, offering many industry firsts, including: Unlimited free client download and unlimited free support; Self-installing; Pay-per-use; Peer-to-peer network image sharing; Intuitive user interface. Finally, with MatrixRay, all constituents - providers, patients, insurers, data analysts, clinical researchers, educators and students - will have access to radiology studies and data, free of encumbrances previously imposed by constrained traditional platforms. Fully HIPAA-compliant and providing imaging platform interoperability, MatrixRay drives down provider and payer costs, increases access, empowers care givers and patients, eliminates errors, and guarantees data security.
MatrixRay offers full compliance with the global DICOM file format standard, eliminates the need for CDs and film, and enables nearly instantaneous sharing of studies regardless of global locale or technology. MatrixRay lowers costs for all constituents – providers, payers, and patients. It avoids liabilities associated with rescans, and, most importantly, is designed to improve diagnoses, treatments and outcomes.
Tim Kelley, CEO and founder of Nautilus, in attendance at RSNA commented: "Nautilus is already a market leader with over 500 installs including over 30 of the top 50 U.S. hospitals. Many institutions have employed cloud exchange systems and have not realized security or savings. We saw an opportunity to dramatically improve our market-leading offering and help hospitals from getting soaked by current cloud systems. So we designed MatrixRay as a clean-slate architecture with the goal of improving health care and saving lives. We took our time to make sure we got it right. MatrixRay took over four years from concept to completion. My team is so proud of MatrixRay. We really believe we have the opportunity to improve how radiology is applied. Now there is a radiology image management solution that matches the incredible capabilities of today's digital imaging systems, while also giving end-users a tool that is as convenient and inexpensive as iTunes, and as intuitive as any app. In fact, we are so confident in MatrixRay that we provide a one million dollar guarantee of data security. MatrixRay is designed for today's market: It creates an incredible world-wide network of physicians, and a big-data repository that will be unprecedented in medicine, enabling data analytics that will continue to improve diagnoses, treatments and outcomes for decades to come. We hope everyone in healthcare who reads this announcement will take a moment to download MatrixRay for free to see what our amazing team has accomplished."
Bob Susskind, Silicon Valley veteran, consultant, investor, and former investment banker now with Kriss Partners Inc. (KPI), has been working with Nautilus as an advisor and consultant since 2007. He commented: "When one has seen or been part of designing and implementing as many software- and Web-based products and services as I have going back to the stone ages of the industry, one becomes quite jaded. I have to say, I have not seen anything that is a true solution for a major industry segment for many years. MatrixRay is that exception. Nautilus has built the next-generation platform for Radiology Image Management and has solved all the major challenges that have existed in this space for decades. MatrixRay will become the industry standard and will be the reference solution for other segments of healthcare. Congratulations to Tim and the entire Nautilus team."
Michael James, Former SVP Accredo Health Inc. and investor in and advisory board member of Nautilus Medical noted: "I have been involved with Nautilus from day one, and their team and market execution is impressive. We have always believed in the vision of improving health care and saving lives, and MatrixRay is emblematic of realizing that vision."
Dr. Nora Janjan, Radiation Oncologist (University of Texas, MD Anderson Cancer Center) "MatrixRay is a major technological advance in the growing concern of medical image exchange"
