Konica Minolta AeroDR Achieves Compliance with FIPS 140-2 Security Standard for DoD and VA Facilities

Jul 20, 2015, 15:59 ET from Konica Minolta Medical Imaging

WAYNE, N.J., July 20, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Konica Minolta Medical Imaging announced today that the AeroDR wireless flat panel detector is now compliant with the Federal Information Processing Standard (FIPS) Publication 140-2, a U.S. Government security standard that is required by the Department of Defense and Veterans Affairs healthcare facilities for all wireless communications. The FIPS 140-2 standard is an information technology security accreditation program for hardware and software solutions used in U.S. government departments and industries, such as the VA hospitals, that collect, store, transfer and disseminate sensitive but unclassified information. The compliance covers the family of AeroDR flat panel detectors and the CS-7 control station.

"With this compliance, VA hospitals can now implement any of our AeroDR wireless flat panel detectors and be assured that any patient data transmitted through our system meets one of the most stringent security standards that exists today," says Guillermo Sander, Senior Product Manager Digital Radiography, Konica Minolta Medical Imaging.

AeroDR transmits patient imaging data wirelessly, which can help improve workflow and clinical productivity by enabling near real-time access to patient images. The absence of a cable facilitates patient positioning and makes it an ideal solution for portable X-ray applications.

According to Sander, "This key landmark delivers on our commitment to Primary Imaging Solutions and the veteran community."  The first fully functional FIPS 140-2 solution was implemented and tested at a VA facility in Dayton, Ohio.
