Storing data in the cloud has become mainstream practice for the public and for corporations. September 01, 2012
GE Healthcare in combination with Core Sound Imaging’s web-based ultrasound reporting solution, Studycast®, provided free screening echocardiograms to over 1,000 people in rural India in just 2 days, setting a Guinness Book World Record 555 Doppler studies performed in 24 hours!
How did the team of cardiologists manage to screen and diagnose so many people in such a short amount of time? Before the “cloud” concept became affordable and accessible by healthcare providers, mobile radiologists would have to burn ultrasound images onto CDs and videos, and then physically get in their car and drive or mail them to the reading physician. The process would take multiple days (or more) to get results back to the patient...Reading physicians require fast access to patient information. A web-based solution significantly improves an imaging center's ability to process and share these diagnostic tests and medical studies.
Rather than waiting 2-10 days to see the results of a diagnostic test, web-based solutions allow reading physicians to receive and access the reports immediately and automatically. Reading physicians who use web-based diagnostic testing and imaging can complete interpretations any time on any computer with internet access. This means greater flexibility for the specialist and a faster turnaround time for the referring physician.
Health care systems in India, the U.S. and around the world are under enormous pressure to improve efficiency and quality of care while reducing costs...This can put a strain on already tight medical budgets. A web-based diagnostic testing solution eliminates the need for an expensive in-house IT department.
Studycast is the leader in mobile ultrasound imaging and diagnostic testing...To learn more about Studycast web-based medical imaging solutions please visit their website at http://www.corestudycast.com or call (919) 277-0636.
