Medweb Introduces Cross-enterprise Tele-consult/Teleradiology Integration into EMRs



Enhancements to Medweb’s Cloud PACS also extends a new scalable, IHE-compliant image archiving

San Francisco, CA – November 26, 2013 – Medweb announced today new enhancements to its core image exchange and cloud-based archiving services that enables users to integrate in real time teleradiology events into an electronic medical record (EMR) using standard HL7 and DICOM standards.

Medweb Exchange uses existing teleradiology consult implementations to create infinitely scalable systems so that facilities will also be able to share teleradiology consults across multiple enterprises using industry (and public?) standards.

Medweb Cloud PACS Service extends certified IHE compliant Image Archiving to all sizes of medical practices.

Medweb will demonstrate these new capabilities at the annual meeting of the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA), being held in Chicago December 1- 6, Booth # 5725.

Medweb Exchange utilizes the Medweb Clouds offering, which is now available as an integrated storage service giving clinicians a single resource that links to all image sources in their community.

In many cases, users will also be able to take advantage of DICOM message types such as IAN (Instance availability notification) to show how telemedicine consults can generate an automated billing event that is accepted by the hospital or clinic billing system.

“I have been very impressed with both Medweb’s product and the company,” says Jason McCormick, VP of Finance, Lower Valley Hospital Association.

“They provide cost-effective solutions to healthcare systems that allow them to grow revenues and improve the quality of care.

Medweb’s solutions connect off-site providers for various services and functions—with access from multiple locations, including Web access.

Their system provides solutions beyond PACS and telemedicine.”

The ONC (Office of the National Coordinator) has strongly endorsed the Public standards for cross enterprise document sharing or XDS architecture for health information exchanges, and its less technically challenging XDR or cross enterprise direct messaging architecture to push data from remote consult applications directly into the Electronic Medical Record (EMR).

Recent evolution of store and forward web video (webRTC) applications for low cost remote mental health consultations have begun to blur the line between real time telemedicine consultations, web based consultation, and the EMR.

Medweb successfully tested and was certified on 29 IHE Integration profiles, including Cross Enterprise Document and Image Exchange profiles to link offices, clinics, and hospitals across Health Information Exchanges, as well as conventional radiology workflow profiles.

At Medweb’s RSNA Booth #5725, attendees can learn how IHE compliance fits within telemedicine.

Profiles that will be demonstrated include: IHE Cross-Enterprise Document Sharing (XDS.b) and IHE Cross-Enterprise Document Sharing for Imaging (XDS-I.b), XDS b document repository, Image Manager Scheduled Workflow (SWF) and Patient Information Reconciliation (PIR) as well as comprehensive Clinical Document Repository (CDR) and Vendor Neutral Archives (VNA).
