SAN DIEGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--DR Systems (www.drsys.com), a recognized leader in healthcare imaging and information technologies, has announced the addition of a game-changing new capability to eMix™, its HIPAA-compliant, cloud-based medical information exchange platform. Now, patients and physicians can upload medical information – including large diagnostic imaging files – simply and securely with the click of a button that can be placed on any healthcare provider’s website.
The new eMix Secure Web Link upload capability provides unmatched speed and convenience combined with HIPAA-compliant security. Patients simply click on a clearly marked “Upload it Securely with eMix” button to upload images and other medical records. eMix automatically identifies and transmits all files to the designated recipient. All transmissions are protected by eight layers of security protection.
Seattle Children’s Hospital (www.seattlechildrens.org) has been an eMix customer since 2010. Adam Kielski, Director of Enterprise Imaging for the hospital, says that understanding the value of eMix is as simple as using it. “The ability to have patients or other healthcare facilities upload images directly through our website is a compelling proposition. Any individual – patient, doctor, or clinical staff – with web access will be able to use eMix to send us radiological images and files.”
Specialists such as orthopedists, neurologists, oncologists, and spine surgeons may see patients from referring providers in multiple care systems. Instead of waiting for film or files on CD or DVD from patients, those specialists can now simply put the eMix button on their websites so patients can easily and conveniently upload medical information and images via the HIPAA-compliant cloud solution. The receiving physician or facility can manage and view the images and files using the included web-based, zero-download viewer.
eMix is designed to be the core image exchange solution for medical facilities and physician practices. The cloud-based platform is currently used by hundreds of medical facilities nationwide to transmit over 15,000 images and related data files per month.
