BLOOMINGTON, Minn., Nov. 29 Acuo Technologies, developers of high-performance medical image management software, data migration tools and services, today announced a new product offering called AcuoShare that allows image sharing across the networks of hospitals, clinics & affiliates.
The AcuoShare solution is based on the versatile Acuo Technologies DICOM Services Grid(TM) Software. The Acuo AcuoShare enables secure access from various PACS to medical images from sources throughout the healthcare enterprise, enabling system-wide efficiencies, improving access to critical medical imaging, quicker response time, and improved patient care.
AcuoShare is a simple and efficient solution that enables PACS Administrators at affiliated healthcare institutions to securely share medical imaging studies with authorized users. Whether for patient transfers, professional referrals, or study over-reads, images can be securely staged in a virtual drop box and made available to authorized PACS Administrators for retrieving and viewing.
AcuoShare leverages current VPN technology between institutions for secure access between sites. Included are the professional services required to install and configure the Acuo software, configure basic Tag Mapping functions, and provide system administrator training.
"We are excited to be able to offer this innovative capability to the marketplace. We have heard from many customers that there is a need to improve the current study distribution in the industry," said Jeff Timbrook, CEO of Acuo Technologies.
