Storing data in the cloud has become mainstream practice for the public and for corporations. It allows users to store and share pictures, music, documents on a remote server that can be accessed by any authorized person on any device with internet access. It’s made a huge impact on our daily lives, and the technology hasn’t been lost on those in the healthcare industry.
Before the “cloud” concept took off, 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 could take multiple days (or more) to get results back to the patient. Web-based ultrasound imaging software completely removes the need for hard copies and transportation.
This not only helps save money on materials and transportation, but it also drastically improve turnaround time and streamlines the radiologist’s workflow.
With web-based ultrasound imaging, high quality medical images are delivered fast and appear in the web browser as soon as they’re downloaded. Study data is already populated into the report, reducing the chance for human error as well as reducing time spent having to transpose figures.
Additionally, voice recognition functionality can also be integrated to help complete the report quickly and thereby enhancing workflow even more.
