Horos, a free medical image viewer for Mac computers, is used around the world due by over half a million (500,000) users in over 170 countries due to its powerful capabilities, ease of use, and free price point. Clinicians, researchers, students, and even IT professionals can easily handle medical images in a powerful viewer moments after downloading the program. With all of that in mind, what obstacles do Horos users run into that lead them to seek a purpose-built solution like Purview?
Over the years, we've worked with countless imaging facilities, radiologists, researchers, and other experts to share medical records electronically with Purview Image™. Their feedback has provided invaluable insight into ways we can continuously improve on the Purview Image ™ solution. Some of our users have discussed gaining even greater efficiencies by sharing multiple image studies of a patient in one electronic link or email at a time.
This week, we are covering exactly that - the Purview Image™ multi-share feature! Learn how you can reduce the number of steps it takes to grant someone access to a case with multi-study sharing.
Over the past decade, we've found that the amount of medical images and other records that are being shared electronically has exponentially increased from a combination of improved cloud computing capabilities and the market's desire for data mobility. The 2020 pandemic spurred further innovation and adoption, as physicians and patients all over the world required digital solutions to function. As the adoption of electronic sharing grows, both physicians and patients benefit from increased access to medical records and reduced lead time. There are a few ways to share studies electronically, but some are more efficient than others.
Physicians wear many hats, including serving as educators and researchers. Since medical images can be invaluable during presentations, Purview Image™ is often used by these physicians and their staff to collect, store, and access cases for subsequent review. Purview Image™ has also been used by large health systems to conduct major research initiatives because the platform easily grants users the ability to collaborate remotely and securely back up files within a HIPAA compliant, cloud-based system.
