Purview’s solutions offer clients the possibility of accessing critical medical information remotely, from anywhere with an internet connection, at any time. The cloud-based solutions, Purview Image, and Expert View can be implemented in practices to store and manage both patient studies and patient cases, respectively. Because of the sensitive nature of the protected health information (or PHI) shared and stored in the Purview solutions, we have implemented multiple safety and security measures to keep you and your patients safe.
Is it possible for cloud PACS software to crash and lose all medical data? Before answering this question, it’s important to understand that no one can guarantee absolute security. An impenetrable system does not exist. However, you should consider the security measures in place from any PACS vendor that you are considering using to protect yourself and your patient's protected health information (PHI).
For years, medical practices have been distributing patient records back and forth via email. So you may ask yourself, “if it's not broke, why fix it?” Well... it actually is broken. Apart from being an inefficient way to distribute large files, refusing to invest in a secure platform to send and receive sensitive data can cost your practice more than money.
