FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Annapolis, MD - March 2, 2015 – Today, Purview announced its delivery of Purview ViTATM, an innovative and secure web-based patient consult platform. The platform provides a HIPAA-compliant, secure environment for quick and efficient sharing of complete patient medical records, including their medical images, with experts at health care facilities across the world, without having to penetrate secure firewalls or other restrictive technology. This platform is a result of the joint collaboration between Purview and Baltimore, MD-based PinnacleCare to support remote consults with healthcare providers for expert medical opinions on diagnosis and treatment options.
The ViTA platform addresses the challenges associated with collection, organization, and collaborative review of patient records when consulting with top specialists for expert medical opinions and second opinion services. ViTA enables PinnacleCare to more easily aggregate medical images, patient medical history, and associated physician notes from multiple providers into one universal medical record to support physician collaboration for diagnosis and treatment recommendations and share these with leading healthcare providers.
"Our clients depend on us to provide high-touch and expert guidance for healthcare challenges that may arise anywhere in the world," said Dr. Miles Varn, Chief Medical Officer of PinnacleCare. "With the ViTA platform, we have overcome the delays and restrictions that were imposed by systems that either did not work or were often hindered by firewalls at our consulting hospitals."
Integration of the Purview ViTA secure cloud and the newly designed web interface is an efficient way to deliver a comprehensive view of a medical record, wherever and whenever it is needed via any viewing platform available to the physician.
"We work with the leading healthcare specialists and institutions throughout the world,” continues Varn. “It is imperative that we provide timely and expert service to both our patients and our consulting physicians. The ViTA platform supports our ability to do just that."
