FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Annapolis, Maryland - September 8, 2018 – Purview announced today its Australia-based cloud is now available for commercial use, enabling the secure storage, archive, access and sharing of medical images within the country. By establishing cloud storage via a datacenter in Sydney, private health information stored with Purview complies fully with The Federal Privacy Act 1988, as amended by the Privacy Amendment (Enhancing Privacy Protection) Act 2012 and its Australian Privacy Principles (APPs), as well as State and Territory storage requirements. With this compliance, Purview is able to host private medical data of Australian patients, providing healthcare professionals with greater mobility and better storage and accessibility.
“We’ve invested locally in Australia by establishing this datacenter both to service our existing base of clients who prefer the cloud to local (onsite) storage, as well as to serve this important market which has few alternatives,” said Josh DeBartolo, President of Purview. “We continue to address an increasing demand for cloud medical image storage in the country.”
Purview’s cloud provides physicians and veterinarians with a seamless way to capture, access, archive, report on and share medical images anytime, anywhere. Its web-based viewer is registered as a Class I Medical Device that can be used for primary diagnosis. The viewer works on any device with a browser, including tablets and smartphones, freeing the medical professional from being tethered to their desk in order to view images.
Purview is quickly establishing itself as the standard for sharing, accessing and archiving medical images around the world, with clients on five continents. Many Australian healthcare professionals have already found their practices enhanced by the mobility and quality that Purview’s services provide:
“Purview has enabled us to deliver great imaging solutions to our clients,” said Jason Home, owner of Premium Technology located in Brisbane, a local partner of Purview.
“I’ve been using a Purview solution for my private practice for the last two years,” said Dr. and Prof. Kenneth Cutbush, a specialist orthopaedic surgeon practicing exclusively in shoulder surgery. “Purview has given us a fast, reliable and effective imaging solution. My patients’ scans are now available to me wherever I am operating.”
“The ability to access images from anywhere, even in remote locations, is critical for me,” said Dr. Licina of SpinePlus. “I am able to access them in the operating room or even when I need them at a conference.”
Purview solutions scale with any organization. From the single physician practice to the multi-locations outpatient radiology or urgent care clinics, Purview solutions can fit almost any size practice with any number of viewing workstations.
