InDex Web offers healthcare providers a fast, secure solution for transmitting digital medical images including ultrasound, MRI, CT, nuclear medicine and cardiology to radiologists, referring physicians and other peers.The InSiteOne solution, which meets HIPAA criteria (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act), is available around the clock and from any location. The InSiteOne Web application is hosted at Sprint’s Denver E|Solutions Center. There, the images are received from the InSiteOne RAID-based archive located on site at the hospital and sent over the Web to the requestor. InSiteOne also utilizes Sprint’s security services for data submitted via the healthcare provider’s virtual private network (VPN) through InDex Web. The digital images are then permanently archived at InSiteOne’s redundant data centers, which can be accessed for future use.“When a patient’s health is at stake, there is no substitute for secure, reliable and fast access to stored medical images,” said Vicki Warker, vice president of marketing, Sprint. “Sprint’s leading VPN and state-of-art hosting technologies meet these demands and provide endless possibilities to forward-thinking companies like InSiteOne.”InSiteOne’s InDex Web and InDex’ platform of archiving solutions work with DICOM-compliant (Digital Communications in Medicine) medical images for information sharing, retrieval, short-term storage, and long-term archiving.
