Spotlight on Telesonography, Telemedicine’s New Darling

This year, we’ve seen huge advances in telemedicine, including portable ultrasounds, personal health records, and digital imaging which make it easier and more affordable for patients in rural communities to receive immediate care. And what’s telemedicine’s new darling? The spotlight is on telesonography, which involves the acquisition of digital ultrasound images and related clinical data, their electronic transmission to a remote point, their interpretation by a specialist and the transmission of the interpretation. For those who live in remote areas, the concept of telesonography offers new avenues for accessing health services.

Microchip Technology could Revolutionize the Ultrasound

New ultrasound technology is currently being developed by Butterfly Network that could revolutionize ultrasound imaging in healthcare. The technology uses a new kind of ultrasound chip and the device could be the size of your smartphone showing a real-time moving, 3-D image. Not only would the device be simple to transport and use due to its size, but after it has been developed, it will also be incredibly cheap. According to Jonathon Rothberg, developer and entrepreneur, the device could be nearly “as cheap as a stethoscope” and will “make doctors 100 times as effective.”

Securing Medical Imaging in the Cloud [New Whitepaper]

Ask any clinician or patient who relies on access to diagnostic imaging, and they will tell you that it is a key component of the health record. Regardless of your organization’s size or specialty, reliable, quick, and universal access to clinically rich imaging data is essential across the entire care continuum. Therein lies the rub. The traditional way of managing information in departmentalized PACS is falling short. The closed loop design of these systems combined with data exchange on CDs and VPNs leaves much to be desired.

When properly deployed, new technology for storing and sharing data helps to overcome the challenges associated with traditional PACS architecture and point-to-point distribution methods. Cloud-based solutions for medical image management are specifically designed to make the process of storing and sharing data easier, more productive, and more accessible for administrators and physicians alike. While improving clinical and operational efficiencies is of upmost importance, in the medical world, security is where the rubber meets the road.

As new technology pushes aside traditional methods of sharing and storing data, one question remains: how is everything secured?
