I-MED releases iOS apps
The I-MED Network has released a pair of iOS diagnostic image apps for doctors that referring patients to the group’s practices in Queensland and Tasmania. I-MED are touting the ‘I-MED Online Queensland’ and ‘I-MED Online Regional Imaging’ apps as the first of their kind in their respective states, having previously deployed a similar solution in Western Australia.
Launching the Queensland app, I-MED Network CEO Mark Masterson said, "We have invested significantly in this new technology to help provide increased flexibility to doctors and we believe the introduction of the I-MED Online Queensland app will help them better manage urgent patient cases and put treatment plans in place faster."
The apps are free to download from the iTunes store, however login details are required before any of the software’s functionality is made available to the user.
Once authenticated, doctors are able to access diagnostic images including MRI, CT, ultrasound and x-ray, along with a patient’s imaging history.
The imaging group states that the app will be particularly useful for referring doctors who practice at a number of clinics, and will also have applicability in scenarios where multiple doctors, potentially working from multiple locations, wish to view images simultaneously.
I-MED Network General Manager Queensland, Justin Mottram, said, "Prior to the introduction of this app, doctors had to be at their primary office or computer terminal in order to receive and access patients’ diagnostic scans. If a doctor is on call, out of the office, or moving between facilities, they can now get instant access to new patient results and determine how and when action needs to be taken. In critical or urgent cases, this could help save lives."
"We have ensured the app is extremely secure with patient privacy maintained at all times," he added.
