Candelis and Microsoft Team Up to Empower Patients
Date:11/27/2011

CHICAGO, Nov. 27, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Candelis announced today that it has reached a definitive agreement with Microsoft (NASDAQ: MSFT) whereby Candelis' ASTRA cloud-hosted suite of services will provide for the secure transferring of patient digital medical images and studies to patients' Microsoft HealthVault accounts upon their request.

Microsoft HealthVault is a personal health application platform that lets consumers gather, store and share health information online.

These services benefit patients in a number of ways:

  • Patients can obtain control of, archive and easily access their medical images stored in HealthVault from any Internet connection.
  • Patients will have full control over their data and can grant access to family members or caregivers as they desire.  As an example, expectant couples can easily share Ultrasound images of their baby with loved ones.
  • Patients can avoid unnecessary duplicate imaging procedures and associated healthcare costs.

The connection of Candelis' ASTRA Services with the HealthVault platform also benefits healthcare providers in the following ways:

  • Access to past imagery can provide caregivers with more information to help improve patient care
  • Costly CD/DVD publishing and distribution can be eliminated

"Medical images are a critical component of a patient's health record," said Khan Siddiqui, M.D., principal program manager, Microsoft Health Solutions Group. "We're excited to work with Candelis to bring patients an easy solution for managing and sharing their personal medical images online. ASTRA's cloud-hosted image management services provide an efficient and vendor-agnostic image transport mechanism."
