Heart IT and Johns Hopkins Medicine Announce the Award of NIH Grant to Include Images in the Nationwide Health Information Network (NHIN)
Date:11/30/2011

DURHAM, N.C., Nov. 30, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Heart IT, the global leader that pioneered the first FDA approved zero footprint medical imaging workstation and Johns Hopkins Medicine, announced the award of an NIH grant to enable the inclusion of medical images in the Nationwide Health Information Network (NHIN). The Nationwide Health Information Network (NHIN) is a federal initiative of the National Office of the Coordinator for Health Information Technology.

 

NHIN is being developed to provide a secure, nationwide, interoperable health information infrastructure that will connect providers, consumers, and others involved in supporting healthcare. This critical part of the national health agenda will enable health information to follow the consumer, be available for clinical decision making, and support appropriate use of healthcare information beyond direct patient care to improve health.

 

An ideal use of NHIN is the inclusion of medical images. According to the Government Accountability Office, 75% of all imaging procedures are performed outside of hospitals where PACS systems are practically non-existent. The smaller healthcare providers are simply not able to afford a PACS solution.  Cost is the top barrier to adopt health information technology. However, the NHIN requires a PACS to share medical images. This implies that the most medical images – 75% of them - will not be available. Therefore, it is clear that a cost effective imaging solution is paramount as it can provide PACS capabilities to those smaller providers that cannot afford it.

 

Heart IT has developed WebPAX®, a unique product that offers PACS capability via a "Software-as-a-Service" (SaaS) model through Web 2.0 technologies that allow any internet web browser to function as a medical imaging workstation without the need to install client software. This technology includes zoom/pan, movie controls distance
