The people over at VitusVet “love pets and believe in advocating for them because they can’t speak for themselves”. If you haven’t heard of them before, VitusVet is a thought leader in the veterinary industry truly providing patient driven solutions. Their product features a mobile app that any veterinarian or pet parent can access. Not only can veterinarians share patient images with specialists, the pet parent can then show those images to any veterinarian in the world to get a second opinion.
If you’re in the veterinary space, you’ve probably heard of Epica. If you haven’t, then you have come to the right place! The Epica way is a “better, safer, smarter” approach to veterinary care. Their amazing state of the art modalities are manufactured in Italy, the home of innovation and invention itself. But it doesn’t stop there - Epica’s team has created a technology that now allows the capability to treat animals suffering from conditions that were previously deemed untreatable or missed completely. It’s literally lifesaving technology.
A patient driven approach to healthcare essentially evokes the idea that the patient is an active participant in their treatment. While we like to think that in 2017 everyone practicing medicine is putting this approach to use, the reality couldn’t be more opposite. With flip phones slowly becoming dinosaur technology, perhaps it's time we all take a hint. If technology rules the roost….why can’t it become the medium by which we communicate diagnoses and medical images?
Topics: cloud-based PACS
One of the biggest advantages that a Cloud based solution offers is the ability to collaborate with other physicians. Since childhood, the notion of teamwork is drilled into us. However, for the most part, working in concert has been a little difficult in the world of modern medicine. I’m not talking about in the Operating Theater, I’m referring to everything else. Outside that OT or OR, there really is a lack of real time collaboration. But wait! We have good news: you can now put those skills to work as you finally have the resources to collaborate with countless specialists around the world...in real time.
The answer is YES! You most certainly can integrate Horos and OsiriX the Cloud. If you are experiencing issues with the capacity or sharing abilities of your current solution being sub par, rest assured, you’re asking the right question. However, while your viewer can connect to the Cloud, you cannot just pick any random Cloud PACS at random. In fact, there are a few conditions and caveats that you need to take into account to determine if a particular Cloud service will integrate with Horos.
