International Medical Solutions Unveils Its New Solutions for Google Cloud Healthcare Customers Transitioning to the Cloud

TORONTONov. 27, 2019 /PRNewswire/ — International Medical Solutions (“IMS”), a Google Cloud Partner, today announced a solution that will enable radiologists and other healthcare clinicians to transition to the cloud. The IMS CloudSync™ enables radiology sites to transition to the cloud and continue to use their legacy on-premise workstations and DICOM viewers. The front-end solution designed with the needs of first time Google Cloud Platform (GCP) users in mind uses an implementation that enables GCP to be added to an on-premise legacy viewing workflow, where GCP would act as the archive. The plug-and-play solution works out-of-the-box and allows PACS sites to sync their on-premise storage of medical images with their cloud storage. The added benefit is the sites can continue to use their legacy PACS workstations to view images stored in the cloud.

“IMS has been working closely with Google Cloud to solve unmet needs for customers who are starting to transition to the cloud. CloudSync™ is an out-of-the-box, cost-effective solution that improves clinician workflows while enabling them to use on-prem legacy systems at the same time,” says Vittorio Accomazzi, CTO of International Medical Solutions. Accomazzi adds, “Also, CloudSync™ inherently provides image sharing as it allows multiple sites to share and exchange images on GCP.”

IMS CloudVue™ will also be featured at RSNA this year. The solution, which launched earlier this year, is a cloud-based viewing platform that provides the experience of an installed application on any device or workstation. CloudSync™ and CloudVue™ can also be used as a disaster recovery solution since CloudSync™ will upload the on-premise data onto GCP, which can be accessed using CloudVue™. At any given time, the user has two copies of the data and at least two ways for accessing it.

Over the last year, IMS has worked closely with Google Cloud to enhance the integration with the Google Cloud Healthcare API, including integrating with machine learning backend. Both IMS CloudSync™ and IMS CloudVue™ solutions will be available for demonstration in the Google Cloud booth during the RSNA conference.

“In our experience, healthcare professionals want cost-effective, easy-to-implement solutions that will improve their workflow and provide an accurate diagnosis for their patients. We believe our partnership with Google Cloud and our ability to quickly develop products to support the market, will transform the way medical images are read, interpreted, and stored for many years to come,” adds Accomazzi.

Vittorio Accomazzi will be presenting and demonstrating both solutions on Tuesday, December 3rd, at 11:00 AM in the Google Cloud booth at the AI Showcase. Feel free to visit IMS at RSNA in the North Hall, Booth #11318.

Eastern Health to Use IMS Platform for 360-Degree Peer-to-Peer Learning Experience

TORONTONov. 6, 2019 /PRNewswire/ — International Medical Solutions (“IMS”) and Eastern Health have signed an agreement to optimize peer learning for Medical Imaging, along with an option to deliver future peer learning programs to all of Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada. The IMS Peer Learning™ platform uses IMS’ FDA-cleared imaging technology, which enables radiologists to engage in interactive, web-based assessments on any device using full fidelity DICOM images, making it a true plug-and-play integration. Eastern Health plans to use IMS Peer Learning to create unique peer-learning cases (PLCs) that can be shared anonymously for peer feedback and subsequent review, creating an authentic 360-degree experience. The solution also enables radiologists to partially fulfill their PQI MOC Part 4 (in the US) and MOC CME Level 3 (in Canada) obligations. The standalone system is universally compatible, requires no applications or special maintenance, and is entirely on-premise, ensuring the data is secure.

“As an organization, we believe in healthy people and healthy communities,” says Dr. Angela Pickles, Chief Radiologist Medical Imaging at Eastern Health. “IMS is helping us fulfill our charter and provide state-of-the-art training and flexible continuing education programs to our radiologists, which ultimately benefits our patients and the care they receive from our physicians,” adds Pickles.

The IMS Peer Learning™ system was initially purchased earlier this year to support training and development for Eastern Health’s radiologists. Since the organization offers tertiary and high-level healthcare services throughout Newfoundland and Labrador, the integrated health authority also has an option to extend the tool’s usage province wide.

“We are thrilled to play a role in Eastern Health’s mission to deliver exceptional training and continuing education programs to their physicians. In our experience, public health providers, hospital administrators, educators, and healthcare practitioners are laser-focused on using technology that allows them to provide the right diagnosis for patients. We are happy to see IMS technology being widely adopted and globally recognized by health care providers to address the critical issues surrounding medical imaging,” says IMS’ Chief Technology Officer, Vittorio Accomazzi.

IMS is committed to ensuring exceptional care is being delivered to patients by well-trained radiologists worldwide. The organization has partnered with industry leaders like the American Society of Emergency RadiologyAmerican College of Radiology, Envision Healthcare, and University of Toronto, who have adopted IMS’ technology to provide testing and training for radiologists because the images are the actual DICOM images;  the images are easily accessible (desktop, tablet or smartphone); and hundreds of physicians can use the platform at the same time.
