New tool for medical information sharing

lifeIMAGE has launched a new solution that gives healthcare organisations the ability to facilitate the sharing of medical information.

LITE was developed to enable healthcare entities to quickly deploy and build clinical networks. “The goal at lifeIMAGE was to achieve greater healthcare interoperability. LITE drastically simplifies the complex so you can build an interoperable network without an IT department,” said lifeIMAGE President and CEO Matthew A. Michela. “This product is standards-based and integrates right into existing workflow. You don’t need to programme around proprietary requirements, and you aren’t forced to learn and use additional user interfaces.”

Among the benefits and features of LITE, according to lifeIMAGE, are that it uses application programming interfaces (APIs) based on standards, and facilitates access to all medical imaging data types across multiple vendors at scale.

The tool aims to save time and resources in creating and expanding a referral and co-ordination network. “We preannounced LITE to our existing customers last month,” said Michela. “In a short amount of time, we’ve deployed the application to nearly 30 hospital customers. That kind of response demonstrates a clear market need.”
