Healthcare providers are embracing the value of visible light images because of the obvious medical value and because image capture has become second nature due to social media and the proliferation of camera-equipped smart devices. The challenge is that methodologies to store, organize and secure these images have not yet evolved at the same pace of the capture technologies.
Integrating non-DICOM images into healthcare image management workflows remains a challenge for many healthcare facilities – ER patient snapshots, wound care photos, videos and other visible light images are still being lost outside of EHRs and Enterprise Imaging Systems.
All patients must be managed for HIPAA compliance and to prevent the release of Protected Health Information (PHI). The mobile application, SnapView, helps solve this problem by allowing healthcare personnel to use supported iOS, Android and Windows Mobile devices to capture images without leaving behind any PHI.
