2020 North America Enabling Technology Leadership Award

ScImage, Inc. (ScImage) publicized receiving Frost and amp; Sullivan’s 2020 North America Enabling Technology Leadership Award for its Cloud-based Enterprise Imaging Solutions (PICOM365). ScImage is a California-based company and a leading enterprise imaging solution provider in the US, delivering pioneering imaging and workflow solutions to the healthcare industry.

Being a pure cloud-based solution, ScImage offers a seamless interface, best-in-class accessibility, and integration with third-party imaging tools for physicians that allow them to understand images from a comprehensive and single database.

Based on consumer’s feedback, ScImage developed the PICOM365 platform. With architecture thoroughly designed to optimize the cloud, the PICOM365 platform enables fast, agile software development cycles that are quick to deploy and respond quickly to changing industry trends and consumer demands. ScImage’s latest PICOM365 platform is customizable to health institutions’ fluctuating requirements.

The company recently incorporated PicomAlerts, a unique monitoring system that plays a vital role by sending an alert to consumers in case of performance issues that could prevent imaging orders. Also, it empowers PICOM365 to fix potential problems automatically before the consumer experiences gaps or lags in workflows.

The company is innovating its product portfolio following consumer’s evolving business requirements. The PICOM365 Cloud is now home to more than 100 institutions for complex clinical imaging and reporting secure image exchange and interoperability.

Complete imaging process

  • Compliant with HL7 (Health Level Seven International) standards, the PICOM365 platform employs proprietary SmartStreaming to decrease lags while reading images.
  • Smart edge devices get imaging orders, store them in cloud, and later boost the modality worklist.
  • After image acquisition, the collected information goes back to the edge device and gets stored in the PICOM365 Cloud.
  • The intelligent edge device identifies physicians’ locations and fetches images from the nearest PICOM365 Cloud or edge cache for onsite and offsite physicians.
  • Remotely, users could access images immediately and in seconds.
