ORLANDO, FL February 21, 2011– Medweb, a seasoned provider of encrypted, secure PACS and telemedicine solutions for over 20 years, announced today at the 2011 Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMMS), Booth #5680, the successful certification of over 29 IHE Integration profiles at the IHE North American Connectathon held recently in Chicago.

Medweb Cloud based PACS Service extends certified IHE compliant Image Archiving to all sizes of medical practice. As a monthly service, Medweb, certified by IHE in over 29 integration profiles, includes Cross Enterprise Document and Image Exchange profiles to link offices, clinics, and hospitals across Health Information Exchanges, as well as conventional radiology workflow profiles.
The 2011 Integrating the Healthcare Enterprise (IHE) North America Connectathon, held annually in Asia, Europe and North America, allows vendors to perform required transactions for the roles they select (IHE Actors) in support of defined clinical use cases (IHE Profiles) that allow integration of multiple information systems from disparate institutions to share medical record and image data electronically between facilities.
Over 100 companies collaborated to demonstrate and certify IHE compliance, the Connectathon has grown substantially as companies and clients recognize the importance of IHE compliance to collaborate in today’s fully electronic medical imaging environment. Medweb’s certification specifically addresses the workflows for intramural Radiology and PACS workflow, as well as Cross Enterprise Document and Image Sharing, and related encryption, logging, and collaboration profiles which allow sharing of medical imaging and documents between hospitals, clinics, and doctors offices.
Medweb’s IHE compliance included IHE Cross-Enterprise Document Sharing (XDS.b) and IHE Cross-Enterprise Document Sharing for Imaging (XDS-I.b), XDS b document repository, Image Manager Scheduled Workflow (SWF) and Patient Information Reconciliation (PIR as well as providing comprehensive Clinical Document Repository (CDR) and Vendor Neutral Archive (VNA) capabilities.
