Karos Health Introduces New Product Releases at RSNA 2011

Simple, Seamless, Scalable Imaging Exchange Networks

Karos Health, a leader in standards-based clinical information exchange and storage solutions, introduces new product releases at this year’s RSNA annual conference in Chicago. The new product enhancements support Karos’ vision of creating simple and seamless access to clinical documents and diagnostic imaging results.

Product highlights to be shown at RSNA include:

  • Rialto Connect supports foreign imaging ingestion for most PACS systems in the market place today and supports seamless prefetching and querying from multiple IHE XDS-based (XDS-I) or DICOM-based repositories
  • Rialto Vault uses search engine technology to index clinical information and no longer requires a relational database. This database-less configuration enhances scalability and reliability while reducing costs and reliance on 3rd party databases. Rialto Vault supports object-based storage based on Caringo’s CAStor and the Hitachi Content Platform (HCP) from Hitachi Data Systems
  • Rialto Discover provides enhancements in all areas of the product. Improved user administration tools provide integrated link/unlink capabilities for both patients and associated documents. The audit record repository also uses search engine technology to index records and no longer requires a relational database, thus enhancing scalability and reliably

Karos’ Rialto platform continues to expand to meet the evolving needs of today’s healthcare providers and health information exchanges (HIEs). The Rialto platform:

  • Provides a powerful set of capabilities to build imaging information exchanges, allowing healthcare providers and HIEs to deliver increased quality of care and to expand their services throughout the communities they serve
  • Creates seamless interoperability with existing clinical systems and enhanced workflow in support of distributed healthcare value chain processes
  • Is highly secure, scalable and standards-based, simplifying interoperability across systems and providers for exchange of clinical documents and diagnostic images
