TeraMedica’s Evercore® Clinical Enterprise Suite is Now MINT & XDS Enabled

Evercore’s Vendor Neutral Architecture Expands the Utility and Access of Clinical Data

(MILWAUKEE, Wisconsin – November 21st, 2011)

TeraMedica’s Evercore® Clinical Enterprise Suite, the leading Vendor Neutral Archive (VNA) in the industry, is now both MINT (Medical Imaging Network Transport) and XDS (Cross-Enterprise Document Sharing Profile) enabled. MINT provides improved patient care through faster access to medical data with no need for redundant data. XDS enables existing clinical information systems to connect to IHE XDS-based healthcare information exchanges. Both of these technologies are highlighted at RSNA 2011 in Booth 3002 in the South Hall of McCormick Place.”TeraMedica continually works to incorporate the latest advances in technology to enhance patient care,” said Mark Wheeler, TeraMedica’s Vice President of Product Development. “By incorporating MINT and XDS into our Evercore clinical data repository, TeraMedica significantly increases access speed and greatly expands the methods by which medical data may be retrieved.”

Evercore’s support of MINT eliminates the need for DICOM routing and application-specific caches. Evercore’s use of MINT allows for direct access to the metadata, independent of the pixel data, removing data duplication. MINT also encodes the data in XML, the enterprise standard. Image viewing capabilities for MINT are provided through a partnership with Vital, A Toshiba Medical Systems Group Company.

In addition, TeraMedica now delivers the XDS within its Evercore® Clinical Enterprise Suite. Evercore delivers a full suite of XDS and XDS-I functionality in compliance with the IHE IT Integration Profile. By delivering the XDS-I functionality, Evercore enables web-access to DICOM images through the WADO standard and also optimizes performance through streaming capability for storing and retrieving.

Evercore’s flexible and scalable architecture integrates and manages patient-centric clinical content in clinical and research settings across wide geographies. Evercore natively manages and distributes data beyond DICOM using global standards such as MPG, JPG, PDF and many types of critical clinical content such as treatment plans for cancer care or vital reports in unstructured data formats.

TeraMedica’s patented Smartstore™ module intelligently manages the total image lifecycle of DICOM and beyond. Smartstore provides a shared enterprise infrastructure for managing clinical content based on business policies, specifically tailored to meet the needs of individual hospitals and/or departments. TeraMedica’s vendor-independent platform connects multiple PACS to any storage system, thus ending cumbersome data migration.
