Application ensures security of confidential patient information
Calgary, AB - September 26, 2011 - Calgary Scientific Inc. has received clearance from the UnitedStates (US) Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to market its industry-leading medical imaging application, ResolutionMD™ Mobile, as a mobile diagnostic application, in the US. With this secure, highly scalable, server-based software solution, physicians located anywhere can rapidly access, view, and interact with patient images and reports stored within any healthcare facility, and render a clinical diagnosis using their mobile devices. Prior non-diagnostic versions of this product are currently distributed and licensed under Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) agreements with global leaders in medical imaging and information technology. In addition to the recent FDA clearance, ResolutionMD Mobile has also been licensed by Health Canada and bears the CE Mark for distribution in Europe.
The ResolutionMD mobile product was purpose-built from the existing ResolutionMD™ software, which first received FDA clearance in 2006. ResolutionMD Mobile was then uniquely mobile-enabled into a state-of-the-art product, utilizing the power of Calgary Scientific's PureWeb® platform technology, which allows ResolutionMD to simultaneously support multiple mobile devices and operating systems. This initial FDA clearance applies to versions of the solution running on Apple® iPhone® and iPad® devices. The mobile app offers unparalleled performance, advanced capabilities and complete security, utilizes minimal bandwidth and offers strong performance even on 3/4G wireless, and ensures that no highly sensitive or confidential patient information is ever retained on the mobile device. The patient image data cannot be lost or stolen, as in the case of traditional mobile-device rendered software, which requires that data to be sent to the mobile device. The flexible, highly scalable, and easily installed environment of ResolutionMD Mobile expands the delivery of Calgary Scientific's image rendering technologies to empower healthcare organizations, physicians and patients to view images and reports, provide significantly enhanced levels of patient care, and reduce healthcare system costs.
