“An Phoenix, Arizona company called DICOM Grid has developed a cloud-based service that eases that pain, providing a way to share images among clinicians and patients without violating any HIPAA privacy laws.
The platform uses a couple of cool proprietary technologies to deliver images quickly and securely. The first is a streaming function that allows clinicians to begin viewing images while they’re still coming down from the cloud.
The second is a security feature that divorces personal or “protected health information” from the image itself while in transit. This goes a long way toward satisfying the privacy requirements of sending medical images.”
