Thirty Montana healthcare facilities plan to share radiology images and reports using a new cloud-based technology, called eMix (Electronic Medical Information Exchange).

Thirty Montana healthcare facilities plan to share radiology images and reports using a new cloud-based technology, called eMix (Electronic Medical Information Exchange). DR Systems, developer of eMix, will begin implementing the technology in late November.  The cloud computing approach embodied in eMix, which utilizes computers connected through the Internet, requires no capital outlay for hardware or software. The eMix system will be fully operational in early 2010a cross all 30 facilities, which have banded together to form the Image Movement of Montana. This grassroots organization was formed to counter image-sharing problems among rural healthcare providers in Montana.  Having the means to transfer patient studies long distances is particularly important for rural facilities, because they sometimes must transport patients to urban hospitals for treatment.  The standard workaround approaches – burning and mailing CDs, printing film, or faxing reports – are labor-intensive, costly, and too slow for emergency situations.
