HIPAA compliant mobile consultations for Doctors

30 Jul

Finally, a commercially available intelligent system to allow all physicians to provide consultations from anywhere, simply through a Blackberry ( or any other smartphone, but not an iphone !?! See Comment 1).

The mVisum Medical Communication System is a communication tool that allows medical professionals to securely receive, review and respond to patient data recorded at the point of care.

mVisum uses multiple levels of security and authentication to ensure HIPAA compliance. The handheld requires unique username and password for each physician, which is then authenticated by the server against the IMEI number and phone number. Data transmission between the server and the handheld is carried out through a patented double encryption system, where the data is first scrambled, which is further delivered through a 128 bit encrypted pipeline, each step individually meeting or surpassing HIPPA requirements. The sending console to server communication is also similarly architected, thus providing strong security end-to-end.

Types of Data Transferred include-

  • DICOM Images – loss-less representation of the original file, with Zoom capabilities.
  • CT Scan
  • MRI
  • EKG
  • Cine Loops
  • X-Rays
  • Free text

The system has advanced technology that allows the system to be availability aware,so that another physician can immediately be contacted if the original intended physician is unavailable.Once received, the physician can review data and securely respond with medical opinion, prescription or other critical orders. Real Neat, eh?
