Three hundred and fifty customers are now subscribing to eMix’s (Electronic Medical Information Exchange’s) cloud-based service for sharing medical imaging studies and reports. Mercy Health Partners, a member of Trinity Health organization of hospitals, physicians, and other health care providers that serve the western Michigan region, became the 350th customer.
eMix enables secure sharing of images and reports among disparate institutions and physicians via the Internet. As a vendor-neutral, cloud-based technology, eMix makes possible the transfer of imaging and other medical data, even between information technology systems that don’t normally talk to each other.
eMix also provides eight layers of security to protect health care institutions’ patient data. The eMix security architecture enables institutions to comply with requirements of the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), as well as enforce strict security policies of their own.
