The IMOM facilities — including Great Falls Clinic (Great Falls, Mont.), Kalispell Regional Medical Center (Kalispell, Mont.) and St. Luke Community Healthcare (Ronan, Mont.) — will be the first medical institutions to share patient data via eMix, which uses cloud computing to share radiology images and reports.
The three institutions began testing eMix in late November as a pilot project for IMOM. During the pilot phase, trial exchanges included large files such as MRIs and digital mammograms related to current patients.
eMix was developed by DR Systems, a provider of healthcare information systems including RIS/CVIS/PACS.
