Most veterinary specialists will come across the need to create a report here or there, every now and then. But here is some food for thought: how do you make reports and are they hurting or helping your business?
Are you still using Word, Pages, or another comparable program to create and distribute your medical reports? Do you get frustrated with never being able to find all your images and reports in the same medium? Does it feel like you are wasting time creating reports that don’t even look that professional? Well, if you use Horos, OsiriXTM, or any other DICOM open source viewer and have these concerns, Horos Cloud Reporting is for you.
When you use Horos to capture or maintain patient information related to a patient who is a resident of the EU, you are responsible for ensuring that your organization complies with GDPR.
Dear Horos Community Member,
Thank you for your support of Horos. We are now three years past our original introduction of Horos and are overwhelmed with the level of support we have received. We now have more than 125,000 users around the world, spanning seven continents and 170 countries. Every day we hear from community members who tell us about how important Horos is to their work or their personal needs. We love hearing from our members, so keep those cards (emails) and letters coming!
The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) of the European Union (EU) is like HIPAA...with a twist...a big twist. Seriously. If you thought HIPAA had high fines, the revised GDPR will give a run for your money. So, do yourself a favor and take the precautions necessary to abide to these new regulations - now in effect.
While Horos certainly still has a way to go before it can be put in the same category as a Cloud based DICOM viewer, it is still one step ahead of an onsite and physically bulky viewing workstation. With Horos, as a physician or academic, you can download the application onto your Mac laptop and you can view patient images anywhere you take your device.
Physicians often find themselves needing to collaborate on patient studies. If you are only using local onsite solutions like Horos, you are probably having to send the images via mail. So long story short, no, Horos does not allow you to collaborate in real time with a colleague. However, if that is something you need, the makers of Horos have an affordable solution that will enable you to collaborate and then some.
Did you know that Horos is literally present all over the world? That’s right, all seven continents on Planet Earth now have Horos users residing on them. That is quite an accomplishment considering that Horos is only a little over 3 years old. The features in Horos are quite amazing as they can be used in a variety of specialties. This spotlight takes us back to Horos users in Brazil...
If you need to view medical images, there is not a specialty out there that cannot benefit from the use of a fully featured, open source DICOM viewer like Horos. From Azerbaijan to Zimbabwe, Horos is everywhere. In fact, one of our largest Horos user populations is in Italy. Read more to learn about how Horos applies to physiotherapy…
