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…
While there are more Windows users out there than Mac, you will always find physicians using Apple products around the world. For them, Horos is a breath of fresh air, as it was built to perform on a Mac platform. From the Americas to Asia, Horos has a footprint everywhere. One such place is India.
Brazil as a nation has one of the largest Horos user populations in the world. Provided that Horos is present in 160 countries, that is a rather interesting statistic. While Horos users come from all corners of the globe, and range from a wide spectrum of specialties and professions, this spotlight introduces you to a neurosurgeon in Brazil, and how Horos has brought immense value to his career, his team, and his patients.
