- A while ago, the medical center’s radiology department needed to expand their image archiving capabilities across more medical specialties. Physicians from around the healthcare enterprise were asking for help and seeking a strategy to more effectively archive and access medical images. With a cross section of specialties such as cardiology, dentistry, primary care and even the emergency department asking for help, radiology IT went in search of a way to centralize imaging across an expanding enterprise. They needed to get rid of external hard drives and printing hardcopy images, and gain access to images, reports and documents, as well as unstructured data. Physicians needed to access PACS images via the web.
- Also essential was a way to view and store imaging exams that weren’t scheduled and took place outside an imaging department. Needs were not being met for the busy emergency department as well as portable ultrasound, and dental imaging, including X-ray and CT. Consolidating multimodality, multivendor images was the plan. Together, these challenges became the drivers of change
- A vendor neutral archive became their preferred solution. The medical centers made CMIE platform as a vendor of choice. The multi-ology, multi-site clinical content repository they mdeployed enables archiving and managing of unstructured medical content including images, reports and documents, via DICOM and HL7. The CMIE’s vendor neutral archive connects multi-ology imaging studies with medical record numbers—a complex task across any health system, made simple by the archive.
- An intelligent, standards-based approach with a longitudinal view helps to differentiate great storage options today. CMIE platform with it’s rich archive solution adds an intelligent layer as it creates a longitudinal view of patient data from different vendor systems. We needed a way to view images from imaging device [connected to the internet] and link them to the network. We started with a simple, pretty basic implementation and have built on it. We will continue to expand our platform over time.
- Single, multi-site clinical content repository for all images and data to optimize viewing, management and archiving of images
- Vendor-neutral archive connects multi-ology imaging studies with medical record numbers
- Intelligent, standards-based with a longitudinal view of patient data
- Web-based access to medical images throughout the enterprise
- Storage consolidation savings
- Fast access, enabling informed decisions for enhanced patient care
- Match studies and patients – the right doctor can access the right studies on the right patient
Enterprise Image Management
- Meta data from images carry the medical record number. That means no need for staff to try to reconcile patient information. We have a high rate of exchange among patients and physicians across our health system. The archive helps to ensure studies and patients are matched and that the right doctor can access the right studies, including priors, on the right patient, at the right time with a second opinion in place. The doctors are the important pieces here. They have to be able to get the patient images they need and CMIE platform is confident to say that here, they always can.
- Adding multi-ology including cardiology images to the archive brought ease of use for the enterprise and some overall cost savings due to consolidated storage volumes. “We watch everything we spend, so that was a welcome savings”.
- The archive offers an effective and simple way to manage images and imaging systems in the ED and dental departments, especially with remote equipment not attached to the network.
- “This is a beginning. Baby steps, perhaps. But this is the way medical images need to be managed: as an enterprise, with widespread and fast access.”
- The archive knows the location of images across the enterprise. It can go out and get them whenever needed and very quickly. From a worklist, it can go and fetch images from anywhere on the network. For healthcare organizations struggling on so many fronts to improve patient care, quality and reduce costs at the same time – this is what is expected from IT Healthcare industry.
- Think of the CMIE platform’s Archive solution as the common repository that knows all exams in multiple archives and understands all the metadata. This is the way images need to be managed. Most health systems bring in new hospitals or practices with different record numbers. This is the best way to sync those up efficiently.
- CMIE Healthcare platform’s guidance has helped the medical centers along the way to identify the next solution they need and be sure it works well with their current systems. All of these pieces are building blocks. CMIE recommends starting small and building from there. We considered our current PACS as a given and built off of that. Our initial requirements were modest and we put out a very simple solution. Over time with the inputs of our mentors (clients), the whole organization has become more aware of this technology and they are leaning on us for more sophisticated options. This graduated approach has helped control cost and has given us a chance to learn how to manage this program organizationally.
- Success ultimately comes down to strategy, planning and project execution. Hospitals and health systems need to develop a strategy that includes everything to optimize viewing, management and archiving. Look at this holistically. The image exchange, PACS and Vendor Neutral Archive (VNA) need to be one, considered as a cohesive group of imaging technologies. Take into account the use cases, interfaces and integration. Be sure your images are truly accessible within the workflows your organization already has. It should be transparent to the radiologists and other specialists searching for and reading images. If you introduce the VNA as a separate archive that you need to view apart from existing imaging, users will be confused and frustrated. You need to carefully weave this into your existing imaging technology
— AI ROUTERS
Data Optimiser (DO)
Data Optimiser (DO) is an enterprise grade DICOM Gateway software designed specifically to manage optimal and secure transmission of clinical images between any sources, and any destinations, across any networks and the internet. A DO gateway installed on your network, can receive from multiple sources, read image tags, decide where to send the images, and send compressed and encrypted to any other source, anywhere. For the user, DO automatically routes images across network boundaries as a back office service. In reality, DO can appear in different DICOM sources as they would expect, despite their proprietary nature and linguistic incompatibility. It can execute a sophisticated library of custom rules to determine what to do with incoming DICOM, where to send them and what system to emulate when doing so. DO has unique DICOM manipulation features. It is built on the latest technologies to achieve better performance with smarter system resource management, and is compliant with the latest Windows operating systems.
- Automated image routing with Lossless image Compression and unlimited node connectivity
- Ensures secure communication with SSL/TLS Encryption

Universal Uploader (UU)
Universal Uploader (UU) is a powerful secure push agent for uploading any clinical & patient data. The ability to send all information in one single upload helps to assess the case with all the relevant information and thus report precisely. The system provides a single point for the specialists across multi-level departments to communicate and collaborate with each other over a secured framework creating an electronic community for the exchange of patient health information. UU can be installed in less than 10 minutes with zero configuration. Once installed you will be ready to upload patient health data to CMIE.
Radiology (CT, CR, MR, MG, US, DR, XA, XC etc)
Cardiology (Echo, ECG, Heart Sounds)

CMIE’s AI powered Image Optimization Engine, transforms your current frame work into a whole new Digital Asset Management Strategy.
- AI powered Image optimization engines are built with Image Recognition Codecs, which identifies each pixel of the image and carefully prepares to push to network accelerator protocols which are cleverly structured into CMIE’s gateway services.
- The whole new features comprises of:
o Progressive Image Transmission Engine which recognizes and ensures the data integrity.
o The whole transmission service provides inbuilt security and encryption layer (AES 256 bit encryption)
o This significantly reduces multi dependent hardware and any complexity, for example using low power, costs, there by faster throughput speed of encoding, decoding and retrieval of large data sets
o This represents usage of image data in a non-conventional way of data transformation unlike JPEG, JPEG2000 and other traditional formats.
