Industry’s most secure and accredited healthcare technology on display at RSNA 2012

Calgary, AB – November 20, 2012 – While attending it’s 9th RSNA in Chicago on November 25 to 30, Calgary Scientific Inc. will demonstrate the FDA-cleared diagnostic technology that has helped define the company’s leadership in mobile healthcare. As one of the first companies awarded FDA class II clearance for diagnosis on mobile devices using ResolutionMD, Calgary Scientific is the only company utilizing a truly virtual architecture that requires no data movement to devices.

In previous years at RSNA, Calgary Scientific has led the industry with defining how web technologies should be adopted to maximize their value. Calgary Scientific introduced the concept of “Zero Footprint” and educated the market of the value of PureWeb®. At this year’s RSNA , Calgary Scientific will continue to lead with its demonstrations on the value of HTML5.

Calgary Scientific has strengthened its healthcare relationships by adding heavyweights Allscripts, AT&T, Dell, Medtronic, Compressus and Acuo to its global reseller network, joining long-time partners Fuji, and Siemens.

“Over the past year, the healthcare sector has embraced change and is now understanding the need for increased accessibility to real-time information,” says Byron Osing, CEO and Chair of Calgary Scientific. “We have seen growing demand for accredited partners as integrated healthcare becomes a national and global focus for governments and healthcare partners; we are at the forefront of that demand.

Calgary Scientific has also expanded its luminary program in 2012. Leading institutions including Yale University and the Mayo Clinic (see Mayo Clinic telestroke study) continue to validate the key benefits of the Calgary Scientific technology including:

  • Accreditation - FDA cleared for diagnosis, CE Mark and Health Canada approved
  • Security - patient data is never transferred to the device
  • Accessibility - use on workstations, home computers, laptops or smartphones
  • Performance - advanced 2D/3D viewing and collaboration over low-bandwidth
  • Global capability - 10 languages now supported and partner support on every continent

“Our partners provide extremely valuable feedback to our product teams allowing us to bring new innovations to our ResolutionMD and PureWeb products lines.” said Pierre Lemire, President and Chief Technology Officer for Calgary Scientific. “They also provide evidence that our technology is making a real difference in how physicians deliver healthcare.”
