“MSKIC LLC created the RadCloud platform to support the Radiology-as-a-Service offerings, including vendor neutral image and medical information content, in addition to private cloud-based RIS/PACS and subspecialty teleradiology services. The RadCloud ecosystem required a feature rich, flexible, and interoperable enterprise imaging workflow engine/VNA solution, and Dicom Systems was a perfect match of features and flexibility,” said Douglas Smith, MD, president of MSKIC.

DICOM Systems routers integrate seamlessly with the RadCloud ecosystem using a restful application programming interface and anticipated HL7 FHIR connectivity in early 2016.

“By choosing Dicom Systems as MSKIC’s partner, we have established a solid foundation to gain crucial vendor neutrality, interoperability and scalability, while uniquely managing our image lifecycle management (ILM) requirements, both on-premise and cloud-based,” said Smith.

With the platform, MSKIC LLC is now able to normalize all images into a DICOM-conformant VNA framework and leverage a hybrid cloud approach with both on-premise and cloud-based components for data storage, permitting combination of performance and rapid scalability.

“We are excited to be a part of Dr. Smith’s vision for the future of his practice,” said Florent Saint-Clair, executive vice president at Dicom Systems. “MSKIC, LLC is at the heart of a complex software solutions ecosystem that creatively leverages applications that are typically siloed from one another. Thanks to Dr. Smith’s innovation and forward thinking, Dicom Systems is seamlessly – and affordably – unifying all these applications into one cohesive and interoperable environment.
