Fast, efficient, and secure remote access is important when located a distance from a major clinical hospital facility.
This is where the CDN referral portal system come to the fore. Secure in that the DMZ between the hospital infrastructure and this referral portal will not bring down your primary system via a DoS. The back end is web based for ease of use by the end user and thus images and reports are delivered when the user needs them most, with the patient sitting next to the referrer.
This portal is secure in other ways that meet the HIPPA and other statuary requirements and the DMZ means the system is fenced off from the primary PACS system.
