This article was originally published in Clinica
Siemens Medical Systems and Philips Medical Systems are to develop jointly an enhanced clinical image access service (CIAS). The CORBAMED solution is to be adopted by the Object Management Group - a consortium of 800 companies - as a platform to access picture archiving and communications systems (PACS) data through the electronic patient record format. The companies expect the development of the cross-application technology to take two years and they say, it is not intended to replace the DICOM connectivity standard now used in medical imaging.
