Cloud-Based, Multi-Center, Medical Imaging Data Storage & Transfer System

The Need

When patients visit a new healthcare practitioner, they often have to take up the tiresome role of ‘middleman’ between their new practitioner seeking past medical history and imaging, and their former practitioner who continually neglects to send over the desired information. Currently, patients are responsible for holding on to images and informing their practitioner of past medical diagnosis. This stems directly from a lack of any shared storage and transfer system for medical imaging and data among institutions. Hence, there is considerable redundancy of diagnostic imaging, accompanied by high financial costs and radiation exposure.

The Market

  • The US cloud computing market for medical images was at $56.5M in 2010, and expected to reach $383.1M in 2018 (Medical Device Network)
    • Medical images storage and disaster recovery sector was valued at $22.5M in 2010, expected to reach $228.1M in 2018 (Medical Device Network)
  • An estimated $10B is wasted in the US annually on unnecessary or duplicative imaging studies (Radiographics)

The Technology

Researchers at The Ohio State University led by Richard D. White, MD, have developed a medical imaging cloud for multi-center sharing of non-invasive diagnostic imaging. The cloud will allow for central image-data storage, networking for image-data transfer, sharing of diagnostic images and electronic health records between hospitals. If a patient goes to another hospital, the healthcare provider will be able to access prior diagnostic images. This technology mitigates the redundancy and high costs associated with unnecessary medical imaging.
  • Sharing of imaging services and resources among health care providers without changing local workflows
  • Cloud services providing data storage backup for institutions and registry formation, enabling local HIPAA and IRB approved searches on the same image sets
  • Gathering of multi-center business critical information, such as resource allocation, quality, best practices, safety and referral patterns
