Atlanta, GA, United States, 2013/05/16 - Newly designed Velocity 3.0 includes cloud-based collaboration and data exchange tools, interface enhancements and optimized workflow - VelocityMedical.com.
Velocity Medical Solutions, innovators in multi-modality imaging and therapy tools for radiation oncology centers, has released v3.0 of the VelocityGRID software platform for oncology including the much anticipated VelocityConnect a cloud-based, HIPAA compliant image collaboration and exchange tool.
Prior to the 3.0 release, more than 300 cancer centers worldwide, including almost half of the Top 50 Cancer Centers in the U.S., have already selected the VelocityGRID Platform for enhanced image-guided tumor targeting and continuous monitoring of patient response to treatment and will upgrade to v3.0 in 2013. The VelocityGRID platform has been evaluated by many academic medical centers to validate the need for deformable image registration, oncology PACS, and cloud-based image and data sharing within the radiation oncology environment. The new version of the Velocity platform continues to leverage this research and includes other enhancements including a simple user interface, a unique graphical patient “map” and landing page, improved plan review, workflow, contouring, registration and our HIPAA compliant, cloud-based collaboration tool VelocityConnect.
VelocityConnect allows radiation oncology departments to exchange and collaborate on data with different users in different clinics and gives radiation oncologists access to their data anytime, anywhere. VelocityConnect allows patients to share their data with referring physicians for seamless collaborative care.
"Connecting oncologists and cancer centers in the cloud is a major step towards bringing imaging and treatment information to a shared network of designated users, regardless of their location," said Chris Hanna, CEO of Velocity Medical Solutions. "Secure, on-demand access to oncology imaging and treatment data, combined with our advanced imaging platform, is helping clinicians on our network improve outcomes and patient care."
The 3.0 release also features key enhancements to VelocityGRID, our vendor neutral oncology image management and storage system. VelocityGRID enables clinicians to make treatment decisions with greater confidence based on multiple imaging modes, total dose mapping, and a complete record of patient images and plans. VelocityGRID provides comprehensive image integration and easy dose summation, offering new levels of accuracy and safety.
