The production of CDs to transfer studies for patients and medico-legal firms is a time-consuming and costly exercise. Furthermore, CDs are error prone, provide little security, no audit trail and waste valuable time through slow load times and high failure rates.
Cimar’s cloud sharing technology provides the ability to instantly share cases electronically, dramatically reducing the number of CDs to be burned, and significantly reducing administrative workload and cost.
Advanced Automated Workflows
Machine learning capabilities and routing rules can be implemented to automate sending workflows based on meta-data found within the study.
Reduce IG Risk
Greatly reduce information governance risk with a full audit trail of every case – detailing where and when studies were shared, viewed and reported, and by whom.
CD production wastes valuable time and money. Using Cimar for your image transfer requirements allows you to free up and redirect resources into patient care and more strategic initiatives.
