EMR EnTRAPMENT SYNDROME: VV SOLUTIONS
Many medical provider users of EMR systems report effective communication between internal EMR users within EMR networks but very poor connectivity with external EMR systems or with external medical entities or medical providers not using the same EMR system.
Many medical providers resorted to more primitive communication methods such as PACs, phone calls, and courier delivery of CDs to compensate for lack of functional EMR interoperability.
We have described this phenomenon as EMR entrapment syndrome. This video describes the symptoms and etiology and describes solutions developed by virtual box Inc. to accommodate for this ubiquitous EMR issue.
Virtual Viewbox Inc.
This video describes the initial use case for Virtual Viewbox. As described in the video, there was a need for medical providers to collaborate with the radiologist using the newly introduced iPad tablet. The process was initially designed using proprietary screen sharing what software operating on the radiologist to the server.
We found this methodology to difficult to initiate and to slow using 3G connectivity available in 2010. These limitations inspired the creation of the current virtual viewbox solutions and led to innovations in the areas of interoperability and a token based security members.
As to demonstrated in the video, the initial prototype was successfully utilized by the United States Ski & Snowboarding Team and the team trainers successfully utilized the virtual viewbox tablet based interface for communication between the team physicians and radiologists.
