Escalon® Medical Corp. and Modernizing Medicine, Inc. Announce Partnership for Offering Integrated EMR and Image Management

WAYNE, Pa., Nov. 9, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Escalon® Medical Corp. (Nasdaq: ESMC) today announced the partnering of its Sonomed Escalon™ group with Modernizing Medicine, Inc. to provide cloud-based end-to-end electronic medical records (EMR) and image management solutions for ophthalmic practices. Seamless integration of Sonomed Escalon's AXIS™ image management software and Modernizing Medicine's Electronic Medical Assistant™ EMA Ophthalmology EMR solution provides complete patient management from a single merged solution, from coding and prescribing at the touch of a button to powerful exam image review tools, and more. The companies will introduce the integrated solutions at the American Academy of Ophthalmology's Annual Meeting in Chicago, IL November 10-13, 2012.

"EMA Ophthalmology is a cloud-enabled EMR that is fast becoming one of the industry's leading solutions due to its power, flexibility, ease of use, and focus on improving clinical efficiency," noted Matthew Carnevale, Sonomed Escalon's Chief Technology Officer. "Now added to that is unparalleled exam image review capabilities and complete integration with nearly any diagnostic imaging device."

"We are excited to save doctors even more time with the addition of AXIS' advanced integration of diagnostic images to patient records stored in EMA," said James Brooks, Executive Vice President of Sales & Marketing at Modernizing Medicine. "Sonomed Escalon is an ideal partner for Modernizing Medicine since both companies have demonstrated a commitment to making accessible mobile offerings, especially on the iPad platform. With the combined AXIS EMA Ophthalmology solution, ophthalmologists can now both review diagnostic images  such as OCT, fluorescein angiography, color fundus, and others, and interpret the results of the exam directly on an iPad."

The partnership allows Modernizing Medicine and Escalon to offer their respective products either as stand-alone solutions or as an integrated package, depending upon the needs of particular clients. For more information, visit www.modmed.com or www.sonomedescalon.com, or meet both companies at the American Academy of Ophthalmology's Annual Meeting, booth #2771 for Modernizing Medicine and #3238 for Sonomed Escalon.

It must be a transparent, smoothly implemented strategy that all stakeholders – from customers to the board – will be able to understand and comprehe...
More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints. However, most consumers have no idea what “IoT” means. Creating more wearables that track data shouldn't be the aim of brands; delivering meaningful, tangible relevance to their users should be. We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smart...
Complete Internet of Things (IoT) embedded device security is not just about the device but involves the entire product’s identity, data and control integrity, and services traversing the cloud. A device can no longer be looked at as an island; it is a part of a system. In fact, given the cross-domain interactions enabled by IoT it could be a part of many systems. Also, depending on where the device is deployed, for example, in the office building versus a factory floor or oil field, security ha...

What happens when the different parts of a vehicle become smarter than the vehicle itself? As we move toward the era of smart everything, hundreds of entities in a vehicle that communicate with each other, the vehicle and external systems create a need for identity orchestration so that all entities work as a conglomerate. Much like an orchestra without a conductor, without the ability to secure, control, and connect the link between a vehicle’s head unit, devices, and systems and to manage the ...

The Internet of Things will challenge the status quo of how IT and development organizations operate. Or will it? Certainly the fog layer of IoT requires special insights about data ontology, security and transactional integrity.

"Once customers get a year into their IoT deployments, they start to realize that they may have been shortsighted in the ways they built out their deployment and the key thing I see a lot of people looking at is - how can I take equipment data, pull it back in an IoT solution and show it in a dashboard," stated Dave McCarthy, Director of Products at Bsquare Corporation, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held November 1-3, 2016, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.

The Internet of Things (IoT) promises to simplify and streamline our lives by automating routine tasks that distract us from our goals. This promise is based on the ubiquitous deployment of smart, connected devices that link everything from industrial control systems to automobiles to refrigerators.
