Abstract:
Clinics and hospitals are acquiring more technological resources to help providing a faster and more precise diagnostic, with the goal of making it more dynamic and effective. This is pushing health institutions to search for more modern equipment, with greater technological features. Besides last generation equipment, another problem faced by these institutions is enabling the connection of physicians to a Picture Archive and Communication Systems (PACS) from anywhere. With the use of communication resources increasingly present in everyday life, like Wireless-Fidelity (Wi-Fi), third generation of mobile telecommunications technology (3G), fourth generation of mobile telecommunications technology (4G), Worldwide Interoperability for Microwave Access (WiMax) and other wireless networks that allow the connection of mobile devices, it becomes easier and cheaper to provide quality medical services at a distance. Diagnoses that needed a doctor to be present, for instance, can now be performed from anywhere, provided there is an Internet connection. Cloud-based PACS is shown to be efficient for archiving medical images, allowing access to exams and reports from anywhere, over wireless networks, regardless of the platform used for access.
