Olympus says that in combination its new nCare – ‘an easy-to-use, reliable, and secure networked medical recorder’ , and VaultStream – ‘a cutting-edge medical content management solution’, make up an efficient system for storing, accessing, and sharing recorded procedures, and thus support the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (2016/679).
The ‘hospital-wide documentation solution’ is described as ‘secure, intuitive, and accessible anywhere’. Olympus said: “The nCare medical recorder and VaultStream medical content management system support efficient clinical workflows, and safeguard recorded images and videos, while providing flexibility in various healthcare environments.”
nCare captures images and videos from up to two surgical devices simultaneously. Recorded visual data can then be stored locally or managed automatically on VaultStream, allowing users to access patient records via mobile devices or remote computers securely and conveniently. Clinicians and nurses can also share images and videos easily throughout the hospital.
The system also provides ‘very easy to use and advanced’ video editing tools. Video footage can be adjusted before submission to PACS system, while clinicians can be confident that all procedure videos ‘will be available anywhere, anytime’ – due to the automatic background video recording feature.
Olympus explained: “nCare and VaultStream support GDPR compliance by meeting the highest information, security, and privacy standards. In the event of an unexpected power loss, recorded procedure data remains intact, helping hospitals gain a new level of confidence in their data and recording systems when performing complex procedures.”
David Gillett, Senior Product manager for Systems Integration at Olympus, said: “The new products strengthen Olympus’s integration portfolio, as we can offer a secure video content management system within the hospital network, where patients’ pictures and videos can be accessed from anywhere. We can also now offer a solution to healthcare facilities to significantly reduce risk of exposure to potential data breaches, and, most importantly, protect patient privacy.”
