Erlangen, August 5, 20 – The Erlangen-based software specialists of softgate today have released the new version of DICOMconnect. With this release, softgate further expands its position as a DICOM interface provider. Medical device manufacturers can now connect nearly all device types more efficiently to the image and communication standard through a simplified DICOM object creation. Thus, an integration into the clinical workflow becomes a mere formality for device manufacturers.
To meet the growing requirements for the comprehensive availability of medical documentation within and outside the collecting institutions, medical devices need interoperable interfaces. These are usually based on the DICOM (Digital Imaging and Communication in Medicine) and HL7 (Health Level 7) standards. However, mastering the complexity of these standards and their practical application is usually beyond the core competence of the manufacturers.
