The flow of patient information continues long after it is digitized, making it imperative for organizations to adopt an information file sharing approach that can help limit access to patient data, and promotes coordination and integration of medical information for continuity of care, enabling healthcare professionals to collaborate and efficiently track and compile a patient's comprehensive health history. With these needs in mind, Canon offers a wide variety of devices and software solutions that can help to effectively manage patient data from the point of digital capture to transmission and storage. Attendees can also see how Canon devices and software solutions can help increase efficiency and contain printing costs in paper-intensive workflow environments, such as medical records, administrative documents, admissions and discharge.

"Healthcare is an industry like no other. Providers face mounting pressures to adapt their practices to rising costs, changing regulatory requirements and other difficulties that challenge healthcare delivery organizations to remain efficient and profitable. And all this while still providing the highest level quality of care," noted Jamie Bsales, director, Office Workflow Solutions Analysis at BLI. "Not only has Canon demonstrated a strong ability to help organizations face mounting pressures to move from paper records to electronic and reduce costs, it has also shown its ability to leverage its imaging technology expertise to offer a host of solutions beyond document imaging and managed services, including digital radiography and ophthalmic equipment."

Upon authenticating at a Canon devices,  healthcare providers can automatically capture and  route files to information management and workflow solutions, such as Therefore™ and third party systems, allowing them manage and view changes to electronic Protected Health Information (ePHI) in an access controlled, traceable manner. Care providers can also utilize this access controlled exchange of information with third-parties via a variety of Canon solutions capable of integrating with Box™ content collaboration platform to allow the sharing of DICOM® clinical images, billing information and other vital data outside of their organization.

Interoperability with EHR Integration
With the Canon solutions portfolio, medical professionals are able to share patient information across the continuum of care utilizing a variety of security features.

For basic one-to-one voice or video calling solutions, WebRTC has proven to be a very powerful technology. Although WebRTC’s core functionality is to provide secure, real-time p2p media streaming, leveraging native platform features and server-side components brings up new communication capabilities for web and native mobile applications, allowing for advanced multi-user use cases such as video broadcasting, conferencing, and media recording.
WebRTC is about the data channel as much as about video and audio conferencing. However, basically all commercial WebRTC applications have been built with a focus on audio and video. The handling of “data” has been limited to text chat and file download – all other data sharing seems to end with screensharing. What is holding back a more intensive use of peer-to-peer data?
