e-pacs Storage Service for x-ray data successfully passed 3rd recertification.
e-pacs is a central digital image data archive. It files x-ray and other medical data and is used by radiologists, hospitals and physicians in private praxis.
Since receiving the seal for e-pacs for the first time in 2008, Telepaxx Medical Archiving GmbH succeeded in preserving it. The current recertification is the third one after previous recertifications in 2011 and 2013.
The service mainly comprises two components: The e-pacs department server located at the customer’s site and the e-pacs deep storage server located at Telepaxx’ premises. Medical data are encrypted prior to their transmission from the department server to the deep storage server. Moreover, instead of patient names, pseudonyms are transmitted as part of the header data. Thus, Telepaxx cannot access the x-ray image data and does not receive any personal information about the patients concerned.
Further information about the 2015 recertification is available here.
