Seattle, WA (November 27, 2011) – OneMedNet Corporation, provider of BEAM™, the industry-leading, peer-to-peer (P2P) network for securely sharing medical images, announced today that the company has been granted patent 8,065,166 by the United States Patent and Trademark Office for its BEAM technology as a method, system and device for transferring medical images and records.
BEAM by OneMedNet’s patented P2P technology was developed to enable rapid and secure transfer of medical images and files directly between providers. Under the hood, BEAM includes approval-based transfer protocols, one-time-use paired encryption keys, patient data reconciliation and electronic auditing. This patented technology streamlines and simplifies secure medical information sharing, thereby maximizing efficiency.
“BEAM’s unique peer-to-peer medical image sharing technology is now protected by patent,” remarked Bing Teng, CEO of OneMedNet Corporation. “This reaffirms our commitment to develop and deliver high value innovation to healthcare providers. By securely linking providers together through the BEAM network, we help them improve clinical efficiency and responsiveness which leads to better patient care.”
With patented P2P study exchange, BEAM is the most secure and direct way to share medical files. Using BEAM for direct transfers aids in preventing unauthorized access to patient data because open connections from outside entities are not allowed through BEAM, and P2P connections are only established for the duration of a transfer. Moreover, transfers are authorized and logged to ensure each is identified, tracked and auditable for HIPAA compliance. Finally, BEAM performs patient data reconciliation that identifies the local patient and automatically substitutes the appropriate patient identifiers during the transfer in order to maintain one single patient record appropriate to that location. BEAM’s patented P2P technology takes the complexity out of image sharing and makes it fast, secure and simple.
