Altamont Software, a provider of enterprise medical imaging connectivity solutions, has announced the 500th installation of its Connectivity Platform. This milestone underscores the platform’s growing acceptance and utility across the healthcare industry. Recent installations include prominent healthcare facilities such as Quinte Health Care, UAB Medical West, St. Mary’s Regional Hospital—Intermountain Health, and Froedtert South.

The Connectivity Platform by Altamont Software is designed to offer a comprehensive and integrated approach to medical imaging connectivity. It facilitates seamless access to all medical imaging information through the EHR. It provides a unified toolset for managing various applications, including document integration, SR data integration, digital media, eForms, photo, and video capture. One of its key advantages is its ability to integrate non-DICOM data across the healthcare enterprise, streamlining processes and improving operational efficiency.

Key benefits of the Connectivity Platform include:

  • Simplified and centralized management of medical imaging input/output accessories.
  • Time savings when implementing multiple products across health systems.
  • Operational insights into the usage of all integrated solutions.
  • Reduced need for training on new products.
  • An integrated, single-vendor approach that simplifies contracting.
  • Elimination of client application licensing.

Milton Sanchez, MBA, Manager of Enterprise Imaging Information Technology at Nicklaus Children’s Health System, highlighted the platform’s impact on operational efficiency. “Altamont’s Connectivity Platform enables clinical IT to more quickly and easily implement and manage connectivity applications remotely,” Sanchez remarked. “My team no longer must travel from facility to facility to support these applications.” Sanchez’s comments reflect the significant reduction in logistical challenges and support requirements, a testament to the platform’s effectiveness.

Chris Barnett, President and Co-Founder of Altamont Software, reflected on the company’s vision and the platform’s evolution. “When we started Altamont Software, our goal was to update how medical imaging connectivity tools were managed and deployed,” Barnett stated. “The Connectivity Platform is our manifestation of that strategy.” Barnett’s vision highlights the platform’s role in transforming legacy systems into a more modern, integrated solution.

Historically, medical imaging connectivity software has been implemented as stand-alone desktop applications, posing challenges such as individual desktop licensing, configuration, and lack of centralized management. The Connectivity Platform addresses these issues by providing a centralized, enterprise-level solution that enhances EHR integration, simplifies product management, and improves overall efficiency in healthcare IT environments.

The success of healthcare IT solutions like the Connectivity Platform signifies a transformative shift in the healthcare industry toward more integrated, efficient, and scalable technological infrastructures. By centralizing and streamlining the management of medical imaging and connectivity applications, such platforms reduce operational complexities and enhance the quality of care. This success underscores the growing importance of interoperability and real-time data accessibility in clinical settings, leading to improved patient outcomes, reduced administrative burdens, and lower costs. Altamont’s achievement sets a precedent for innovation in healthcare IT, encouraging the adoption of advanced solutions that can adapt to the dynamic needs of modern healthcare environments, thereby paving the way for more cohesive and effective healthcare delivery systems.

Altamont Software will showcase the benefits of its Connectivity Platform and its suite of applications at the upcoming Society for Imaging Informatics in Medicine (SIIM) Annual Meeting. Attendees can visit Altamont Software at Booth 513 to learn more about how the Connectivity Platform can enhance radiologist and technologist productivity.
