One of the major challenges in many clinical trials is the ability to route all the imaging data to one secure location.
Each remote site is provided with a custom pipeline to de-identify, anonymize and then send local DICOM images to a QIPCM-hosted centralized PACS, thereby removing the risks of uploading images to an external cloud or sending by DVD. Documentation is provided by the QIPCM Group to guide usage of the pipeline. This documentation is intended for staff at clinical trial image acquisition sites who are responsible for selecting and sending studies to the QIPCM Imaging Trials Server.
Images stored on the QIPCM PACS are permissioned on a trial-by-trial basis and access is logged.
