Remote Exam Viewing

Referring clinicians and specialists can have quick and easy access to view patient images and reports stored on the VMI PACS (Picture Archive and Communication System) from their own office computers via a secure weblink.

Images will be available immediately following completion of the patient's exam and reports are generally available within one business day.

Images and reports can be viewed on most devices with internet connection via the website browser (InteleBrowser). Alternately a viewing software can be downloaded (InteleViewer).

Instructions for Viewing CDs

To view data on a CD:

  1. Exit any open applications.
  2. Insert the CD into the CD-ROM drive.
    The INTELEVIEWER software that is saved on the CD launches automatically. The Search tool appears and displays the studies that are available on the CD.
    Note: If you insert a CD for viewing while INTELEVIEWER is already running, you can still open the files. However, the Search tool will differ slightly.
  3. To view a study, double-click it in the Search tool.
    The version of INTELEVIEWER that is included on the CD contains many of the same tools as the full version of INTELEVIEWER. You can use these as you would normally to view or both view and manipulate the DICOM data.

Release of Medical Records

Medical reports and images are available to physicians actively involved with the care of the patient via remote access. There is no charge for this service.

Medical Record Retention

Image and results of patient procedures are archived by each clinic in accordance with recommendations of the BC College of Physicians and Surgeons. An archived file for adult patients will be retained for a period of 16 years after the date of the last visit. An archived file for a minor patient will be retained for 16 years after the minor reaches the age of majority, which is currently 19 years. Once the required time is completed, reports and images will be confidentially destroyed.
