In drug development context, AG Mednet provides an easy to use mechanism enabling sites worldwide to de-identify and transfer cases and associated transmittal forms directly from modalities, PACS or CDs directly to one or more trial repositories.

In the clinical environment, the AG Mednet network enables studies to be seamlessly transferred from remote locations to a central repository. There, the studies can be accessed by interpreting physicians directly from the local PACS through thin clients, or simultaneously delivered to full featured workstations at remote reading rooms, an interpreter’s home or a third party on the network.
