Description: Centricity Universal Viewer (CUV) is a unified, web-based Picture Archiving and Communication System (PACS) workspace for radiologists, cardiologists, and clinicians. The software is designed to provide enhanced usability and access, advanced visualization, breast imaging, and cardiology image review and analysis. Users can read and review radiological and cardiology images and patient reports, as well as run diagnostic tools. Centricity Universal Viewer (CUV) is a component of Centricity Cardio Enterprise (CCE).

Centricity Universal Viewer connects to modalities via standard Digital Imaging and Communications in Medicine (DICOM) communication (X-ray and Ultrasound). These connections are used to send the DICOM Modality Worklist from the servers to the modalities and to send the images from the modalities to the servers. Interfaces from the servers to the Veterans Information Systems and Technology Architecture (VistA) and Computerized Patient Record System (CPRS) are standard Health Level Seven (HL7) communication. CUV software stores all patient data in a Microsoft Structured Query Language (SQL) Server database on the Enterprise Archive. Database data encryption has not been tested for this product. No patient data or Protected Health Information (PHI) is stored to the client once the application is closed. During the viewing session, PHI and patient data are stored to Random Access Memory (RAM) and the hard drive, but is deleted when the application is closed. The data that is transferred between the client and servers can be encrypted using Secure Sockets Layer (SSL)/Transport Layer Security (TLS) with the Microsoft Internet Information Services (IIS) Server on the Enterprise Archive, which will encrypt the data communication.
Technology/Standard Usage Requirements: Users must ensure their use of this technology/standard is consistent with VA policies and standards, including, but not limited to, VA Handbooks 6102 and 6500; VA Directives 6004, 6513, and 6517; and National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) standards, including Federal Information Processing Standards (FIPS). Users must ensure sensitive data is properly protected in compliance with all VA regulations. Prior to use of this technology, users should check with their supervisor, Information Security Officer (ISO), Facility Chief Information Officer (CIO), or local Office of Information and Technology (OI&T) representative to ensure that all actions are consistent with current VA policies and procedures prior to implementation.
Section 508 Information: This technology has not been assessed by the Section 508 Office. The Implementer of this technology has the responsibility to ensure the version deployed is 508-compliant. Section 508 compliance may be reviewed by the Section 508 Office and appropriate remedial action required if necessary.
