Description: eFilm Workstation is a stand-alone medical imaging application used to view, manipulate, and manage medical images. eFilm Workstation provides users a full diagnostic quality workstation and image review station as well as functionality for dedicated Compact Disc (CD)/Digital Versatile Disc (DVD) burning and Digital Imaging and Communications in Medicine (DICOM) printing. Digital images can be displayed, analyzed, processed, and stored on workstations and laptops using this software. When viewing images, users can adjust window width and level, perform image stacking, annotate and measure regions of interest, and perform various other image alterations.

Upon installation, this technology configures a Microsoft Structured Query Language (SQL) Server database to store data. Per the vendor, this technology includes additional encryption capabilities for when Personally Identifiable Information (PII)/Protected Health Information (PHI) is stored in this database.

eFilm Workstation has optional functionality to connect to iConnect Cloud, a cloud-based image storage and management technology.

The TRM decisions in this entry only apply to technologies and versions owned, operated, managed, patched, and version-controlled by VA. This includes technologies deployed as software installations on VMs within VA-controlled cloud environments (e.g. VA Enterprise Cloud (VAEC)). Cloud services provided by the VAEC, which are listed in the VAEC Service Catalog, and those controlled and managed by an external Cloud Service Provider (i.e. SaaS) are not in the purview of the TRM. For more information on the use of cloud services and cloud-based products within VA, including VA private clouds, please see the Enterprise Cloud Solutions Office (ECSO) Portal at:
