The Benefits of Using FileCloud in the Healthcare Industry

Storing, Sharing, and Previewing Medical Image Easily and Compliantly

Medicine is hard enough, that’s why the tools the healthcare industry use should make life easier on healthcare professionals, not harder.

That’s where FileCloud comes in. FileCloud is a hyper-secure file sharing and storage tool that lets anyone (even the least technologically-minded) store, share, and review medical files within moments.

And, you’re able to share more than just text files. FileCloud also allows users to store, share, and preview DICOM files.


Digital Imaging and Communications in Medicine (DICOM) is the standard for the communication and management of medical imaging information. DICOM is most commonly used for storing and sharing medical images and integration with medical imaging devices such as scanners, servers, printers, network hardware etc. It has been widely adopted by major hospitals and medical institutions.

With FileCloud, users can store, preview, view, and share DICOM files (such as X-rays, CT scans, Ultrasounds and MRIs) quickly and securely.

These files can also be previewed within FileCloud for quick review or sharing purposes.


HIPAA Compliance

FileCloud doesn’t stop at DICOM images either. Complying with HIPAA is an incredibly important part of medicine now, and compliance most be maintained whether files are stored in paper form, on a hard drive, or online.

Rules like how long healthcare professionals must keep patient files or protecting Protected Health Information (PHI) or Electronic Protected Health Information (e-PHI) are just a small part of this complicated regulation, and non-compliance can result in financial penalties, legal repercussions, and even jail time.

Thankfully, FileCloud has a way to help, with a Compliance Center that has an entire HIPAA tab. This part of the center helps connect these complicated regulations and rules with the security options and compliance tools FileCloud provides, like retention policies, granular sharing policies, and more.


In addition, FileCloud has a wealth of resources related to HIPAA file sharing and how it works in conjunction with FileCloud, like this comprehensive HIPAA white paper.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

What are DICOM images?

DICOM or Digital Imaging and Communications in Medicine is an international standard to relay medical imaging and related data. Similarly, DICOM can also refer to the file format that is used to bundle and store this medical imaging data, often appearing as DCM or DCM30 (DICOM 3.0).

What are DICOM standards?

DICOM is a communication standard for the exchange of medical imaging information between computer systems. This comprehensive standard provides specifications for information content, file structures, code, and protocols for medical images and image-related information. This standard applies to images that are transmitted, stored, retrieved, printed, processed, and displayed.

How big are DICOM files?

DICOM files for a medical imaging procedure, including X-ray, ultrasound, MRI, or CT scans, often include several high-resolution images. As a result, DICOM files are quite large (up to or even exceeding 35 MB), which makes sending them securely via email a challenge.

Can DICOM images be emailed?

Because of the size of most DICOM image sets, they generally exceed email attachment limitations unless they are compressed. Some DICOM viewing software includes an export function, which will automate the compression process, but other applications like FileCloud support large file sharing to retain file quality.

Is DICOM secure?

Traditionally, DICOM files have been relayed to patients or authorized users via compact disc (CD). CDs are loaded with image files, a DICOM reader, and information about the data origins. Recently, it has been found that these CD files could be manipulated without alerting users to the changes.

How to view DICOM files?

DICOM files can be viewed through a DICOM reader, often included on a CD or USB. Free DICOM readers are also available online, but these may not offer appropriate levels of security. FileCloud is a secure file storage and sharing platform that supports DICOM image viewing and storage.

Is DICOM encrypted?

DICOM images are not automatically encrypted, though they do need a special software to access the file extension. DICOM viewers are often included in the USB or CD with the DICOM files. FileCloud supports DICOM files and offers secure, fast encryption for data at rest and in transit.
