Not difficult. Here is what's involved.Legal
The retention period is configurable and depends on the business agreement in place between the Subscriber and Cortex. This is usually based on the Subscriber's jurisdictional requirements for retention of clinical data.Sharing package:
Sharing of clinical content does not involve long term archiving of clinical data in the Cortex. Data is transferred to and kept in the Cortex solely to facilitate clinical case sharing. The maximum lifetime of a share is configurable and determines how long information associated with the share is kept in Cortex.
Similar to the standalone workstation, the enterprise image viewer becomes visible to Cortex after a free encrypting agent (cloudLink) is installed to interface with the viewer's backend. Once the enterprise viewer becomes visible to Cortex, any exam stored in or shared via Cortex can be brought into the viewer for intranet-based distribution.
Chances are that the enterprise image viewer may also be natively supported by Cortex (running inside the Cortex infrastructure) without the need to transfer image data out of Cortex to the enterprise instance of the web viewer.

No. All patient browsing via Cortex Web Portal is zero footprint for Personal Health Information (PHI), meaning there is no residual patient data left on the connecting computer.
However, if data is transferred into another application (e.g., local PACS system, viewer from another vendor) then that application will naturally control the lifetime and treatment of PHI there.
In order for enterprise systems to send/receive data to/from Cortex, a secure communication channel must be established between the enterprise and Cortex. This can be done via VPN or via Cortex cloudLink.
